Question about Sony A/V Receiver

AVR25 II just shuts down

I have an older Harman/Kardon AVR25 II receiver. It powers up just fine, but within a couple minutes just shuts down. The on/off button turns red. This receiver had thie same problem while still under warranty and was repaired, but now the issue is back again. Do I have an easy fix or should I start shopping for a new receiver? Thanks.

I would recommend shopping for a new receiver. Sounds like there is a relay, capacitor, and or power supply problem that keeps causing damage to the circuits which if continues could cause speaker damage and issues with equipment that you have hooked up to it. But if you choose to have it worked on again, i recommend purchase of a UPS (uniterruptable power supply) that is capable of regulating to voltage.

Does the Harmon kardan avr25 have an hdmi output


Nope. You get one component OUTPUT (monitor) and two component INPUTS (Vid 2/DVD) but no HDMI video output.

If you can input and switch HDMI video directly at your display from your cable/SAT etc. you should be fine, just run all the audio through the AVR-25 through the coaxial/optical digital inputs, L/R analog RCA or the 5.1 direct inputs.

Voice of both left and righ speaker is not equal


Can say I've seen this on a H/K. First swap the speakers left to right and right to left if the sound is low on the same speaker its the speaker not the receiver (could have a driver out). Could also be a dirty output relay.

Is the sound good other than it being low?
Is it that way with all inputs?

The power button goes red after couple of minutes


Try disconnecting the speakers and reconnecting them one at a time. If there is a small short on a speaker wire it will cause it to click into protection.

If that is not the problem then it may be the bias rate of the amp, unfortunately that issue would render it not worth repairing since they have a high rate of failure after repair.

Harmon kardon avr 25 II


hey i also had this problem, i don't know the name of these but they are basically plugs that you have to block output from the front rear and center speakers of the white/red cables... sry for bad description but its on the left side when looking at the back of the receiver, while all of the other speaker wires should be hooked up to the right with the twisting knobs... it took me forever to find this out but yeah it was a simple fix

Your drawing to many watts from the unit and its shutting down. Make sure the -/+ are set properly for the speakers. Also the power amp inside the unit could be bad and the relay trips off. Plug straight into the wall and don't go through a powerstrip. Is anything else connected to the receiver?
