Re: AVR 110 Harmon Kaedon

Looking in the manual (link below) I see that this receiver uses 8ohm speakers, check that your speakers are 8 ohms or more. I think that connecting 2 sets of speakers to the same output is the problem as when you connect speakers in parallel (i.e. just twisting both pairs of wires together) you effectively half the impedance. So if 2 sets of speakers of 8ohms are connected this way the result will be 4ohms which is too low and will cause the unit to go into standby. Try removing the additional front speakers & see if the fault persists. If it does then it is likely a fault in the wiring.

Denon AVR 1508 distortion on left channels

I have a different model, but sometimes suffer this when power outages or other strange things happen. Its usually the microprocessor getting confused and not doing its job properly, once none of the speakers came on at atll!
In the handbook, it will tell you how to do a factory reset - that always sorts mine (Same brand, Denon). Just a pain setting it all up again.
You should be able to find a PDF version of the handbook online if your's is misplaced in the house move.

Harmon kardon avr-520 keeps turning itself off

I have a avr 520 and had put it away for about 6 months to reno the theater room when it was done I hooked it all back up and it started to shut down. Not when the radio was on but when I was playing a blue ray movie after reading all the pages of info there was on this subject I went home and disconnected the speakers and sub and then played the movie with no sound for 30 minutes. Then hooked up one rear at a time let that run for 20 minutes each then the other rear. Restarted movie moved to sub then right front center then left front and it went off. Unhooked left speaker and it ran fine. ran new speaker wire to left front and it ran fine ran 2 full movies through it. The speaker wire I use is not cheap either 12 gauge 99 percent oxygen free wire. Somewhere in the reno it was snagged or pinched and was grounding out causing the unit to overheat and turn the unit off. Thanks everyone for their input that info help a lot. hopefully these helps someone

I have a active sub woofer (akari bazooka) but the only connections available are the speaker connections. The front of the sub woofer has volume adjustment. How can I connect this sub woofer to my Harman...

You can't connect the pre out of your AVR to this sub woofer. Do one thing connect the frond left/ right channel speaker "B" out of harman kardon to the sub woofers left right speaker in put. you can connect the speaker out "A" to your normal left right speakers. Remember to switch Speaker "A" and "B" in ON position in your AVR. Also do one thing go to the speaker setup of AVR and switch OFF (slelect NONE) the sub woofer.This will disconnect the sub woofer pre our and the sub frequency will mix with frond left right channels.

I've had my Denon AVR-2308CI receiver for 3 years and last week I turned it on to watch a movie and there is no sound coming from my rear speakers? I have a 5 speaker set up (3 in front and 2 in the rear)...

On the front display of the unit, you should have indicator icons that light up if a speaker is being used. Are there only 3 speakers lite up, or are there 5? As a quick check, make sure your speaker connections are secure, and then make sure your surround mode is set to a 5 channel surround mode. 5 channel Stereo is a good one to test with. Also, you can hit the "test" button to see if the speakers are connected and working, it will give a test signal out of each speaker independently. Let me know what you find, and I can answer more.

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 AVR 5

Assuming that the system is properly installed and was working ok before, the problem is usually a blown output amplifier in one channel and the receiver disconnects the speakers to avoid damaging them. In this case, professional repair is required.
