Open Question

Capacitor issues I have a buzzing in my * Philips HTS3450 - home theater system. As recommended on the internet by several people I am replacing 2 470uF capacitors in the subwoofer. However now that I have the unit open I dont see any capacitors that are visually the same size or that have the same number as the replacement capacitors. Moreover I cannot find a wiring schematic to guide me... can you help??sd

Unless you are good with wiring and can accept having the front cover broken, then you can do it yourself. The speaker protector can be gently pried off but will probably break if not done perfectly. If you get the front cover off, there should be 4 screws holding the speaker. Remove them and then you can see inside. Take note of how the resisters are attached. You may need to solder if they are separated. If you are confident handling this job, go for it, if not, take it to your local repair shop.

umm, I hooked mine up yesterday, and I my tv has dolby digital signals going out. If your tv doesn't, that will cause some (if any) to not work. Also, make sure you have your sound setting to stereo and not mono, that will also cause some of the speakers to not work correctly.

Finally, make sure you have your tv's Audio (left/right) OUT going to the main units (your dvd player's) Audio (left/right) IN.

And have your video going from the main units OUT to one of your Tv's cmp or vid IN

Thats about it really.

SOURCE: GE Washing Machine Replacement Motor - Capacitor? Relay? Schematic?

The new units have all of your schematics, capacitor and a higher price for a reason. With GE I avoid used parts because there is so much electronics you don't want to fry. The wire harness leads match the old and there should not be an extra wire, were would it go if there is not a receptacle for it?
I looked up your unit and the motor replacement is WH20X10009 for the model you quoted. As of now GE is has updated this to model wh20x10006 for around 263 dollars.

Hi I have a Philips HTS3450 system but lost the Subwoofer, Is there a way that I can connect the Subwoofer connection to my Panasonic Home theator system to get the sound? Thanks in advance


I'm not sure what you mean by "connecting the Subwoofer connection to my Panasonic Home Theater System"

If you want to watch something on the Philips and send the audio to your Panasonic Home Theater you can buy a VGA to AV Adapter Cable. Just connect it to the back of the Philips HTS3450, get an AV cable (red,white,yellow) and run it to the Panasonic.

I recommend buying it here: http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=212966742

No Sound


you are probably actually looking for two 16v capacitors, not 25v. They are either black or brown near the huge copper coil magnet capacitor at the end of the board. A thin, tall metal heatsink sits between it and the copper coil capacitor. Philips is notorious for their completely worthless stereo systems, so they probably knew about the problem with the capacitors and put in 25v for later versions of the hts3450.

You don't have to worry,the cost is less because the problem is minimal. The capacitor is cost $5 only and little resoldering works,maybe $100 all in all..

Hope this may help;

As I found somewhere on the internet; there are two 470uF/25V capacitors on the power supply board in the sub-woofer that are the cause of buzzing, crackling and then eventually no sound. Go to Radio Shack and buy two Catalog #: 272-1030 470uF/35V capacitors and change them out. They are in the middle of the Power Supply PCB and are close to the long flat aluminum heatsink. Make sure you match the polarity properly when replacing. Your unit will be as good as new and will proibably last forever now.
