My question is. . Is it possible to use a philips HTS3450 surround sound system without the blueray player?

Depends on how you intend to hook it up otherwise you will get no sound from the speakers if you delete the DVD player from the circuit. The speakers require a power source and this is provided via the DVD player.

You cannot connect those speakers up to an amplifier or an AV Receiver because the speaker connections are not compatible. The connections to the speaker wire where they plug into the DVD player would have to be changed because there needs to be a left and right wiring connection for each speaker.

So if I were you I would not mess with the system and just route everything via the DVD as it is designed to be done.

How do you hook up multiple av cables$jpglarge$

There are several options for these hook-up depending on your TV outputs. So I refer you to the owners manual for the Phillips system. Read through and study the section which shows connections. I think it's page 18.

This systems speakers and remote were donated to our Boys and Girls Club. We did not get the DVD player. Is there a way to get just a DVD player that will work with all the speakers?

You sort of have to stick with it or something like it from Panasonic.

Ask and ye shall receive. Here's the electronic part and an iPod dock on eBay...

"Comes with ipod dock and remote as pictured if you cover extra shipping charges sub can be included but no speakers comes with connectors to connect speakers to unit."

I have the home theater system model HTS3440/37. I've had this for a couple of years, and now all of a sudden, it won't read any discs. It comes up after a couple of seconds and says "No Disc"....

Well, let's see.

A) A whole used HTS3440 is available on eBay for $102 delivered.

B) A compatible HTS3450 base unit goes for $79 delivered...

C) Connect a new or existing outboard DVD/BluRay player to it.

Proprietary connectors usually imply proprietary function. Home Theater in a Box runs that way and are typically Not Economically Repairable.

Though it may be possible to construct cabling that adapts 'normal' standardized audio to your HTIB speakers, is it really worth it?

I'd got with option C as it would be a better investment in equipment with longevity and forward compatibility.

How to extend speaker cables of Philips MX6050D DVD Home Theater

Go down to your local RadioShack or any place that sells wire of any sorts (heck, even Walmart might carry it now) and ask them for speaker wire. I'm not sure what the impedance of this particular model is, but you should be able to find it printed on the back of the speakers, or in your user's manual. This guide will help you to identify what size speaker wires you need, that way when you go in looking for speaker wire, you'll at least sound like you know what you're doing.

Dvd player works, but no sound from any speakers

yes, company will charge you, but the best suggestion is to get repaired from the company person.
The normal problems are bad contact of speaker wires and settings of sound from the sound menu. I think you are a genius guy, so you might have checked such things, so now its better to give it to PHILIPS SERVICE CENTRE.

Need an fm antenna

If it uses a simple terminal clip (similar to a speaker connection) then extra speaker wire or lamp cord thats laying around works beautifully. But you could always visit a Radio Shack to get the proper stuff.

I have the philips hts3440/37 none of the speakers work.

Doubtful that it is as serious as a fuse, unless it was working before and now it's not.

Are you getting no sound when watching DVD's? Try adjusting the volume on the home theater system - press the SURR button until it says "Dolby" or something like that.

Make sure it is connected like this:

The connection between the TV and the Philips for the left channel is missing or interupted.
There should be two connectors on each end, one red (right) one white (left).
If they are properly plugged in, then the left channel cable stretch is bad. These can be replaced inexpensively at any electronics store.
The sound when using the player is sent internally to the amplifier of the system; no cables.
