1. First things first, READ the Instruction Manual, I know most of you guys out there hate reading the instruction manuals but every system is different, so I'll generalize this article for an average system you can find at a retail store today.

2. Make sure you have the right cables to connect your TV to your Home Theater System, now days the best connection is called "HDMI" (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) this cable uses a digital signal to transfer both video and audio while giving you the best quality possible. But please make sure your Home Theater System has the "HDMI" as an input option. If it does not, you might have to resort to a analog connection such as "Component Cables" which will provide you with a High-Definition connection but with analog quality.

3. Now if you are using a current TV and a current Home Theater System and your system is able to use the "HDMI" cable, connection to said devices will be pretty easy, just hook one end of the "HDMI" cable to the "HDMI" input on the back of the TV, and the other end of the "HDMI" to the "HDMI" output on the back of the Home Theater System. Turn your devices on and make sure your input/outputs are configured for "HDMI" usage and vola! You should now be able to see and hear everything your heart desires!

4. Organization is key, after you have checked your connections and everything is working the way you want it to, utilize the cable/wire loom to organize your cables and use the zip ties to secure them in place, not too tight though, if you want to change things around in the future it's easier to cut the zip ties if you have enough room between the cable and the zip tie.

Philips HTS3100 tray will not open. Is there a manual 'paperclip hole' way to open it?

No there is not. You have to take it apart to remove the disc that may or may not be in there.

I have an hts 3100 philips home theater dvd player it plays some dvd's and some others not(coming the message no disc) Can you help me about it?Why does this happen?

Hi, is your DVD player anew one?if yes the lens that makes the CD play is not OK.But if it's an old one, you can get DVD lens cleaner toclean up the lens of the DVD player...

It's the problem of dirt inside the DVD player especially the lens area.

After cleaning up the lens and still does not play, you will need to replace the DVD player lens with anew one..

You can go to the nearest repair outlet for replacement of the lens ...

Hope you understand..

Take care...

Recheck that you hooked it up exactly as stated in the quick start guide. If there is no sound when playing DVD, return it immediately or call Philips to get replacement. If you get sound when playing DVD, but from no other sources, then make sure that the end of the cord NOT plugged into the Philips says OUT or OUTPUT - many TV's do not have outputs.

If you have a later Philips home cinema model: HTS3100, 3300, 3500, 3154, 3357, 6510 & others, the sound from the TV will go through the existing scart connection.

Just select TV on the home cinema remote control.

For any other models, use a scart - twin phono lead (red & white), from the TV to one of the inputs into the home cinema.

Scarts 1 & 2 on the TV will have different results. Try both.

No CD sound on Philips DVD/VCR player

I havent seen this model But in the past I have heard this problem arise. It turned out that there was a mute button for the cd only on the remote and there was no indicator to show it. check for a cd mute or go into the cd play menu and check around in there.
