Question about Philips WACS700 Shelf System
Plug it into mains and screen turns on, I get message saying Booting up Please wait, but thats all it seems to do. i cant actualy turn the machine on with the standbye-on button, please help
This can be caused by either corrupt firmware, or bad connection between the front panel and main unit.
The firmware can be restored as follows:
Unpluck the unit from the mains.
Press and hold [STOP] & [SOURCE]
Plug unit into mains.
Continue to hold the two buttons until the recovery message appears on screen.
If the progress bar doesn't move at all within 5 minutes, then this is not the problem.
This problem can also be 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.

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input. Get a cable like the one described here:
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.
