Re: only 2 of my 5 speakers are working

Press the SURR button until you get sound on all five speakers. If you don't get sound on all 5, there are a few possibilities:
1) the program you are watching only gets stereo sound or lower (only two or one speaker will play in this case)
2) you need to get a digital audio cable instead of using the red/white AV cable
3) a setting on the TV, cable, or satellite box needs to be changed to allow surround sound in full

Philips home theater suddenly doesn't produce sounds

Sounds like the main amplifier section circuit inside the system is damaged. Contact any service technician, or the authorized service center for Philips.

My Philips HTS3566D home theater stereo system speakers do not work. Sound comes from the tv, but not from the speakers that came with the Philips unit. I've tried different modes (party, dolby, etc.)...

I have the same problem. The front right and left chanels are fucked up while the center and rear right and left are working normally. I can't imagine what's the problem.

I have no sound :(

If the (internal) radio doesn't produce sound it's not signal cables. What cables were you exchanging?

This sounds like a basic NO SOUND problem.

How does it fare when you run speaker setup?

How about the MUTE button?????

I have the philips hts3440/37 none of the speakers work.

Doubtful that it is as serious as a fuse, unless it was working before and now it's not.

Are you getting no sound when watching DVD's? Try adjusting the volume on the home theater system - press the SURR button until it says "Dolby" or something like that.

Make sure it is connected like this:

Just bought a Philips home theatre system HTS3544 low sound?

You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.

I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.

Speaker Problem

Try swapping the speakers to the opposite channels (left and right) and see if the problem is on the same side. If it is, then you may have a bad channel in your amplifier/receiver.

Home theatre but TV without audio outlet

I would suggest that you smash
Philips HTS w/a hammer!
I had better sound from TV alone! Only 2 speakers put out sound from TV. Recordings from DVR can not be heard very well w/all volumes at max. System sucks! You get what you pay for! $2500 LCD TV sounds worse w/Philips HTS than my son's $300 TV! ALL cables hooked up as instucted!!!!

Philips HTS3357/05 home cinema system

Same problem here with HTS3357/12... This system is also REALLY **** from an electronics point of view (I have checked inside and I know what I am talking about), that's the reason why the sound is so horrible on the front and rear speaker.It is as simple as a SCAM.
No more Philips for me.
