Hi there, RikSound1. The problem is the C657 capacitor, located on the DSP PCB. It's a 0.047 farad capacitor, 5.5V. You can either replace it yourself, or just hand the info out at your local repair centre ! It will fix the problem for sure, i have fixed that problem already. Thanks, cheebster.

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

SOURCE: humming noise

Usually Humming noises come from frequency interferance.  In this case it is being caused by your input sources.  A smiply solution is to replace the cables and or seperate the source cables away from any electircal cords or sources.

SOURCE: was using the harmon kardon avr 225 receiver and the front panel went out. .... screen display of the channel number, volume, or menu item does not work. ...

Try hooking up a yellow video wire from the back of the AVR 225 Monitor out. Should be at the end of the 7 or 8 yellow video ports on the back of the stereo. Next plug the other end into a yellow video in on a t.v. Get your remote, (Harmon/Kardon) and make sure the t.v. is on the correct video input and hit the OSD(on screen display) button on your harmon remote. There should be a setting in there that says VFD under ADVANCED menu option that allows for turning the front of your stereo lights on and off and dimming them half way also. OFF/HALF/FULL are the 3 options I believe.

If this doesnt solve it your display may have crapped out on you.

I upgraded my HK AVR 20II and ran into the same problem when I tried to hook the old unit up out in my garage.

Luckily I remember that on the rear there is a pre-out RCA port (L/R) and a Main-In port that are intended to be to/from an equalizer/amplifier. These come jumpered out of the box, but I had been using an equalizer so the jumpers were long lost.

Assuming you also have no amp/eq you are using, just connect the Pre-Out to the Main-In using a standard M/M RCA cable and you will be in business. (turn the volume down first!)

Good luck.

Most dialog sound comes from the center channel / speaker. If not working correctly, it make become difficult to hear people talking especially if there is a lot of other sound going on in movies and some music, too.

Check and adjust the volume level for the center channel or speaker. Check page 8 of the manual to learn how to use the remote to change the volume level of individual channels or speakers.

If you want, you may find it is a good idea to check page 17 to esablish correct volume levels for each channel by runnijng the set up with the microphone. This will allow the system to be "calibrated" for the room. This is a very important step in "getting the sound right".

If none of these suggestions work, you may have a problem with the center speaker itself - or with the amplifier for the center channel.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Check the speaker connections for the center channel. Page 6 shows the location on the rear of the amplifier - but check the speaker itself first as it is easier to get to and the rear of the amp is less likely to be distrubed and have a poor connection.

I have a Vizio 42' and a cable box and there's a constant humming


I think I had the same problem. This is how I fixed it.

I have my vizio 42 hooked up to a Harmon Kardon surround sound, and the digital cable box. Essentially, I can adjust the volume 3 ways - through the tv, cable box or av receiver. The humming sound happens when you have the volume maxed out on the av receiver and not the cable box.

For example, the sound level on my Harmon Kardon goes from -10 (lowest) to 10 (loudest), with 0 being the middle ground. The buzzing was happening when the Harmon Kardon was set to 10, and I was using the cable box volume to adjust the sound. To fix it, I turned down the volume on my receiver to 0, which may be about 50% max volume of the receiver. Then, I switched devices and used the volume on my cable box. This got rid of the static I was getting. Hope that helps.

My harmon/kardon speakers do not work


You seem to have uninstalled the driver for your soundcard, Identify the soundcard and find the drivers and install it back (Easier option is to get in touch with your hardware manufacturer) - Alternately : you can do a system restore to a date when it was working well.
