Question about Philips FWC550 Shelf System
I have a Phillips FWC550 Shelf Unit that will immediately go to EcoPower mode after I turn it on. This happened after I plugged about 6 speakers and a sub-woofer into it. It all worked until I turned the volume way up and it just shut off. Any help would be appreciated.
The unit is in "protect" mode. Basically a problem is detected in the last output stage of the amplifier section and the unit shuts down to prevent further damage. I suspect that you connected too many speakers to the system. The impedence load was too low for the amp section to handle and one or more output transistors have failed. This should be a straightforward repair for any local repair shop. Figure on $20-$40 for parts plus the local labor rate for the repair. I am not familiar with your specific model, but these shelf units are all similar in design. I will try to locate the service manual for this one to get you more details.
