You can remove the grill in front of the speakers by using 2 mini mini screw driver one to pry it out little by little while the other to hold it from going back in .There are noscrews holding the grill.They are held by 4 clamps which are the grill inner end bend abit out thats all.
So if you pry it will give way not to worry the grill is made of a hard aluminium material it just needs care in order not to scratch the paint surface and aluminium ring around it,use a soft cloth to protect the ring when prying.Remember this aluminium ring wont come out its only the grey grill that will.
This thing is worth saving because it sounds great even after speaker repair.Yes where i am in Idonesia there are people who are profesionals at repairing speakers that are torn out like our harman.(torn due to age around the speaker cone).i paid 15 usd to get the both of them repaired and its the best 15 dollars i have ever spent.Cause now it could not have sounded any newer the bass is back the balance is pure harman again
If I understand you correctly the Harman Kardon does not supply the output video and usb ports. Since this is a go and play they pobably felt it was not needed. to impliment these changes would require a complete design change.
I had the same problem with my unit (The Harmon Kardon Play & Go was turning off after 10 minutes. It was very frustrating.). It ended up that my auxiliary input jack was not plugged in all the way, and only one channel was being played. Apparently, the unit detects whether or not sound is being played, and it turns off after a certain amount of time if no sound is detected. Also, apparently, that detection circuitry is only on one channel -- not both. So if you don't have the input wire plugged in all the way, the unit does not detect sound properly.
To solve the problem, make sure that the input wire is plugged in ALL the way. :)
Other than this little issue, this unit is fantastic! Highly recommended.

the ipod of the 4th generation does only charge in USB mode and the Harman & kardon speaker only supports I link charge mode(fire wire 1394) so i bought an awsome sounding machine wich does not charge my ipod nano.
however i must say that i have a solution, when you put the USB cable in the back of the H&K, you can charge the nano with a charging device of an ipod.
Initially, pls try cleaning the battery terminals. In some instances, it may be necessary to scrape them to remove corrosion. Still there are times they may have to be bent or stretched to ensure that they provide more pressure to the batteries. Alternately, pls try to confirm that the AC adapter is working by checking for the presence of voltage on the plug/connector with the use of a voltmeter.
Should the above not address your concern, then it is most likely that the problem is internal electronics and the unit is simply going into protective mode. You then have a choice of performing a DIY (do-it-yourself) or seeking the services of a qualified professional.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
There was a black wire included (with a metal "cap" to insert in the FM center connector) that served as the FM antenna, but in a pinch any wire can do, preferably about 33" long and with the insulation stripped from the last inch or so (or get creative and sand the last inch of varnish off a properly sized untwisted clothes hanger and gently bend to suit). Bare stranded wire should be twisted or folded until it's thick enough to firmly fit the middle "hole" of the FM antenna connector. Be careful that no strands of wire short to the metal ground "ring" surrounding the hole or the antenna won't work (although it won't burn out your amp like shorting the speaker wires would, it just won't work). Orient the wire horizontally or vertically for best reception. This unit also doesn't pick up FM very well if you're in a steel-framed building or away from windows in the general direction of the local transmitters, so moving the unit closer to a window may help dramatically. In bad reception areas you can get an external FM "rabbit ears" type antenna but you'll need the "European" style of 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer to plug it into the unit's FM connector (one that has a bigger central connector "plug" than the usual US units). Some cable systems also still support FM, if yours does, a VHF/UHF/FM signal splitter and either the above mentioned transformer attached to flat 300 ohm cable or a plain "European" style connector attached to the end of the 75 ohm round black cable will do the trick. Some Radio Shacks have them. Good luck!
