Question about Philips HTS3450 System
How did u fix the problem of the sound. my system too is acting up ther picture but no sound
There are two 470uF/25V capacitors on the power supply board in the sub-woofer that are the cause of buzzing, crackling and then eventually no sound. Go to Radio Shack and buy two Catalog #272-1030 470uF/35V capacitors and change them out. They are in the middle of the Power Supply PCB and are close to the long flat aluminum heatsink. As far as installation instructions go; you have to have some soldering experience, first. You will also need some type of de-soldering device, be it a solder ****** or solder wick to remove the caps. Make note of the polarity before removing. Then it is just a matter of popping the new ones in (they are slightly larger than the originals so they might not go all the way down flush with the PCB) and soldering them back in. Make sure you do not make any solder shorts or your system will be toast! Your unit will be as good as new and will probably last forever now.

WheatService's advise worked. It wasn't hard at all. I pulled out the bad capacitors with plires. Then I put the new ones in and soldered them in from the back.

Obviously something is wrong with circuits. Have it checked by pro/tech
