Philips HTS8100 not working after non use of 1 month

Unit was left unplugged for about a month. when hooked up again, soundbar would turn on, but go straight to 'disc source' and not be able to switch to any other source. even the disc source didnt function. the only things i am able to do are adjust volume related things on the remote (which doesnt do anything since none of the sources are functioning), and when the power is pressed down, 'entering low pwr' would show on the soundbar and will display that until unit is unplugged.

SOURCE: Low Volume from right speaker of entertainment center - turntable only

Hi There thanks for your very good desctiption of the problem it really helps to have a lot of detail...

There are Mono and stereo types of stylis cartridges and it sounds like you have a mono equipped into a stereo amplifier..

If there are 4 small coloured wires visible under the stylis then
its a stereo stylis and should work, have a close look and maybe one of the small wires has dropped of the small pins on the back opf the stylis cartridge.

If there only two wires visible then its a mono cartridge and this is why you only have sound from one channel..

So answer is wires dropped of the stylis.
or
Wrong type of stylis cartridge.
or
if there are four wires and thay all look connected then perhaps the stylis is faulty and you need to replace it...

Cheers from YU BEUT

SOURCE: I recently bought a Philips

low power is just another word for standby, when doing this press the power on button again, or press something on the unit to power it up. if it still does not work you might have a power issue on the power board. call your manufacturer or ceck your manual.

How to Remove a Stuck DVD From Your DVD Player

  1. Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
  2. Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It’s the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
  3. Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don’t want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
  4. Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn’t quite finished yet.
  5. Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
  6. Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you’re careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

How do you unlock your TV from Protective Mode? There is a certain code that you need in order to unlock the Television. The technicians are saying that it went into Protective Mode, when it umplugged all by itself. I need the code so I can watch my TV again.

How do i repair low audio on my philips soundbar hts8100/37. All connections are correct. I have to turn sound bar up to max volume to hear it. The problem is intermittent. Could it be a software problem.


My HTS8100 2 yrs ago stopped working properly, sound was on its max and little was heard. Well after searching for solutions and took it for repair which was a waste, my brother came from Australia for a holiday who is a technician and fixed it for me. The problem is in the subwoofer, I am uploading a photo where this part is , STRX6759 SANKEN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT STRX6759. Its behind that capasitor. When I changed it the sound worked. Hope you will find it useful.
