Re: avr 35 volume control

Are you using the two small silver touch + and - controls that are set close to the bottom of one sound stick? They are very discrete and easily missed. (I did at first.)

Scratchy sounding volume controls?

If you have a scratchy sounding volume control or your channels cut in and out when adjusting the volume you are most likely suffering from a dirty potentiometer (volume knob) Fully disassemble your DTT2500 unit and liberally spray electronics cleaner in every party of the volume knob (and the other knobs as well). Let fully dry before reassembling.

My subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is constantly generating lots of bass noise even on mute.

I assume you are using XP. Try these steps.
1. Open 'Sound and Audio devices' in Control Panel.
2. Select 'Advanced...' button near bottom. b2053f1.jpg

3. Select 5.1 system 972ed04.jpg

4. Start playing a sound.
5. Set the volume control of the subwoofer to the middle position.
6. Open volume control and adjust Master volume to a comfortable level (i.e. until there is no hum).
Also make sure you haven't muted any sound device except microphone. I think your problem is you have set it to the maximum level. So decrease it.
7. Mute the sound and check.
Good luck! Let us know the result.

OK, a few things here. First of all, what program are you using to listen to music? Some programs have an automatic volume leveling setting. If you're using Windows Media Player, it has one. Next, you should NEVER set any speaker/volume/amplifier knob to Maximum setting if you want to get any life out of your speakers. Speaker ratings are for consistent volume levels at a "clean" power level. When you turn any music source up past 80% you are pushing more distortion through the speakers that they cannot reproduce without self destructing. The human ear cannot hear this, and the volume gain is minimal. Next we'll talk about that your dealing with a combination of power levels compiling into an amplifier that may be taking in more than it can aptly amplify according to it's power multiplier scheme to increase the volume at the speaker level. If you've got everything maxed out, you're probably just pushing it all WAY too hard. All over exerted energy that is not being used productively will end up in generating heat and distortion. Those are your 2 biggest enemies when it comes to anything audio. Distortion tears voice coils and generates disruptive electrical currents, and heat destroys circuitry and components in amplifiers. The times where they jump up in volume, just look at that as borrowed time until they blow. If you want louder, get a better or more powerfully rated set, and still, NEVER turn it up past 80% if you want it to last.

Learning remote codes for my harmon kardon avr354

a) Place the two remotes so that their IR transmitters face each other
end to end, separated by about one inch. The
AVR 354 remote’s transmitter also serves as an IR receiver during
the learning process.– AVR 354 and Original Remote Head-to-Head

b) Press the Source Selector for the device mode you wish to learn
a code into, and place the AVR 354 remote in Learning mode by
pressing and holding the Learn Button until the Source Selector lights
up, then release.

Learning Remote Commands

c) Press the button on the AVR 350 remote you wish to program with
the new code, and the Source Selector will flash once. You may
learn a new code into the following buttons: Device Power On/Off,
Alphanumeric Keys, Last Button, Back/Exit Button, Menu Button, Navigation Buttons, OK Button, Disc Menu Button,
the four Teletext Buttons, Channel Up/Down, Volume Up/Down,
Mute and the Transport Controls (including Record).

d) Press and hold the button on the device’s original remote whose
code you wish to “learn” until the Source Selector flashes three
times, then release.

e) You may program additional buttons by repeating steps c) and d).
Press the Learn Button once to exit Learning mode, or wait for the
remote to “time out” and exit Learning mode on its own after about
30 seconds.

Sound is Pulsating when music plays

Ahh, I have these speakers and its common when you have the volume knob turned all the way down, to fix it, turn the volume REALLY low in windows, so that way you have to turn the volume knob on the speaker control up to 50-100%. And you will have better sound..... No pulsing

Headphone volume?

Unfortunately, I believe this is by design. The knob does not control the volume of the headphone jack on those speakers. The best you can do is set the volume control in Windows so that the headphone volume is acceptable and turn the knob up higher for speaker listening.

Using headphones with Logitech X-230 speakers

I really don't know, because some of the newer gadgets come with fixed volume control due to law suits, ect. Try to see if you can bring you TV menu up and see what the sound setting is.
