Question about Philips (DBMMS171) Computer Speakers

Open Question

There is a remote with two male plugs one connects to the aux in speaker base and the other to the audio source ... The wire had connection problems in other words you had to position them just right for sound to come out. I cut off the rubber protective casing and twisted the wires I got up to look for tape because I let it sit and that seemed to fix the problem the cords were tangled so I unplugged them to untangle reconnected them and can't get any sound to come out at all now hopefully that makes sense thanks for any input

SOURCE: No audio is coming through my speakers

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

SOURCE: Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)

Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!

SOURCE: No sound via TV when PC connected

1. Ensure the TV is set to "home" mode in the user menu. If set to "Shop" it will not retain audio settings change

2. verify that the Audio out from the PC is working. Use a set of headphones just to verify

3. Triple check that you have the audio input assigned to the correct HDMI input

4. after doing these if it still doesn't work, I would suspect the Software update had a side affect that phillips is not aware of. Since this function would probably be missed by Phillips software testers, it is highly likely that this is possible. Contact phillips and let them troubleshoot the problem with you. Let them know it happed after you did the update also and let them know that you have verified the audio out from the PC.

SOURCE: Speaker wire problem

Yes you can splice the ends onto the existing wires, but first make sure the ends are labeled + or - and make sure you hook the other ends to the speakers the correct way. Before you cut the connectors off of the speaker wires mark one of each of the pairs of the wires with tape, on each side of where you cut it so you can match the wires back up. Are the pre-wired, wires labeled + and -? or red and black? Or one of each pair is a different color wire ie silver and copper? If they aren't labeled its going to be hard to get the correct polarity (+ and -) for each speaker. I hope this helps post back if you have any problems.

SOURCE: I am adding solderless phono plugs to one end of

# 1 - You don't put phono plugs or jacks on to the speaker leads. You must have audio output jacks on your set in order to utilize surround sound. The only other way is if your using a cable box or vrc that has the audio output jacks. The way you just mentioned is the fastest way to blow your audio output ic's in the set.

Audio is not working


Is audio out on all sources? Check mute button on remote. Check audio in tv menu. connect audio out of tv to external amp. Like the aux in of your stereo receiver. If you have sound there then next remove and test speakers. touch wires of speaker to a aa battery.Be sure wies are disconnected from main board. Speaker make no sound then replace them . If speakers pop then replace main board. or board that has audio amp ic on it.

Hi I just bought a brand new 2010 Ford Fiesta Zetec and I am having problems with the ipod connection via the usb, It all displays correctly, it shows the name of the song and how long the song has been...


You need an AUX cable in addition to the iPod USB cable. Use both cables, and you will get sound :)

How do i connect an aux cord to my head unit


You can go to radio shack and grab a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. make sure that is male -to - male. Some decks are equipped with an AUX IN in the front and some in the back and then some have both. This wire will resemble the same input end of an earphone plug. Once you have your device plugged in then just press the SRC button on your deck till it says AUX, AUX IN, or Audio. Let me know if this helps

Can I connect my pc to a lifestyle 28 system


If you want to connect your PC's audio output to the Bose Lifestyle system, simply get a cable with 3.5mm stereo male plug on one end, and dual RCA male plugs on the other end. The 3.5mm side will plug in to your PC's LINE OUT jack. The two RCA male connectors will plug in to the Bose AUX IN jacks. On the Bose console (or the remote control) select AUX as the audio source. Your PC's sound will play through the Bose Lifestyle system.

For persons having a large library of MP3 music files on their PC, this is a great way to listen to the music on your hard disk.

I have F&D home theatre i want to connect it to laptop


go to radio shack or walmart . get a cable that has an 1/8th inch stereo plug on one end and two (male) rca plugs on the other end.
make sure your volume is not all the way up on either the computer or the stereo.
plug the 1/8 inch plug into your "speaker or headphone" jack on the laptop.
plug the red and white (male) rca plugs into the auxilary or cd "IN" on the home theatre.
Power up the stereo, make your source on the home theatre the Auxilary or CD, whichever you used to plug the RCA's into.
now you should hear anything from the laptop through the home theatre.

Receiving tv analog audio.


Based on the description provided, you seem to be on the right track.

Be sure to select the appropriate "source" on the receiver using the remote (or front panel). The AV connection on the back of the receiver is typically labeled (i.e. Video 1, AUX, VCR... or similar). If there's only one unlabeled input, choose something that looks like "AUX IN" from the menu.

Also, make sure that you connected the cables to the TV via the "Audio Out", not the "Audio In" ports.

If these are too obvious and you have already done this, please provide additional information.

Trying to sort aux-in


Hi,
as you do not mention the model I have to guess that your player has a aux-in on phono (or RCA) jack. If you want to plug the iPod just buy a "Twin phono to 3.5mm stereo jack cable".
You can find in many superstores or Maplin.
