I had the same problem except my volume would just decrease after a few minutes of being on like someone was pressing the volume down buttton. If I walked over to the subwoofer and gave it a knock on the top the volume would instantly come back on where I had it set before. I took WheatService's advice and replaced the 470uF/25Vcapacitors and everything is working great now. I am very pleased. BTW, the parts at radio shack were like $3.00. I needed a desoldering tool, which I would recommend for this job...the one with the suction ball. I also needed some more soldering wire for a total repair cost of about $17. If you have all the tools the capacitors will cost you $3.00. Philips wanted to send me a replacement unit for $100.00 and I'm sure the local repair shop would have been the same if not more. Thanks again, WheatService!

If the receiver is actually powering up but you are getting no sound, there are few basic things to check.
Check the audio connections on the back (speakers AND inputs) to make sure they are tight at both ends and undamaged. Go into the setup screen for the DVD player and make sure the audio settings are set for PCM output and that you are using a digital or optical audio cable. Then make sure you have the correct function selected on the receiver to match the inputs. If the receiver has a speaker test function, use it to see if there is any output from the speakers. Finally, make sure the volume is turned up and the mute button is off.
Otherwise, the amplifier may be faulty

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.

You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.
I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.
