Question about Philips HTS3450 System
Here's the deal when I press the stand by button the power button simply flashes but does not power up and I also have noticed a ticking sound which seems to coincide with the power button what do you think could be the problem?
As I found somewhere on the internet; 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. Make sure you match the polarity properly when replacing. Your unit will be as good as new and will proibably last forever now.
