Question about Philips MMS 460 - PC multimedia home theatre speaker system - 80 Watt (Total) System

1 Answer

Hi. I have had a Philips MMS 460 5.1 surround sound system for about a year already. However, its been plugged and unplugged from my computer to my ipod in various times. However, there is no power now and i do not know why. I have even replaced the adapter with another one of the same output and input thinking it might be the adapter but it still does not work and i do not know why. Any help would be nice. thanks

There is most likely an internal problem then and it would need to be tested to see what has exactly happened to it
if you cannot work on this then taking it in to a repair shop or seeing what phillips can do for you would be a couple of options

I have connected my new surround sound to the dvd player as everything else runs through it. Also found that it has a seperate switch for 5.1 surround sound (all the speakers active) and ordinary stereo. I'm unfamiliar with yours, but check for this switch, mine was hidden on the back of the base speaker.

Hope this helps

My computer sound system

Most likely the sub has the crossover in it, most likely the 2 input cables from whatever device you want to play through the system will plug into the sub then the 2 speaker cables will come out of the sub and go to the speakers, just be sure to have everything connected into and out of the sub and make sure the power cords for the speakers and sub are plugged in, I am assuming this is a self powered system wich means the amplifiers are built into the speakers and sub.
