AVR 5000 switch backs into stand-by / turns off

Hi!

I have a problem with my H/K AVR 5000 build in 2001: It suddenly switches back into standby without any reason. This usually happens approx 2 min after I have switched it on, but could be also after a few hours. After this it fails to get switched on again and immediately jumps back into standby.

There is a good chance that it works again the next day, but this is not for sure. This behaviour is independent from the source or volume (I believe). I already un- and replugged all wires including those of the loudspeakers. Even a reset of the amp did not help.

My first guess was that the protection curcuit is being triggered, however the standby LEDs remains orange and does no turn red as it should be in this case according to the manual.

Perhaps it is worth to mention that on very rare occasions the amp turns up the volume by itself at least I did not press any button on the remote control. This started a few years ago, but I could live with that.

Any ideas or experience with other AVR models?

Many thanks in advance,
Manfred

Problem is a bad relay. Temporary solution is to clean the contacts. Permanent solution is replacement.

If you are concerned about humidity and switches, spray them with DeOxit. You can get it at Radio Shack.

It may be your unit is going into protect mode because of a problem in the power amp stage of your amp. If so, then it is time to see a repair shop. Good luck.

Hi snark63

Ypou have an intermittent problem that sounds to be heat related... the more work the amp does, the more heat generated by the output stages. This will be aggravating some poor solder joints that are cracked or dry. The unit needs some repair work done in these areas. If you have good experience with a soldering iron, the cure for this is to resolder the power stages of the unit, or any other solder joints that look to be failing.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

HOW TO RESET HARMAN KARDON AVR70


Hi, Try this. Hope this helps and I have the link here to the manual.
Processor Reset
If the AVr behaves erratically after a power surge, first turn off the front-panel
main
power switch and unplug the Ac power cord for at least 3 minutes. plug the cord back
in and turn the AVr on. If this procedure doesn't help, reset the AVr's processor as
described below.
note: resetting the processor will erase all user configurations, including speaker and
level settings, and tuner presets. After a reset, reenter all of these settings from your
notes in the Appendix worksheets.

To reset the AVR's processor:

1. press the front-panel Standby/on switch to place the unit in the Standby mode (the
Standby Indicator led will turn amber).
2. press and hold the front-panel Standby and memory/folder buttons until the reSet
message appears on the front-panel message display.
3. press the memory/folder button again to reset the AVr's processor.
If the AVr does not function correctly after a processor reset, contact an authorized
harman
kardon service center for assistance.
to locate an authorized service center,
visit our web site at www.harmankardon.com.

Avr 235 power at standby mode but sometime unable to power up, please help. A lot of thanks.


Open the unit and measure the voltage across the reset microswitch on the transformer board (with the unit in standby). It should be a hi signal, over 3 volts. If it is low, below 1 volt (when you can't turn it on) it is sending a constant reset signal to the cpu. Remove the switch and try again. If the problem goes away, the switch was bad. Its a service switch so you don't have to replace it.

Has power but keeps switching to standby


Disconnect all speakers at the receiver and turn it back on, if it stays on post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot further. If it still cuts out, it needs to go to service for repair. Hope this helps.

Denon avr-2106 problem!!!


You're drawing too much power from it. Sounds like maybe your sub is hooked up wrong, double check that.

Receiver shuts down and will not turn back on untill you unplug and plug back in


Nope. sorry to burst your bubble but your problem is pretty common on this unit. Its bad capacitors in the power supply and probably not worth repairing in a repair shop. since this is a solid state reciver, there are no user replaceable parts inside.

No Power


I mwas gonna suggest that you need the speakers attached but you stated later that it did the same thing with the speakers attached. The unit switching off after it checks its self is NOT a normal thing. TAKE IT BACK BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!! GOOD lUCK
