Hello, I've got a HK receiver/ amplifier avr 5550

Hello, I've got a HK receiver/ amplifier avr 5550 with original remote control. Somehow i can just use the remote when i am standing 1 meter away from the receiver! so i cant use it sitting on the couch. I allso have an HK DVD player wich i can controll with the same remote and this works perfectly even from 5 metres. So the problem seems to be in the receiver/amplifier. can you tell me if this can be fixed? I am a technical person so i can replace parts myself but i have to know what part and where to find it

SOURCE: learning remote codes for my harmon kardon avr354

a) Place the two remotes so that their IR transmitters face each other
end to end, separated by about one inch. The
AVR 354 remote’s transmitter also serves as an IR receiver during
the learning process.– AVR 354 and Original Remote Head-to-Head

b) Press the Source Selector for the device mode you wish to learn
a code into, and place the AVR 354 remote in Learning mode by
pressing and holding the Learn Button until the Source Selector lights
up, then release.

Learning Remote Commands

c) Press the button on the AVR 350 remote you wish to program with
the new code, and the Source Selector will flash once. You may
learn a new code into the following buttons: Device Power On/Off,
Alphanumeric Keys, Last Button, Back/Exit Button, Menu Button, Navigation Buttons, OK Button, Disc Menu Button,
the four Teletext Buttons, Channel Up/Down, Volume Up/Down,
Mute and the Transport Controls (including Record).

d) Press and hold the button on the device’s original remote whose
code you wish to “learn” until the Source Selector flashes three
times, then release.

e) You may program additional buttons by repeating steps c) and d).
Press the Learn Button once to exit Learning mode, or wait for the
remote to “time out” and exit Learning mode on its own after about
30 seconds.

SOURCE: power on but nothing else

My DVD22 did exactly the same. The solution mentioned by shelompidid not apply to me since my model already had the fix factory fitted.

The other problem mentioned on page 21 of the service manual did the trick for me, although the complaint does not seem to be directly relavant:

"Complaint: Will Not Read Disc; Other Functions May Be Disabled
See h/k service bulletins HK2004-03 and HK2005-02, as the issues covered there involve similar
symptoms.
Probable Cause: EC19 and EC20 (1000μf 16v capacitors) may be defective in the power supply. This can be checked by measuring the +3.3v and +5v voltages that are associated with EC19, 20 to see if they are low (more than 0.1v low). The SPMS output voltages are marked on the PCB adjacent to the large 13 pin header. While there is only one 3.3v pin, there are several +5v pins, and care should be taken to measure the correct one(s), which are either two +5v pins approximately in the center of the header.

I could actually see on the power supply board that these two caps were damaged, although they were not completely popped. An additional cap which was damaged on my board was EC4.

When I measured the voltages the middle D +5V was reading about 4,6V. I did not expect a problem until I read the statement above on page 21 stating it should not be low by more than 0,1V. My A+14 and A-14 voltages also read about +/-17 to +/-18V.

I replaced all three caps: EC4, EC19 and EC20 with 25V caps instead of 16V caps. The voltage for D +5V now read exactly 5,01V! The A+/-14 read +/-16V (some improvement).

My unit is operating fine after replacing these 3 caps! I suspect that the damage to the caps could have been spikes on the AC suppy some stage, maybe due to lightning. Pretty amazing that only the power supply have damage and not the main pcb.

SOURCE: Harman Kardon AVR 500: randomly accelerates volume levels.

The problem is with the actual eltromechanical element on the volume control, my avr 300 does this as well and I'll let you know the secret to avoiding it. There are small indents on the volume control as you turn it, if you leave it half way between indents, it will periodically start reading volume changes, if you're lucky it will go down, if you're unlucky by the time you've noticed it act up your speakers are blown. When you change the volume, make sure the control rests in an indent and the problem will never crop up again. A simple solution if you're the only one that uses the receiver.

SOURCE: HK AVR-247 protect mode

This is an indication of an internal problem. Typically this is shorted output transistors. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range for this repair.

My Cox HD/DVR controller will turn off but will not turn on my new HKAVR1700 using the AUX button on the Cox supplied URC-8820-Cisco remote.


This is a documented problem with the Harmon/Kardon AVR-1700 and the Cox remote. Here's how I solved it. On the HK1700, go to System Settings and turn on HDMI Link. This will allow your TV (if it has the feature) to put the HK in standby mode when you power down the TV. Go to your setting on your TV and turn on HDMI link, or equivalent. I have a Sony TV and the setting is called "Control For HDMI." Then, use code 0110 for your Cox remote. This code will only turn on the HK, not turn it off. BUT, the HDMI Link should put the HK into standby.

How can i make the sky remote control th avr 130 (harmon kardon)


Does the sky remote have a code for the HK receiver? If it does, use that code to program it. Most other remotes won't work completely because this receiver uses a seperate button to turn it off...

Harmony remote with Harmon Kardon receiver


HK AVR 347-I took it back- everyone was frustrated and the verdict was that it just doesn't work. I have a Dennon now and it doesn't sound as good as the HK but it works most of the time. Not sure it the Harmony is the problem. I'm reading the Dennon manual now and it seems the Dennon remote can do what the Harmony is trying to do. Harmony support is awesome and we'll keep trying. Sooo- was there a trick to it?

Remote control for this model AVR 1802 is failed to work , i want spare


Many original remotes are exspensive and hard to get hold of , Radio Shack or Maplins have many universal remotes that not only will allow you to control your AVR 1802 but many other devices you have also ... at probably half the price . ... regards Vortash
