Question about Philips Cineos HTS9800W System

1 Answer

I have a Philips Cineos HTS9800W system and the subwoofer is no longer receiving power, i.e. the standby light doesn't light up when connected to the mains. I have checked the mains and the fuse - both are ok. The subwoofer was working perfectly only a few days ago and it hasn't been damaged. Are these units well-renowned for being temperamental and is there a quick fix solution? Thanks.

HTS9800 Wireless receiver not working


I have just bought one of these today and have had the exact same problem. No rear sound and no blue light on the receiver box.

Solution:
What philips don't tell you in the manual and on the support site is that the receiver box has a switch hidden under a white sticker; next to the left of the right speaker connection. The switch has 3 positions which can be selected. I had tried each switch position and power cycled the subwoofer each time until eventually i got a blue light on the receiver box.

You may also need to select the correct channel on the control box by pressing the "sound" button for 5 seconds on the remote control.



It took me quite a while to try the different combinations until it finally worked. I can't imagine that Philips would have sent the system out without testing the wireless partnership first, so I am guessing my wireless network could have had something to do with it. (forever the optimist).

I did expect the subwoofer standby light to have gone off or changed colour once operational, but this just seems to stay on no matter what state it is in.

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.

No reception or sound on rear speakers.


Here's the fix: power off the sub-woofer and wait for 60 secs before powering it on again. My rear receiver works every time now.  I guess the sub-woofer isn't just a dumb speaker; it has some kind of smarts in it too.
Prior to this, I had only tried cycling power to the DVD player itself.  I also re-seated the two, fat cables connected to the junction box. One of them had worked itself slightly loose and the result was completely absent speaker channels.

Its not designed to play HD DVDs, the model has HDMI connection in order to connect to latest output devices, viz flats panels and LCD tvs there by having a common audio and video cable. your model has a feature to upscale the normal DVD singal to match the quality output of hull HD TVs, hence the HDMI out put, do not confuse this with HD compatiability.

Go to the link below to check the full specs of your system.

though yours is a high end set, but its not HD disc compatiable.
