Question about Philips Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have a Philips FW- M777 Hi-Fi unit, which i was using the other day at a relatively low volume, no more than 25/40 when all of a sudden there was a burning smell which may or may not have been the hi-fi, one of the speakers or a light which was near to them which was broken. the actual centre unit works perfectly, so does one speaker, but the other is really really quiet compared to how it should be, i understand that it is fluid cooled i think. the main woofer has trouble moving, if i try to move it there is a grinding sound, the smaller speaker works fine and i think the WOOX speaker is good too but still very quiet compared to the other speaker, please help. does anybody know the customer help email adress for philips or anything like that because i cant find one. thanks.

How many watts onkyo p3300 amp & pre-amp home stereo audio


Sorry I don't know the answer to your question because I don't know the specification of your amplifier but like a car engine that might have a capability of, say, 200 horsepower, in use and for practical purposes that figure is completely immaterial because most of those horses would never be used by a responsible driver. It requires only about 20 horsepower for an average car to maintain 50mph so it hardly matters what the potential power output is as long as it is capable of doing the work assigned to it.

The average person listening to a hi-fi in an average room requires an average power output of around half a watt. It is immaterial if the amplifier is capable of 50, 150 or 500 watts because for comfortable distortion-free listening most of that potential power will never be used.
With hi-fi the problems start with the speaker systems. It is a mistake to use a high power speaker in a domestic environment regardless of the potential amplifier power output. The amp will only produce the power it is capable of if it is driven hard (the volume turned up) and because doing that is anti-social, wasteful and harmful to health and comfort that should not happen but high power speakers tend not to reproduce sound efficiently at low power and so more power must be provided than would otherwise be needed with good low power speakers.
Fashions have changed and it is now difficult to find good hi-fi speakers for the domestic environment that reproduce sound efficiently at low power levels and speakers with a 10 watt rating, the ideal type for small to moderately-sized accommodation, are almost impossible to find these days but it is still possible to find good drive units rated at between 20 and 50 watts that perform fairly efficiently at social volume levels.

Pioneer elite sx-a6 keeps going to standby


I had a receiver that would shut off when I had the volume too loud. It was caused because the speakers were using too much juice. Does it work with less speakers or at low low volumes? Then this may be the case.

I solved it by getting a different receiver.

if it has nothing to do with volume then check your manual and settings for a auto standby feature that may be just putting the receiver to standby after a set time.

Hi there, our amp is giving us very low sound output even when volume is turned up to maximum volume. We have been unable to find the remote and are wondering if the remote was turned right down would that...


I'd look at the front panel for the Mute Button and the Mute Indicator, but turn the volume down for any further investigations. If you can't hera the sound at 1/2 volume, it ain't there. No sense risking a sudden volume surge that will kill your speakers when you finally find the problem.

Also check the T-Mon Indicator. If it;s on you have the Tape selcted for listening instead of a source.

Volume/Mute Indicator: This

indicator will glow green when the

HK3270 is turned on. Its position

will enable you to judge the relative

volume of the unit even when the

speakers are muted or turned off.

When the indicator is pointing

towards the left, at an "8 o'clock"

position, the volume is low; when

it is pointing to the right, as in a

"3 o'clock" position, the volume is

loud. When the unit has been muted,

pressing the Mute button ïâthe
indicator will flash

Which jack ports on rear of dra f107 do i use to connect to tv,thanks


If you mean >>> DENON <<< DRA F107 and you want to connect TV-related audio to it...

Either run an RCA pair from the back of your (unknown make/model) TV audio out to the receiver's CD, Aux1 or Aux2 input. Then configure your unknown TV sound output to be FIXED if that is an option, so TV volume can be turned down at the TV but the receiver can still use the audio.

Better yet would be to draw TV-related audio from whatever the TV is watching: DVD, Cable Box, satellite box and eliminate the TV as the Low-Fi middleman.

My AVR 2803 shuts down when volume is at medium or above.


too big a speaker load,unit sensors shut unit down when speaker impedance gets too low . and draws too much current at hi volume.A bad woofer or tweeter voice coil burned by sudden excess volume can cause this,also partially shorted speaker wires.

Hi there .......my sa gx303P stereo amplifier/tuner technics ...the cooling fan for the power amplifier works only on a somewhat strong signal .....if you play soft music at low volume the cooling fan...


These units are designed to only run the fan when necessary. If the unit is overheating, there is a problem in the detection circuit. This is a relatively inexpensive repair. If you are getting overheating when running at a low volume, it suggests that the speakers are not matched to the amp. In other words, the amp is expecting an 8 ohm load and is being presented a lower ohm load. This makes the amp work harder and generates more heat. Check the speaker wires and make sure that they are not frayed or crossing in any manner. Also, verify that the rating of the speakers is correct.

Update this with what you find.

Thanks,
Dan
