Question about Harman Kardon Go + Play Portable Speaker System for Apple iPod - Matte Black
My Harman Kardon go + play keeps turning off and on by itself. Please help.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Initially, pls try cleaning the battery terminals. In some instances, it may be necessary to scrape them to remove corrosion. Still there are times they may have to be bent or stretched to ensure that they provide more pressure to the batteries. Alternately, pls try to confirm that the AC adapter is working by checking for the presence of voltage on the plug/connector with the use of a voltmeter.
Should the above not address your concern, then it is most likely that the problem is internal electronics and the unit is simply going into protective mode. You then have a choice of performing a DIY (do-it-yourself) or seeking the services of a qualified professional.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Often the advanced energy management circuit cuts out when on battery power and no music is present.
1. Remove batteries run on AC
2. does unit still work?
3. If so plug in Ipod normally, turn HK unit volume down then the ipod volume way up.
4 if problem not solved try using 1/8 inch aux. jack, high volume on IPOD low volume on HK.
IN general contol the volume from the HK unit. leave the ipod loud.
