Question about Harman Kardon AVR 500 Receiver
Sirs: Is the broke part #J32612050102? A digital volume control chip? A bad DTS? How much to fix? Can I fix myself; if so, where can I buy parts? Thanks. Chuck.
The problem is with the actual eltromechanical element on the volume control, my avr 300 does this as well and I'll let you know the secret to avoiding it. There are small indents on the volume control as you turn it, if you leave it half way between indents, it will periodically start reading volume changes, if you're lucky it will go down, if you're unlucky by the time you've noticed it act up your speakers are blown. When you change the volume, make sure the control rests in an indent and the problem will never crop up again. A simple solution if you're the only one that uses the receiver.

You need to reset the microprocessor.
Push the main power button to "off" then push and hold down the dolby pro logic and am/fm button simultaneously while pushing the power button back "on" ...should solve the problem.
Keep in mind all settings will reset to factory settings- you will have to reset your delay and speaker surround levels-also your input selections.
