I have the HTP-1200 Samsung unit for roughly 2-3 years. Now, during movies, dvds, using the computer combined with the system; whatever I am doing, the unit makes a "snowy television" noise and will no longer function. The unit must be turned off and left off for however long before it produces sound from any input. Also, there is a red light on the back of the subwoofer that indicates, to me, that the unit is working. In the process of malfunctioning this light goes off and again I must turn the unit off for however long and then turn it back on in hopes the light will be on and I will have sound again. If you have any information please send replies to astrogameguy at yahoo dot com. Thank you in advance for your help; I am litterally at my wits end and I hope you can tell me I get to throw this thing out of the window. Thanks again.
Noot a hundred percent sure but its sounds as though the amplifier unit is overheating and cutting out. Thats why after a while the unit will work again. Is the fan at the rear of the unit working. I had a problem with the fan cutting out and was an easy fix !
That is an interesting idea. It does have the symptom of overheating. I will check that out...what do you recommend to fix the fan? Replace it or just get another subwoofer? Thank you for the help that makes perfect sense.

I wonder whether your system stood around gathering dust for a while when you were looking for a new cable and that you now have dust on the lense. That could explain the inability to play DVDs and perhaps the noise also.
Could I suggest that you try a lens-cleaning CD, or if you can get at the lens, you could try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol (iso-propyl alcohol) or meths on a cotton-bud.
Chewing the cable could always have shorted something and blown a fuse, or worse, but these don't sound like those types of faults to me.
Firstly connect your home theatre outpu HDMI to HDMI input1 on the TV. Then connect the PS£ HDMI to the other HDMI input on the TV. Now connected the optical cable from the PS3 to the optical input of the home cinema system. Your should now have surround sound from the PS3 and DVD.
I dont think its connected.
anyway, make sure DVD is clean and unscratched.
If it wont help and these are commercial DVDs, then there is probably something wrong with them. If they are home made DVDs, then it may be that your player doesn't handle them well and you can try to burn it a other dvd format... look in you r manual to find out which format are compatible..
