Hello,

First, check you menu settings for (High Definition Media Interface) HDMI on your TV and on your home theater system, if they are correct then, I have bad news the HDMI port on your TV or on your home theater system has been blown. This is a common and on-going problem with HDMI. The control circuitry is suceptable to stray voltages, which cause the HDMI IC and circuit to malfunction.

I would suggest if it is the HDMI port, having a qualified TV technician troubleshoot the problem and give you an estimate on the cost of repair.

However if you want to try to do this yourself, here is what you will need:

1) schematic of the TV
2) multimeter
3) Oscilloscope (optional)
4) HDMI signal generator (This can be improvised if you have a background in electroniocs)

First unplug the TV and remove the back cover. Then using the schematic find the voltage rail that suppllies voltage to the HDMI port. Plug the tv back in and turn it on. Using the multimeter set to DC volts measure the voltage on the HDMI port control IC and compare it to the schematic values, if they are different within 10% then you have a problem with the IC and it needs to be changed out. If there is no DC voltage difference the look deeper into the circuitry, and follow the path to the main processor, checking the voltages and comparing them to the schematic values. If this proves to be unsuccessful, use the oscilloscope to look at the wave forms (These will be digital pulses) and compare them to the schematic values (they should be as close as possible to the schematic values).
Once you determine that the problem is in the HDMI IC you will need to remove the IC by desoldering it. After the IC is removed clean the area and then replace it with a new HDMI IC.

If you need asistance with the process let me know and I'll try to walk you through it. The best bet however is to call a TV technician.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

How does the philips hts8100 operate tv sound do i need special cable


If your TV does not have a fiber optic output jack on it the sound bar will never connect to the TV. If it does then you'll need a fiber cable and then go to the audio setup on the TV and select optical out so the TV sound will be directed to the sound bar.

I have philips hts8100 from usa , can I plug it in 220 volts or 110 volts


The Philips HTS8100 is designed to use 120 Volts AC. You could use a 220 Volt AC to 120 Volt AC Step Down transformer to power this using a 220 Volt outlet. Here is what you will need:

Same problem with my HTS8100. Little-to-no sound. Sometimes sound comes on very intermittently. I downloaded the software patch from the Philips website and installed it. This fixed the sound problem for about a week, then the problem came back. I'm not sure what else to do.

Has anyone had problems with connecting an 'HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input,HDMI+ Audio output)' to a Panasonic PT-53TW53? I have a TiVo Premiere hooked up to my Panasonic PT-53TW53. I use the HDMI out, and RCA R+L outputs on the TiVo, and hook up to the digital in connections on the TV. The conversion of the HDMI out is via an HDMI to DVI cable. This has worked perfectly for years, but recently I wanted to disconnect the TiVo and replace with my Roku or Amazon Fire TV. Both have a single HDMI output. So I purchased an AGPtek HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input, HDMI+ Audio output) box, hooking up the HDMI output from the Roku or Fire TV to the input on the extractor/converter, and simply disconnecting the HDMI to DVI and RCA R+L outputs from the TiVo, and plugging them into the outputs on the converter/extractor. The converter/extractor has a 3 position switch: PASS, 2CH audio, or 5.1CH (via and SPDIF or Toslink cable). I have had 2 of these converter/extractors, and with both the Roku and Fire TV I got the same results with both converter/extractors: With the switch on 2CH, which is where I understand I should get HDMI video and 2CH RCA audio, all I get is the RCA audio. No video. If I switch to PASS I get video with no audio. Of course on the 5.1 setting I get nothing, since the TV does not support SPDIF. Yet I see reviews all over Amazon indicating folks are using this converter/extractor for this very purpose, and it is working fine. I can't possibly imagine that it is some sort of incompatibility issue with the TV, since the TiVo has worked (and continues to) fine for years. Any ideas?
