HTS3440 Philips No Sounds from Subwoofer

I have a Philips Magnavox HTS3440 system.  I am getting very low audible sound from the smaller speakers and no sound from the subwoofer at all.  I have tried checking the settings and there is nothing unusual/that has been changed.  It used to loose sound when a loud action scene came on but now there is just no sound from the subwoofer and very little from the rest.  DVD works fine.  Only issues are the sound.  Please help!

Where do the cables go for pic and sound


You can find the manual here if you need a copy.

This system was sold with speakers and connecting cables. One cable connects from the main unit to the subwoofer. The rest of the speakers supplied with the system plug into the subwoofer with their special connecting cables. If you don't have the subwoofer and satellite speakers along with the cables, you can't get sound out of this system. There is no built-in amplifier and no way to connect speakers otherwise.

The video connection to your monitor or TV is from the rear panel on the main unit. You can use an s-video cable, composite video (a single cable with RCA plugs) or component video (3 RCA cables), depending on the inputs supplied on the TV. Component video gives best performance if the TV supports it.

I only have 5 speakers and subwoofer of hts3450. how do I connect these to optoma dv11


You don't...

The speakers will still need their electronics to operate from the audio source.

Proprietary connectors are a clue that the base and the speakers are a set not to be mixed or matched with standardized audio components.

I have the home theater system model HTS3440/37. I've had this for a couple of years, and now all of a sudden, it won't read any discs. It comes up after a couple of seconds and says "No Disc"....


Well, let's see.

A) A whole used HTS3440 is available on eBay for $102 delivered.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Philips-HTS-3440-Home-Theater-System-/150532939141?pt=Home_Theater_in_a_Box&hash=item230c765d85

B) A compatible HTS3450 base unit goes for $79 delivered...
http://cgi.ebay.com/Philips-HTS3450-HomeTheater-Receiver-HTS3450-37-/360338243552?pt=Home_Theater_in_a_Box&hash=item53e5d53fe0

C) Connect a new or existing outboard DVD/BluRay player to it.

Proprietary connectors usually imply proprietary function. Home Theater in a Box runs that way and are typically Not Economically Repairable.

Though it may be possible to construct cabling that adapts 'normal' standardized audio to your HTIB speakers, is it really worth it?

I'd got with option C as it would be a better investment in equipment with longevity and forward compatibility.

Can we use the subwoofer as an amplifier for speakers? it has jacks for speaker in/out, but i can't figure out how to make it work because the speakers have no sound.


I don't believe this hookup is amplified; but, if you have used the regular unfiltered speaker connections from your receiver/amplifier to hookup the subwoofer, the system will pass the signal thru the outputs subject to the crossover adjustment on the back panel. You cannot get the full signal if your system is sending only the bass signal to the subwoofer. I have copied the instructions below from the manual. You would set the high freq crossover to the low end of your satellite's frequency range. The full manual is here: http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Products/Pages/ProductSupportDetails.aspx?PID=PSW-D110

High-Pass Control
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
3 on page 4, you also have
the capability of adjusting
the high-pass frequency.
The High-Pass control
determines the frequency at
which the main speakers
will start reproducing
sounds. If your main speakers
can comfortably reproduce
some low-frequency
sounds, also set this control
to a lower frequency
setting, between 50Hz –
100Hz. This will concentrate
the subwoofer’s
efforts to the ultradeep
bass sounds, while your
main speakers continue to
reproduce the mid-bass
information. If you are
using smaller bookshelf
speakers that do not extend
to the lower bass frequencies,
set the high-pass crossover
control to a higher setting,
between 125Hz – 180Hz.
With this setting, your main
speakers will not have the
burden of reproducing any
low-frequency sounds.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
1 on page 3, the high-pass
frequency is fixed at 180Hz.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
2 on page 4, there is no
high-pass control. Unless
your receiver/amplifier
incorporates a high-pass
crossover, your main speakers
will continue to get a
full-range signal.
Final adjustment and blending
of the low-pass and high-pass
controls may evolve over several
listening sessions. A good
starting point would be to set
both the low- and high-pass
controls to the same frequency
and adjust from that point.

Speakers are skipping. source of problem is subwoofer or disc player


hello,
the problem is from the disc player, it could be the disc plate that was inserted, that is it may be dirty or scratch.
clean disc plate with methylated spirit before inserted.
And it could also be from the lens itself, that is it may be weak in which it need replacement.
Hope this help....

I have the philips hts3440/37 none of the speakers work.


Doubtful that it is as serious as a fuse, unless it was working before and now it's not.

Are you getting no sound when watching DVD's? Try adjusting the volume on the home theater system - press the SURR button until it says "Dolby" or something like that.

Make sure it is connected like this:

Please help me!!


There are a few possibilities.
1)You can connect a red and white AV cable (or the red and white portion of a red, white and yellow cable) from the TV Audio OUTPUT to the "Audio In/TV" portion of the HTS (NOTE: Many TV's do not have an Audio OUTPUT).

2)You can connect a red and white AV cable (or the red and white portion of a red, white and yellow cable) from the Audio OUTPUT of your cable or satellite box to the "Audio In/TV" portion of the HTS.

Note: Using a red and white cable may not give you sound on all 5 speakers.

3)Get a digital audio or SPDIF cable and run it from the TV, Cable or Satellite Box's Digital Audio OUT to the "DIGITAL IN" of the HTS. This will give you the best sound quality. When using this (or any of the other) type of connection, press SURR until you get sound from all 5 speakers.

Also, the manual can be obtained from www.usasupport.philips.com
