Philips stereo stopped working

Hi
I've had my stereo connected for 1.5 yrs now (since I bought it) and had no problems. However one fine day it just decided to stop working i.e. the lights normally displaying a 'welcome' message on the set wont even turn on.

I checked the AC power cord and tried using other power outlets and don't believe this is the problem as I hear the speakers making a slight connection noise when I turn on the power switch.

As such I think it can only be the 15 pin D-sub cable or the stereo itself that is faulty. Can you suggest anything else or how to fix it?

(FYI - I bought the unit in Singapore but am using it in London now)

Much appreciated
CP

Hi,
You will not get anything to do like that sir,
But you can do one thing, thats you can tap the wire of speakers to get a connections extra to join the speaker separately,
but here one drawback is there when you do like that the company people wont provide the warranty just keep in mind, because here there is a physical damage, for physical damage no company provide the warranty.

fechegaray,

if you do a search on HTS3450 (same unit) you will find a thread with similar problems. My problem was similar and today I fixed it by changing 2 capacitors in the unit.

SOURCE: My philips hts3372d wont turn

Hi, this is likely because of Bridge problem in power section in the player, thats why its not turn on. There is diode issue in the power section its called bridge rectifier, so please check with this. It can also be as a result of a burnt fuse that needs to be replaced....

SOURCE: cannot get surround sound to work with Philips hts3106/f7 andonic tcp50g25. It works fine for Blue ray via the hdmi out of philips dvd/receiver, but not for xbox or cable etc (only works in stereo).

i have the same system. all you have to do is when you connect your xbox 360, press the surround button on the remote and then use the arrow buttons to change it to dolby music pro2 or multi channel audio. same goes with any device you connect. hope it helps. In my case the xbox is connected to the Tv via HDMI and bluray player is connected to xbox via compoent cable

How do i repair low audio on my philips soundbar hts8100/37. All connections are correct. I have to turn sound bar up to max volume to hear it. The problem is intermittent. Could it be a software problem.


My HTS8100 2 yrs ago stopped working properly, sound was on its max and little was heard. Well after searching for solutions and took it for repair which was a waste, my brother came from Australia for a holiday who is a technician and fixed it for me. The problem is in the subwoofer, I am uploading a photo where this part is , STRX6759 SANKEN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT STRX6759. Its behind that capasitor. When I changed it the sound worked. Hope you will find it useful.

Just bought a Philips home theatre system HTS3544 low sound?


You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.

I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.

My mom just bought this philips sound system and the subwoofer is not producing any sound. The other speakers work just fine but the sub woofer does not work. I was wondering if their was any call backs or...


Press the surround button on the Philips remote to see if the subwoofer will begin producing noise - the surround button switches the mode from simple stereo to full surround. I would test the surround button while watching a DVD, because not every tv channel is going to even produce surround effects. Good luck!
