If you are watching a movie or TV show and the sound is too low to hear the dialogue clearly, it can be frustrating. It may seem like you are going deaf, but there are a number of reasons why your TV’s volume is too low, and they are all easy to resolve.
The problem could be a simple fix such as reconfiguring the speaker settings or using a different connection cable. Another possibility is that you have an external device connected to your TV, such as a DVD player or streaming media device. This can also affect the sound quality and cause the volume to stay low even when your TV is at its maximum setting.
Most modern TVs have power-saving settings to reduce their brightness and energy use. They also come with pre-set Picture modes, which change the contrast, colour and other settings to suit your viewing habits. The best picture mode to use is usually standard, as it uses the least amount of electricity, but some TV’s have a “Eco” mode which automatically adjusts the brightness throughout the day.
Many new TV’s have a motion smoothing feature which is designed to reduce blurring on fast-moving scenes, especially in sports and action movies. This can make the image look very realistic, but for serious gamers who want to see the smallest details of their games, it is often better to disable motion smoothing.
Input lag is the time it takes for the TV to receive the video signal, process it and then display it on screen. This can be very annoying for gamers who need to respond quickly to events on the screen. Some TV’s have built-in input lag measuring tools which will let you know how good or bad it is. If it is very high, then you can try turning off motion smoothing to get a faster response.
Using a sound equalizer can help you get your TV’s audio back to normal, and it is easy to use. There will be a set of controls listed by sound frequency (bass, mid, and treble). Lowering the bass and increasing the treble will improve speech intelligibility and increase the impact of explosions in movies. The opposite is true, as well; lowering the treble and increasing the bass will give your music and movie sounds a more full, rich sound.
Some people tape their TV’s speaker grille to lower the sound, but we don’t recommend this. It spoils the look of your TV and makes the audio sound muffled. Besides, it is a poor substitute for properly adjusting your TV’s audio settings.
Some people mount their TV’s to the wall, but they can end up with a crooked picture because of the tilt and other problems in the room. A good solution is to install a TV lift, such as the TY-05-40, which can lower the TV down and raise it up when not in use. It can be controlled with a remote, so you can easily adjust it to the ideal position for your home. lowering TV’s
