Important notes for users in the
U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13
Amp plug. To change a fuse in this type of plug
proceed as follows:
1
2
Remove fuse cover and fuse.
3
Refit the fuse cover.
Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 5 Amp,
A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 5 Amp. If a plug without a fuse
is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with
the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
¶ As these colours may not correspond with the
colour markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows:0
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain
that the cord grip is clamped over the sheath
of the lead - not simply over the two wires.

Placing Center and Station
Setting up Wi-Fi connection
between Center and Station
IMPORTANT!
– Install your Center and Station near
the AC outlet and where the AC power
plug can be reached easily.
Take the following steps to optimize the
Wi-Fi connection between Center and
Station:
– Keep your Center and Station away
from the source of interference (wireless
routers, microwave ovens, DECT phones,
bluetooth devices, cordless phones,
other Wi-Fi products, etc.)
– Avoid placing your Center or Station
close to the plasma TV. It may result in
improper display on your Center’s 2-way
remote control.
– Keep Stations adequately apart or in
different angles (e.g. in different rooms
blocked by one wall). Within a distance
and angle (e.g. in the same room), your
Center’s remote control is powerful
enough to simultaneously operate
several Stations, which may also result in
improper display on the 2-way remote
control.
Mounting stand onto Station
WAS5 Station is equipped with a stand. To
mount the stand onto your Station,
1
2
Align the supplied stand to the slot at Station’s
bottom
Insert the stand into the slot firmly
Wi-Fi connection starts automatically when
you power up WAC5 Center and WAS5
Station
1
2
The first time you set up Wi-Fi connection, place
Center and Station side by side on a flat and firm
surface
First, connect the Center to power supply,
and then, connect the Station to power supply
Center/Station:
➜ The screen lights up. Auto installation/
connection starts
➜ You will enter HD (Harddisk) mode when
the installation/connection is finished
3
Relocate Center and Station as desired: plug
and stream*
● Simply unplug your Center or Station and power
them up in other rooms
➜ You will be able to stream the harddisk music
between Center and Station
Helpful hints:
– Make sure you have powered up Center before
powering up Station.
IMPORTANT!
– Avoid thick walls. Your Center and Station should
never be blocked by 2 or more walls.
– Avoid placing the sets close to large metal
objects.
– For better Wi-Fi reception, turn the Wi-Fi
antenna, or adjust the location of your Center and
Station.
– indicates maximum reception
– indicates no reception
Helpful hints:
– Once inserted, the stand is undetachable.

* Streaming is the process describing data is
pulled between places, which be multiple places.
If there is interference in the neighborhood,
the set may pause during playback or
respond slowly to your operation. In such
cases
– Use the WEP* key when connecting your Center
and Station to an existing wireless PC network. See
the manual Connect to your PC: Option 2.
– Change the operating channel of your Center
and Station when connecting them to an existing
wireless PC network. To learn about how to change
channels, see the Owner’s manual of your router
and the manual Connect to your PC: Option
2.
– If possible, change the operating channels of the
other Wi-Fi devices at your home.
– Turn the above devices in different directions to
minimize interference.

WARNING
Under no circumstances should you try to repair the system yourself, as this will
invalidate the warranty. Do not open the system as there is a risk of electric shock.
If a fault occurs, first check the points listed below before taking the system for repair. If
you are unable to remedy a problem by following these hints, consult your dealer or
Philips for help.
Problem
Solution
Wi-Fi connection:
During the first-time setup, Station’s
display shows “Searching for Center”
✔ Check you have placed the Center and Station
side by side on a flat and firm surface.
✔ Check you have connected the Center to power
supply.
✔ When adding a new station, check your center is
in Installation mode (See HD, Station
management).
✔ Turn off the wireless router nearby if there is
difficulty in connecting your Center and Station.
I get interference on my wireless (WiFi)
link between center and station.
The WACS 5 operate in the 2.4GHz radio
frequency spectrum. Many other household/IT
devices also operate in the frequency spectrum,
for example: microwave ovens, Dect phones,
Bluetooth devices like Bluetooth headphones,
computer mouse, wireless routers, cordless
phones, WiFi compatible printers, PDAs.
These devices can interfere with the WiFi link
between Center and Station, resulting in such
interference as the pause during playback , the
set’s slow response to your operation. The
severity of interference varies depending on the
extent of radiation from the device and the
strength of Wi-Fi signals in the position.

interference on your remote control:
1) interference signals from the Plasma TV screen

If you are playing the set, stop playback and take
the appropriate measures as follows:
Keep the Center or Station at least 3 meters
