Hi twelvetwelve

Are you able to get access to the rear of the socket and use a small screwdriver to push out the parts of the plug that have come adrift inside the socket? You may have to actually remove the socket from its PCB to get access. If you cannot remove the offending parts, then you may have to replace the socket. There is not alot more that you can do unfortunatly.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

SOURCE: Hi,im looking for a repair

There appears to be no service manual or repair manual for this device. I have looked long and hard for it and there is nothing like this out there.

Have you attempted to contact Philips to see if they have any resources? What part of the unit are you trying to repair exactly, maybe I can give you some insight on how to do it..


Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or concerns, just reply to my answer here and I will be right back with you.

The switch between the speakers and the headphones is controlled by a small mechanical switch from the headphones socket. To have them both active all you need to do is to open the receiver and rewire the socket, bypassing the switch - an easy 15 minute job if you know what you're doing. But you need some experience in electronics to do it so it will be better for you to take it to your local repair shop - they shouldn't be asking you more than $75 for that.

This could be due to a faulty speaker relay (if your unit uses one). Normally, the unit will "wait" a couple of seconds after you turn the unit on. Then you will hear a "click" and the sound will begin coming through the speakers. If the relay is faulty, it would cause the problem you describe.

Can you hear sound via the headphone socket? If you cannot then the main amp has failed. If you can hear the sound, then the headphone socket could be faulty.

How to connect philips shd8900 HiFi wireless headphones to an 5.1 amplifier


Look at the manual.

http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/s/shd8900_10/shd8900_10_dfu_eng.pdf

It only accepts stereo input. Your unnamed 5.1 system will determine what it has for headphone or Line Level stereo outputs.

I just got a multimedia surround system with subwoofer.Spa7650/05, 180w.The subwoofer has three audio connections,front,centre and rear,My tv only has an audio coaxial.I can't connect it.What adapter...


Hello,
Firs of all lets get agree on something..The subwoofer has three audio connections for "output " to :front,centre and rear speakers...these are not for "input"..Your powered SUB provides necessary signal for other spekers..
You can connect TV audio coaxial to SUB input with a RCA cable.....if your SUB does not have "RCA input " probably it should have "3,5mm Haedphone female Jack"..
if this is the case you need to buy a cable ; one end 3,5mm MALE headphone jack and the other end 2xRCA stereo (or 1x RCA for mono or you may need "Y cable " ) to be connected to your TV...
And you need to connect front,centre and rear speakers to your SUB as well...
Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up
for Helping out the Community :)

Hope this helps!

It turns on,everything works normal and sound even comes out of the headphone jack.but there is no signal coming out of the speaker jacks.no sound or test tone


Hi depending on the design some receivers , when you plug in headphones, speaker sound is disconnected by the headphone socket so it could be faulty, or there may be a separate switch to switch of the speakers, (while using headphones) if so that switch could be suspect. I dont think the amplifier part of the receiver is at fault as you say you can hear sound at the headphones. It is not impossible though that a fuse has blown inside the amp, If you unplug from mains and look inside you may spot a blown fuse , (only replace with one of the same rating).
Hope this helps

Stereo receiver: headphones work but speakers don't


This could be either a fault on the headphone socket itself, or on a speaker switch. It depends on how the insertion of the jack plug into the socket affected the sound before the fault. If for example the sound was cut off from the speakers, then it's likely the fault is the socket itself.
On the other hand if you have to press a button to switch the speakers off the fault will be connected with the that button.

Marshall mg15cd practice amp sound ok through headphones but does not come from main speaker when h/phone lead is removed


Hi davyboy5

Sounds like the speaker has blown or maybe a wire has come off. Sometimes the headphone socket can go faulty also. Do you have nyway of testing the speaker?

Can get mini hifi system to work with tv and dvd player. How do I connect them?


To be honest mini hifi`s arent the best to be using as speakers for your tv.
But you connect them using RCA phono cables.
Its a lead with a white and red connector on each end.
Lokk up RCA phono cable and you`ll understand what i mean.
You plug that into your tv then to hifi,
