Just thought I’d share my experience, I have a 04 cooper with the HK. The radio was still working but the HK settings were lost in the head unit and there was no sound coming out of the speakers so I concluded it was the amp.

I wrote to the Mini UK Customer Services manager, Simon Anderson ( Harman Kardon R0 amp not working?? - clip_image001.gifsimon.anderson@bmw.co.uk), citing I believed the problem was inherent and that it should be replaced for free. He denied this and asked for me to take it to my dealer and once diagnosed ask for a goodwill gesture towards fixing it. I did, they diagnosed that it was the Amp and said that would be 700 quid to fix (160 diagnosis fee, 410 for the amp and 90 for fitting plus VAT). I then asked for goodwill and, after fighting to not to have to pay the diagnosis fee because I approached Simon knowing what the problem was, got it for 160 inc vat which was 20% of the price of the amp plus half an hour fitting. I also had to contact their customer service department a bunch because getting through to Simon direct was challenging. The BMW head office number is 01344 426565, ask for him and they will put you through. FYI the goodwill was, in part I was told, based on the fact that I’d had a ‘real’ bmw dealer service my car.

It still annoys me that I had to pay anything as there clearly is a problem but c’est la vie. If anyone has managed to get this for free from BMW I’d be interested to know.

Good luck

Regards

Ben

I have bought a 2004 mini cooper with a popping sound in the speakers and after 3 visits to different car sound installers i have ordered a new after market amp as the original is just too expensive. Sounds like these original amps are not much good anyway and BMW dont want to know about them. Doesnt say much for H/K if their mini amps keep going U/S. Cost A$77 to tell me what I already knew that it was the amp. If you know any good after market amps that will last more than 5 years please let me know cheers

Will Harman Kardon HK 206 speakers work with Dell Inspiration 560 with Windows 7 and if so how do you hook them up and install


since they are stereo they should have not issue. just connect the 3.5mm jack to your output port typically the green audio jack.

Speakers don't Work on HP Pavilion f1903 desktop


Just match the color of the male and female on each end. Plug the audio cable (mini stereo phone plugs) to the PC audio line out (green miniphone jack) to the Powered speaker mini stereo phone audio line input jack (green color jack). You will have to set the volume controls of the speaker control knob and at the PC on screen volume control panel.

Harman Kardon AVR 245 Receiver PROTECT Error Message/Shutting Down All Equipment


could be your receiver only, it has tripped due to discrepancy on the output stage of your amp. that cracking sound in one of your speakers could have caused the trouble. it is possibly shorted. but in your case it could have damaged already the amp that;s why it would not turn on. normally it will first trip, turn on then turns off. but to stay off and not to turn on again is major problem of the amp. or maybe it emanated from miscabling, probably the ceiling speakers got connected to a high output or main amp. but try removing all speakers first then turn the unit on. see if it does power up.

CKO In-Car DVD Player Distortion (CKOMMP001)


you need something called a "Line Output Converter". It will reduce the speaker level signal and is usually adjustable. Most car audio shops have them for about $20.
