Shutdown during exciting audio


I have a harmon kardon AVR 325 and for some reason it will just turn off during exciting areas of movies and TV. For example, whenever there are a lot of explosions and stuff the sound will just turn off. The volume isn't even all that high, so I don't know what could be causing this. Any suggestions?

i have the exact same problem, different model, but the same none the less. all wires and cables are connected correctly and are not grounded or touching eachother or anything like that. listening to music on the dvd player works fine in both stereo and all surrounds modes. watching movies it shuts off usually durring exciting parts but sometimes it shuts off in other parts. what is going on???

Check the wattage of the speakers, they could be drawing too many watts from your amplifier, if you plug in a speaker that's more than the channel, it could harm your amp.
for example a 200 watt stereo, with 4 channels that equals 50 watts per speaker.

Hope this helps you out

My Harmon kardon is stuck in protect mode

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.

Hello. I get no sound on my AVR 7000, when I use optical or coax. entrance. Possible D / A converter is destroyed. For that reason, I would first try to reset the amplifier. Thank you,Stein G.L

Proper digital sound reproduction would depend on your setup. Do you have digital inputs assigned and selected correctly?

In all AVR's I have seen, if you have any tape monitor selected you won't get any digital sound.

Sound output problems

Are you saying a stereo source sometime switches to multichannel? In my experience, that's the opposite of what I think could be happening.

Many AVR's have automation that can be set to select the better of the two audio paths from a source if you have analog and digital assigned to the same input. If digital is present, it prefers it. If the signal degrades or goes away, it switches to analog. I think it's trying to tell you the hdmi cable connection or the source is flaky.

Perhaps you could flesh out the details of what input is being used and also look at the source device. Isolate the cause by swapping it to another compatible input and/or trying another cable.

Distortion with HK AVR 144

This sounds like the amplifer is playing up. If the distortion is on more than one channel, you are looking at a faulty part common to both channels. If on one channel only, perhaps something in the pre-amp or power amp sections. Have a look inside, you might find a burnt resistor, which would cause it.

Harmon Kardon AVR 146 amp has a problem - when it goes too loud - reaching 29.5 db it shuts off after giving this msg ''PROTECT'' on the amp panel. Meaning as long as we are using the amp at 30 or above 30...

Hiya check all the speakers are working and one is not faulty. Can do this by checking one at a time connected to the amp. You could also possibly isolate the faulty channel ( if it is that) by disconnecting until the problem stops.

If not there then unfortunately it will have to go in for repair . Best of luck
