Harman Kardon 146 receiver not turning on.

Possible blown fuse inside unit, unplug and remove the top cover
fuse should be near the power board and transformer. replace with exact fuse, "Never remove covers with the unit plugged in" Always wait 4 or 5 minutes after unplugging to remove the cover.Replace cover before plugging unit back in.

Harman kardon avr 151 stuck on tv speaker mode

Try this.
To reset the AVR's processor:
1. Press the front-panel Standby/On switch for more than three seconds to turn the AVR
off (the Power Indicator will turn amber).
2. Press and hold the front-panel Surround Modes button for at least 5 seconds until the
RESET message appears on the front-panel Message Display.
NOTE: After performing a processor reset, wait at least 1 minute before pressing any
Source Selector buttons.

Good Luck
Happy to help

Front display is totally dark. AVR keeps operating.

Do a soft reset. Turn off the system using the main switch on the back of the unit, then unplug it for 3 minutes. This should fix it.
Also consider investing in a power stabilizer as the avr is quite sensitive to power fluctuation.

My HK AVR 135 wont turn on. The orange light comes on but when i try to turn it on it does nothing. It has done this before and i ust unplugged it and plugged it back in and it turned on for a brief period...

Try unpluging the unit for atleast 2 hrs. The capacitors bleed off energy very slow, thats why it needs to be unpluged for a couple hrs. If that doesnt work it usually means the powersupply is going out.

My receiver stays in standby mode and will not power up. It will turn off but will only turn on back to standby.

Unplug the unit from power and wait at least five minutes. Plug it back in and try it. If that does not work check your operating manual to see if there is a reset that can be performed. This would do a "factory reset" which would hopefully solve the problem. Good Luck!

Receiver shuts down and will not turn back on untill you unplug and plug back in

Nope. sorry to burst your bubble but your problem is pretty common on this unit. Its bad capacitors in the power supply and probably not worth repairing in a repair shop. since this is a solid state reciver, there are no user replaceable parts inside.
