Harmon kardon avr 125 shuts down

My HK 125 shuts down randomly after running for different periods of time. Makes a buzzing, clipping strange sound before shutting down. After turning power button off ( not standby) for some time I can get it to come back on

CHECK YOUR WIRING!!! I have had problems from time to time, generally after re-arranging, and have found speaker wires slightly touching on 1 channel caused my AVR to give similar problems. GOOD LUCK!!!

Re: harmon kardon avr 125 shuts down

If you want to fix it:

It must be a contact problem arount the power switch, power cable, fuse or the condensator area.
Maybe you can se a black color on the board.
And checking the solderind points with a magnifyer can help too.

Thats all from that distence.

Can I connect guitar to my Harmon Kardon receiver

Sorry. They are not compatible. The headphone jack is an output but you need an input for a guitar or bass. You will certainly damage the HK if you continue. There are no compatable inputs on the HK. The inputs are meant to be used with a 300mv output device, such as a CD or DVD.

Harmon kardon hk3270 shuts off after only being on about 10 sec

Disconnect speakers and wires. Bad wiring or defective speakers may be loading the amp down and causing the protection circuits inside to disconnect (no sound). If the HK is heating up (beyond what you perceive as normal) with no wires or speakers connected then you have a problem requiring expert repair.

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.

Static and popping from Harmon Kardon AVR 340


You seem have a problem with a component in that channel, the bad news is that it is hard to fix that type of problem (you would be better off if the channel died). All of the components in the final output section are part of the same audio loop (per channel), which makes it hard to find the faulty part.

Sounds to me like a bypass or coupling capacitor is faulty or need to be re-soldered, either way to fix this problem you should take it in to a repair shop.

I hope that helps and sorry for the bad news.

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...
