Harman kardon Audio Viseo Receiver shut down- no longer providing sound

All of a sudden our AVR shut off. We have been trying to restore sound, but are not having much success. The dell TV picks up the AVr as a source, but somehow the sound isn't making it to the speakers. any tips? we are clueless technically! Thanks!

As I understand it, these systems use a DIN plug and sometimes these DIN plugs can get damaged seperating connections inside of the plug itself, try testing these connection from the tips of each pin to the other end of the cable and see if you can find a connection for each pin. if so then you have eliminated that as the issue, also, if they are all good and you can get me a diagram of where each color goes, that would be great so I can help others with this issue in the future.

Can I conect harman Kardon avr 230 to apple tv

Yes, although it (AVR) does not support HDMI only component video.

Connect the audio to the receiver and the video directly to the TV if you have inadequate video inputs, or want to take advantage of the HDMI.

Harman kardon avr 120

Do you get an indication on the display where the point of failure might be? It would show up on the LCD speaker diagrams just before shutting off.
