Question about Harman Kardon HK 3380 Receiver

1 Answer

Harman Kardon HK 3380 with no FM - just white noise.

Was working fine, I relocated unit and had sound from only one speaker (lead came loose from terminal) so shut unit off, reconnected and no longer have FM (AM and other inputs OK). Tried 30 minute off and the "mute" button reset while off but no luck. Fuses look fine (and the white noise volume does vary with volume control) and no bad smells or visual defects. Any ideas?

    antenna (single wire) unchanged and no damage that can be seen - unit isn't pulling even the strongest stations with or without the antenna connected - just white noise.

Check the fuses - there may be one inside the box as well. May also be a bad transformer. You can get a multi-meter at Home Depot and lookup how to check the power at the transformer.

SOURCE: no sound,no video,front panel display will display.harman kardon

Check your audio settings on the main menu of the receiver. The audio input should be set to "auto" Next, make sure you don't have the unit in "6 channel input" mode or "direct" mode. This is usually a small button on the front panel. If you check all this and you still have a problem, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot some more. Hope this helps

I believe it is actually a memory capacitor that has to be replaced. It is soldered directly into the board and requires quite a bit of know-how to replace.

Hope this helps,

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.

Will Harman Kardon HK 206 speakers work with Windows 8


I just purchased a Dell XPS 8500 with Windows 8 and decided to keep using my old Harmon Kardon HK 206 speakers because I'm quite satisfied with these speakers. When I hooked them to my new PC, Windows 8 recognized them right away. The speakers work great on my new PC. Try going to the Control Panel and see if your speakers were recognized. (On my PC they're referred to as "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). That's due to the default drivers in Windows 8. As long as you see speakers in the control panel, you should be OK. In that case you should check your connections. If you don't see speakers in the control panel, go back one screen and select add a device and let Windows 8 scan for any device that it hadn't recognized before.

HK 3380 Receiver - Power turns ON, then within a few seconds displays a PROTECT mode and immediately shuts off. I have checked speaker leads for shorting, etc. This unit was operating perfectly and then...


It seems that one (or both) of the power amps are defective. To have a quick check, take a meter, sett it on the DC voltage and measure the outputs, one by one (with no speaker attached and no signal) for the short time when the unit stays on. If you have high DC voltage on the outputs (one or both) this means that channel(s) needs repairs (most likely the power transistors are blown). If one of the paired transistors is gone you need to replace both of them anyway.

Where are the fuses in the harman kardon 3380 receiver, I had a lightning strike which I think knocked out my receiver thru my outdoor speakers, it will not turn on, could it be a fuse and if yes, where is...


Hello Randy,
There are two options here: first, the power button is amber but unit still won't go. In this case try a 'factory reset' as per manual. If this won't work, it seems that the processor is gone (located on the display board) so you have to bring your unit into a authorized shop for repairs. Secondly, it might be just matter of some blown fuses which are located inside the unit on the transformer board. If after replacing (if they're blown) the unit still won't work or keeps blowing the new fuses, follow the first advice, meaning you have to bring the receiver to a service. To access the fuses, you have to remove the top cover.I wish you luck

My HK 3380 doesn`t turn on...


If the display does not turn on, then you have a power problem. The unit is not completely turning on. Since you opened up the unit, give it a sniff test to see if there is any burnt odor inside the unit. Check the fuses also. Have a look at the transformer board. It may have several fusible resistors sitting high on the board. If they burn open, there is no power to the display/cpu board.
