Re: Philips LX3600D Home theatre always returns to...
There is a 1ohm resistor on the 4x4 pcb as soon as you take off the cover. ( I forget the ID # ) It supplys the -15volts to the control bd. The resistor will not looked burned. It was under rated. An ohm meter will find it ( open ). Rreplace it with a 1/3 watt. I believe the orig. was a 1/4 watt.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The only thing I can find in the manual (link below) is to remove the power cord for a few minutes & try powering on from the "Standby ON" button, also set the "source" to anything other than TV.
Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.
For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.
If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.
For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer
If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that
Nvidia graphics cards seem to work best in this area.
If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.
Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.
Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.
Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%
Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.
Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.
I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture.
I have the same problem. However you can't abandon the system since the player has an inbuilt 5.1 channel amplifier. I have been told by someone that I can use another DVD player and connect AV chord to LX3600 D which will be used as amplifier only.
The speaker cables for the LX3600D are: (+) is blank, whereas (-) has slightly shaded bands along it. Once you see these bands its easy to open up the connector and check they are the correct way around.
Power up the set and open tray in DVD mode. Press <9999> follow by <X> buttons on the Remote control. where x = numeric 1 to 6 denoting the regions below:
Then show your region on TV 1 = USA 2 = Europe 3 = Asia Pacific 4 = Australia, New Zealand, Latam 5 = Russia, India 6 = China
0 = Code Free
