Question about Philips WACS700 Shelf System
When turned on says "booting up" and hangs. When pressed Source+Stop says "firmware is damaged. Restoring a new copy from the backup" and then it hangs.
When the unit remains at the booting menu it is normally a sign that your Hard drive has failed. The hard drive in the wacs700 seems to run extremely hot, probably due to it's encaged location and poor airflow. It is possible to replace the drive yourself but it is fiddly.
You could send the unit back under warranty or get it repaired.
I charge £50 + cost of the HDD + postage to repair the fault.
No fix = no fee but you will need to pay for return postage. I only replace faulty Hard Drives and don't carry out other fault finding repairs. HDD Choices up to 300GB.

This problem is usually caused by the ribbon cable connection between the front panel and the main unit. Sometimes the problem can be cured by disconnecting both ends of the cable.
The firmware should still be ok in this case.
There are multiple processors in the WACS700 unit, and the problem occurs when they can't talk to each other.
An authorised service agent should be able to sort the problem with a replacement cable.

I had this problem, what i did was to take the front of the center console and thee was a cable not conected. The cable becomes loose after you remove the front and is a pain to get back on
