Hello,

I had connect the sr5400 to my computer by digital 6, set audio on auto. Connect BW speakers to left and right, thgreu a subwoofer of fidelety(pasive). Alsso connect a centre speaker. When the sound is full of action the reciever stops the sound and givers protection on his screen. I had the sound on -15db, far from the max. So far as i know, the digital signal is not adjustable to pull somthing down. Can you advice me to solve this problem.

The amplifier is being overdriven or components of the output stage are breaking down due to earlier overdriving.

If you try and unplug it at least 12 to 24 hours and it does the same thing, then its time to take it in to the shop.

Check the speakers impedance. it should be greater then 6ohm otherwise you overload the system. Also, if the speaker sytem is rated (in Watts) below the amplifier's power it overloads the amp at higher volumes.

My teac ag-790a 'protect' error message on display. When I brought it to the audio shop for repair it worked fine; at home again the same problem? What is the problem? Tx.


Hello
Check the putput wirings to speakers. If any of them has short circuit, the set will go to protection mode. You can understand it well, as it did worked fine at the repair shope. The set has no fault at all, but the wirings, connects to it have.
Just power ON the set at your home, without connection any output or input to it. See, it will not show any protection mode display. Switch it OFF. Connect the output to speakers, one at a time, and switch ON the set. Just do it for all other speakers. This way, you can find out, which speaker line causes the set to go to protection mode. Fine out the reason.
Never connect any input to the system, until works fine with out showing any protection display.
I helped you somewhat fine, I assumes.
Ok.

Can I connect 4 ohms speakers on the AVR 230? Thanks


Hello
Output impedence of 95% of Herman Kardon sets are desighed for 6 Ohms speaker. There is an output speaker sensor circutary it it which sense the impedence of the connected speaker. it is a built in feedback circuit and is ment for protection for both speakers and power amplifier section of the amp. If you connect a 4 Ohms speaker, the set will sense it and there is a chance to get it tripped as you increase the volume. Just connect and check. Advance the volume of the set very gently. If tripping occurs or it just cut off as soon as switch ON, never connect it again. OK.

configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

No sound back two speakers


After using the method of last resort (RTFM) I discovered that Yamaha 7.1 amps assign an order of priority to the speakers. The surround speakers have higher priority than the surround-back speakers. I had connected the rear speakers (in a 5.1 configuration) to the surround-back speaker terminals and since nothing was connected to the surround terminals the E-6 error happed on auto-setup.

I eventually fixed this by connecting the rear speakers to the Surround L/R terminals and then, via the manual setup menu, set rear surround = NONE. This causes the amp to route the rear-surround signals to the Surround L/R terminals. The auto-configure then completed successfully.

Trying to reconnect a set of Harman Kardon candlestick computer speakers to a Dell Dimension E520 computer. I got three plugs and dell has 6 holes...what the heck goes where? Nothing I seem to try works...


Hi rjlevesque

For the speakers, you need only connect to the GREEN jack at the back of your computer. It's OK to leave the others blank.

Your two HK speakers will, with one wire, connect to each other and, w/ another wire (usually having a GREEN connector on the end), connect to the computer.

I'm not sure what the 3rd wire is unless it's (1) the power connector or (2) for connecting to a sub-woofer.

Does the speaker set include a sub-woofer? Or does it include a "surround sound" or 3rd speaker?

You can find pics & symbols (the symbols are helpful if your sound card jacks are not color-coded) for (3) of the most common audio connections HERE.

Usually the color of the connector on the wire is matched to the sound card jack w/ the same color. (green to green; pink to pink; blue to blue).

green = speakers
pink = mic
blue = line in

Make sure you are connecting to the active sound connectors - the ones you used b4 the HK speakers.

If you have "integrated audio" (audio that is built into the motherboard) and you have an audio expansion card installed on the computer as well, one may be disabled or not selected in your computer's audio configuration.

If that's the case (that you have two sets of audio jacks to choose from), try connecting the speaker wire from the HK speakers 1st to the green jack (or the jack marked w/ the symbol of a speaker) at the bottom of your computer. (There'll only audio jacks here if there is an audio expansion card installed on your computer.)

If that is the case, there'll be other (usually) colored jacks running horizontally next to the speakers jack.

If you still have no sound, connect the speaker wire to the GREEN jack that is (usually on Dells) up by your PS2 (round - one purple and one green) keyboard and mouse connectors (also at the back of your computer). The other jacks in that set (of audio jacks) will be situated vertical to one another and on the left-most side at the back of your computer.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you
BJ
