Question about Philips HTS3410D/37 700W DVD Home Theater System System

3 Answers

My Philips HTS3410D will not power on. The red "standby" light comes on, and I've opened the box to look if a fuse is blown, but everything appears ok. If I hit Power, Eject, Source, Play... the unit acts like is will power up, but after about 4 seconds, the red "standby" light just comes on again. So it's not working. What do I do?

Mine was exhibiting similar problems. It was the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board.

There are 4 or 5 of them, and between 2001-2005 there was a bad batch of capacitors that came out of the far east, some of these capacitors were inferior quality so they dry out and fail. You can read about them on badcaps.net You can usually tell a failed electrolytic because the top cap puffs out slightly. Mine were actually almost pointy on top.

If you have the dexterity, soldering pencil and time, you can fix it yourself for about $5.00. Be warned that as soon as you open the case, you void the warranty, so if you don't feel comfortable, take it to a professional. Also, My remote is dying, so if someone wants to sell me their remote, let me know.

Just had this exact problem and solved by replacing two bad capacitors on the power supply - a $3.50 purchase from Radio Shack instead of replacing the entire (long out of warranty) unit that I use as a terrific sound system for my PC. I actually had the same problem with my Samsung TV - bad capacitors on the power supply. Check out the detailed YouTube videos on the Samsung TV capacitor repair for detailed instructions on how to spot the capacitors, de-solder, replace with new capacitors, and then re-solder the board. I had never soldered before, but it's not that hard, and so far this little trick has saved me at least $700 for a TV and (now) audio system repair/replacement.

System will not power on!


The fuse has blown out and some CAPACITORS ON THE POWER BOARD. You will need to replace the fuse first and then look for blown out capacitors on the powerboard using a multimeter... Just in case you locate the faulty capacitors just note down the values on them and google for them. Shouldn't be hard, anyways if can't find them i will be right here to help!
Regards!

Unit does not stay on for more than 5 to 8 seconds. I opened the case and inspected the boards. All capacitors appear normal, there are no visibly burned components, No visible signs of heat. Unit worked...


from your suggestion, i think the problem is come from power supply unit, maybe the transformator was burned or damaged that make no power to the board
the other suggeastion is the power supply componen was damaged
try to check it

a blinking or pulsing power light usualy means a problem with the power supply. Check for burned resistors or swallen capacitors on the power board it will be the one with the one with the main power running to it.

Philips HTS3410D home theatre system. DVD is stuck inside - won't play, won't open. any ideas?


Power off the system
Unplug the power cord
Wait 5 minutes
Plug back the power cord
Power up the system
Press the open/close button
Load a DVD and play

If the tray still will not open, the cover will have to be removed and manually operated. You may have to have a technician look at the unit.

Subwoofer light


The subwoofer light stays red regardless of the state it is in despite it being labled a standby light. (It's more of a power on light) It seems that philips missed the point of what a standby light is.

I would have expected the light to have changed colour to indicate that the unit was operational and perhaps syncing with the receiver box.

I solved this problem on my HTS3410D.

Inside there are two circuit boards, the power supply board and the audio/video board.
  • First, unplug your unit and let it sit for a few hours.
  • Now open the unit up, and unplug all of the connectors going to or from the power supply board. You can easily tell which board is the power supply board because it's the one the power cord plugs into.
  • Unscrew the four mounting screws that hold the board to the case.
  • Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, squeeze the two white plastic clips that hold the board to the case (one at a time), while gently lifting the board away from the case.
  • Now that you have the board out, feel the tops of all the capacitors (they look like this). Healthy capacitors should have a totally flat top. (There is probably one that is covered in some sort of heat shrink, so you can't feel the top.)
  • One capacitor most likely has a slightly bulging top. That is the culprit.
  • Using a soldering iron, carefully remove the busted capacitor, making sure to note which side the stripe is on.
  • Buy a replacement capacitor at Radio Shack or www.digikey.com that has the same capacitance (e.g. - 1000uF) an equal or greater voltage, and an equal or greater maximum temperature.
  • Insert and re-solder the replacement capacitor in the same orientation as the one you took out, then trim the excess leads.
  • Reassemble your system, and you're done.
The capacitor that died on mine was 1,000uF, 16V, 105°C. It was located fairly close to where the power cord comes in to the board. I replaced it with a 1,000uF 50V capacitor, and the system powered right up like a champ. The entire process took me about an hour.

I hope this helps some other people have similar results.

Power short/ bad fuse?


I had the very same problem. The dreaded blinking power light. I also dabble in electronics. I found that all that was wrong with mine was one bad cap. There are two 1000uF(microfarrid) 16V(volt) capacitors in the mid section of the power board, right next to each other. One was bulging on the top. They have an "X" on top. I replaced it with a 1000uF 35V capacitor from Radioshack. They did not have a 16 volt. (Never go down to a lower voltage) The capacitor I got was larger than the old one but I gently moved over the parts around it and got in there. After replacing this one capacitor, which I got for $1.72 tax and all, I plugged it up and no more problems! It works great! I hope this helps someone else.
