Question about Harman Kardon AVR 300 Receiver

Cannot get dts from my Harmon Kardon AVR 300 via my Blue Ray

I recently purchased a Sanyo Blue Ray and cannot get a 5.1 or dts signal when connected to my Harmon Kardon AVR 300 (purchaced 2003). I have tried optical and coax cables. I always picked up dts when available on my dvd players in the past.

Is it possible that my HK AVR 300 obsolete and not compatible with Blue Ray?

Thanks,

Mark

    No surround sound when using the Blue Ray player or the Smart TV application. It does work when using just the TV and surround sound. More details are above. Thank you.

I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:

I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...

Hope this helps...

It says on front screen PHONESIN but there is no one connected


Might be a stuck contact in the headphone jack. Try inserting a headphone plug in there a couple times to see if it clears the fault. If that doesn't work, you probably need to have the headphone jack replaced.

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.

I want to connect my old Sony turntable to my Harmon Kardon AVR130 but whatever I do the volume is very low and I cannot get it working. Any idea how to solve this issue?


If your turntable is old, it probably does not have a built in amplifier. You might want to purchase a pre-amp to boost the signal a bit before it goes into the receiver.

Need starchoice codes for Karman Kardon AVR 220


http://www.starchoice.ca/english/customercare/techcentral/remote_controls.asp

Look here for the codes to whatever remote you have. The chances are there arent any though. Harmon Kardon codes are a very unique signal that most remotes cant duplicate. More than likely you are going to have to use the original Harmon Kardon remote.

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.

Cheers,
Sergey
