Philips Soundbar HTS8100

My phillips sound bar will not play DVDs. It just says reading disc and the disc starts and re starts spinning and nothing happens.

I think this is to do with an regeion unlock code I was given as after I imputted the code it stopped working a few days later?

Can you help

    I have the same problem just started doing this in the last week or so.

    Seems to play Audio CD's perfect

    read somewhere else problem could be lack of power to the laser, apparently it takes more power for it to read dvds than audio tracks, also apparently its possible to adjust the laser power but dont know how to do this.....

    Anyone know how to up the power to the laser?

Hi, My HTS8100 only gives some static noise, no matter which source I select.
Anyone had similar problem? Does it need a repair?

Why won't my CD Player won't play CD's?


the laser that reads the cd is probably dirty - if you have a can of compressed air - insert the nozzle into the cd player and blast away any dust and debris - if this doesn't help - there are cd cleaning discs available at any major retailer - just insert the cd and it cleans the laser - worst case scenario - buy a new cd player - the prices have really come down - I replaced mine with the trim kit and wire harness for $100 - only took about 1 hour - but you do need to buy the Ford stereo removal tools (available also at any good stereo store)

I have a 1970's Panasonic Flip Clock Radio. (Model RC6530) The radio works just fine, but the flp clock stopped flipping. There is power going to the unit. I can also hear a low hum from the flip...


It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.

Wailing sound when 1971 seeburg juke box is started


I amnot very familiar with Seeburgs but the trip switch activates at the end of the record playing and THAT mutes the amp. The amp should also be muted until the tone arm lands on the record. So I would suggest the problem is in the amp.
