No output from R surround speaker in Harman Kardon AVR 210

When running the tone test there is a very faint trace of sound from the R surround. I boosted the output to +10 dB (on the R surround) and there was a slightly louder but distorted tone but it really couldn't be heard unless you had your ear right against the speaker. This was the same situation for every mode and source.

Possibly unrelated to this is an audible hum from the unit when it is first turned on for about a minute. I presume something is warming up, but I imagine that either way, the hum shouldn't be there.

The amp that runs the R surround speaker is or has went out in the main amp! also switch speakers around to make sure that one is not blown!

Fiber Optic input


No gots. The 3485 is pre-digital stereo-only.

From the manual, page 19

"You may have observed that the HK 3485 is not equipped with digital audio inputs or surround sound decoding. If you prefer the complete home theater experience, you may wish to consider purchasing a fullfeatured Harman Kardon AVR Series audio/video receiver. However, we hope you will find that using a DVD player with the HK 3485 in smaller settings, such as a bedroom or den, surpasses the audio performance of most televisions, including those with onboard stereo speakers."

Harman Kardon AVR 500 Only works in NON-Surff mode ?


This is a good indication that the surround processing section has a problem. This can be anything from a supply voltage being missing to a defective processing IC. Without testing inside the unit, it wil be difficult to determine. With surround procesing turned off, the entire section is bypassed. This is why standard stereo mode sounds OK. The static sound is digital noise and can be poor processing or a bad D/A converter IC.

Hope this helps,
Dan

I have an Harman kardon receiver (avr 310) it only plays in left and rigth speaker with surround off . I try everything to make it work in other but it can't .


Surround only works from a surround source such as Pro Logic.
If you are useing a regular stereo source with surround off, the sound will come only from L/R speakers (and sub woofer if used)
