Question about Harman Kardon AVR 125 Receiver

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.

My Cox HD/DVR controller will turn off but will not turn on my new HKAVR1700 using the AUX button on the Cox supplied URC-8820-Cisco remote.


This is a documented problem with the Harmon/Kardon AVR-1700 and the Cox remote. Here's how I solved it. On the HK1700, go to System Settings and turn on HDMI Link. This will allow your TV (if it has the feature) to put the HK in standby mode when you power down the TV. Go to your setting on your TV and turn on HDMI link, or equivalent. I have a Sony TV and the setting is called "Control For HDMI." Then, use code 0110 for your Cox remote. This code will only turn on the HK, not turn it off. BUT, the HDMI Link should put the HK into standby.

Humming sound (speakers)when HK AVR is powered up.


In my case the buzz was only on front speakers. There are 3 capasitors (100uF/25V) very close to the cooling ribs of 3 regulators in the power supply. In my case the C922 was bad.

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.

This is what's in the AVR7000 service manual:

Subject: Backup Memory on AVR/DPR/HK series receivers.
In the event of the complaint: “the receiver is losing its memory (any programmed system settings)
when the unit is turned off, or after the unit is unplugged (briefly*)”:

Check and replace:
Model: AVR7000
Designator: C730
Location: Front PCB
Description: 0.047 Farad 5.5v capacitor
Part number: # P10790-ND or # J3432147324X

I'm having the same problem and this is how far i got so far. I don't kwow how to get and replace this part.
