Question about Philips FWC399 CD Shelf System

2 Answers

Cut off :|

Every now and then my C399 philips would cut off on me. It happens when I put it onto AUX (mainly thats all I use so I dont know if it does it for the others). I dont normally have it that loud but It could trip at the start or after a while and happens every now and then. I think theres something faulty inside but dont know. Once I try to turn it back on again after it trips it just trips and trips until he doesnt come back on.

Any ideas on this?

I connected an aux to it i dont know how to like put it in aux mode i cant find it

The MHC-GX9900 has several audio input ports (RCA L/R) on the back of the unit. Press the TV or Video/MD buttons on the left side of the amplifier part of the unit. Alternatively, these are accessed in turn by repeatedly pressing the Function button on the remote. The TV input is the top one of the pair of inputs. The front ports are audio out to headphones and a pair of microphone in ports.

I hope this helps.

No sound on speakers, only on earphones.

Indicates to me that the headphone socket is faulty, assuming that previous to this putting a headphone jack caused the main speakers to cut off.
Not an expensive repair.

Power cuts out

This problem happend to my sony system about a year ago. It was the amp that blew in mine because of the fan inside the system was not coming on when it should of. I found that when i had put my PC in the AUX jacks it blew the fan on me, so every time the volume got to 15 the system would just shut down and not come back on at all, or it would need time to cool down before it would start up again. Take it to a shop and get it looked at by someone that knows what there doing. Please dont try and do this yourself.

Sound cuts out

If you listen to cd's and the sound dos'ent cut out then it cant be the amp. It could be the audio cables are intermittant between the amp and the dvd playerr or they are loose or corroded a little. or ppossible the input your using is going bad on the stereo sytem but I wouldnt think that the whole system was blown if the radio and the cd plays normal.. check out the causes I listed and let us know if you need more assistance\..:)
