    I have the same problem, first I noticed that it took the sound awhile to come on and then the speakers began to have a hum or buzz to them, I also noticed that it took the power light on the front to change from red to green and now there is nothing, please help as i tried to get help from Philips and they told me that I just needed to purchase a new system, I guess to Philips are money is just disposable now days.

    Ours did the same thing, specifically with the hum/buzz initially. Now no sound at all, and Philips tells me they have no options for me as far as service. Anyone fixed this problem successfully? I, too, hate the thought of buying an entire new system.

Usaj-
Thanks for the post. This was an easy fix. Mine has been out since Hurricane Rita started the condition. The parts are readily available at the local Radio Shack & most anyone has eyes better than mine to soldier the fix. Just be careful with the three-conductor molex connector is a bit shortchanged on slack when trying to remove/unplug from the Subwoofer chassis. Thanks again & good luck!

As I found somewhere on the internet; there are two 470uF/25V capacitors on the power supply board in the sub-woofer that are the cause of buzzing, crackling and then eventually no sound. Go to Radio Shack and buy two Catalog #: 272-1030 470uF/35V capacitors and change them out. They are in the middle of the Power Supply PCB and are close to the long flat aluminum heatsink. Make sure you match the polarity properly when replacing. Your unit will be as good as new and will proibably last forever now.

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

Rear speakers do not work , also in set up menu they are grayed out.


hi there

when playing radio, the rear speakers do work because you have configured that. in your dvd player however, you may not have configured it yet.

Correctly insert the jacks at the back of the dvd player and at the same time, check the menu of your dvd player and check the audio settings. Under the audio settings of your dvd player menu, select the 5.1 or 6.1 audio profile.

hope this helps.

If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

I just bought a RCA rtd3131 home theater system. My husband trashed the manual and i can't get all the speakers to work when the cable is on. When the DVD is on all the speakers work but the sound is not...


If the cable tv has audio out jacks, or if you have a cable box with an optical audio cable, plug either the audio jacks into the RCA system or the optical audio cable, and the system should automatically simulate 5.1, through Dolby Pro Logic II. All speakers will not be at the same volume as they are simulating surround sound, not just playing the audio.

The TV will never have sound for the DVD as this system has no audio out puts. Realistically, most televisions have 10w speakers, and this system is 130w, so the TV speakers are useless in comparison.
