Voltage Spike / Power Surge Harman Kardon AVR 130

Hi, I have a Harmon Kardon AVR 130 that has been disabled by a voltage spike / power surge. The receiver will (obviously) not turn on at all. I popped the cover off, and checked the fuses-- none of them seemed to be blown.

My questions-- Where exactly does the problem lie? Is this something I can fix myself? If not, what would an approximate cost be to get this fixed at an audio repair shop?

Thanks in advance for your help!

    I had the same problem... took it to a tech and they wanted to charge me $280-$900 to repair it. They told me the "microprocessor" needed to be replaced before they could test the unit. any help?

HOW TO RESET HARMAN KARDON AVR70


Hi, Try this. Hope this helps and I have the link here to the manual.
Processor Reset
If the AVr behaves erratically after a power surge, first turn off the front-panel
main
power switch and unplug the Ac power cord for at least 3 minutes. plug the cord back
in and turn the AVr on. If this procedure doesn't help, reset the AVr's processor as
described below.
note: resetting the processor will erase all user configurations, including speaker and
level settings, and tuner presets. After a reset, reenter all of these settings from your
notes in the Appendix worksheets.

To reset the AVR's processor:

1. press the front-panel Standby/on switch to place the unit in the Standby mode (the
Standby Indicator led will turn amber).
2. press and hold the front-panel Standby and memory/folder buttons until the reSet
message appears on the front-panel message display.
3. press the memory/folder button again to reset the AVr's processor.
If the AVr does not function correctly after a processor reset, contact an authorized
harman
kardon service center for assistance.
to locate an authorized service center,
visit our web site at www.harmankardon.com.

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,
