Why would a DVD player have no sound?
If it's new then it could be hooked up wrong. If it isn't new then you could have done what I did by mistake and hit the "mute" button on your controls. Look for the mute button and click it. Hopefully this is all that's wrong.
If it's old...that could be the problem. My CyberHome DVD player, after lots of service, sometimes would play DVD 's without the sound . Usually after resetting (turned off, and maybe unplugged) it would play sound again, for a while.
You could also try this:
For a CyberHome DVD player that plays no sound when watching DVD's, another option that worked for me without resetting it or shutting it off was to place a music CD in the player. Once it played the music CD with sound, eject it and put the DVD back in. Works without fail unless the sound is really messed up.
Most DVD players offer 5.1 surround sound output, so really any of those, however if you are looking for the best quality, more expensive ones are usually the way to go. I would however recomend buying the Toshiba A3 HD-DVD player, it is backwards compatible with DVDs and has great image and sound quality. Probably about the same price as the top of the line DVD player.
There are a number of possible reasons for a DVD not to play on a DVD player. In an effort to reduce piracy, DVDs and DVD players are designed for a group of large geographical zones, and a DVD intended for the European zone will not play on an American DVD player. Aside from that, the DVD could be damaged, or the DVD player could be damaged. Or not plugged in.
When considering the purchase of a Toshiba DVD player over a Sony DVD player, one has to consider the type, quality, and cost of each. All DVD players are compatible to every brand of tv's, but many Sony DVD players offer more options when paired with a Sony tv. If you have a Sony tv, I would recommend a Sony DVD player.
this probably occurred due to the fact that not all DVD players are designed the same. i have a number of DVDs in my DVD library which states on the DVD storage case that some features may not play in all DVD players. therefore, it depends on which brand of DVD player you have. if you continue to experience difficulty playing your DVDs, i would suggest that you contact the manufacturer of your DVD player…
Are there any cd players that can double as dvd players if hooked up to a computer or to a vga monitor?
Either the player is wearing out or the DVD is badly scratched and therefore it cannot play anymore. A solution would be to either get a new DVD player if thhe player is the problem, or buy a new disc of the movie if the disc is the problem. You can even purchase a DVD player lens cleaner which is actually a DVD that cleans the gears inside the player.
