Question about Harman Kardon SB 16 Main / Stereo Speaker
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.

This is what's in the AVR7000 service manual:
Subject: Backup Memory on AVR/DPR/HK series receivers.
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:
Location: Front PCB
Description: 0.047 Farad 5.5v capacitor
Part number: # P10790-ND or # J3432147324X
I'm having the same problem and this is how far i got so far. I don't kwow how to get and replace this part.

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!!

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

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.
