Question about Harman Multimedia AVR 745 Receiver
I was upgrading to the newer firmware and while downloading the upgrade to my Receiver the computer froze halfway to the update. Had to rreboot the PC and turn on the receiver again however all I get now is standby mode with no display. Tried resetting Reciever but only powers up to standby mode.
Is there hope or am I doomed...warranty is expired.
Power off using the main power button behind the door for 10 seconds. Turn the unit back on and place in standby (amber power light). Press and hold the "SUR MODE" and "TUN MODE" buttons and the same time until the unit resets itself. You should be good to go after that.

I have done an update in the past/ ONE Thing/ you do not attempt to do an update at the same time you download the firmware update.
You always download the update/ Open/ Read the instruction and follow them as directed.
An Yes/ it is possible that you might be doomed/ but I would go back/ Download the update with out being connected to the reciever/ Open the download/ Make a folder for it to uncompresse to. Choose that folder when prompted as to where it is sent when uncompressing.
Then go to that folder and READ EVERYTHING FIRST. There is a folder in there that is named to read first.
Once you have read it/ you will see that it is easy to do/ and see your mistake.
I believe that if you try it again, (even though your reciever info is screwed up) it will take the full update.
Sorry about the caps/ I am not trying to yell or what every they say about caps. It just is really important to read everything first. If you don't think you understand what you read/ Read it untill you do understand it. Do more research until you do.
