Harmon Kardon avr 225

My son was using this receiver and the front panel went out. Radio does not come on, and there seems to be no activity, other than the power light comes on, standby works, and I can see the outside front panel that shows prologic, vd1, surround sound choices. Can you help with potential problems

Re: Harmon Kardon avr 225

I'm the last person that posted wanted to add that we heard a pop in the speakers when the system went out. We'll be taking the box apart soon to see if we can diagnose it...(fuse?)

Harmon kardon 745 displays "unlock" no sound for tv or movies

I also had this UNLOCK message on my Harman Cardon AVR 130.
The reason for this error was - in a hurry I've plugged the optical input into optical OUT! Double check that your connections in the back are correct and hopefully it fixes your problem.

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.

No sound

You need to have an input audio source on your receiver such as a DVD player or ipod. The radio is an internal source that is why yo uare hearing sound from it. One thing you could do is run a cable from the audio out jacks on your television to an input on the receiver, and then when you are watching TV select the input you put the cables in to hear the television sound through your receiver speakers.

Harman kardon just went dead

You may have overloaded it. Let it rest and cool down. Check the resistance on the speaker to make sure it is in spec with your amp.

Make sure someone didn't accidentally mute it or bump the audio in source wiring.

Make sure your speaker choice (A or B or both or none for headphones only) is correct.

Was using the harmon kardon avr 225 receiver and the front panel went out. .... screen display of the channel number, volume, or menu item does not work. ...

Try hooking up a yellow video wire from the back of the AVR 225 Monitor out. Should be at the end of the 7 or 8 yellow video ports on the back of the stereo. Next plug the other end into a yellow video in on a t.v. Get your remote, (Harmon/Kardon) and make sure the t.v. is on the correct video input and hit the OSD(on screen display) button on your harmon remote. There should be a setting in there that says VFD under ADVANCED menu option that allows for turning the front of your stereo lights on and off and dimming them half way also. OFF/HALF/FULL are the 3 options I believe.

If this doesnt solve it your display may have crapped out on you.
