See what connectors you have on TV, easiest way to connect is using RCA or composite. About the sound, connect a surround system to the receiver.

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.

SOURCE: Harman/kardon avr 247 no audio or LED display on the reciever

I've had the exact problem. HK in the states is no help, you need to deal with a company in Montreal (Jan Industries). Regular techs are unable to fix it without schematics that only authorized dealers have and the manufacturer. This problem happened to me just after 2 years and outside warranty. I've bought a Yamaha today.

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.

I have the Harman Kardon AVR 254. Just recently it stopped responding. It will cut on and the volume dial will respond but none of the front panel buttons will. Any suggestions on a fix?


There should be two fuses on the secondary board of the main power transformer. They don't look like regular fuses - they are small round can fuses. These are probably open. HK under-valued these fuses originally, and they need to be replaced with 3.15 amp.

I have a harman kardon avr 745....looks frozen


My device is AVR 645, but AVR 745 has the same power regulator board and you could check, if the problem is there.
(AVR 645 volume blue light was not pulsating)
When device is turned on, it shows all display indicators,
no blue light on volume button and no response to any remote or front panel buttons.
Reason for failure:
No 3.3V and 5VD voltages.
I checked bridge rectifier D701 on power regulator board.
One of the diodes was shorted. Also fuse F702 was blown.
Original D701 is KBU6G, but because regulator board is a bit difficult to get out, I decided to use KBU8G. The only difference is Amps rating 6A versus 8A.
Be sure to use SR-5-3.15A fuse to replace F702 and use heat sink paste (you know where) when board is reinstalled.
There is large heatsink in the middle of the receiver. Power regulator board is mounted on the right side of that heatsink. It is down there near the front panel and to get it out you most probably first have
to remove two PCBs hindering access to some regulator component screws. Here are pictures to clarify situation:

No sound,no video,front panel display will display.harman kardon


Check your audio settings on the main menu of the receiver. The audio input should be set to "auto" Next, make sure you don't have the unit in "6 channel input" mode or "direct" mode. This is usually a small button on the front panel. If you check all this and you still have a problem, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot some more. Hope this helps

Was using the harmon kardon avr 225 receiver and the front panel went out. .... screen display of the channel number, volume, or menu item does not work. ...


Try hooking up a yellow video wire from the back of the AVR 225 Monitor out. Should be at the end of the 7 or 8 yellow video ports on the back of the stereo. Next plug the other end into a yellow video in on a t.v. Get your remote, (Harmon/Kardon) and make sure the t.v. is on the correct video input and hit the OSD(on screen display) button on your harmon remote. There should be a setting in there that says VFD under ADVANCED menu option that allows for turning the front of your stereo lights on and off and dimming them half way also. OFF/HALF/FULL are the 3 options I believe.

If this doesnt solve it your display may have crapped out on you.
