Home stereo harmon/kardon avr 235 keeps going into protect mode

Stereo plays radio and dvd player fine but I have a 12 year old Sony cd player connected to the stereo and after about 20 seconds of play, the stereo goes into protect mode.Can I assume the cd player is overloading the system or does the cd player have a short or something? Thanks

    Cables are fine.It has to be the CD player since the stereo and DVD player don't go into protect mode. Any other suggestions?

  • dnedrow Jul 09, 2009

    CD player is connected directly to the reciever. The cable is connect to the cd player jacks.I switched out the cable but that didn't resolve the issue. There is no volume on the cd player.

SOURCE: cannot get dts from my Harmon Kardon AVR 300 via my Blue Ray

I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:

I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...

Hope this helps...

SOURCE: DVD player and receiver will not play a dvd in surround sound ?

The dvd player is responsible for reading the surround sound track, and sending it to the receiver. First make sure you are playing the surround sound track on the dvd, many have a stereo track too. Next, try another dvd and see if you can play surround sound on that one. If you can't play surround on ANY dvd I would start looking at the audio connection from dvd to receiver. Are you using an optical cable? Red, white, and yellow RCA cables? Optical will transmit any sound over only one cable, RCA cables need one cable for each channel (LF, C, RF, LR, RR, sub.) If your connections are correct, is the receiver set to play a surround sound track? Is it set in 2 channel mode?

SOURCE: humming noise

Usually Humming noises come from frequency interferance.  In this case it is being caused by your input sources.  A smiply solution is to replace the cables and or seperate the source cables away from any electircal cords or sources.

Hello

Yes, there is something you can try, to know where to look for the problem if this happens again. If the receiver is still under warranty, just send it back, otherwise, open up the amp and trace the path back from the speaker channel to the capacitors on each channel, this is usually the problem(you should be able to see if it is blown, cheap to repair).

If all the channels went out at the same time, there is something wrong with the central unit, to repair that, if it is not the above problem, cost expensive.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Ensure that your speakers are connected to the terminals that you have your speaker selector switch turned to.
Then check that you have your device, whether it be a CD or DVD player, or turntable, plugged into the correct input and that you also have the correct input selected on the receiver.

My Harmon Kardon AVR 2600 goes to protect mode when powered up. After many tries it will fire up but at times it's up to twenty times. I did load the software upgrade 6 months and it has been fine


Check all speaker wiring for shorts, if okay! there is a problem in the audio output stage of the unit or the protection circuit is not working properly. I would suggest a pro to evaluate.

I have a Harman Kardon AVR 235 Receiver that go's into Protect


To avoid making the avr go into protect mode when you power up your Hafler 4000 that is connected in the avr's pre-out, you must power up the set up in the correct sequence.

1. Turn off your avr
2. Connect Hafler 4000 to the avr's pre-out it it is not yet connected
3. Turn on your Hafler 4000. The avr will not go into protect mode becasue of the transients from the Hafler because it is still not powered on.
4. Turn on you avr. There should be no more transients from the Hafler at this stage unless it is not functioning correctly, so the avr shouldno longer go into protect mode.
