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

SOURCE: My Harman Kardon receiver (
I used the live chat and the problem was resolved.
Usually the problem are strands of speaker wires which cause shorting and protection shuts off the receiver in order to prevent damage. There was one speaker that I repositioned recently which was causing shorting. I twisted the wires and tightened them in place and my receiver has been working w/o a glitch. I was lucky that I did not have to check all the wire strands on the receiver and all the speakers.
Problem solved and I learned valuable lesson.

Yes, although it (AVR) does not support HDMI only component video.
Connect the audio to the receiver and the video directly to the TV if you have inadequate video inputs, or want to take advantage of the HDMI.

Testimonial: "cheers, have a good year."
There is an internal reset switch mounted on the transformer board. Open the unit, look at the boards attached to the transformer, the pushbutton is facing up. Measure the voltage on the 2 pins of the switch. If it is a logic low, the switch is partially shorted. Replace the switch or just cut the jumper wire just below thw switch. When this switch fails, it constantly resets the receiver and stops it from powering up. It does not fix a protection mode problem.
