Get a standy killer! I've got one for my lazy children and it works a treat. It senses when there is a low level of electricity going through the socket and cuts the power. Good for electricity bills too! http://www.primrose-london.co.uk/standby-killer-p-5002.html

Try this:

On the top of your remote near the power buttons there are a series of buttons that have names under them such as "TV" and "DVD". Press and hold one of those buttons for about two seconds.

How do I reset my harman/kardon avr 630 receiver ?


See link for users manual. Instructions for Processor Reset are on page 50.

"Processor Reset
In the rare case where the unit's operation or the displays
seem abnormal, the cause may involve the erratic
operation of the system's memory or microprocessor.
To correct this problem, first unplug the unit from the
AC wall outlet and wait at least three minutes. After the
pause, reconnect the AC power cord and check the
unit's operation. If the system still malfunctions, a
system reset may clear the problem.
To clear the AVR 630's entire system memory including
tuner presets, output level settings, delay times and
speaker configuration data, first put the unit in Standby
by pressing the Standby/On Switch1. Next, press
and hold the Surround Mode Group Selector2
and the Tuning Mode Selector8buttons for three
seconds.
The unit will turn on automatically and display the
RESET message in the Upper Display Line #.
NOTE: Resetting the processor will erase any configuration
settings you have made for speakers, output
levels, surround modes, digital input assignments as
well as the tuner presets. After a reset the unit will be
returned to the factory presets, and all settings for
these items must be reentered.
If the system is still operating incorrectly, there may
have been an electronic discharge or severe AC line
interference that has corrupted the memory or
microprocessor.
If these steps do not solve the problem, consult an
authorized Harman Kardon service center."

My Pioneer Receiver VSX-519V has a blinking HDMI light and won't show video.


You guys mentioned the reset via the front panel, and I tried that with this very same issue on my VSX-822-k and it worked!
thought I would post the instructions for anyone else that lands here:
Reset the main unit if the receiver is generally not operating correctly. Switch the receiver into standby mode. Hold down the "BAND" button while pressing the "STANDYBY/ON" button for about two seconds. When "Reset?" appears in the display window, press the "AUTO SURROUND/ STREAM DIRECT" button. "OK?" appears in the display window. Press "STEREO/A.L.C." to confirm. "OK" appears in the window. The system has been reset.

Harman Kardon AVR325 stays in standby mode


Was a solution ever found for this? I have almost the same problem, except that mine makes a horrible sound through the speakers before it shuts off. However, after an attempt or two, mine usually starts working and sounds fine (I love how this thing sounds!). It seems to happen more when I've let it sit for a week or two. When I use it regularly, it usually works fine. It's almost like it knows when I'm about to give in and replace it... because it will start working again! Maybe I just need to make an effort to use it more....

Receiver stays on standby mode


Receiver either just stuck or held or having problem in amplifier output area.
Try to unplug it from AC outlet for couple of minutes and replug back in and power up, if works, fine and if does not, take it to local repair shop as it might requires some parts replacement in amplifier out area.

I have a Pioneer XC-F10 Stereo CD Tuner. I keep trying to turn it on and it keeps turning off immediately...?


I Have managed to solve my instant turning off fault. As its been mentioned before, this is a demo mode fault, heres what I did...

Leave the Unit in standby, and press and hold the "system menu" button you should see the words "demo mode" flash up on the display briefly, at this point press the "set" button to enter demo mode selection finally press the "+" or "-" button to turn the demo mode off.

You have to be quick with the remote buttons when getting into the demo mode, might take a few trys.

I'm not sure if this will fix everyones fault, but certainly helped with mine. Good Luck.

My denon avr-1906 amp will not turn on correctly. When the standby button is pressed the indication surrounding the button flashes green but when you hear the relay click in for presumably the power amp,...


The amp is shutting down to prevent further damage. This is what is sometimes referred to as protect mode. There is a problem with the final stage of the amplifier. The most common parts that fail are the output transistors. Figure on $15-$40 in parts plus the local labor rate for the total repair cost.
