Troubleshooting/Need manual/ Need remote/Hook up problems
I am having trouble getting the speakers to work. The receiver worked in a bench test, but when installed in my school bus with New speakers/no sound. I drive a school bus, and had another stereo previously, and worked fine. I have no idea how to program or de-program . I cannot find a manual, for my Jensen MP-5010K CD Player, nor a remote. Can you please help me?

There are many reasons this may happen, but without having the unit on the bench, it will be hard to tell. It may be oscillating, which would make that sound. I worked as a Technical Support Specialist for Harman Kardon. If you are interested in repairing your HK, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.
1) Wherever you get sound, hook up each speaker in turn to validate they are working. If you have another, known working system to do this with, even better.
2) While testing your speakers on the known good system, once a speaker has been proven working, validate that your sound source (and cable) is working by using it as a source once everything else has been validated.
3) Now that you've isolated and proven everything but the receiver, put the receiver in stereo mode and try it out as a simple left/right amp. Once you get this far you will be able to do the surround stuff, but only with a surround encoded (ex: AC3) data stream.
There is a reset on the speaker output located in the manual. Perhaps your speaker impedance is above the receivers digital tolerance. Bench test the speakers with other in place of the working site. Most of all situations are oversights or happenings when closing up the job site.
switch the speaker connectors and see if the ones that work on the right work on the left. if they do then your amp is ok and the problem is either the wiring for the right side or the right side speakers. If the speakers don't work when you try this swap, then you have a bad channel onn your amp and will need a bench mechanic to fix it, (if you could find one). also make sure that you have a signal to both the right and the left, this can be tested by again doing a swap, take the left feed and put it in the side that is now working and if you hear sound then the inpurs are ok

Yes, there are two ways to check this, either disconnect all the speakers at the speakers or do the same at the receiver. I would start at the receiver, this is the most common problem of all AV users. Disconnect all speakers (with the receiver off) then turn it on. If it does not go into protection it is either a wire or a speaker, the best way to troubleshoot this is to reconnect each speaker one by one making sure you don't have any excess braid hanging over the pins then turn on the receiver. repeat until the unit goes into protection or, you've solved the problem. If you find a speaker with a problem, if possible replace the speaker with a known working speaker and test again. If it still goes into protection, run a new speaker wire and test again. At this point if it is still going into protection, you may need to get it to a repair house or AV store, have them bench test the unit for you first, then if needed, send it out for repair. If you need any help at all during this, post a comment and I will help some more.
Test the speakers on a bench if possible with a different receiver and some new wire. Or if you have a multimeter check the impedance, should be 8ohms if it's got a short, it will read 1..... or ....1 If the speaker wire when connected to the outdoor speaker is not siliconed, it acts as a wic and will oxidize the wiring and cause a short. do you have a separate volume control for them? and is that volume control indoor or outdoor? is it connected to a receiver or amplifier? The fastest test though would be to hook up the rock spkrs directly to another unit. If you still have trouble, reply and I will help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps
Sounds like they centre has configured your speakers to "none". You need to hook it up to a tV or monitor and go through the menu to "speaker settings" and make sure you select either "sml" or "lrg" for the speaker type. Also ensure on the LFE settings that you select either "swoofr" or "both."
The easiest way is to hook up your DVD/VCR combo directly to the back of your Sharp LCD TV, then run a component audio output from the TV to the audio input in the back of the receiver. Make sure you hook up your front, center and rear speakers correctly to the receiver, then go through with the speaker calibration steps - per manual, then it should work with no problem. Good luck!
