Hopefully your cds and dvds don't have any fingerprints on them. The laser eventually fails. Sometimes it is from aging solder joints and a few very small potentiometers that get a poorer connections with time. The 2 or 4 potentiometers are for 1) tracking gain 2) voltage gain 3) tracking offset 4) focus gain These are so sensitive that if you move them you may never get it back to the correct spot ever again so mark them well. This may not fix your problem and the laser will still fail. The inside of the laser lens starts getting dark as it fails. Ordering the laser may not be cost effective and too fussy to replace.

SOURCE: I have a HK

This means it's going into protection mode. If you have speakers hooked up I would try disconnecting all the speakers and see if the problem persists. If so there is an internal problem that would need to be repaired by a professional. Being that this is only a pro logic receiver if you look on craigslist or ebay. You could most likely find a used receiver in your area for much cheaper then the cost of repair. I've seen great receivers for as little as 50-100$ on craigslist.

I have an HK AVR 355 system, that worked just fine. Yesterday I tried to hook up a new TV, and ended up taking a few cable out since they were not imoportaint any more and only used HDMI cable. Now when I...

Obviously you removed (or disturbed) something that was really necessary to the DVD's digital audio path. "Doesn't work" is pretty non-specific.

Do a web search for "HK AVR 355 manual" and download it. Then read the part about assigning digital audio sources and speaker configuration setup.

Look at the Troubleshooting Guide part that mentions the Channel Indicator Display (page 33).

It stops playing certain song after a few seconds

I am glad to HELP YOU!

If your machine, using a multimedia application, it stops suddenly to play a CERTAIN song ["it stops playing certain song after a few seconds"] that means the file [the song, I mean] is broken/damaged/corrupted. So - using other words - cannot be read by the application itself.
All you need to do is to get another file [the same song but from a DIFFERENT SOURCE] hoping the new file will be in good condition.

My best regards!
... and don't forget to RATE, please...

Songs are continueously playing backwards and won't stop.

Basically, just keep plugging it into your USB port and out again. Hope that this works. It should. Turn it on after you've unpluged it and text out to see if your songs are still playing backwards.

Bridge II only displays Album title

I had the same problem with my HK AVR 355 and The Bridge II.
Yours has entered manual mode by itself?! You think the bridge it did by itself but You did it.
I tell you how! I had the same problem but it's not problem but a lack of user's manual. In the automatic mode the searching through albums and artist on the on screen display is very slow. You are pushing and pushing and pushing the "menu" button. That was the problem!
Connect your bridge and ipod and turn on the AVR. Switch to The Bridge as input. It will say that you are in manual mode. Push the menu button on the AVR's remote for a few seconds. And it will turn back to automatic mode!!! That's all!
The real problem is neither of two manuals (The Bridge and AVR) tell any words about the function of holding down for seconds the menu button. Its function is to switch between manual and automatic mode!
