    Hello:

    This is Randy Wilson again. I have attempted to include a picture from a brochure that was in my HK 710 Tuner box. I hope it comes through.

    Thanks from a Gray haired Vietnam veteran who hopes to get his audio rig back up and running.

If your pushbutton is broken off the power switch, then we have the same problem! After several years of careful screwdriver use to push the plunger, I've dug it out and am trying again to fix it. Hopefully Gorrilla Glue will work this time.

If you've opened it up and looked at the idiotic switch activator Harmon Kardon put in this huge chassis, you are probably as mystified as I am! No wonder it broke, and I'm surprised it lasted so long! I've long since replaced it, but want to use it again now and trying again.
One word of warning. If you have the matching amp, and the power switch goes on that, it's easier to fix. There's a pushrod that goes from the front of the unit to the back, where the switch is, and it may just fall off. Open it up and put it back! That's it!

Good luck, and I hope you get the old stuff running again. I'm still using and loving my 25+ year old Klipsch La Scalas!

It is all about having reference material, trouble flow charts,

Only hissing sound from 990 Vxi tuner


I remember a similar problem with these back when I repaired them. It has something to do with the I.F. section of the AM/FM tuner section and will require a HK service visit. Find a local HK dealer who's been selling them "forever" and ask if they have a bench tech who they would recommend for the repair. I just saw one of these on Ebay for $25.00 so I wouldn't spend much to have it fixed.

Hi i recently bought a Takamine EG 260c G Series acoustic electric Guitar with TP-4T preamp installed in it. Now the problem is when i connect my guitar to an amplifier, the sound comes through it only...


That is working backwards from what it should be. I suspect a wiring error. Since this is a recent purchase, do NOT risk voiding your warranty. There isn't any real good documentation on the tuner.
I am not sure which tuner you have HOWEVER with one type, the FIRST press will turn on the tuner with the sound going out as well till the tuner goes off. The SECOND press silences the sound and is tuner only, the THIRD press turns off tuner and passes the sound. This is different than a lot of tuners and you will need to do three presses to restore sound instead of the usual two.

Hello,I am a guitar tech in Nanaimo,BC,Canada and have run into this problem before.Simply replace the Takamine output jack [where the guitar cord goes into] 3 screws and solder,and it will work fine again.The jack has a switching mechanism in it and when it fails it shorts the output out.The jack is available at most Takamine dealers or Allparts http://www.allparts.com/SearchResults.asp?searching=Y&sort=7&search=jack&show=20&page=5

Stereo connection


Hi spanky

Sorry for the delays in getting back to you. Been busy here this week.

OK. to connect the 2275 to the 1152,there are 2 ways of going about this.

You can plug the pre- out of the 2275 to the power amp-in of the 1152. In doing this you are using the power amp section of the 1152 and the preamp functions of the 2275. Your other gear like CD player, tape deck and so on also plug into the 2275.

the other(better) way is to plug the pre-out of the 2275 into the tuner inputs of the 1152, leaving the volume at about 40% on the 2275 and use the 1152 as an integrated amp. This means you are using the 2275 as a tuner only. When you do this, you will need to use an RCA lead to jumper the pre-out/poweramp-in connections on the back of the 1152, and the 2275 ... L to L and R to R respectively.

I am still wondering why you want to use 2 integrated amps (each having a preamp and a poweramp section) The only real benefit the 2275 brings to your system will be tuner functions. You could just get a tuner and run the 1152 to be an ideal rig.

Let me know what your ideal setup you are wishing to build would have. Speakers, other gear like CD, tape deck, etc.

I have a Harman Kardon 700 Series amp/pre-amp/tuner system that I want to get repaired ( an HK 770 Twin Torroidal Ultra Wideband DC Amplifier, a matching HK 725 Pre-Amplifier, and a matching HK 710 Tuner)...


This will take a little homework on your part, but parts for this might be available. I don't kow your model well enough to know whether or not the power switch is generically available. Any possibility you can post a picture? Manufacturers are only required to maintain spare parts for 5-7 years after they stop selling that model. If the part is generic enough, other distributors will carry replacements. If all you need is the power switch, you stand a good chance that a replacemetn is available.
Keep me posted,
Dan
