Question about Harman Kardon AVR 230 6.1 Channels Receiver
3-28-07 After coming home from a trip back east, I turned the AVR 230 on and no sound would out of any of the six speakers. The system has worked great for three years so I thought that maybe the little wife had been experimenting with the remotes so I made sure everything was as it should be. Still, no sound. I tried resetting the processer by holding the mode button in for three seconds but no luck. Please Help. Thanks, Moondawg

I got this from the manual page 43.
Resetting the Remote Memory
As you add components to your home-theater
system, occasionally you may wish to totally
reprogram the remote control without the confusion
of any commands, macros or ”Punch-
Through“ programming that you may have done.
To do this, it is possible to reset the remote to the
original factory defaults and command codes by
following these steps. Note, however, that once
the remote is reset, all commands or codes that
you have entered will be erased and will need to
1. Press any of the Input Selector buttons 4
and the ”O“ button Hat the same time until
the Program/SPL Indicator 2begins to flash
2. Press the ”3“ button Hthree times.
3. The red LED under the Input Selector4
will go out and the Program/SPL Indicator
2will stop flashing and turn green.
4. The Program/SPL Indicator 2will remain
green until the remote is reset. Note that this may
take a while, depending on how many commands
are in the memory and need to be erased.
5. When the Program/SPL Indicator 2goes
out, the remote has been reset to the factory settings.

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.

Testimonial: "cheers, have a good year."
There is an internal reset switch mounted on the transformer board. Open the unit, look at the boards attached to the transformer, the pushbutton is facing up. Measure the voltage on the 2 pins of the switch. If it is a logic low, the switch is partially shorted. Replace the switch or just cut the jumper wire just below thw switch. When this switch fails, it constantly resets the receiver and stops it from powering up. It does not fix a protection mode problem.
