I have a Philiips hts 3450 surround sound system. i have had it for about a year or so. the power in my house suddenly surged one time n my reciever was plugged in, but was not powered on. it took the hit. the red light on ther reciever stayed lit, but wouldnt power off. so when i unplugged it, it was shot. i recently plugged it up and it made a light "clicking" noise until i unplugged it. is it still some life in this? because, the way this reciever is set up. i dont think i can use any other reciever. if i can, what can i use. but i'd rather revive the one i got because the speakers would be shot!

Re: No Power From My Reciever
Mook_trakzz, your device is most likely roasted and ready or scrap. Sorry.
Guest, check if the cables are connected properly, specially the cable between the device and the sub is quite easily shifted thus losing your sound.
timtlc, seems you have had some powerfailure during that night, you can try to remove the powercable for at least 15 seconds, that should reset the device.
to all, information from Philips on this device:
Press the STANDBY ON button on the front of the DVD system to turn on the power.
If the device powers on at the unit and not the remote, the unit may
have been turned off with TV selected as the source on the remote. The
standby button on the remote will operate most Philips TV’s when TV is
selected as the source. Change the source to disc or any other source
than TV on the remote.
To completely reset the player, unplug the AC cord from the AC outlet for 15 seconds.

Wide open one here. Is your tv coming in direct from the wall or do you have a cable/digital box that you need to get the signal from? If you have a box then make sure you are plugged into the audio out on the box and on the HTS you are on the audio in. There will be a left and right. If you have the sound to your tv then you can plug into the audio out on your tv and again plug into your audio in on your box. If your tv has an option for external speakers then you need to make that adjustment on the audio menu on your tv. Also make sure that the proper channel is selected on your HTS and that your audio output matches your selection. Hope this helps but I will keep an eye out for further posts.
Not much detail to work with here. Your cable box (?) should have a digital audio output. Use it if your HTS has an input for it. Otherwise, analog audio from the box or TV won't produce true surround, but most HTS can simulate it.
DON'T NEED A SEPERATE AMP THE SYSTEM HAS ONE IT IS PART OF THE CABINET THE DVD PLAYER IS IN, YOU CAN HOOK IT TO THE TV WITH A HDMI CABLE OR STANDARD VIDEO CABLE OR A PROGRESSIVE SCAN CABLE SETUP, FOR AUDIO U CAN USE STANDARD RCA CABLES, OR DIGITAL AUDIO, CHECK TO TO SEE WHAT OUTPUTS AND INPUTS THE TV G THE TV HAS ALSO CONSULT YOUR USER MANUAL FOR THE SURROUND SOUND.

You may have tried this, but when you hook up audio out from TV to audio in on reciever, did you try the different input options for the reciever. Often times, audio in is an aux1 or aux2 setting on the receiver. If it is working with the DVD player, it is functional, you just have to get the wires hooked up and get the reciever on the correct setting. Also, even if you have TV audio out correctly configured to audio in AND on the correct input setting, the TV volume will have to be UP as well as the receiver volume. NOT ALL THE WAY UP (you'll blow your speakers), but up about 25% for you to hear it.
I have a similar problem. I inspected the power board and found IC901 burned completely. I cannot find out the part number and have tried to get a reply from phillips but have not heard back from them. Anyone have a schematic or can give me the part # of IC901?
As I found somewhere on the internet; there are two 470uF/25V
capacitors on the power supply board in the sub-woofer that are the
cause of buzzing, crackling and then eventually no sound. Go to Radio
Shack and buy two Catalog #: 272-1030 470uF/35V capacitors and change
them out. They are in the middle of the Power Supply PCB and are close
to the long flat aluminum heatsink. Make sure you match the polarity
properly when replacing. Your unit will be as good as new and will
proibably last forever now.
Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
