Question about Samsung HTP-1200 System
First poblem. I have a dog that likes chewing things. She managed to chew the din cable connecting the DVD to the sub woofer. I was going to replace it with an original one which Samsung stated howver this was £75 instead I found and identicall one cousting £25. However I am now getting "white type noise" Through all speakers. It isn't conitnous it "pulses" These pulses increase as you turn the volume dial. I have checked and cleaned this with no avail. Is the cable the problem or has the chewing of the cable knackered the insides of the unit.
Also now the DVD/CD player has stopped working. The unit will happily play a CD However when I attempted to play a DVD the disc spins in the unit and the laser doesn't seem to pick up any info from the disc. The unit will then display no disc inserted.
Your help will much appreciated.
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.
