Question about Philips wacs7500 streamium 80gb wireless music center & station black
I have had my Stremium WACS7500 for several years. Without any warning it has simply stopped working. It appeared that the main screen had frozen. I switched off power and then re started, however this simply resulted in a completely blank screen and none of the feature buttons were illuminated either. The standby button is illuminated green, however the system does not respond to the remote control either. Has anyone experienced this problem before? Your assitance would be much appreciated Many thanks Karl

I had exactly the same problem. The volume up button was constantly on, causing the on screen display to be permanently displayed. Here is the solution to fix it. This will also work for any other front panel buttons that are misbehaving.
Note: If you monitor is still under warrantee, don't try and fix it yourself - just send it back.
If you open your monitor you will find a small circuit board with a row of microswitches mounted on it. This is the circuit that's causing the problem.
To open your monitor you will need to remove the stand (one plastic cover that unclips by hand and 4 screws that can be removed with a philips screwdriver). This will then reveal two additional countersunk screws that need to be removed.
You can now remove the front cover. There are 4 clips at the base of the cover that can be removed by hand. You then need to pry the cover off, starting at the corner next to the power button. This is really quite stiff and you need to use a reasonable amount of force. Don't worry about the loud cracking sound as each clip along the side releases.
Once the cover is removed you will see the circuit board with the microswitches staring you in the face.
This board needs to be replaced but if you want to fix the problem immediately here is what I did.
Disclaimer - Proceed at your own risk from here on in.
Plug your monitor back into the power and reconnect to your PC. Make sure it's on and still showing the same problem.
The curcuit board unclips and there is a 7 pin connector that also can be unclipped. Remove the board and undo the connector. You don't need to switch off the power.
After the board has been removed for a few seconds, the on screen display that was permanently visible should disappear.
Now I temporarily disabled the malfunctioning button by bending the associated pin on the connector 90 degrees and then reattaching the connector.
How do you know which pin is associated with which button. Trial and error. Simply bend down a pin, and reattach the connector. If the problem persists, unplug and try the next pin.
When you've found the correct pin, straighten the others and reattach the connector.
Clip the curcuit board back in, making sure the connecting cable is clear and doesn't get pinched.
Reassemble your monitor and you're good to go.
The next step is to order a new circuit board from Philips. These should be really cheap (I hope) and you now know how to fit it yourself.
I'm going to try ordering one tomorrow.

my dvd player did the same problem. and i solved this just with a screw driver:) if your dvd player s guaranty finished!! switch off the player and open the screws which r 2 on sides and 3 behind the dvd. open the cover and take off the two group of cables on the chipset which are on the mechanical part side! (mechanical side: dvd driver) than plug the cables again to their socket. its done! close all and go on ! i hope this will solve your problem as mine...

SOURCE: not repond The remote control
Hi, Unfortunatly, Philips had a design flaw from the manufacturer. You will need to have it serviced by a technician,but the replacement part is called an I.R. Board. It should only cost about 2 or 3 dollars,but the labor is the main cost of the repair,which you have a warranty for.

Test your remote with a digital camera display, if no flashing LED then try to repair the remote with my Instructable: http://www.google.co.nz/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.instructables.com%2Fid%2FRepair-your-remote-controls%2F&ei=mpVVSrr6O4_-sgP0-oDPDg&usg=AFQjCNGyomjVuVMr6mFT1L36ffi06FhCDg&sig2=kheNi9TulBWzmhGOMiIX7g
