Question about Philips MMS 460 - PC multimedia home theatre speaker system - 80 Watt (Total) System
Cannot get surround sound to work. Only 2 of the 5 speakers work Phillips MMS 460. Those would be the Front Out speakers, marked as "white". The Surround Out do not work, unless I plug them in the other 3.5 jack connector. Then the Front Out speakers do not work. The Subwoofer does not have any sound either. The center speaker gives out no sound itselft, although the power button on top of it and the volume control do work. Could it be that the unit is defective and in need of repair? That I need to test it with a DVD or CD that will play in surround sound? I bought it open box and the retailer says they tested it and everything should work. I did notice that the external power cord plug does not fit snug. It should plug in right up tight to the subwoofer. It does not. Could that be the problem? I have a Gateway computer and the hookups all color coordinated, the installation was no problem.
I have a relatively similar problem with the MMS 430 version (only 2 satelites) The subwoofer works intermittently, mostly.. don't. It first happened a few months after the warranty expired...nothing unusual here id say. The funny thing is after a few months of being pulled over, it worked for 2-3 hours/days...and there ew go, subwoofer dead again. This is really annoiyng, I use to love those speakers. Now I can only enjoy them once in a few months :)
