Can i play my mp3 HDD through the Unit speakers

I have just found out that the USB port on the Philips DVD micro theater does not support HDD mp3 players. Is there a seperate cable that i could get in order to connect the mp3 and listen to it using the speakers on the unit?

If it has red/white RCA style inputs on the back you can just buy a cord that will plug into the headphone of your MP3 and into the RCA jacks on the stereo.

DVD player suddenly stopped working

Turn unit off and unplug, then plug back in and keep finger on eject button, and then hit the power button.  Nothing?  Get your phillips screwdriver and remove the shell.  Then retrieve you disc.  While your in there look for signs of a burned capacitor off the ic port chip and take a little glass cleaner and clean the optical lens with a micro fiber cloth.

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System

Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.

Mcd288 problem

Try not to use any rental dvd discs or dvd burner discs. Go get a brand new dvd movie(again,do not burn a DVD disc and play in this unit.) and put it in see if it works? Should have at least 2-3 movies for testing.
If you have tried to put in some BRAND NEW DVD movies and still doesn't work,you have a problem with the unit.
