I have a Philips HTS3450 system that has worked fine for about a year now. Yesterday we were watching tv and the sound went out. I tried powering off for a little, reconnecting all connections, etc, but still no sound. I can still get a picture when watching a dvd. Do you have a solution for this?
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.

I'm not sure what you mean by "connecting the Subwoofer connection to my Panasonic Home Theater System"
If you want to watch something on the Philips and send the audio to your Panasonic Home Theater you can buy a VGA to AV Adapter Cable. Just connect it to the back of the Philips HTS3450, get an AV cable (red,white,yellow) and run it to the Panasonic.
yes.modern TVs have good speakers,and the bravia has a good set,with adjustable sound fields,plus a decent amp in them.just use good cables,and use component video cables,or HDMI if yr DVD has it.most have 1080 video resolution nowadays
reset the device to factory settings, it is written in your manual how to do this. If that doesnot work, unplug the powersocket for about 30minutes, it will cause an internal reset which might solve it.
I have been quite involved with a sound problem in my HTS3450 (search for the topic "sound in only 3 channels"), and I learned that when you are in the setup menu the speaker volume will be greyed out if there is a disc in the tray...remove the disc, wait for the "disc loading" dialogue to switch to "no disc", the try accessing the setup menu again. Other than that I have no advise if you once had proper function after moving the system. Check out my experiences with the cable connecting the sub to the DVD/receiver in my postings. Good luck.

Press the surround button on the Philips remote to see if the subwoofer will begin producing noise - the surround button switches the mode from simple stereo to full surround. I would test the surround button while watching a DVD, because not every tv channel is going to even produce surround effects. Good luck!
I just figured it out right now. Press the "AUX/DI" button twice. When you push it once, it selects the "AUX" input and when you push it a second time, the screen will show that you've selected the "DI" input.
Thanks to Phillips for not making a theatre system that automatically selects for you... =P
