SOURCE: Volume control unresponsive

The LED didn't turn on ,indicate the DC pwr was missing , you need to ensure there is a Dc supply to the speaker unit,once you got the LED on you will be able to control the volum.

SOURCE: my harmon/kardon speakers do not work

You seem to have uninstalled the driver for your soundcard, Identify the soundcard and find the drivers and install it back (Easier option is to get in touch with your hardware manufacturer) - Alternately : you can do a system restore to a date when it was working well. (on WinXP - Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore)

SOURCE: harmon/kardon computer speakers not working, light on, no sound

Hello frostyscoppe & micoh luv. I'm sorry to say that (like mine) they may have just 'packed in'! I had the same problem and contacted Harmon Kardon directly, They said there was a circuitry problem that couldn't be repaired and suggested I get the latest HK IIs. So I did and found these to be much more versatile and worth upgrading to. I thought my 'old' HDs were fine but sadly things aren't made to last like they used to be!!! If someone else is able to 'rescue' your originals I'd be very interested to hear their suggestions.

SOURCE: harmon kardon hk695-01,13 - Intermittent "gargling" noise

the noise is sometimes caused by dust in the volume control.
i would suggest blowing the dust out around the volume control if there is a manual control on the unit. use a small can of compressed air.. buy it at local walmart or computer store.

SOURCE: Older Harman Kardon computer speakers have loud hum

The hum (50 or 60 Hz) is caused by the AC power getting into the entry point of the amplifier. Either the filtering capacitors from the powersource of the speakers have dried up - replace them - or there is a short in the cables.
There is another possibility: if you have kicked the subwoofer  box its transformer might have slipped from its fixings and now is touching the subwoofer speaker frame.
The only way to find which is to open the cases.

I want to connect my old Sony turntable to my Harmon Kardon AVR130 but whatever I do the volume is very low and I cannot get it working. Any idea how to solve this issue?

If your turntable is old, it probably does not have a built in amplifier. You might want to purchase a pre-amp to boost the signal a bit before it goes into the receiver.

No Sound

Try pressing the volume up button on the right-hand speaker. These units often mute themselves if the power is removed and need to be un-muted by pressing the up volume button.

Avr 35 volume control

Are you using the two small silver touch + and - controls that are set close to the bottom of one sound stick? They are very discrete and easily missed. (I did at first.)

Harmon Speaker distortion

Hi, I came across a similar problem with an old Altec and the the solution was to only replace the defective side. Actually, what was replaced was only the speaker itself inside the enclosure which was cheaper rather than replacing the entire assembly. An electronics technician (not necessarily a computer tech) can do the job since some soldering might be involved.
