Re: philips hts3410d

I solved this problem on my HTS3410D.

Inside there are two circuit boards, the power supply board and the audio/video board.

  • First, unplug your unit and let it sit for a few hours.
  • Now open the unit up, and unplug all of the connectors going to or from the power supply board. You can easily tell which board is the power supply board because it's the one the power cord plugs into.
  • Unscrew the four mounting screws that hold the board to the case.
  • Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, squeeze the two white plastic clips that hold the board to the case (one at a time), while gently lifting the board away from the case.
  • Now that you have the board out, feel the tops of all the capacitors (they look like this). Healthy capacitors should have a totally flat top. (There is probably one that is covered in some sort of heat shrink, so you can't feel the top.)
  • One capacitor most likely has a slightly bulging top. That is the culprit.
  • Using a soldering iron, carefully remove the busted capacitor, making sure to note which side the stripe is on.
  • Buy a replacement capacitor at Radio Shack or that has the same capacitance (e.g. - 1000uF) an equal or greater voltage, and an equal or greater maximum temperature.
  • Insert and re-solder the replacement capacitor in the same orientation as the one you took out, then trim the excess leads.
  • Reassemble your system, and you're done.
The capacitor that died on mine was 1,000uF, 16V, 105°C. It was located fairly close to where the power cord comes in to the board. I replaced it with a 1,000uF 50V capacitor, and the system powered right up like a champ. The entire process took me about an hour.

I hope this helps some other people have similar results.

Re: philips hts3410d

My symptom was an erratic oscillatory sound from inside the main unit with no display or functions.

It too had a 16V 1000uF capacitor fail with "dome top syndrome". The location was nearer the middle of the power supply pcb next to an inductor.

I used the inspection method - look around to see if something doesn't look normal - to find this.

FWIW there are several supply voltages coming from the power supply. +5, +12, +27, -27, and two AC lines (green wires probably for a 60 Hz clock or some other item needing a line referenced clock).

Re: philips hts3410d

Solution worked for the power issue, however I still get a 'no disc' message even when there is one in the player...time to look for a new post.

Thanks for the info SeattleTimE!

Re: philips hts3410d

I have had the unit about 3 month. It started flashing a red ring on the power button. Will not turn on. No Disc in unit. Took cover off to check to see if fuse was blown, but ok. No reset button on outside & didn't find one inside. Need help, Thanks.

Philips home cinema dvd wont eject

If you bought it with a credit card you should have up to 90 days to return it. You will void the warranty if you try my solution. look on the back and sides. There should be some small screws. Take them out and then slide the back off of the player. You should be able to see the disk tray. Some systems have a manual eject button hidden somewhere inside. Once it is open you should be able to find the model number of the dvd drive. Look up the specs and see if you can find the button. Otherwise you can try to force it open. Be extremely careful if you do this. You could strip the gears and or break it. If the gears are exposed use a small flat head screw driver and slowly turn the gears till it opens. I hope this helps.

Flashing standby and disc wont eject

Try this: Turn it off and unplug everything from the wall and the device. Then hold in the on/off button for at least sixty seconds. Replug and try it. No guarantees but worth a try to reset the device.

Unplug the power cord, wait for 5 minutes, plug the power cord back in and try to operate the unit.

If this does not work, you will have to get a technician to look at it for you.

FAC-FC7 DVD player is locked and the Standby indicator flashes

I had the same problem and searched FIX and found a solution for a Phillips DVD player that worked on my Sony DAV-FC7 dvd player. Someone posted that they called their Phillips Tech Service and was told to (a) unplug the dvd unit from the wall and wait 20 seconds,then (b) press the standby+plug the unit back into the wall at the same time and hold for 10 seconds. I did this for my Sony DAV-FC7 which would not power on nor eject (just red light on). IT WORKED!! after doing these steps, my SONY powered on and the rented DVD ejected. The dvd palyer works again. Thanks fellow FIXYA "posters".
