Question about Philips AZ1007 Cassette/CD Boombox
When I move the on/off switch their is a clicking noise like the unit is engaging, but no sound from the radio. The CD spins the stops. I can move the switch a little to generate some power, but it usually quits. Tried moving the electrical cord from the back of the player in and out, same reaction as the switch. Even tried plugging into a different outlet, same response.

SOURCE: wont spin
cdfreeze, DVD drives spin up the platter and attempt to read from it. If the read fails, they stop spinning the drive. So, I think the problem you have is that the device won't read. DVD drives have some very small plastic pieces that can break and cause failure. They also have a read head that can get out of alignment. If you're ambitious, look at the drive and see if you can find any other damage. Don't run the drive open, though, because there is invisible laser that can blind you (there should have been a warning on the top of the drive when you opened it). I checked eBay and this DVD player sells for under $20 (including shipping), so don't spend too much time on it. Definitely let me know if you have questions or comments.

SOURCE: dvdr3455/37 stopped working
I had the same problem - and here is how I fixed it.
When it was booting/re-booting I ejected the disk (I needed it out anyway since I assumed the unit was dead.) After ejecting the disk it display "load" on the unit. I read in another message board that this means the unit is looking for the firmware disk. I went to http://www.usasupport.philips.com/productDocuments.html?ProductCode=DVDR3455H/37&subCat=DVD_HARDDISK_RECORDERS_SU_US_CONSUMER
I followed the instructions to make the "upgrade CD" and inserted into my DVR. My unit then powered up normally. I went ahead and upgraded the software and it did happen again (the re-boot cycle) until I entered the date/time.

SOURCE: won't connect to pc
YOU DON'T NEED A USB CABLE!!! Buy a cable that has a red, white tip on it and a headphone tip on the other end then plug the red, white cable infront of the boombox. Then plug the headphone tip into the back of the pc where you would plug in regular computer speakers into it.
I don't know the exact name for the wire but some portable dvd players contain them.
I never used a usb cable too much trouble.

I have been quite involved with a sound problem in my HTS3450 (search for the topic "sound in only 3 channels"), and I learned that when you are in the setup menu the speaker volume will be greyed out if there is a disc in the tray...remove the disc, wait for the "disc loading" dialogue to switch to "no disc", the try accessing the setup menu again. Other than that I have no advise if you once had proper function after moving the system. Check out my experiences with the cable connecting the sub to the DVD/receiver in my postings. Good luck.

Its a real good chance that the HOT (horizontal output tranistor) transistor is shorted if so the flyback trasformer may be bad also. the transformer will make a tick tick sound if it is trying to start.
