Common problem with the Philips - here is how to fix this issue:
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

SOURCE: only 2 of my 5 speakers are working

Press the SURR button until you get sound on all five speakers. If you don't get sound on all 5, there are a few possibilities:
1) the program you are watching only gets stereo sound or lower (only two or one speaker will play in this case)
2) you need to get a digital audio cable instead of using the red/white AV cable
3) a setting on the TV, cable, or satellite box needs to be changed to allow surround sound in full

SOURCE: Philips HTS3357/05 home cinema system

Same problem here with HTS3357/12... This system is also REALLY **** from an electronics point of view (I have checked inside and I know what I am talking about), that's the reason why the sound is so horrible on the front and rear speaker.It is as simple as a SCAM.
No more Philips for me.

In a 2004 Lincoln Navigator if you play a DVD but hook headphones up for the sound can you play the radio at the same time

No. The radio uses the same circuits as the DVD audio to get sound to the speakers. The headphones only divert the audio from the speakers to the headphones.

How can I get sound from my radio

If a cable speaker is shorted to ground or (in your case) the short was on the casing the radio mutes the output to save the amp. So
remove all cables and put them back to the radio & connect the speakers one by one to see if it works or mutes again

A friend recently gave me a Pioneer deh-p5750mp car stereo cd player and I'm having trouble installing it. I have successfully managed to connect the positive, earth and constant power wires and...

One thing to remember about most radios, the RCA pre amp circuit will still work even if the mosfet power amp inside the radio does not. The best way to know if the amp inside the radio works is to use one matching color pair coming off the radio to wire up a random speaker right to the radio. You can use just about any old random 4 ohm speaker that is laying around to check it. The best solution if the amp inside the radio is blown is to replace the radio or amp the pre amp outputs with a small 4 channel amp. Oh, by the way. What vehicle are you connecting this into? And does the vehicle say Bose, Infinity, or ect sound or Premium sound? These usually denote a factory amplifyer already onboard and requires special connections to get the signal to these amps to then be delivered to the speakers.

Truck Radio/CD Player, no sound coming out of speakers

Have you check the mute mode, maybe it is in mute mode.

Only door speakers have sound on the cd mode

the amp requires a 12 volt power constant, and a 12 volt "on" signal. you prolly have the 12 v "on" hooked up to the car stereo's antennae remote, meaning your amp gets power when the radio is on, cuase the radio is sending a signal to the amp (thinking that it is sending a signal to the antennae to raise)

you do have one of those collapsable antennas, right?

Well, if the headphones work,then the amp in the rcvr is working.
Make sure speakers are hooked up properly (Spr A, Spr B, etc.)
Be sure speakers are selected properly on the front panel.Look in the owners manual and see if its possible to reset the reciever.If this is an older unit, speaker relay may be dirty or defective or unit is in protection.If unit used to make a click after a few seconds when first turned on and now it doesn't, then the relay is not working.

I have a philips cd player model# FW-C70/37, that has power going to it but has no sound coming from any of the speakers, nor will the cd changer open.

cd players work without use of volume controls coax cables hook up's and then by setting reciever to proper button so sound can come out
you might have had a power surge that fried your system but lets look at easy stuff first
lines in properly and connected
test on an old sterio with speaker hook ups and test your speakers by plugging in to old beat box
make sure wires are not scorched
turn on receiver fm see if speakers work change channels to sterio and mono settings if speakers start to work on sterio or mono setting chances are power surge blew out your system
hope this worked

Well, you need to see if you can put in the green conector back in your PC, a pair of headphones and put a CD and see if you get sound, if so, then your sound card is fine, and is your speakers the culprit, if no, then is something with your sound card, of conections. check that please.
