Question about Harman Kardon SB 16 Main / Stereo Speaker

Open Question

Can't get my new Harman Kardon sb 16 system to work at all.

I initially purchased the HK sb 16 to work with a surround sound system powered by the HK AVR 1700. Having failed at all attempts to get them to work together, I decided to try and connect the sb 16 directly to the TV to see if I would have better luck. Unfortunately, I cannot get any sound to come out of the sound bar or the subwoofer. I went through all the troubleshooting steps multiple times and still no luck. HELP!!

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.

In the event of the complaint: “the receiver is losing its memory (any programmed system settings)
when the unit is turned off, or after the unit is unplugged (briefly*)”:

Check and replace:

SOURCE: Want to use only subwoofer of HK695

The problem is that you need the satallite speakers , they have the volume control on them which thats why you only hear the subwoofer.. yes , i tried other speakers to it and no sound either.So you will need the satellite speakers it come with.. good luck!!

SOURCE: Front audio channel burnout

Resistors can fail from being turned up to hire, wires getting bumped together or against metal, speakers being wrong ohms, or just plainly overheating.

SOURCE: Harman Kardon AVR 154 OSD setup screen wont display

It will only display via component. Your HDMI firmware is either 1.1 or 1.2 and has HDCP issues (High Definition Copyright Protection) it's a firmware problem that has been fixed on all new receivers, not just a HK issue, all receivers! the new version 1.3a and 1.3b have fixed the issue. Unfortunately you cannot update the firmware on the receiver. Hope this explains it for you, sorry! Lot's of angry people out there!!! myself included.

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.

Just purchased a used hk 3370,only hear a little bit of sound if I turn the volume all the way up.Tried both speaker sets and headphone jack,all the same


Turn the volume down. Maximum volume is not a troubleshooting tool. If it's silent at half volume, it's essentially source-free. No sense blowing your speakers up when we find the setting that's wrong.

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Harman-Kardon-HK3370-Receivers-manual/id/386ag421/t/2/


Let's us FM for the initial silence issue. Tune a station.

Look carefully at the front panel. Analyze every indicator.

Is MUTED turned on?
Is a Tape selected by mistake?

Fiber Optic input


No gots. The 3485 is pre-digital stereo-only.

From the manual, page 19

"You may have observed that the HK 3485 is not equipped with digital audio inputs or surround sound decoding. If you prefer the complete home theater experience, you may wish to consider purchasing a fullfeatured Harman Kardon AVR Series audio/video receiver. However, we hope you will find that using a DVD player with the HK 3485 in smaller settings, such as a bedroom or den, surpasses the audio performance of most televisions, including those with onboard stereo speakers."

Harman kardon avr 140 - all displays work but no sound


I have an HK AVR140 all of the displays work, even shows when a digital connection from the Blu-Ray player is connected but no audio comes from the speakers! I found some information that HK does not have DC protection so when there is a problem muting Circuit is initiated on the main Amp. I called HK and they want me to send it in to a service dept that is not close at all. Any ideas? Or is there a way to by-pass the muting circuit somehow?
