    I have the same problem. When I turn the unit on it flashes TOC SVC-1 and then some different array of numbers come up in the screen and the left side cd-tray makes some noise. I haven't used it much since I bought it - is it worth fixing?

Mine has done that a lot. I put a towel over the unit to keep it warm and turn it on for a day or so, then turn it off then back on and it has worked well for me several times. It is some kind of a heat problem.

Hey guys - WE have a place here thats not one of their factory authorized repair stores - but they are trained in harman kardan issues.... SVC - 1 is similar to a circuit breaker - if there is a problem inside, is shuts the machine down so that it doesnt do any further damage.. -The name of the place is Electronics hospital in Burlington Vt.  A litle closer than CA. mine is there now.  if you want a phone number or any other info let me iknow

Hey SteveLah, I have the same problem - looked in manual - that means it needs service - spoke to Harmon Kardon - the only place that is still set up to potentially fix this problem is in California - I am in NY - apparently a certain kind of jig is needed and no one else has anymore....I am going to call the place in California back to see what they charge - but I am afraid the whole thing could cost a bunch - but I love this machine.

    Hey spec-ed,


    I found that when I turn mine off for a while - maybe even a day - and then back on - sometimes it works again for a short period of time and will let you open up the drawers to get your cds out - otherwise I am afraid you may have to take the top off.

LG ADR 620,Won`t record or play.

Mine keeps doing this. It isn't a disc compatibility problem. I find if I switch the machine off completely for about half an hour and then switch it back on the problem fixes itself.

How do I record on my Harman Karman I can't remember?

Put a blank cd in the right deck; put the one you are recording from in the left deck. Close door. Punch dub.. after it scan all the tracks, then punch play/select on the right hand side, then it will dub it for you. Once it gets thru dubbing; hit finalize - lights blink twice, then hit finalize again. once lights go out it's finished dubbing and you can play it back to hear your recording...

Blank cds don't work

Are you using cds labeled music? These are formatted for cd audio home recorders. Data cds for computers will not work. If in doubt, usually on the packaging it states for home audio.

You need to clean the laser lense, if that doesn't work you need a new laser pickup. Check first, but from memory you need a sanyo sfp151 17 pin laser. Costs around $25.
