Question about Philips E-Box FTR9965 DTV Receiver

Philips FTR9966/17S receiver box broken - black screen, but sound

We recently hooked a new soundbar up to our 4 year old Philips FTR9966/17S Plasma TV. It worked fine for a day, and the next day we got a black screen, and the red light on the TV would blink. Yet, we could still hear sound through the soundbar, and it sounded like the TV was channel surfing. Weird. We called Philips and they referred us to a repair guy, who took the TV home with him. He brought it back a week later, and it worked for about 5 minutes, then the same problem. So he took it back with him again, and now he's saying that the receiver box is broken, and that Philips doesn't make them anymore. Therefore our 3K TV is shot. Is it true? could that be? Would the TV not work without the receiver box, isn't there a way to hook the TV up directly to the cable line? Anything you think we should try to fix this?
Thanks, Brad and Michaela

How do I hook up a Yamaha RX-V377 receiver to a Samsung HW-H450 soundbar?


Not sure why you would want to set things up this way, but you have to set the audio output in the receiver hdmi setup menu to tv. This will allow the receiver to pass audio info out of the hdmi jack. By default, this is turned off.

I have a Philips soundbar that I have hooked up to my flat screen tv using audio (red,white) cables directly from soundbar to tv and there is no sound coming out.


Be sure you are hooking up the Audio Output from the TV or satellite to the soundbar.

From the satellite box both Audio Output and Video Output go to the TV, and then Audio Output from the TV goes to the soundbar.
Or
From the satellite box Video Output goes to the TV and Audio Output goes to the soundbar.

You may have to go into the settings on the tv and turn off the internal speakers in order to get audio out of the jacks on back.

The cost of getting this plasma fixed is not costwise compared to getting a new TV. I recommend NOT to get another plasma but get either an LCD or LED for the best quality compared with price. Plasma parts can be quite expensive especially for a 10 year old model or may not be available.

Hi, we have a Philips Plasma TV with receiver box, serial # FTR9965/17S. Recently we hooked a sound bar up to it. It still worked fine for a day, but the next day, the screen was black, the little light on...


If you have the owner's guide at home, shoot me the model number from the set itself; it should be shown on the guide.
If I can determine the nature of the 'receiver box,' perhaps I can suggest a work-around. I have a feeling that is a converter of some kind and it may be of a type not brand dependent; i.e., replaceable with another brand.
I'd really like to help you and gain some insight into this problem too.
