Question about Harman Kardon AVR 100

1 Answer

AVR 110 The system turns on and off but no sound at all .... I did notice that it states SURR OFF, but can't find a way to turn on.... Also it says ANALOG ... but we don't even have sound from the radio either.... We have checked all connections and have had it setup for quite some time the same way... Could it be the machine itself or is there something we are not doing. Turn the unit on, L.E.D.'s light up as they should, turn on the radio, turn up the volume, made sure everything was connected, even played a multi-disc CD player through the unit.  "NO SOUND" at all. Please reply with remedy.

This could be indicative of the built-in protection circuitry kicking in to prevent further damage to the unit. It has sensed a fault and therefore shuts the unit off.

Further diagnosis/repairs of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    If the unit turns on, the light indicators/display are as supposed to be but no sound, pls check:

    • tape monitor is OFF;

    • speaker selector pressed;

    • mute is off.
    It could possibly also be a hardware fault, are considering a DIY?

    Have you tried a reset? unplug from the mains for an hour at least.

States zone 1 off on startup. cannot get any sound.

In the manual that I just uploaded on page 61 there is a big WARNING. You might have accidently adjusted the audio form zone 1 (main system audio) to turn off. use the manual I uploaded to walk you through the re-setup of zone 1. It's in 'main menu - system setup - advanced - Zone 1 Setup A'.

On this reciever you have rear surround and rear back spkrs, if your using the surr back they have to be assigned if unassigned in the settings. If using rear surr spkrs change your surr field to 5ch stereo and your rear speakers will work.
