Question about Harman Kardon AVR 7000

1 Answer

Volume increases rapidly without warning

I have a Harmon Kardon AVR 7000. I had this problem with the original unit I bought over two years ago. This occurred within a couple of months and the unit was replaced under warranty. It has now happened again with the second unit, which has worked fine until now. Is this a known issue with this receiver?

    I have the same problem. My volume raises it's self on it's own. It is 7 or so years old so perhaps it's a circitry issue. I've never had the problem until now. Noticed it when I was playing a game on the PS3. But before that I was always hearing random breaks in my sound whiule watching TV and though it was my cable box making the noises. Perhaps the two are related to long term use and wear and tear. Does anyone have an answer?

    I have the AVR 7000 as well with the same issue.  The volume increase rapidly every few months and has occurred for at least three years now.  Any suggestions by anyone would be great.

I have the Harman Kardon AVR 254. Just recently it stopped responding. It will cut on and the volume dial will respond but none of the front panel buttons will. Any suggestions on a fix?

There should be two fuses on the secondary board of the main power transformer. They don't look like regular fuses - they are small round can fuses. These are probably open. HK under-valued these fuses originally, and they need to be replaced with 3.15 amp.

I have a Harmon Kardon AVR2500, i want to connect my LP to the AMP, how is this done? Will there be variation in the sound out put.

Yes! there will, if the AVR2500 does not have phono inputs, the output sound will be barely there even at high volume. The solution is to find a phono preamp, Radio Shack use to sell them years ago. I suggest you try and type phono preamp.

Hi if there is an optical out on the television i would use that direct to your Harmon Kardon AVR 125, the sound would be in sync with picture, as the source is the same.

Fiber optics input not working

you will likely have to access the harmon kardon setup menu and direct the fiber input you are using toward the video or audio source selection which is being utilized along with it

Harmon Kardon AVR 235 no sound

Ensure that your speakers are connected to the terminals that you have your speaker selector switch turned to.
Then check that you have your device, whether it be a CD or DVD player, or turntable, plugged into the correct input and that you also have the correct input selected on the receiver.

Need starchoice codes for Karman Kardon AVR 220

Look here for the codes to whatever remote you have. The chances are there arent any though. Harmon Kardon codes are a very unique signal that most remotes cant duplicate. More than likely you are going to have to use the original Harmon Kardon remote.
