Question about Philips LX3000D System

1 Answer

Picture format I've had the Philips LX3000D for a couple of years now and never had any problems but recently when i play a dvd the picture keeps switching from widescreens format(with the 2 thick black lines at the top and bottom) to a picture with a black frame around it- i think this is called letterbox format (sorry i'm not at all technical). The result is that i cannot watch anything in peace because the picture keep switching format with a blinking effect! It will probably be something very simple to sort it but i just dont have a clue!

Re: Picture format

The problem is with the cable or satellite box, not with the HTS

Remote has stopped working for Philips LX3000 D

The remote control might be damaged. If it is possible to arrange a new remote for testing, do it. volume control of LX3000D works from the front PCB. check the front PCB is perfectly ok or not. Regarding the DVD player, what it says when you try to load a disk?

My DVD player no longer plays original dvd's - only copied dvd's

some times when you create DVD movies by high speed DVD writers, your data cannot be read by dvd player with high performance. it s due to speed mismatching. always write DVDs with Normal speed in order to use with DVD players. while in case oof PC-DVD -Rom it does not happens. it can read any high speed wriiten DVDs. DVD-Rom in PC are more precise than DVD players. Some times Weak DVD player Lens system can also mis read.

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.
