    hey guys its stilkl in the shop ,so far all the cap. on dsp board had to be replaced something like 30 of them.If that is the only problem what would be a fair price for that job? My shop i s asking for 150.Keep in mind i supplied him with all of your data up front,and i bought him a copy of service manual.Hopefully that is the only thing wrong.Now 4 the big question how do i prevent this from occuring again? and why this it happed (dried cap.)in teh 1st place.Improper cooling?Does heat bring this on? or is a circuitry problem.Dont want to be back in the shop.Thank yo guys for the time you put in fior me',burp.burp.:}

Hi,
OK, now for the right answer! I just finished fixing one of these with similar problems, no surround, but stereo OK.

On the audio processing board and the DSP board and maybe the audio I/O board, every capacitor smaller that 47uF will probably be open. You can use an ESR meter in circuit to test them, but I got tired of that after about the 10 th one and just changed them all - no more problems.

Don't worry about the big capacitors.

Thanks.
Don

Hi Chris,
I don't work on many car amps anymore although have in the past. ( Just not something I care much for, You know we all have our favorites). The caps being bad is definally a stong possibi;ity as I find this same problem in surround sound home systems, but also find that if there are bad caps, I normally find resistors in the cap area may also be bad, which I would suggest you also check that possibility. I sell remotes, but don't know if they would work with your system. I'de suggest searching on remote web sights. ( then you'de be assured the remote should work ).
Thanks also to you for requesting me as a buddie and should I come up with a problem I can't figure out, rest assured, I'll be knocking on your door.

    Hi Chris,

    The caps you are needing to check are of a high value ( lets guess at 22,000 mfd) so checking them in line is about impossible. When checking a cap with a vom meter ( I assume this is what you are using ), check the cap in the resistance ( ohm ) test. The capacitor, if it's good should charge ( slowly for a higher value ) but it should charge unless you reverse the leads and it will discharge and then recharge in the opposite polarity. I normally have a small supply of all capacitors on hand and don't even check them ( I just change them ). It's time verses money. As for the cost of a processor or a fair price to repair, it defiantly depends on the part of the country one is in to determine a fair price. At our shop we have a flat rate on audio equipment and that is normally at 70 dollars plus parts ( depending on how bad the board might be burned ), but one might want to send it in to the manufacture and they would flat fee and also flat fee parts ( probably a better price than most shops ).

    I really couldn't even give you an honest answer to how much a total price would be for your amp not knowing how badly the inners might be damaged. ( Possible bad processor, transistors, diodes capacitors, etc )

    Sorry I can't be more precise.

    The cap you are speaking of is a low value so you may want to just change it as the cost will be low. The Caps I am speaking of are much bigger and what I have found to be more of a problem than the small ones. If you see a cap that has a swollen top, is leaking or has the heat shrink around it pulled down ( from extensive heat ) be assured it is bad. I would also think you need to consider a possible bad processor or transistor for your problem.

    Sorry, I can't solicit jobs on FitYa as you know, but am happy to help any way I can.

Can you hoop up an external equalizer to the Harman Kardon AVR 30?


Any traditional old-school analog stereo processor can be used only with analog stereo sources.

If this receiver had any digital sources, you would eventually discover that activation of a Tape Loop disables digital sources. Just the same you CAN still use DSP on processed 2-channel audio.

Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com

http://www.retrevo.com/s/Harman-Kardon-AVR-30-Receivers-review-manual/id/386bh140/t/1-2/

It's should clearly marked on the back of the EQ where everything goes.

The Line IN and Line Out would go to any available Tape Loop on the receiver. Something that has Out's and In's. Obviously, Out's on one device go to In's on the next.

How to connect my eq to my harman kardon recevier model avr-247


The following is some boilerplate I made up that should explain some usage limitations.


Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.


The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.


In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).


Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.


The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.


EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.


In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? They would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.


Okay, back to the hook-up:


Any of the following audio connections on the HK will work: Tape, Vid1 or Vid 2.


Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;


Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.


So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer

Multi room will not play any digital input, just analog. I.e. Video 1 when analog connection plays in multi room, but optical 1, when set as input for vid 1 will not play in multi; works fine in main...


I have a Marantz 7.1 AV receiver (sr5500) and I run a 5.1 set up for home theatre and use the 2 extra channels to run a pair of outdoor stereo speakers... When I first set it up I also found I could not get a digital signal output, only analog, after reading the manual(!) I discovered that it can only output an analog signal...so I have used the phono outputs on my blu-ray player into the CD input of the AV amp and play CDs outside through this and it also outputs the optical digital signal into the AV amp through the DVD input...my iPod also plays through a dock and it's analog output to the speakers outside through another (CD-R) anolog input on the amp... Hope this helps

I have a Harman/Kardon AVR 325. Left speaker not working with TV


How is TV audio (from the cable box) getting into the Receiver? If digitally, you wouldn't be missing any one channel on a connection malfunction, you'd lose them all. If analog, swap the channels around to isolate the problem (and reconsider using digital).

How to play dts/dolby digital on HK AVR5


I believe he avr-5 has 6 channel inputs, what you will need is a dolby digital 5.1 and DTS outboard surround sound processor, say an item as the Technics SH-AC500 decoder, a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 DTS version outboard processor/preamp, and many others on the market by different manufactors, Run the discrete audio outputs from the Processor into the AVR 5`s 6 channel inputs, select 6 channel input or DVD inputs on the receivers selector and your good to go. Be sure you are playing Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS encoded material.

WTF is wrong with my harman kardod AVR7000?


hey, I just bought a used avr7000 from auction and it has similar problems that you and others have posted on the net. From the receiver mine has no audio and at times minutes/hours apart sound comes out for a few seconds and then cuts out again. i have yet to try the inputs, you can download the service manual from www.eserviceinfo.com i am of the understanding that the problem is on the DSP board(it has the digital/optical inputs), primarily the 10uf capacitors(about 10) need replacement. Im am yet to try anything, the board looks delicate and would required proper soldering and desoldering tools. from australia

Shuts down after 4-5 seconds


Your set does not have a display problem I'm afraid. The unit is shutting down because it is going into whats called the protect mode. You said that when you disconnect something the display stays on. That tells you that the audio amp is probably what you disconnected so the receiver does not see a short anywhere. You will need to have the output circuit diagnosed for this to work. Good Luck

Harman kardon avr-147


Hi Javis. This is perfectly normal ! This mode change is done because the receiver auto detects the digital audio signal and sets the receiver's DSP to decode the signal correctly. You can go into the OSD menu to bypass the auto detection of it, but it's not recommended at all ! You're getting the best audio quality by doing so. Thanks ! cheebster.
