AVR 1700 not recognizing video from composite video input.

Recently purchased a Harmon Kardon AVR 1700 and really like the sound and the system. It's lived up to my expectations, though I have run into an issue. When connecting external sources via composite video input (and audio), sound comes through the AVR without issue however, video will not display. While all HDMI inputs work without issue, I need at least 1 Composite or Component video input for my daughters video game (Wii). Settings: - AVR HDMI Out to Samsung PN55 TV - Device A/V Out to AVR 1700 Comp. Vid 1/Ana. Aud. 1 I have tried using both Comp. Vid 1 and 2 as well as Ana. Aud. 1 and 2. I have tried assigning all of the sources (except TV and Network) to these input with no luck. I also tried all of the above using A Toshiba DVD player with no luck. Connecting the game or Toshiba DVD player directly to the TV Composite In works as expected. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as I really like the sound and ease of use of the AVR 1700, and really don't want to exchange it for another.

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.

The inputs may be assignable on the Harman Kardon. Make sure you have selected the proper analog or digital input type for the cable you are using. For more information, or should you have further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly through the website. Thank you.

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.


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.

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,
Sergey
