The subwoofer light stays red regardless of the state it is in despite it being labled a standby light. (It's more of a power on light) It seems that philips missed the point of what a standby light is.

I would have expected the light to have changed colour to indicate that the unit was operational and perhaps syncing with the receiver box.

There would be some problem in the output amplifier stage. Thats why its going to protection mode.

How do I program the jamo torsten sound bar to my remote control?


Great product, horrible instructions that focused on every language known to man rather than clear steps. Hope this helps....for the JAMO TORSTEN 2 WAY SOUNDBAR W/ WIRELESS 10" SUB 360 Series, as well as other Klipsch soundbars.

If the SoundBar is in STANDBY mode (solid RED status light), push the <SOURCE> button on the SoundBar until the status light is solid GREEN.

STEP ONE (Place the unit in learning mode): With the status light showing solid GREEN, press and hold the <SOURCE> and <MUTE> buttons on the front of the SoundBar at the same time (approximately 3 seconds) until the status light flashes RED and GREEN.

STEP TWO (Select the function to learn): Press the <MUTE> button once on the SoundBar (the status light changes to solid ORANGE).

STEP THREE (Learn the function): Hold your remote control within one foot and pointed at the front of the SoundBar. Slowly press the <MUTE> button on your remote control four times. On the first three presses, the status indicator light will flicker ORANGE with each press. If the unit has successfully learned the function, on the fourth press of the button, the light will flash GREEN several times and then turn to solid GREEN.

To program the remaining functions, simply repeat all steps, substituting <MUTE> with the new function and button presses (VOLUME UP, and VOLUME DOWN) on steps TWO and THREE.

Button standby


The receiver is in protect mode, most likely due to a damaged amplifier. This protect mode, keeps the unit from turning on and causing further damage to itself and/or your speaker system. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Subwoofer pops when first powered on


If the cable is really old try getting a new one. I would recommend either a monoprice cable or a mediabridge cable both are as high quality and much cheaper than a monster.

We have a Harman Kardon home theatre system that is between 5-10 years old. The subwoofer has SUB-TS5 on the back and is currently not working. We noticed in the past when watching an action movie that...


The sub-ts5 had glue that went conductive on the circuit board and when it is removed unit should work again a good tech should be able to fix this for you

HTS9800 Wireless receiver not working


I have just bought one of these today and have had the exact same problem. No rear sound and no blue light on the receiver box.

Solution:
What philips don't tell you in the manual and on the support site is that the receiver box has a switch hidden under a white sticker; next to the left of the right speaker connection. The switch has 3 positions which can be selected. I had tried each switch position and power cycled the subwoofer each time until eventually i got a blue light on the receiver box.

You may also need to select the correct channel on the control box by pressing the "sound" button for 5 seconds on the remote control.



It took me quite a while to try the different combinations until it finally worked. I can't imagine that Philips would have sent the system out without testing the wireless partnership first, so I am guessing my wireless network could have had something to do with it. (forever the optimist).

I did expect the subwoofer standby light to have gone off or changed colour once operational, but this just seems to stay on no matter what state it is in.

I'm in the same boat... happened once before, then came back to life. Now it's back to a red standby light and no ejecting tray
