HTS9800W/12 and rear speakers

Hello I have HTS9800W/12 and my neighbour have same model, so now my rear speakers make connection with neighbour´s system not mine.

I changed ID channel (now ID=2) under receiver box (blue light box) and it helped - no connection with neighbour system. But now my system also dont make connection with receiver box.

How I can change ID channel in HTS9800W/12 model?

It should work by holding down SURR button, but I read that with "/12" model it dont work?!

I also have a hts9800w with rear speaker problems. Wireless box (covers the 3 rear speakers) intermittently not connecting when powering on. Tried different frequencies on the box/DVD unit but still the same problem. Have always had this problem even after swapping the whole system. Philips have arranged to replace the remote box but I don't believe that it is going to work

Try this one:

Set up the HTS9800W and playback any CD. Toggle the ‘SURR’ button on the remote control till 6.1 audio surround mode is shown on the FTD.
Please check if there is a blue light on top of the wireless receiver box.
1a) If Yes, there is a blue light,
Step 1 -> Press and hold SOUND button on the remote control to change channel. The channel
change is reflected on the front display of the set as CH0, CH1 or CH2.
Check if there is audio. If no audio, please repeat procedure to change channel till all 3 channels
are tried. If there is audio from the rear speakers, issue is solved.
If not, please proceed to Step 2.
Step 2 -> Press and hold SURR button on the remote control to change ID. This ID change is
reflected on the front display of the set as ID1, ID2 or ID3.
Note: For later sets(if above procedure do not work), the procedure to change the ID is as follows:
1) Go to Aux mode
2) Key in “8” , “6” ,”2”, “4”
3) ID change is reflected on the FTD of the set as ID1, ID2 or ID3.
Step 3 -> Repeat step 2 till FTD shows ID1. Proceed to look for a mechanical switch (hidden by a
white sticker) at the bottom of the wireless receiver set and switch it to number '1'. See Fig 2 to 4
for ID switch location. Check for blue light on top of the wireless receiver box and audio from all
the rear speakers.
Blue LED ON

Peel off the white sticker label to reveal

If there is no audio, please repeat Step 2 and 3 till you get ID2 and set the wireless receiver box
switch to ‘2’. Check again for blue light on top of the wireless receiver box and audio from all the
rear speakers.
If there is no audio, please repeat Step 2 and 3 till you get ID3 and set the wireless receiver box
switch to ‘3’. Check again for blue light on top of the wireless receiver box and audio from all the
rear speakers.

Hope that helps....

Does your system have a separate volume or level control for the rear speakers? also, are they subs? or actual rear speakers?

    There are an awful lot of
    nice things to say about Philips' HTS9800W home theatre system. This
    6.1 wireless home theatre system has an air of Bang & Olufsen about
    it, minus the price tag. Wafer thin speakers combine with a vertically
    mounted DVD player to create a system that looks, and more importantly,
    sounds excellent. On top of this, wireless connectivity frees the rear
    three speakers, making tangled wires trailing across the living room a
    thing of the past. Just make sure you've got room for all the extra
    cables that are going to be cluttering up the front.

    With the HTS9800W Philips really has raised
    the bar when it comes to affordable yet stylish home theatre. The
    design of the system wouldn't look out of place in a package costing
    many times the relatively modest asking price. The six sleek speakers
    are identical, each housing two small woofers and a neodymium ribbon
    tweeter. The four corner speakers can be wall mounted or attached to
    the included chrome stands, whereas the centre and rear-centre speakers
    come with built in stands and are placed horizontally. A plainly
    finished matching subwoofer completes the package.
    What really sets the system off is the main
    DVD player, which spurns the usual boxy look and opts for a standalone
    vertical design. This isn't so good if you wish to place it under the
    television, but it looks great so there's no need to hide it away. The
    system is touch sensitive, with a panel of glowing blue controls along
    the front, and a slot-in DVD mechanism on the side. A one line LCD
    displays track names across the middle of the unit.
    Because the system is so unusually shaped,
    there are limited connections on the box itself, with only an FM radio
    antenna and HDMI out. Everything else is connected using a junction
    box, which is itself connected with some fairly clunky cables. This
    auxiliary connection box houses component, composite and coaxial
    connections. There's no optical or S-video anywhere on the system. The
    remote is one of the few let-downs with regards to the design. Finished
    in plain silver, it is unintuitive to use and rather unattractive in
    comparison to the main system.

    When it comes to connecting the speakers
    Philips has used some simple colour coded plugs and a proprietary
    connection to ensure simplicity. The front three speakers attach
    directly to the subwoofer, while the rear three connect to a wireless
    receiver that needs A/C power to operate. Once this is done everything
    is ready to go. Philips doesn't include an automatic calibration
    microphone, so it's necessary to set the levels and delay of each
    speaker manually. At first we found the centre speaker to be far too
    loud and the rear corner speakers too soft, but we were easily able to
    correct this.

    We grew even fonder of this system after
    performing our audio tests, where it performed brilliantly, especially
    for music. Across all genres the sound was rich and involving, with
    deep bass and crisp audio through the higher frequencies. The Rolling
    Stones' Sympathy for the Devil and Outkast's GhettoMusick
    sounded spot on. The unit is also capable of high volumes without
    distortion, though is perhaps a little quiet when watching DVDs.
    Philips include several sound modes such as action, drama and sci-fi
    which equalise the sound for the appropriate kind of film and we found
    them quite useful in the right situations.
    Using HDMI out the picture quality from the
    HTS9800W was very good, with the inclusion of basic brightness and
    contrast controls handy for fine tuning the picture. The hallucinogenic
    colours in Shark Boy and Lava Girl were recreated perfectly
    without over-saturation. Another nifty feature from Philips is the lip
    synch control, for when the picture and sound are not in time. Like
    most home theatre systems these days the HTS9800W isn't limited to
    playing just DVDs or CDs. Philips has included support for Super Audio
    CDs (SACD) which are touted as a high-end alternative to regular CDs.
    Also included is support for DivX movies, JPEG photos and MP3/WMA music
    files. Philips has produced one of the few interfaces where access to
    these data files is actually intuitive, and where the system recognises
    multiple kinds of files on the same disc. Playback quality is good, and
    we were especially impressed by the unit's MP3 and WMA output, with a
    dedicated digital music setting giving great, lifelike sound.

    Overall the HTS9800W is an impressive system.
    Its unusual, yet attractive, design makes it an ideal purchase for the
    style conscious buyer who also wants great performance and practicality
    to boot.

    Here's the fix: power off the sub-woofer and wait for 60 secs before
    powering it on again. My rear receiver works every time now. I guess
    the sub-woofer isn't just a dumb speaker; it has some kind of smarts in it too.


    Prior to this, I had only tried cycling power to the DVD player itself. I
    also re-seated the two, fat cables connected to the junction box. One of them
    had worked itself slightly loose and the result was completely absent speaker
    channels. You can connect also your PC / Laptop you will need a cable that
    haves a headphone jack to RCA cables and you will plug the headphone in to the
    computer and the RCA in to your home theater system.

When playing a disc voices are destorted


Are the speakers correctly connected and assigned, particularly the Center? Perhaps it's blown or damaged. Swap another speaker into that slot (Page 16) and the center into another connector as a temporary test to prove if the speaker itself is/is not the problem.

No surround sound


It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

My rear centre speaker wont stop crackling really loud constantly when the surround sound is on, any idea's why this would be happening??


It's a short or a loose connection. Check where it hooks up to the surround system or sub. depending on what kind you have. Or you might have a mouse chewed it or a staple through it check the wire run for issues.

Check that you have connected the component video lead to the correct sockets in both the TV and the HTS9800W.

There are two sets of Phono (cinch) connectors, which are grouped together.

Red / Green / Blue - Component connectors - video only

Red / White / Yellow - Stereo audio and composite video connectors - audio and vide

If you have inadvertently connected the red audio connector to the red component input on the TV, it would cause similar symptoms as you describe.

Its not designed to play HD DVDs, the model has HDMI connection in order to connect to latest output devices, viz flats panels and LCD tvs there by having a common audio and video cable. your model has a feature to upscale the normal DVD singal to match the quality output of hull HD TVs, hence the HDMI out put, do not confuse this with HD compatiability.

though yours is a high end set, but its not HD disc compatiable.
