    What specific problem are you having?
     Some have reported that squirting tuner cleaner into the back of the switch/volume control will clear up some intermittent conditions.  If the on/off switch on the back of the switch is defective you can jumper it to leave it on full time.

How to use hk395 subwoofer without satellite speakers


System power is controlled by a switch on the right satellite speaker ON/OFF VOLUME control, therefore you would have to connect a separate switch to control power. However, you may be able to get a satisfactory result by turning the satellite volume control completely counter clockwise and adjusting the WOOFER VOLUME control to the desired level.

I need a new HK395 Woofer Volume PCB (circuit board) for a harman/kardon


Try http://www.redplanettrading.com/search.php?mode=search&page=1. They have the HK395 model for a pretty good deal and they might be willing to cut you a deal for just the part.

No one sells the correct knob


You will have to replace the whole system. Places will not just sell a knob for one.

Speaker cable installation


1.  Check the orange multipin connector for bent or broken pins.
2.  Make you have the subwoofer plugged in to a live power outlet.
3.  Check the fuse on the circuit board inside the subwoofer.
4.  Measure the output of the subwoofer power transformer.  I think I remember it as being in the range of 12-24VAC.  Inspect the rectifier diodes for signs of overload.  measure the dc output of the diodes.  I think I remember 18VDC.  
5.  Open the right speaker and verify the on/off switch is working.
6.  New Egg sells a multitude of similar speakers in the $40 to $80 range.

Left speaker not working


Hi Dellhelp, this sounds like a defective volume switch to me. If you're handy with tools and have a soldering iron you can probably pick up a suitable replacement switch for $5 and spend 30 minutes installing it. Or for around $20 on Ebay you could buy another working unit. I wouldn't really recommend spending much time or money trying to fix them and if you do buy another set you can keep your old ones for parts :) http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?cgiurl=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2Fws%2F&fkr=1&from=R8&satitle=hk395+speakers&category0=&submitSearch=Search Let us know if you need more help and don't forget to rate the posting.
