Question about Philips HTS3440/37 System

Open Question

HTS3440 Home Theatre System

You said that you were going to have a friend look at the power supply to see what the problem is. Did you find out what is wrong? I know the HTS3450 has been identified to having certain capacitors that cause a similar problems and I wasn't sure if you had figured it out for the HTS 3440.

Here is a picture of the Power Supply PCB. The location of the 470uF 25v capacitors is marked by the red circles. To locate these the two circuit boards need to be separated. Pictured are the replacement 35v capacitors. Thank you to WheatService for discovering the solution. I hope this helps. I went to Radio Shack and got them to do the soldering for me. It cost a total of like $15. The sound works like normal now.

Phillips 3440 theater system. Was watching and the sound went off the subwoofer light went out and no sound at all.


It may have overheated. It also may be just poorly designed/assembled and something blew out. If you're comfortable with opening it, you could take a peek inside and see if there's any scorch marks/soot on any of the boards inside. You should also check the power supply as when they go, the whole thing will normally shut down.

Sound does not come out of home theatre system


Check for power to the Home Theatre system. If you have lights on the front of the system, check your connections to the external speakers. Next check the output settings in your TV's setting menu. More info from you regarding this problem would have been helpful. I'm guessing your thoroughness is probably going to turn out to be a contributing factor.

Disk stuck in my Blue Ray


Hi!
I had the same problem, and I solved it by shutting down the unit and then disconnected the power supply for some sec. When re-connecting the power supply and pushing the start button the DVD was ejected when pushed the eject button.

I bought philips 5.1 home theatre for PC it is not supporting


As I found somewhere on the internet; there are two 470uF/25V capacitors on the power supply board in the sub-woofer that are the cause of buzzing, crackling and then eventually no sound. Go to Radio Shack and buy two Catalog #: 272-1030 470uF/35V capacitors and change them out. They are in the middle of the Power Supply PCB and are close to the long flat aluminum heatsink. Make sure you match the polarity properly when replacing. Your unit will be as good as new and will proibably last forever now.

Volume problem with surround sound


I tore mine apart, and the problem seems to be with the power supply in the sub-woofer-instead of 36 Volts, it it producing 2.6V. I'm having a friend have a look at the supply.
