That is most likely an amplifier driver transistor that has failed.

Table of Contents errors can be the result of bad compact disk, bad laser or the head cannot get into position to read the TOC, Make sure that the new laser is aligned correctly and that the head has no obstructions at either end of the rails. Last but not least you may want to make sure the laser is working and you can check that by using a camera like the one on your cell phone, With the cover off, insert a cd in the drive and have your camera pointed at the area of the laser. You should see the laser light on your camera.

Its a blue relay, with 4 posts. 2 for collapse thru an one negative one positive. That control open and close to relay. Imagine a relay like a swing open gate, When it's open nothing can flow through it when it's closed something can flow through it what you have is something causing that relay to open and close I'm not sure without a schematic what that blew relay is on the board if it's a safety Shunt For whatever but I have one in my hand right now doing the same identical thing. With Alice kamatik I can't track it I'm pretty sure it's every mode on relay or a safety relay not sure exactly without a schematic.

turn the sub upsidedown, carefully remove the clear rubber feet (these are a dome fitted over a mushroom top), using the toothed gripper cutout of a pair of pliers (when closed it is the eye shaped opening visible on one side), grip the mushroom firmly but not so hard as to crush the mushroom and gently ease clockwise and anticlockwise (the mushroom is at one end of a clear plug blocking access to the four screws that hold the two parts together.
Be carefull to use the correct size screwdriver so as not to damage the screw heads as they are tight.
On reassembly, you may need to use glue to replace the rubber feet if the mushroom becames damages during removal.

I believe he avr-5 has 6 channel inputs, what you will need is a dolby digital 5.1 and DTS outboard surround sound processor, say an item as the Technics SH-AC500 decoder, a Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 DTS version outboard processor/preamp, and many others on the market by different manufactors, Run the discrete audio outputs from the Processor into the AVR 5`s 6 channel inputs, select 6 channel input or DVD inputs on the receivers selector and your good to go. Be sure you are playing Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS encoded material.

You can remove the grill in front of the speakers by using 2 mini mini screw driver one to pry it out little by little while the other to hold it from going back in .There are noscrews holding the grill.They are held by 4 clamps which are the grill inner end bend abit out thats all. So if you pry it will give way not to worry the grill is made of a hard aluminium material it just needs care in order not to scratch the paint surface and aluminium ring around it,use a soft cloth to protect the ring when prying.Remember this aluminium ring wont come out its only the grey grill that will. This thing is worth saving because it sounds great even after speaker repair.Yes where i am in Idonesia there are people who are profesionals at repairing speakers that are torn out like our harman.(torn due to age around the speaker cone).i paid 15 usd to get the both of them repaired and its the best 15 dollars i have ever spent.Cause now it could not have sounded any newer the bass is back the balance is pure harman again

I finally solved the problem. I unscrewed the cover, and found NO apparent malfunctioning parts. After a couple weeks, I took the unit to an electronics recycling event in my neighborhood, after I first cut off the power cord. I kept the screws to the cover, and will use them for a decorative craft project. I am now saving up for a REAL LP to CD unit, from a REAL manufacturer.

Can you post an image of the back of the receiver? As the previous answer said, you will probably have to use the R,G,B, Phono connectors on the rear of the TV. You can also get adapters that can allow you to use phono leads to a scart connector on the rear of the TV.
