Question about Philips MX3700D Digital Surround Sound Receiver System System

Open Question

Weak sound with Philips MX3600D

The system works perfect when I play a DVD, but when using the TV there is very little sound coming from the speakers and the center one has no sound at all. I've turned the speakers off in the TV. ( Sony WEGA ) but that did not fix the problem. I have to turn it up to max and still do not have a good sound. Thank you for your help.

Ok looks llike a lens problem..Try this
Get a lens cleaner CD with liquid..Put two drops of liquid on the brush of the lens cleaner..insert the CD in your drive and play it..If it plays fine otherwise you will need to replace the lens..Get it replaced rather..should run you about 25-50$.If you want to get it repaired give it for repair only in a Philips showroom..
Good luck!

Same problem here with HTS3357/12... This system is also REALLY **** from an electronics point of view (I have checked inside and I know what I am talking about), that's the reason why the sound is so horrible on the front and rear speaker.It is as simple as a SCAM.
No more Philips for me.

SOURCE: Just bought a Philips home theatre system HTS3544 low sound?

You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.

I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.

Same problem with my HTS8100. Little-to-no sound. Sometimes sound comes on very intermittently. I downloaded the software patch from the Philips website and installed it. This fixed the sound problem for about a week, then the problem came back. I'm not sure what else to do.

I want to use my TV's speakers with Samsung ht320z not surround sound.How?


You have to hook up the audio cables to the TV from the DVD stand alone player. Red and White is audio and Yellow is Video. The player will play movies and the sound should go to your TV speakers. If not you will need to set it on the TV in the audio source to play from your speakers on the TV. John

Check what type of Audio input it has on it. It should either have an Optical Audio input(glowing red while unit is turned on) or an Audio input(red and white jacks) You would run the correct cable from the Audio Output on your tv, To the Audio Input on your surround sound reciever. Let me know if this helps solve your problem.

When I play a CD or DVD the sound plays normally, but when we try to watch TV the volume has to be adjusted to maximum and we can still barely here it.


thats correct man if your running sound from your tv to the reciever it is sharing the signal strenghth with the reciever and i will sound very weak the only way to correct that is to turn off your tv speakers and use your reciever as your primary sound source for the tv sound

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System


Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.

No sound through TV


In case you connect the System to a TV set using the Scart Connector, only the video signal is terminated, Audio is actually not wired inside the SB100 Scart connector.
Sound will only be amplified through the system itself (through the satelites and Sub) it can not be utilized as a stand-alone DVD player.
So after connecting your surround speakers the problem will be solved
