Hi Sicarius

I know it sounds dumb to ask these questions as you may or may not have already, but have you checked that any tape monitors are turned on. Another thing to check is that the "prein preout" jumpers are in place on the rear of the unit. If they are not there, just use a spare rca lead to jumper them. Let me know how you got on. Good luck

regards
Graeme

SOURCE: harmon kardon avr 25 II

hey i also had this problem, i don't know the name of these but they are basically plugs that you have to block output from the front rear and center speakers of the white/red cables... sry for bad description but its on the left side when looking at the back of the receiver, while all of the other speaker wires should be hooked up to the right with the twisting knobs... it took me forever to find this out but yeah it was a simple fix

i assume you are hooking up from tv to receiver with an optical cable? Check the settings on your tv. Most tv's have a setting to turn on/off the optical audio output

Hi if there is an optical out on the television i would use that direct to your Harmon Kardon AVR 125, the sound would be in sync with picture, as the source is the same.

My receiver doesn't have a dedicated subwoofer output, can I still hook up a subwoofer? I have a harmon kardon avr 25


That would depend mostly on your subwoofer. There are some that slave off the front left and right speaker outputs and still pass the amp's power to the Front Speakers. That would be the only way that would ensure volume control.

Otherwise you have to feed a self-powered sub from the Tape Outs but that won't allow volume control from the H-K.

Harmon Kardon AVR 230 produces no sound and no monitor out.


you do not have +17v and -17v on transformer board the top two fusible resistors are blown and the cap between them needs to be replaced as this cap probably shorted and caused resistors to blow. easy fix

Harmon kardon avr 25 ii


I upgraded my HK AVR 20II and ran into the same problem when I tried to hook the old unit up out in my garage.

Luckily I remember that on the rear there is a pre-out RCA port (L/R) and a Main-In port that are intended to be to/from an equalizer/amplifier. These come jumpered out of the box, but I had been using an equalizer so the jumpers were long lost.

Assuming you also have no amp/eq you are using, just connect the Pre-Out to the Main-In using a standard M/M RCA cable and you will be in business. (turn the volume down first!)

Good luck.
