Question about Harman Kardon AVR 230 Receiver

1 Answer

Tuner trouble I have AVR 230 that has been trouble free. Recently the am/fm tuner became unreliable. Sometime you get a signal sometimes you don't. I have a good antenna. What's up? I have read the amnual and tried every setting I can imagine. I even hit the reset button on the AVR. It seems to have a mind of it's own. The local service tech is oveer 30 miles away. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the solution. Are you saying that the fix for this problem could cost more than the $450 price of a new unit?

This reciver has an RF FET front end. Most manuafacturers use a tuner assembly built by another company. These front ends on these tuner assemblies do go bad from time to time, and sometimes is caused by excessive static electricity. The cost to replace and or repair this front end assembly, will most likly exceed the cost of a new unit, unless you really like it. What I have seen a few people do is buy an inexpensive reciver or tuner, and use one of the unused inputs to play the AM/FM through the reciver that does not work on the tuning. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.

I can't seem to get the tuner to work on my Denon AVR 2803 receiver.

It can't hurt.

You will lose all your settings though. So you'll have to set the amp up again from scratch.

Before you do initialise, let's just check.... You plugged in a FM or AM aerial, right?

Why does my avr 100 say OPTI.when i try to play the radio, and no sound comes out

It is trying to input a signal via the Optical digital input. You need to switch the input control on the front panel or remote to Analog.

Hi, I have a Harman Kardon AVR 300 that I picked up at a local sale. When I power it on, it switches fine to each input except the AM/FM tuner (the preset, tuning, & tuner mode buttons don't seem to...

Hello Sir, Hi, you may try the following
  1. try cleaning the switches
  2. if this does no solve the problem, its the selector circuit. this may be digital, so you need to search the IC that selects the FM mode both with tuning. this is fair complicated.
  3. buy a cheap separate FM tuner, run it on auxiliary input.

My harman kardon avr 110 will not play thru the fm. what do I need to hook up to make it work?

It's a RECEIVER, meaning the FM tuner is built-in. That's the only source you don't have to 'hook up'. But you DO have to make sure NO OTHER source is selected.

You don't say if it actually TUNES a station or not. Try an antenna.

How good is fm tuner reception? We live approx 50 miles from transmitters and have trouble getting clear signals. Is Bose just good sound quality, or does tuner provide superior reception?

I live in Vail Az about 110-120 miles from Phoenix Az I can pick up 60% of the stations decent. The power cord acts as a fm antenna. Plus this Bose Wave CD/MP3/FM

Trouble with Tuner 2

From experience, I suspect that the dish has lost it's optimum "focus" on the satellites, and your signal has dropped. In your case, tuner #2 just happens to need a little more signal than tuner #1 - and that's revealing the root problem.

If you can have a second person handy, use the signal meter function and view the signal. Then one person should move the dish a bit (likely upward a hair). If the signal goes up with just the slight movement of the still tight dish, that's the problem.

If so, it's time to align the dish.
