View Full Version : HELP with HK AVR-230

Just bought this receiver today and when i turn it on the LED indicator stays Orange rather than blue as indicated by the manual (Tried from Receiver and remote to turn it on).

Is the unit faulty ?

P.S The recevier is not connected to anything and tried connecting speakers + equip to it but it won't budge.

This is my first time with recievers

Are you turning off the unit and unplugging the power before connecting the speakers? HK receivers don't like plugging things in when on. Actually that's really bad practice, anyhow, but the HK's have a protection circuit that is triggered when you do that so it may need to be rebooted (see the back of the manual for instructions).

Thanks nightflier
i've connected speakers only when powered down, but my other siblings might have connected while on.
doesn't matter since i've never seen it work
only that orange led all the time

I've read the manual and it only has parts about processor reset and remote reset and tried them both
were you reffering to those ?
if not, can you tell me how to reset the protection circuit ?
