Question about Harman Kardon AVR 335 Receiver

1 Answer

Not fixed. Hi, Replacing the fusible resistors didn't work; the current is just too much and they would keep blowing. The (auxiliary?) transformer seems to work; 17VAC on the two pins for the resistors. Could it be the 15V voltage regulators? (LM7815 & LM7915) Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks! btw, there are two more 0.47 ohm resistors on the same board that are for something else that I don't know of. The transformer output for these is 10VAC.

    Hi embrod,

    You are absolutely correct; one of the ceramic disc caps shorted. I took it out but never replaced it since i didn't know the capacity and voltage rating. Do you think these would do?

    (If the link doesn't work, it's Kemet C323C104M1U5HA at Mouser)

    As for the schematic, it would help tremendously if you could send it to me. Are you able to email it? If so, my email adress is simply my fixya user name at

    I was given this 3-month-old receiver for free last year and it just seems like a shame that it becomes worthless to someone who doesn't know that a 5-cent capacitor is the culprit.

    It was nice of you to post a solution. Thank you so much for your help!

I know that a couple of you have had the same problem with the blowing 0.47 ohm resistors. I had responded quite a wile back, but forgot to make any updates. Kostiko is correct about the problem relating to these two 0.47 ohm resistors being blown. In my case on two different Haman Kardon models, this was true, but there could also be another issue. What i have found is even after replacing these resistors, the problem appeared to still be there. What was happening was that right after turning the receiver on, the resistors would blow again. What you need to do is replace the two small ceramic disc style capacitors on the same pcb as the fusible resistors, as they could be shorted as in my case. You could remove these capacitors completely, or replace them with a similar size of the same type, as they are really just there for filtering higher frequency noises from the power supply. You can check them with your multimeter first. They shouldn't shorted even in situe. I forget the size, but they are approximately 100 nano farads. Good luck. I have done this to my AVR135, and it has been running great for about 6 months now.

Your voltage measurements for the resistors are correct. The regulators should be fine. Remember that the pins that you are checking come before the regulators. I would double check these capacitors that I am referring to. Do you have the schematic for this? If you need it I have a copy. The transformer has multiple taps coming off of it. You cam check the other resistors, but I'm sure that they will be fine. I suspect the caps.

    hello can you please tell me are these caps on the board connected to the transformer?? i have no sound from an avr230 and it shuts off pretty quick. thank you for your help

    thank you, i am replacing the .47 ohm fusible resistors and the cap c109 .1uf 50v. i have found that the resistors are blown and the cap runs between these 2 17v lines and is probably shorted. newark had the items, had to order qty 8 of the .47ohm 1w. hk part # are krq1ajr47h & ccft1h104zf cap. they could be ordered from hk. i am wondering if i should also replace c107 & c108 .01uf caps that are on these lines? i am hoping this is all for my avr230

    Actually, the main reason why the resistors keep blowing is the three large capacitors (on the Aux Power Supply board located on the heat sink) are getting dry or in short. Replace them with a higher temperature ratings ones (try 80C) and this would solve your problem. Unfortunately, you`ll have to remove the whole boards (not the main one) and the back plate to be able to access/remove the culprit board. And you will need a very long Phillips screwdriver.

    Good luck

Keep blowing the 140amp fusible link on the battery fuse box? Can anyone help with this problem?

There is obviously a short circuit somewhere but you omitted to say whether it is constant or intermittent or whether the link blows instantly or whether there is any delay.

The fusible link supplies current to a lot of circuits and the best chance of discovering which is to refer to a wiring diagram.

There are new technology electronic tools available to help in the location of electrical short and open circuits but a deal of detective work is still likely to be needed.

If the short is constant a cure will be fairly straightforward although could be a deal of work. No point in keep replacing the link until there is a cure. I find a spare micro circuit breaker from a domestic consumer unit will allow testing after each circuit has been disconnected without the steady drain on finances. Fitting a large wattage bulb is an alternative. When the bulb goes out the fault is found...

If the short is intermittent only persistence, luck and detective work is likely to prevail.

I suggest beginning by checking or disconnecting all none-standard accessories...

Auxiliary power outlet doesn't work. Checked the fuses everything seems fine

Although you did not specify how you checked the fuses, I surmise you used either a light tester at the fuse panel or an ohm meter, since visual inspections can be deceiving.

I will safely guess that this auxiliary power outlet works whether the ignition key is turned on or off and that you checked for voltage while the ignition key was turned in any position, just the same...

In as much as there is a fuse box in the cabin compartment of the car, there is a power distribution panel inside the engine compartment that contains fuses too...and they were checked(?)

I would check for continuity between the pin (base of the socket) and the ground (walls of the socket.) If there is no continuity, most likely the fusible link built-in to the socket- melted as a result of high current draw.

A fusible link is placed within the circuit of the socket itself, for wiring protection, so that you don't damage any other component that's wired on the same circuit (and/or cause a fire in the wiring harness due to the high current draw.)...and you don't necessarily have to blow a fuse at the box or at the distribution panel to have a power loss at the auxiliary power outlet's socket.

Other possibilities to consider, the wires to the socket could have oxidized, frayed; loosened; broke or become disconnected; or the socket itself could be damaged and gone bad (i.e- the fusible link.)

You can also have a break in the wires somewhere else down the line and not at the outlet's socket itself.

My turns signals and Heater blower just went out completely - Cabin fuses look OK - Suspect fusible link in engine compartment fuse box

Its faulty blower motor resistor. The low and medium speed on blower motor is controlled by resistor and its actual speed is high. So because resistor is not working, blower motors actual speed which is high is working.

It can be faulty blower motor or faulty blower motor resistor. Get the blower motor inspected. If it's faulty it has to be replaced.


For blower motor testing and replacing, check the link below: ----

Soundcraft GIGRAC 600 pre-amp power supply keep blowing the low valve resistor 1ohm. they are the resistor just before the bridge rectifier, for the low voltage feed. Once resistors replaced the unit...

The resistor is acting as a fuse and will continue to blow until you fix the REAL problem. LIKELY the filter capacitor(s) beyond the bridge rectifier are failing. One needs to use test equipment to measure the current through the resistor and see if it is reasonable. The capacitors can heal briefly and then start to short. One should also check the rectifier in operation with an oscilloscope as one diode could intermittently short.

check your horizontal transistor maybe it's shorted replace horizontal transistor or maybe the fusible fuses are open check for open resistors at the horizontal section of the circuit.

Heater only blow on number 4 and heat coming out

You don't list the vehicle your asking about but in general when the blower motor only works on the high speed the blower resistors have blown. The resistors are what control the fan speed, when they go bad only high will work. The resistors blowing is usually a side effect of a blower motor going bad, pulling too much current. When replacing the resistors it's advisable to replace the blower motor as well so as not to have a repeat problem.

Harmon Kardon AVR 230 produces no sound and no monitor out.

you do not have +17v and -17v on transformer board the top two fusible resistors are blown and the cap between them needs to be replaced as this cap probably shorted and caused resistors to blow. easy fix

Still no picture, but there is sound

If you are getting static on screen you dont necessarily rule out the FBT, but if there is a fusible resistor by the FBT that is blowing it may be supplying current to the vert IC, the IC may be shorted internally or externally, check your connections and try replacing IC. Also check the pump up cap and if it is powered off the FBT the rectifier diode.

KV- 32V40 Fusible resistor always blow-up

hey...glad im not the only one in this mess....thank god i have an electronics background as i my offer some help. i found that Q601/Q602 were shorted,replaced with NTE2582 transistors, but also there is another fusible resistor located next ti the transformer on the powersupply board(board G i believe)same as the other(1/4-1/2 watt .1-.15 omhs)well i thought all was well until i pluged it in and both fusible resistors and the transistors blew right away....led me to the H-OUT transistor, right next to the flyback, on the main board...sure enough it was shorted as well. that part is 2SC5148(not the NTE part #), , and will put it in after work tommorow...looks good so far and will, even with my mistake will cost several hundred dollars less than taking it to a tv shop...and thousands less that the plasma screen the wife wants....this 32inch has been good to me for 9 years, and im going to help it along for another if possible. you cant email me at if youd like.....thanks and good luck
