Question about Harman Kardon Harman/Kardon AVR 1700

1 Answer

My Cox HD/DVR controller will turn off but will not turn on my new HKAVR1700 using the AUX button on the Cox supplied URC-8820-Cisco remote.

I've used all six Cox supplied code numbers. I need to continue use of the Cox remote to still have control and access to my DVR in the Cable Box. Any suggestions? Could the 1700 I just purchased be defective? The 1700 turns on and off fine with the HK remote?

This is a documented problem with the Harmon/Kardon AVR-1700 and the Cox remote. Here's how I solved it. On the HK1700, go to System Settings and turn on HDMI Link. This will allow your TV (if it has the feature) to put the HK in standby mode when you power down the TV. Go to your setting on your TV and turn on HDMI link, or equivalent. I have a Sony TV and the setting is called "Control For HDMI." Then, use code 0110 for your Cox remote. This code will only turn on the HK, not turn it off. BUT, the HDMI Link should put the HK into standby.

SOURCE: Center Speaker sound just not right

If the optical cable was bad, the sound would be distorted period. The optical cable (whether coax or fiber) just simply carries the coded audio to the receiver which in turn decodes it. I have never heard of a signal just screwing up the center channel, and I've been at this better than 30 years. Not to say it's impossible, but very unlikely.

Did you try swapping speakers? Move the left one to the center and the center to the left. Does the center remain "distorted"? Does the left become "distorted"? If the center remains distorted, the receiver's center channel has something wrong with it. If the left is distorted, the speaker has a problem.

For the future. it is un-neceaasy to purchase expensive cables. In fact it could make things worse. The claim to fame of most expensive cable manufacturers is the gold plating on the connectors. Unless the bioth sides have gold plating (receiver, cable box) this actually creates a capacitive reactance between the different metal types. FYI-capacitive and inductive capacitances are the basis for designeing cross-overs, filters, etc. So basically, an undesired filtering effect is created. This applies to speaker cables, audio, video, etc....

SOURCE: my harmon kardon hk 3475 has very poor sound,

Poor sound or low volume?

Sudden onset or always like this?

When you say this, "if i hook up through the line input it sounds ok ", what exactly do you mean? What alternatives are you using to Line Level inputs. All inputs except Phono are Line Level.

How does FM sound?

How is the MP3 player different than anything else, hook-up-wise? Do you have it jacked into the Main In? That would bypass all signal processing and selection in the receiver.

There should be jumpers between Pre Out and Main In. Are they there when you DON'T have the MP3 player plugged in there? If not, install a short pair of RCA cables between them.

Describe what is hooked to what in detail. Have you checked to make sure the Mute and Tape Monitor (T-Mon) are NOT active?

SOURCE: my HK 3380 doesn`t turn on...

If the display does not turn on, then you have a power problem. The unit is not completely turning on. Since you opened up the unit, give it a sniff test to see if there is any burnt odor inside the unit. Check the fuses also. Have a look at the transformer board. It may have several fusible resistors sitting high on the board. If they burn open, there is no power to the display/cpu board.

SOURCE: I have a avr 520

Hello,

I'm sorry to say this, but unfortunately, there is no other code that will work with the remote. If it was going to work, it would have worked with the code that came with the remote. Since the code that came with the remote does not work with it, then I don't think there is any other code that will work for the unit.

Take care.

SOURCE: I have an HK AVR

Obviously you removed (or disturbed) something that was really necessary to the DVD's digital audio path. "Doesn't work" is pretty non-specific.

Do a web search for "HK AVR 355 manual" and download it. Then read the part about assigning digital audio sources and speaker configuration setup.

Look at the Troubleshooting Guide part that mentions the Channel Indicator Display (page 33).

My pause button does not work on live tv. It will pause on DVR shows.


I have seen freeze frame but I do not have a clue as how to stop a live tv show, that is saying everything stops on the show until you release it. Some TVs can buffer the show but then it is no longer live. That is what the DVR is for.

Top and bottom of the screen are cut off


That set has an aspect ratio of 4:3. The problem is that what you are sending to it is 16:9 So you are sending an hd signal to a non HD television. The tuner is NTSC which is not HD. Theres not much that you can do about this.
