Front Display Dimming - Almost Totally Gone

I have an HK AVR 125 and I've had it for several years under normal use (4-5 hours per day). Two years ago I moved into a new house and relocated the receiver to my bedroom along with DVDplayer, VCR and Satellite box (all sitting on top of Receiver).

I have noticed that the Display window is now starting to dim to the point where it's almost totally out. What can be done to stop/ repair it so that I can see my display again?

Check and see if you don't have a auto dim setting on or you changed Display setting.

I have same Amp and this happened to me also.

Hi...

Find someone that does TV or audio repair and have them open it up. A cable assembly may have loosened during the MOVE.

Harman/kardon avr 247 no audio or LED display on the reciever


I've had the exact problem. HK in the states is no help, you need to deal with a company in Montreal (Jan Industries). Regular techs are unable to fix it without schematics that only authorized dealers have and the manufacturer. This problem happened to me just after 2 years and outside warranty. I've bought a Yamaha today.

Static and popping from Harmon Kardon AVR 340


Hi,

You seem have a problem with a component in that channel, the bad news is that it is hard to fix that type of problem (you would be better off if the channel died). All of the components in the final output section are part of the same audio loop (per channel), which makes it hard to find the faulty part.

Sounds to me like a bypass or coupling capacitor is faulty or need to be re-soldered, either way to fix this problem you should take it in to a repair shop.

I hope that helps and sorry for the bad news.

HK avr125 5.1, no display, no functions.


Same problem. C901 on the vertically-mounted input board next to the power supply transformer was burned. Replaced with ceramic cap from RS with same specs. Still did not work. Talked to Jeb, great guy at HK tech support. He suggested that R901 would probably be blown and maybe 902 also. These are flame-proof resistors and do not show damage. Tested with multimeter and Jeb was spot on. Replaced 1w resistors with 5w (all RS had) at same resistance. Works great.

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.
