Harman kardon avr 254

You can check all your speaker wires for shorts, as well as try the reset to factory defaults procedure found in your owner's manual, but I doubt this will resolve your issue. If you require more assistance, or would like to inquire about repairing your HK, please visit my website at, and contact me there. BTW, I worked for Harman as technical support for all Harman, JBL and Infinity products. Thank you.

I have the Harman Kardon AVR 254. Just recently it stopped responding. It will cut on and the volume dial will respond but none of the front panel buttons will. Any suggestions on a fix?

There should be two fuses on the secondary board of the main power transformer. They don't look like regular fuses - they are small round can fuses. These are probably open. HK under-valued these fuses originally, and they need to be replaced with 3.15 amp.

Getting picture lines across tv that keep scrolling down like old tv's used to do. HDMI connected to cable box. Cable box to tv works fine and dvd to receiver hdmi to tv works fine no picture problems. can...

You will need to run HDMI directly from TV to Cable Box. Then run an optical or digital coaxial from your cable box to your receiver. The version of HDMI in your receiver is 1.1 or 1.2 and will not pass signal correctly. The recording industry has placed many roadblocks in front of HDMI to keep us from recording.... Go figure... That's the fix though. Hope this helps

AVR 254 with Xbox 360 - Same problem

I just recently had this problem for the second time, first time I had the unit replaced. This latest time I perfromed the firware upgrade and the issue was resolved. Follow this link
then select "Product Updates" you can download the firmware from there. Be sure to read the PDF and follow the on screen instructions exactly. This process will erase all your stting so you'll have to reconfigure all your sources and settings upon completion. Good Luck.

Harmon AVR 254 No Video, No Sound.

The reason your receiver is causing you issues is cause of a 2 time Delay fuse's on the transformer board all you have to do is to by pass them.
Check the connector on the top front of the HDMI board. at the bottom of the connector it tells you the voltage of each wire the middle one is GND. should read 1.8v and 5.6v if the 5.6v line is dead. you key's in the front panel and sometimes video and audio as well.. will also stop working. all you have to do is to by pass them.

I will be posting a video later today on how to fix this issue. Regards,
