Sony BDP-6700 3D Blu-ray player...all of a sudden it wonít play DTS encode?

So, Iíve got another anomaly with this region free Sony BDP-6700 3D Blu-ray player.

All of a sudden it wonít play DTS signal through audio system, only tv speakers, but also uses audio speakers bc when I lower the volume, the sound goes lower too, while Iím not affecting tv up or down sound. Tried two 3D discs both with 7.1 dts. It always played fine before. Plays Atmos which down codes to DD 7.1 just fine. It will play through tv speakers, but not damn audio system. Is it the player? On its way out? Won't play 5.1 DTS either.

Any help would be appreciated.

I did check online for workaround and told me to switch audio option on tv to PCM. I did and DTS 7.1 played fine on player through audio system, but Iím downscaling sound a lot, right? What is this PCM thing and why when I change PCM option it plays through audio speakers again? i never had to do this before.

It always played fine through audio system. Didnít even think that was issue bc when I played a new 3D Blu I bought, the 7.1 through audio didnít work, but other Dolby Digital descriptive 2.0 track on same disc, played fine as did French whatever. So thought Blu had bad sound encode is all and was going try to get replaced.

Going to be annoying if all DTS wonít play and keep switching to I think worse audio with PCM which I know compressed is in there. probably wrong though.

thx in advance.

No. It’s old and warranty up. I’m sure no luck with them, but I guess I can try. Thx.

Unplugging the unit and resetting it solves about 50% of all issues with modern electronics. I have to do it occasionally even on my vaunted Oppo players.

I’ve tried that a couple times. One longer than the last. No go. How long unplugged is considered reset? Any other way to reset a region free player? Thx PS.

When using PCM, what that means is the player handles the decoding and then it sends the lossless audio over HDMI. It's the same sound quality as sending the DTS over HDMI and having your receiver decode it.

Thanks so much PS. So I’m not losing anything in sound? Because I know when I put player back to auto and it decodes DD 7.1 for example, it plays so much fuller, so much louder. And if I leave it on pcm when a Dolby Digital disc is playing, it sounds very low and terrible. Thanks again and putting self at ease.
