Phillips HTS3400 blinking red light

A few days ago the speakers started making a terrible noise. Sounded like screaching and a lot of bass. OUT OF THE BLUE. Now the thing won't turn on. I've unplugged it for a few min. but when i plug it back in the standby light blinks kinda fast. We dont turn it off when we go to bed we just turn the tv off. It must have shut itself off during the night.

    I have the same problem with mine. Except mine started one day when nothing was playing it was just turned on. I heard a noise and noticed the light flashing. I unplugged the system but as soon as i plug it back in it starts back. The power/standby button doesnt respond the only way to turn the system off is unplugging it.

There is a capacitor on the power supply that has gone bad, it is a 1000 mf 16v cap and you will notice the top is bulged up a little bit. there are three in a row and this is the center one. Radio shack replacement part for $1.73 and you are back in business. Tim

    twood95 is right. I have the same problem. Replacing 1000mfd/16v solved my problem. Thanks twood95.

    I, too, had the blinking red light. A capacitor on the power supply had a bulging top. I replaced it and 4 others in the area ( no good reason for the extras) and now I am humming along with theme music.

Many other users reporting the same problem using different description. Mine was doing this same thing and now just sits there and buzzes until I press the power button and then it's quiet for a few seconds. I've taken my power supply loose, but there isn't anything obviously wrong and is more than likely a $3 part like a capacitor that has gone dry.

There is a user "meelous" that said he had a fix for this, but he hasn't responded yet. Look at the other posts using the HTS3400 and watch for a real solution, other than throwing it away and doing without.

Good luck.

I have a 50 inch DLP samsung and it wont power on after making a lot of noise (I replaced the lamp) worked fine for a few days now the red light and the right side green light is blinking. any sugge


The answers above are correct. It's either the lamp or the color wheel. Testing the lamp is pretty straight forward. Use an Ohm meter to see if the it's filament has continuity. It's unlikely that a good color wheel would fail immediately after changing the lamp. Look to see if some wiring is out of place and rubbing the wheel causing the noise you described. A jammed but otherwise good color wheel would cause the TV to shut down and display an error code.

Noise/No Bass in Delco Systems stereo


You have a possible fault in your wiring of the speakers, the Phases of the speakers are crossed over resulting in cancelling of the low frequency- bass frequency. Hence please reconnect the speakers front and rear with the positive/ negative to the corresponding positive and negative of the speakers.If you are unable to fix the marking of the polarity use 1.5 Volt cell to connect to the speakers , if the speaker moves up the terminal on the positve of battery is positive. reconnect and test with a good bass song for result. Helpful. Good day

GK 1001 rb speaker overload, is my guess


This problem is not likely to be a volume control problem. There is a transistor inside that is failing (getting noisy) when heated up. If you have no experience with amp repairs, do not attempt this as it is not simple to locate the defective part. Continued use in this condition can cause problems with the speakers. Please have this serviced by a repair shop with experience with GK gear.

Distortion/noise and buzz in front left speaker


Try to see if the reciever will make the buzzing/noise without anything connected to it except power, and speakers. Tune into a local radio station and see if the noise continues. If the noise has stopped, then you know there is an issue with the player or cable.
