Question about Philips FWC399 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Sound Level Changes Constantly

If I have my Philips FWC399 system on anything (radio, aux or CD) the volume will increase or decrease at will. I can start it off at level 8 and eventually it will decrease to what sounds like level 3 or 4. If I cutoff system completely it may go back to volume level 8 or stay at that low level. It will never increase at a volume level higher than what I put. I have tried making sure the speaker wires are in good, but that doesn't help.

    It didn't help, maybe it is something wrong inside. Probably better off buying a new radio. Thanks anyway.

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

Sound distortion on medium volume with radio, cd, aux, ect.


The problem is in the audio driver or output stage which is normally an ic semiconductor, it is recommended that a technician look at the stereo to assess cost.

My ibm product key is....QC6Y-F93J9-H6YWB-J4R47-6DO8G...THE PROBLEM IS THAT THEIR IS NO SOUND COMING FROM MY CPU..ITS A BUILT IN SOUND SYSTEM AND ONLY SOUND IT MAKES IS BEEP FOR WARNINGS.IN CONTROL PANEL...


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
 
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those

I have philips fwc399 the problem is that when i plug it will automatically power on but all bottons doesnt works


That status shows that the unit is forced to on trough power supply switching, There must be a standby power first and must be triggered by microprocessor of the system to turn on, there is a problem in the power standby and on switch, usually they are using transistor to switch secondary voltages, or the microprocessor (chip) of the system is in trouble.

My subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is constantly generating lots of bass noise even on mute.


I assume you are using XP. Try these steps.
1. Open 'Sound and Audio devices' in Control Panel.
2. Select 'Advanced...' button near bottom. b2053f1.jpg

3. Select 5.1 system 972ed04.jpg

4. Start playing a sound.
5. Set the volume control of the subwoofer to the middle position.
6. Open volume control and adjust Master volume to a comfortable level (i.e. until there is no hum).

Also make sure you haven't muted any sound device except microphone. I think your problem is you have set it to the maximum level. So decrease it.
7. Mute the sound and check.
Good luck! Let us know the result.

Frustrated sound won't lower


There are several complaints in FIXYA and they are all about this same fault condition....the volume is too high when turned on...

Because of the high number of complaints about this same fault I would suggest that its a manufacturer fault.

So the manufacturer should be contacted about it to ask for your money back..

Cheers From YUBEUT..
