DVD Sound

I have posted this problem on dvd sites but getting no replies so posted it on here as I get a lot of help here with pc.
""The sound on SD290EKB DVD Player is poor. I have to put the volume on tv very high. Is it this type of dvd player""

The manual states that it has a "night mode" which appears to give low volume. I wonder if this has been set on click here$FILE/Final%20full%20English%[email protected]

Apologies for the link. It should have been to page 21 of the manual.

Check SCART Cables do not have any bent or missing pins and are pushed fully home.

A quick scan of specs is unclear on surround sound and whether it has it or not.

Anyway check you haven't setup wrong.

I am not a surround sound expert so cannot comment further, but wrong volumes rings a bell.

I suspect robinofloxley's suggestion is a good starting point. I recently recorded a programme through a STB and the recording had no sound at all. On investigating I discovered that the STB was giving zero sound until I pressed the scart plug firmly in. Then all was well.

night mode is off and scart seems okay

What are you connecting to just the tv ? its meant to output audio via co axial to a surround amp

Jim63 how and what are you connected to I mean are you just connected to a tv idf so scart is all you have or do you also have a surround sound system

Just gold plated scart straight to tv

Ok then you need to check your Players manual for audio settings as you may need to set it for basic stereo or some kind of mixdown.\as you cannot put dolby surround through the scart .Also onthe dvd itself have you tried selecting Stereoas opposed to the surround options You might also check in your TV manual whether you can set levels for different inputs thats there to save having to change volume everytime you go from direct tv to any other input
