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.

I think my receiver may have a blown fuse, when plugged in and I try to turn it on the red power light comes on and immediately shuts off, could this be a fuse problem?? If so how can i fix this


If your main power fuse was blown, there would be no power at all. You may be looking at a blown preamp or an overheated component inside your receiver. You may want to take it in to a service technician. Have you tried to contact Philips customer service?

Samsung LN40C610N1F. When plugged in, the red standby light comes on, but when I hit the power button the unit will not power on. The light doesn't blink or anything.


I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.4_19_2012_3_53_26_pm.jpg

if set opened look for puffed up caps like these on the power board.

After a gig last night we tried our Marshall JCM 2000 DSL401and it had developed two noises without anything plugged in. The first is a transformer hum that I'd never noticed before and when standby is...


Likely the filter capacitors have a problem. Best to take this in for repair... it is ODD that there is noise with the standby switch is in standby... That makes no sense... In standby it appears that power is removed from the power amp high voltage so nothing should come through the speaker... Unles maybe one off the power tubes had a total meltdown which should have blown the fuse.

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.
