Question about Philips HTS3500S System

1 Answer

DVD Player When I switched on the power, the system did not come alive. On investigation by the local technician, it was observed that the fuse had blown off and there was a short circuitry also, necessitating replacement of components. Is it possible that once a fuse had blown off, still the components are likely to get damaged?

The blown fuse is caused my an overload in the circuit. It can be caused by a faulty component or just some short circuit..Yes, if the fuse has blown off, there is a "chance" that componets inside may be faulty which caused the overload in the first place.

Centre speaker does not work following setting up system again after moving house.

Many systems have an option to switch off the centre speaker. You should investigate this.
What sometimes happens when the power is fully switched off for some time on these sort of systems, is that the memory chip that remembers system settings loses it's memory. Sometimes it has a small capacitor that stores a small voltage that keeps the memory chip alive during power outages. However over time these stop storing the small voltage needed. And need to be replaced. Normally they don't affect the system until you switch off the power. As many uses leave them in standby mode. It is often worse on radio station settings, with units that have tunners, losing all station settings.
If this applies to you, have a look around for one of these capacitors, called Memory Retention Capacitors, and replace it. Image below as to what they look like. They are always about 5.5 volts.

How to change the indicated voltage which is indicated volt adjustment

Where the power cord plugs into the unit look for a red slide switch. One side will say 220 and the other will say 120. Use a finger nail to change the switch to match your local power voltage.

My Panasonic sc-VKX60 doesn't switch on. What I should check.

First fuses in the plug then internal ones. Then investigate the power supply section. Starting with the power switch, then transformer etc.

If you replace an internal fuse and it blows again, suspect an overload somewhere.

If you are a capable technician, it's easy to remove the outer cover to the system, which should give access to the DVD player belt to replace it. Otherwise, have a local electronics repair shop do it. It's not that difficult... just be sure to unplug the unit before opening it up.

My unit wont turn on


from my experience, I think your player is having a power problem. It must have received excess voltage/irregular power supply which has damaged an IC or capacitor on the power board of the player.

Sometimes this excess power supply might damage the player's main board. This is why it is advice able that you use step down for your player, because DVD player don't need excess power as something might be damaged.

To solve this problem, you will be needing a meter. Open the player, use the meter to read the components on the power board as it will help you discover the component that got damaged and you can then replace the bad component.

But if you do not have the knowledge of fixing this problem, you might be needing the help of a service technician.

Take care.

No power to Insignia dvd player.

Pop the top of the DVD player and check the fuse. It's located right next to the AC power plug on the inside. If the fuse is OK, replace the DVD player. Repairs cost more than a new unit. Sony has DVD players from $ 40. Any repair on any device would cost more than that. If your lucky, the unit just took a surge and blew the fuse. Hope this helps

How do I get my house dvd tray open it stuck and not dvd or cd is in it.

First attempt is to turn off the DVD Player, unplug the DVD player power cord from the electric supply, wait about 5 minutes, plug back the power cord, turn on the DVD player, press the open/close button.

If this does not work, the DVD player cover will have to be removed and the tray manually operated to determine the cause for it not being opened electronically. This might require the services of a technician.

Please rate this solution - Thanks
