Disconnect speakers and wires. Bad wiring or defective speakers may be loading the amp down and causing the protection circuits inside to disconnect (no sound). If the HK is heating up (beyond what you perceive as normal) with no wires or speakers connected then you have a problem requiring expert repair.

Where are the fuses in the harman kardon 3380 receiver, I had a lightning strike which I think knocked out my receiver thru my outdoor speakers, it will not turn on, could it be a fuse and if yes, where is...


Hello Randy,
There are two options here: first, the power button is amber but unit still won't go. In this case try a 'factory reset' as per manual. If this won't work, it seems that the processor is gone (located on the display board) so you have to bring your unit into a authorized shop for repairs. Secondly, it might be just matter of some blown fuses which are located inside the unit on the transformer board. If after replacing (if they're blown) the unit still won't work or keeps blowing the new fuses, follow the first advice, meaning you have to bring the receiver to a service. To access the fuses, you have to remove the top cover.I wish you luck

Fiber Optic input


No gots. The 3485 is pre-digital stereo-only.

From the manual, page 19

"You may have observed that the HK 3485 is not equipped with digital audio inputs or surround sound decoding. If you prefer the complete home theater experience, you may wish to consider purchasing a fullfeatured Harman Kardon AVR Series audio/video receiver. However, we hope you will find that using a DVD player with the HK 3485 in smaller settings, such as a bedroom or den, surpasses the audio performance of most televisions, including those with onboard stereo speakers."

I have an Harman kardon receiver (avr 310) it only plays in left and rigth speaker with surround off . I try everything to make it work in other but it can't .


Surround only works from a surround source such as Pro Logic.
If you are useing a regular stereo source with surround off, the sound will come only from L/R speakers (and sub woofer if used)
