Re: no sound

I had the same issue. I took it to an HK authorized repair center and they repaired it for $135. Something about a number of capacitors being blown.

I have Harmon Kardon AV140 connected to 6 Klipsch speakers. All of sudden I know longer have any sound coming out of my front speakers. Everything was working fine a few days ago. Did we hit a button in...

Only the front speakers failing? All others ok?

There is NO configuration that would have NO front speakers.

Go back to basics, open the manual and use test tones for speaker verification.

Do you know if the harman/kardon avr125 reciever is 3d capable?thanks

Actually Home theater sound, is 3D. (Three Dimentional) Your receiver, using surround speakers reproduces 3D sound.
i.e. It is Left to Right, and Front to Rear. Thus it's 3D. If your get a 3D TV, your sound will be just fine because it doesn't come from the set. The sound SOURCE is the DVD player, CD player or Cable Box. If you use digital audio outputs (optical cable or orange colored RCA cables) from these items connected into the Harmon-Kardon, your will get the full Home Theater sound. The Harmon Kardon does not have HDMI inputs however it will not need them for the purposes of sound. Your Receiver is a high quality unit. If you want the thrill of 3D TV, go ahead and get one. After you have set it up, if you then decide you want to go to 7.1 or some other SOUND upgrade, go ahead. One thing you should know, is that there is not a whole lot of audio quality improvement available after 5.1. Unless you have a very large living room. The real quality counts when choosing the speakers and sub woofer that go into the system, not the amount of speakers you have.
I have done a number of high end home theater installations and the experience of hearing the systems (mostly 5.1) has been a thrill for the owner.
I hope this helps you,
Best Regards,

Harmon Kardon AVR 235 no sound

Ensure that your speakers are connected to the terminals that you have your speaker selector switch turned to.
Then check that you have your device, whether it be a CD or DVD player, or turntable, plugged into the correct input and that you also have the correct input selected on the receiver.

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.
