Hello, I read about the solution (capacitors), but still havent done it. My HTS 3450 plays DVD image but since 1 month ago there is no sound and the subwoffer doesnt turns on (no red or green light); not sure what to to.
I have a similar problem. I inspected the power board and found IC901 burned completely. I cannot find out the part number and have tried to get a reply from phillips but have not heard back from them. Anyone have a schematic or can give me the part # of IC901?

Wide open one here. Is your tv coming in direct from the wall or do you have a cable/digital box that you need to get the signal from? If you have a box then make sure you are plugged into the audio out on the box and on the HTS you are on the audio in. There will be a left and right. If you have the sound to your tv then you can plug into the audio out on your tv and again plug into your audio in on your box. If your tv has an option for external speakers then you need to make that adjustment on the audio menu on your tv. Also make sure that the proper channel is selected on your HTS and that your audio output matches your selection. Hope this helps but I will keep an eye out for further posts.
Please follow the instructions below for unlocking your Philips HTS 3371 Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.
1. Switch the DVD player ON 2. OPEN the disc tray 3. Key 9 9 9 9 0 using the Philips remote control supplied with the player 4. Press PLAY. The disc tray will close. 5. Switch the player OFF then switch ON again. 6. To test, play a disc from a region which was previously locked.
If it does not work the first time, switch the player off and back on, then try again.
This is a verified unlock method, but I was unable to confirm whether it works for players sold locked to Region 1 (North America). If you have a Region 1 player and the method above does not work, you will not be able to unlock your player.
When a disk is stuck inside the player , try following the procedure below:
Unplug power cord. Plug back power. Turn on the unit and press repeatedly the eject button at the same time. If you successeed in ejecting the disk before the player starts reading TOC(disk initial track), then the disk will eject. If that does not work, then there is an internal fault, in that case the unit must be taken apart to remove the disk.
I bought this item in Nov. of '07 and it worked great...for about 3 months then the dreaded no disc message appeared and has ruined my life. Howvever after not using this DVD player for a month or so i had decided to tinker with it to try and get it to work and it appears i have found a solution that is working for me so far. After being fed up with Philips and trying their "solutions" because as we all know the U.S. sells DVD's with the wrong region code (ha funny Philips people) i began trying to make this stupid peice of garbage work in any way. What i came up with is this: 1.) insert your DVD and wait to see what happens. When you get the no disc readings this is what you do. 2) Eject the dvd but do not touch it 3). While the dvd is sitting in the slot press and hold down the play button on the remote control and continue to hold it down 4) it may take awhile but give it a chance, and hopefully the DVD will "resume play" and start anew. If holding the play button down does nothing then try holding it and releasing it in intervals until something happens. If nothing ever happens then i guess you SOL. I know this is not an desired fix to the problem but so far it has worked for me. I noticed this because the stupid thing will would read a cd and this got me thinking. This way is kind of a jump start to get the dvd going....hope this helps someone
