Question about Philips MCM570 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Just clicks and wont turn on

The standby light comes on when the power cable is plugged in, and it just clicks about every 3 or so seconds, i think this might be because i was looking on the back of it and saw a little switch that canged the voltage, and i flicked it to the lower voltage setting while the stereo was on. (it does the clicking while on the original setting, and the lower setting also) any info on fixing this would be much appreciated!

Hi Justin6992,
You have been very honest and told us the facts behind the fault, thanks for your good fault description...

Now what you have done by flicking that little switch is:-
Altered the input power design of the stereo system.

The switch is there so that the user can connect it to either the USA power supply of 110-120 volts, or connect to the Australian/New Zealand power supply of 230-240 volts.

When you turned the switch over you lowered the input to 110-120 volts yet it was still plugged into a 230-240 volt power supply.

This has blown a component inside the power supply and
now it must be replaced.
This is a specialised replacement process by a service man..

The clicking sound is made by the internal power supply (Its called a switched mode power supply) and it has detected the blown component and it is trying to reset itself automatically for you, but it cant because of the faulty component.
Its very clever in its design and if it wasnt clicking there would have been quite a loud 'bang" and a lot of smoke when the switch was moved to 110-120 volt position.

Regards From YUBEUT

Why wont the Television click on, when remote is pressed?


If it turns On just for a moment; at least, and the standby/power light at its front panel comes ON; and it goes OFF withing seconds; the main board to the set is faulty. If standby/power light at the front panel does not come On; the main power supply regulator board [inside] the TV is faulty.

My ps3 is hooked up and everything it comes on but it won't come up on my tv screen, BUT EVERYTHING IS HOOKED UP, The hdmi cable is plugged in to


Please do the following steps to reset your PS3 display :-

Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Wait for the PS3 to detect your HDMI cable.

Wont come on


Instead of just unplugging the TV, perform a power drain:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so the device is not grounded to the house. 2. Press and HOLD the product's own power button for 1 minute to drain the capacitors. 3. Plug the product back into a wall outlet and try to turn it on.
Note: This procedure works with battery operated devices as well so remove the batteries and hold down it's power button.  Electricity can remain in capacitors and on circuit boards enough to prevent normal functionality. By clearing the residue electricity, your product will have a fresh start and many times this will resolve a buggy or non-responsive device that appears to be dead.
If the TV still won't turn on, then it appears something is wrong with it's mainboard since the TV is still receiving power because the standby light is still coming on.  The cost of fixing an older TV's mainboard could be costly or impossible if the part is discontinued.

Red light comes on but the shuts off?


Mine did that and it really pised me of, sony told me to turn the power switch onthe back of the console on, when the stand by light comes on to push and hold the on button for at least 3 seconds until you hear a second set of beeps. This however didn`t work so I sent it back to Sony Australia and got it fixed up no worries.
