SOURCE: harman kardon just went dead

You may have overloaded it. Let it rest and cool down. Check the resistance on the speaker to make sure it is in spec with your amp.

Make sure someone didn't accidentally mute it or bump the audio in source wiring.

Make sure your speaker choice (A or B or both or none for headphones only) is correct.

I have a Harmon Kardon TD-3 that I'm looking to sell. It's not in its original cabinet, but in a smaller box that takes up less space.

SOURCE: can I conect harman Kardon avr 230 to apple tv

Yes, although it (AVR) does not support HDMI only component video.

Connect the audio to the receiver and the video directly to the TV if you have inadequate video inputs, or want to take advantage of the HDMI.

When i turn on my harmon kardon avr 165 it shows ''Protect'' and then it turns off again?? what can i do :)


I would try disconnecting the speakers, then turn it on. If protect still shows with no speakers connected, then it needs to go to the repair shop- Might be a blown power transistor.

My Harmon Kardon AVR 2600 goes to protect mode when powered up. After many tries it will fire up but at times it's up to twenty times. I did load the software upgrade 6 months and it has been fine


Check all speaker wiring for shorts, if okay! there is a problem in the audio output stage of the unit or the protection circuit is not working properly. I would suggest a pro to evaluate.

I have Harmon Kardon AV140 connected to 6 Klipsch speakers. All of sudden I know longer have any sound coming out of my front speakers. Everything was working fine a few days ago. Did we hit a button in...


Only the front speakers failing? All others ok?

There is NO configuration that would have NO front speakers.

Go back to basics, open the manual and use test tones for speaker verification.

Protect flashing on screen


Output amp needs repair or you have shorted speaker wire or bad speaker. Disconnect speakers. If still going into protect mode after turning reciever back on then have amp repaired.

Harmon Kardon AVR300.**protect** blinks when powered on.Took cover off no obvious problem.Disconnected EVERYTHING from back panel,still blinks **PROTECT**.


The protect message means that the outputs are shorted. This is a fairly common problem that can easily be fixed by any shop that handles audio gear. Expect a parts cost in the $20-$40 range.

I have a Harman Kardon AVR 235 Receiver that go's into Protect


To avoid making the avr go into protect mode when you power up your Hafler 4000 that is connected in the avr's pre-out, you must power up the set up in the correct sequence.

1. Turn off your avr
2. Connect Hafler 4000 to the avr's pre-out it it is not yet connected
3. Turn on your Hafler 4000. The avr will not go into protect mode becasue of the transients from the Hafler because it is still not powered on.
4. Turn on you avr. There should be no more transients from the Hafler at this stage unless it is not functioning correctly, so the avr shouldno longer go into protect mode.
