Question about Philips LX3900SA System

Open Question

Loud noises My Philips LX3900SA has recently become very noisey and occasional crunching sounds when playing DVDs. I'm not very clued up with this sort of thing, but I'd say there's maybe something wrong with whatever makes the DVD spin, it sounds more like a blender than a DVD player at the moment! I would appreciate some helpful advice on how to fix this fault.

You can try reseting the unit.
Reset the set to the default factory settings:
All the information stored
(programmes, time and date) will be lost.
Disconnect the set from power supply.
2. Press and hold down "STANDBY•ON" on the set and reconnect the set.
3. As soon as "IS TV ON?" is displayed, release "STANDBY•ON."

Hopefully reseting it will clear whatever problem it is having and allow you to once again use your DVD player.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Since U are using a universal remote control, these are bound to happen. Please try another code using the same universal remote control or get the original one. Use the auto-search function for your device on your universal remote control. I think you first: 1. Hold the set key, then the power button 9a red light should be observed at this time on the remote control), 2. Release the buttons, and the light will start to blink at intervals (Make sure at this time, the remote is pointed to the device sensor,and monitor this closely). 3. Once it is able to put your device off, quickly press the set button. Then 'on' you go. Enjoy.

Clicking noise on Multitech/Dolby setting


Did you experience this from the start (since the first time you used it) or did it started just recently? Check that the HDMI cable is connected properly at both ends and it's not near/touching any other cable or power supply. After checking this and if it is still there then it could be a fault with the cable. If you have another cable to try, that would be great.

if your completely against their products i wouldn't go for an x-ray anytime soon it's not plillips as much as just getting a lemon in a bunch of apples and if you got close to 5 years out a boxed-theater set-up i'd say you did ok learn from it and get a set-up more apt to fit what you felt that system lacked in the sound department i did ok in the local classifieds and built a system worth about 3000$ for under 750$ by finding pieces at budget deals and always checking user reviews for items i am going to purchase because 1000 opinions usually lead to find the good and bad points of a product hope this helps and sorry to hear your bad luck with your equipment

When i watch dvds,the background noise is loud

Go to your set up menu, navigate to speaker set up and check your sound levels to front, center, and rear channels. Adjust as needed to fit the room. My Sony has a test tone option which sends a signal (at levels selected) to each speaker to check sound level and if speaker is connected and in right place.

Crackling from surrond sound

I have a SONY home theater4.gif system, HT-C800DP, there is a crackling sound when playing DVDs - it is almost as if the unit overheats. Is there any solution to this? Sometimes I cannot even finish a DVD as the noise gets very loud.
