Question about Philips FWC870 Shelf System

Open Question

No sound I use my unit as my sound for my PC and it sits on my home office desk. I was moving my unit so my kids would not easily reach it. While trying to plug into a surge protector strip which is behind the desk and hard to see, I was feeling around to plug. I heard a cracking sound and saw sparks. Result. The unit turns on, cd door opens but there is no sound for the tuner, cd, tape or aux. I checked all other equipment hooked up to that pwr/surge strip and everything else is fine. I tried headphones and no sound either. I read some other similar issues and they mentioned something about the sound output IC being blown. What do you think may be the problem and do you have an estimate of how much it would cost to fix. If it costs too much I would consider getting a new system.

SOURCE: Volume with Headphones

The unit probably has resistors or a limitor curcuit to limit the amount of audiop going out on the headphones. It could probably be modifyed but it would possiblt burn out the headphones as this is a 280watt peak power unit . Its there so you dont blow out your ears.you could use some wireless self powered headphones as that would solve your problem!! Good Luck

low power is just another word for standby, when doing this press the power on button again, or press something on the unit to power it up. if it still does not work you might have a power issue on the power board. call your manufacturer or ceck your manual.

SOURCE: No sound at all; system has been working great for almost 3 years

first, look for a "speaker" swich that might have accedentaly got turned off, or a Mute button that might have got turned ON. most of the fuses and such are rigged nowadays internally, so that all but a qualified service tech can't get to them. make sure of those buttons, first, then, if your not sure, take it in for service.
