Default rear surround went out on Sony dvd player?

Sounds fine from the front channels, but nothing from the rear. Changed out the dvd player, and everything works fine. What the hell?

If its not the DVD player, it could be your processor's surround decoder (not likely.)

More than likely its Sony's recent reliability issues. Unfortunately their mass market electronics have plummeted quality control-wise, with perhaps most of the complaints coming from owners of their mid-low fi DVD players (I was one of them). Its unlikely that I'll ever buy another Sony A/V component again

In any event, its probably a greater hassle (timewise and financially) to try and repair it than to get a new player.

When you put on a new DVD, make sure you check the settings for Audio Setup or Language Setup for each disc.

Is it possible that another user that is not as"inclined" changed a setting on the player?

I had a tough time seeing the DTS on my system, until I found out the setting can be under language...which is logical, but not practical. How embarrassing.

i have a sony 707 (the jap version of the 725) and had the exact same problem.

it was simply fixed in the player setting, just change the output from PCM to DOlby Digital.

If that doesnt fix it, take it in to your nearest sony dealership, if they cant help, find the nearest rubbish bin, lob it in and go buy yourself either the marantz 4100, the arcam or the pioneer 535, 636, 737 etc
