Question about Philips HTS3400/37B System

1 Answer

Remote and player keys are not working/ volume is working

I watched a movie yesterday and today when my wife went to put a DVD in the DVD control keys won't work (play, skip, stop) even on the remote. The volume control works and it begins to play the DVD. Once I get to the main menu, I can't go any further because of the controls no working. Any idea on this...I couldn't seem to find this problem anywhere else.

    Well....my wife said she gave the DVD player another try today and she said it was doing the same thing as before. The only thing she did differently, that I didn't do yesterday was that she unplugged the DVD player and then plugged it back in and then she stated she got the buttons to work on the DVD player....CRAZY....I don't know what the deal was but that corrected the problem.

Hello, depending on how new your dvd player is ,and what brand it might be ,their are many variables to this answer , first of all if your volume works and the rest of the buttons do,nt ,I have to wonder if we are talking about a dvd player remote , because to tell you the truth i have never seen a volume control on a dvd remote! Is this a universal remote that controls your dvd and other components? if so you might have lost the code that you first programmed into it , if it,s not that ,Then lets look at the player that did work a day earlier and now it does,nt ,If niether of the two work then i would have to say it woul be a sensor issue in the board and most likely the recieving part of the board that recieves the signals from the remote and that same part of the board also controls you dvd function controls on it,s front.Another question is on electronics ,Do you have a surge protector on the components ? ,and if not Was their a storm recently in your area that could have possibly caused a power failure at your house that you might not have been around to wittness! When power surges happen near a home ( a close lightning strike) you could be out of the house and not realize it and when you return your power is restored but your digital clocks and microwave never lie when it comes to power surges because those are some of the first items you have to reset ,theese are asure sign that their was a power failure , if that was to occur without a surge protector to the dvd player , it,s quite possible it fried the board , Also make shure your remote batterys are fresh ,if it,s still not that you can try one more thing ,if you buy a universal remote for about 10 bucks , the control comes with a code book that can be programmed to your dvd player and see if that will work , if any of theese idea,s don,t seem to work consult your owners warranty manual for a possible replacement ,most home theater systems today are all in one units that have all the electronics in one unit including dvd , if this is what you have then definetly consult your manual and call customer service of your brand ,they will work with you and possibly honor the warranty and send you a new one ! I hope i was able to give you some idea,s and insight into helping you troubleshoot your problem ,! it,s been a pleasure trying to help,Sincerely Glenn mayer

    Hello again, I am so glad you got your player to work,Your wife is one smart cookie , some electronics clear their present jam codes by reseting them ,and if that means taking out the plug to get it to reset then so be it,I know on garage door openers and on computers and stereo systems that overheat or get bogged down with too much info they can freeze and not allow and new information to be processes ,some have too cool off while others just need to be unplugged for a short while,that also goes for satellite and cable recievers ! Well I really did appreciate your question and you know what ? I really learned something also because that was the one thing i did not suggest and was thinking of all the other things it could have been , well i am happy all is well with your dvd player and Thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to try and help you, Sincerely Glenn Mayer

New Transformers movie won't play


I have the same exact problem with that dvd player. So far i am not aware of any solutions yet. I called phillips and they said they will try to create new firmware uprgade for the dvd player to fix the problem and they told me to keep an eye out for it on the website. I installed the most recent firmware too but that didnt help at all. The only other solution i see is maybe downloading the entire movie from pirate website and burn the dvd files onto a high quality disc at slow speed with a good dvd writing program.

The system is playing DVD but no sound produced,still when i try to change function i.e from Dvd to either AUX, BAND,or USB its not changing but all other remote control keys are functioning.


As for the sound, there are some players that has different volume controls for each speaker, so check the volume of the speaker through your remote.

Or maybe the sound I.C of the player is bad.

You might just loose the Player with a screw driver and you may probably see what's wrong with it and if you don't, couple it back and put it on, don't be surprised to see your player working properly.

My Samsung player hung such that no button functions. What I did was just to loose it and clean the inside and by the time I coupled it back, it started working perfectly up till now.

Note that this could only work if the player is not having any major fault.

I wish you the best.

The Directv codes for my Samsung HT-TZ512 surround sound/dvd player don't work. How can I program my Directv remote to control the dvd player? The codes I've tried are 20490, 20573, 20820, 21075 and 20899....


sometimes directv remotes do not work with surround dvd players. Try doing an automatic code search . Most of the time it will only allow you to power the dvd player and operate the volume.

Need Dish Network Code for Sony DAVHDX275 Audio System


Refer to page 82 in your Dish Network User's Guide......(Make sure Sony system is powered on and in DVD mode with a disc in the player).  Point Dish remote at Sony box -  Hold Aux until all buttons light up at top....press 2 - then STAR button* and then POWER button - then press the up arrow key repeatedly until Sony turns off - press # key to lock in code.
It took me awhile to get it to work....it will only work power, mute, and volume - not dvd play functions. Refer to page 85 to make the Dish remote control the Sony box volume by default.
Good luck.

Sounds like you have a loose cable. Check that the connection is really in well. If the problem continues I would get a new set of cables, especially if you are using the ones that came with the receiver or dvd player.
