Recently the sound has been cutting out and the dvd player returns to standby.Sometimes i can turn it sraight back on other times ill just hear a crack and it will stay in standby.Seems to be completely random but never lasts more than a couple of hours without cutting out.Ive narrowed the problem down to the amplifier but that seems to be ok no dry joints,ive even replaced a couple of capacitors on it but still no joy.Im just about ready to give up
Any help greatly appreciated

Re: Sound Cutting Out
If you looked for dry connections and found none, there is probably a componet that is intermittant, and these can be tough puppies to troubleshoot, without monitoring the power supply voltages and sittinfg with the unit.

HI, Yes you are right man, this problem occurs only with the cable problem, i can explain you, if there is a receiver problem means you won't get the sound its dam sure, only if there is a cable problem you will get some noise or sound cut off with the speakers, so you please check the cables properly it will be alright.
solution to Both our problems is this, call Philips, "it just so happens that we have a rapid replacement program for this particular system"-"there seems to be an internal electrical problem", so I'm sending it back to them.......
Sometimes the standby factory setup (electronically) should be unplugged. In most types of dvd players and other players it's the main problem. It should be taken to a repair tech and fixit, anyway this could not be absolute could be especifically in the power management circuitry. Some times power peaks and other anomalies could kill the standby feature nad reset on and on your dvd.
Have you tryed the cleaning of the lens first?? I would for sure do that. If that dosent work i would connect the unit to another amp and see if it still cuts out too. If it does it could have a problem with the tracking or focus gain/offwet alighnment. These are not consumer alighnments, as you need a scope and the know how to hook up the player to the scope and monitor the rf waveform along with test disc. Other then cleaning the unit theres not alot we as consumers can do. Good luck
