Question about Philips HTS3400/37B System
When i try to turn the system on the power light just flashes and nothin happens it just keeps flashin and tickin
There is a single capacitor on the main power board that has burned out. I found another site that had a great step by step with pics but now cant find the link...if you take the unit apart and look at the board where the power cord is connected...run your finger across the top of the black and silver capacitors you will find one that is slightly buldging up...that is your problem child...a new one cost a whole $1.62 at Frys...it cost me 3 bucks for the solder since I couldn't find mine...it took about 35 minutes to repair...the hardest part is flipping the board over and melting the correct solder point ....search around and see if you can find the web site I mentioned he did a great job of explaining it...his fix was for a slightly newer model but it was spot on...good luck

Hey meelous, you still there?
How did you fix it? Full Wave Bridge went out?
It's always a $3 part and $100 in labor, that's why all consumer electronics are disposable. It's cheaper to throw them away and do without than to fix them.
