SOURCE: No Sound from Turntable

It definitely has to go through a preamp (a PHONO preamp that is...) something like this: http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html

Check the fuses - there may be one inside the box as well. May also be a bad transformer. You can get a multi-meter at Home Depot and lookup how to check the power at the transformer.

Magnetic phono cartridges like the one on your pioneer has an output of about .005 Volts, the standard inputs are looking for 1 to 2 volts for fulol out put, the phono preamp will step up the output voltage to 1 volt so you can play it thru a non phono input like Aux, tape or tuner.

Radio shack sells cheap ones and you will hear what you pay for.

I sell turntables and audio gear, check out www.soundsciencecat.com

Good Luck,

SOURCE: can I conect harman Kardon avr 230 to apple tv

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.

WHERE DO I PLUG MY TURNTABLE INTO THE AVR 140


Phono inputs. Hopefully your receiver has them. If not, then try your aux inputs and hope that you do not have a magnetic cartridge. If you have the latter you will need to purchase a preamp and then feed its output into the receiver input.

How can I connect a Thorens 145 turntable to it?


Your Harman Kardon AVR 85 doesn't have "phono" inputs. That means that you can not connect a turntable to it directly. You will need a "phono preamp" to amplify the very tiny signal from the phono cart enough for the HK receiver to play it. Something like this:

PYLE PRO PP444 Ultra Compact Phono Turntable Preamp

will do it. There are certainly better ones, like:

My receiver works fine when I plug my iPod into it, but when I plug my turntable in I can't get any sound. Any idea?


The phono cartridge on your turntable puts out a much lower level signal than your iPod. Back when turntables were popular, all receivers had a special phono input to take care of that. Your modern HK receiver does not have a phono input, so you need to get an external phono preamp. Plug the turntable outputs into the phono preamp inputs, then plug the phono preamp outputs into one of the audio inputs on the HK, like where you connected the iPod.

I need the whole printed circuit board of the power transistors for my AVR 200 Harman Kardon receiver ? Any available ?


Not unless you can find them second-hand somewhere. Harman-Kardon doesn't supply boards as replacement parts.

How do I hook up a turntable to a Harmon Kardon AVR receiver? Can't find correct inputs. Thanks


A 'generic' turntable and a 'generic' HK AVR?

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection AND your TT doesn't have a self-contained preamp you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

I want to connect my old Sony turntable to my Harmon Kardon AVR130 but whatever I do the volume is very low and I cannot get it working. Any idea how to solve this issue?


If your turntable is old, it probably does not have a built in amplifier. You might want to purchase a pre-amp to boost the signal a bit before it goes into the receiver.

Harmon Kardon AVR 235 no sound


Ensure that your speakers are connected to the terminals that you have your speaker selector switch turned to.
Then check that you have your device, whether it be a CD or DVD player, or turntable, plugged into the correct input and that you also have the correct input selected on the receiver.

Harmon kardon 745 displays "unlock" no sound for tv or movies


I also had this UNLOCK message on my Harman Cardon AVR 130.
The reason for this error was - in a hurry I've plugged the optical input into optical OUT! Double check that your connections in the back are correct and hopefully it fixes your problem.

Cheers,

AVR 132 low sound out put


Google the Samsung codes for your particular model. I did the same thing with one of my Remotes. As for the sound for your AVR. The speaker system on the laptop are not all that good. Click the little speaker icon and try to adjust the sound on your laptop.
