Question about Harman Kardon AVR 325 Receiver

Shutdown during exciting audio


I have a harmon kardon AVR 325 and for some reason it will just turn off during exciting areas of movies and TV. For example, whenever there are a lot of explosions and stuff the sound will just turn off. The volume isn't even all that high, so I don't know what could be causing this. Any suggestions?

Re: Shutdown during exciting audio

I have the same problem also. Customer service told me to double check all my cable wires to make sure there is no short. Heck I just went ahead and unplugged all the speaker wires and then it was fine. I replaced all speaker wires and it worked for a couple days but its starting up again. i did the hard reset like the manual told me to do but the same problem.

Thats what customer support told me to do. They said it could be because its going into a safe mode. Mine is just shutting down no matter what sound is coming out of the tv or movie.

Hi, I have a Harmon Kardon Model No. AVR 325 that keeps clipping. When I push the power button the display turns off like a second after I push power. Seems like its a easy fix. Nothing if fried visually...

it sounds like Amp burned, but not all burn parts you can see, you have to measure them by DMM. I guess at least one AMP transistor shorted. you can check SPK terminals by DMM DC, it can be easy to find different with other one

Hi if there is an optical out on the television i would use that direct to your Harmon Kardon AVR 125, the sound would be in sync with picture, as the source is the same.

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.
