SOURCE: Sound Problem

Hello people.
First of all, you must be carefull with flatcables and with statics and ressolder all the heatsinks zones, prior to the big one where the output audio amplifier chips are mounted. Ressolder no matter you can´t see anyting wrong.
After it reassemble the pcb mainboard and gently press the pcb over M62446. It´s the volume and tone control. If the sound fails, it must be ressoldered. (SMD, not easy for beginners, and therefore not recommended) or replaced.
Check other components on the enviroment.
Press gently to test.
Ressolder is recommended for all the main board.

SOURCE: Philips HTS3450 System Problem buzzing/clicking sound on startup. Now nothing.

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 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!

I have had a rather disoncerting lw level buzzing

I had the same after about 15 months. It seems to happen when charging the iPOD. I took it back to John Lewis, it was returned to B&W and came back repaired 8 working days later. I was very pleased with the service. As an added bonus B&W restarted the 2 yr guarantee.

Philips HTS3455/98 System "NO SOUND" PlZ Help!!

There are two capacitors on the power board that are 470uf/35v. go to Radioshack and buy two catalog #272-1030 470uf/35v radial lead capacitors. if you have soldering wick and a soldering iron, then this will cost you under $3.00. when you remove them, the capacitors have a white strip with a negative sign on it. match this up with the shaded area on the board. put it back together, and it will work, and last a long time. I have this same system, and it wouldn't play any sound. so, I replaced the capacitors. Hope this helps!0ccab8c.jpg

Buzzing noise

If the sound goes out completely, try hitting the mute button (to mute it) and then hit it again (to un-mute). I've found that this work-around typically gets it working, at least.
