Introduction

Please register your product on our Web site at www.harmankardon.com.

Note: You’ll need the product’s serial number. At the same time, you can choose to be notified about our new products and/or special promotions.

Thank You for Choosing Harman Kardon® Products!

In the years since harman kardon engineers invented the high-fidelityreceiver, we have taken to heart this philosophy: Bringing the joy of home entertainment to as many people as possible, adding performance andease-of-usefeatures that enhance the experience. The BDS series of home entertainment systems offers a complete home entertainment solution with a wealth of listening and viewing options in one sleek receiver. Each BDS series system also includes a5.1-channel,2.1-channelor soundbar loudspeaker system, a system remote control and all the cables and accessories you need to enjoy movies and music in your own home, when you use them with your television or video display.

To get the maximum enjoyment from your new BDS system, we urge you to read this manual thoroughly and refer back to it as you become more familiar with your new system’s features and their operation.

If you have any questions about this product, its installation or its operation, please contact your retailer or custom installer, or visit the Harman Kardon Web site at www.harmankardon.com.

Verify Line Voltage Before Using

Your BDS receiver has been designed for use with 110 – 240-volt,50Hz/60Hz AC current. Your subwoofer has been designed for use with either120-volt,60Hz or 220 –240-volt,50/60Hz AC current, depending on where your system was sold. The receiver includes a detachable IEC power cable designed for use in the region where the system is sold.

Connection to a line voltage other than that for which the units are intended can create a safety and fire hazard and may damage the units. If you have any questions about the

voltage requirements for your specific model or about the line voltage in your area, contact your dealer before plugging the unit into a wall outlet.

Unpacking

The carton and shipping materials used to protect your new receiver during shipment were specially designed to cushion it from shock and vibration. We suggest that you save the carton and packing materials for use in shipping if you move or if the unit ever needs repair.

To minimize the size of the carton in storage, you may wish to flatten it. You can do it by carefully slitting the tape seams on the carton’s bottom and collapsing it. You can store cardboard inserts in the same manner. Packing materials that cannot be collapsed should be saved along with the carton in a plastic bag.

If you do not wish to save the packaging materials, please note that the carton and other sections of the shipping-protectionmaterials are recyclable. Please respect the environment and discard those materials at a local recycling center.

Remove the protective plastic film from the front-panellens. Leaving the film in place will affect the performance of your remote control.

Installation Location

tTo ensure proper operation and to avoid the potential for safety hazards, place the unit on a firm and level surface. When placing the unit on a shelf, be certain that the shelf and any mounting hardware can support the weight of the product.

tProvide proper space both above and below the unit for ventilation. If this product will be installed in a cabinet or other enclosed area, make certain that there is sufficient air movement within the area. Under some circumstances, a fan may be required.

tDo not place the unit directly on a carpeted surface.

tAvoid installation in extremely hot or cold locations, or in an area that is exposed to direct sunlight or heating equipment.

tAvoid moist or humid locations.

tDo not obstruct the ventilation slots on the top and sides of the unit or place objects directly over or next to them.

tDo not place the receiver directly on top of a product that generates excessive heat.

tDue to the heat generated by the receiver and other components in your system, there is the remote possibility that the rubber padding on the bottom of the unit’s feet may leave marks on certain wood or wood-veneermaterials. Use caution when placing the unit

on soft woods or other materials that heat or heavy objects may damage. Some surface finishes may be particularly sensitive to absorbing such marks, due to a variety of factors beyond harman kardon control, including the nature of the finish, cleaning materials used, normal heat and vibration caused by the use of the product, or other factors. Your warranty will not cover this type of damage to furniture, so exercise caution in choosing an installation location for the component and in performing normal maintenance practices.

tYour new harman kardon Blu-rayDisc™ player requires a broadband Internet connection forBD-Live™interactivity.

Cleaning

receiver

When the unit gets dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft, dry cloth. If necessary, and only after unplugging the AC power cord, wipe it with a soft cloth dampened with mild soapy water, then a fresh cloth with clean water. Wipe it dry immediately with a dry cloth. NEVER use benzene, aerosol cleaners, thinner, alcohol or any other volatile cleaning agent. Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they may damage the finish of metal parts. Avoid spraying insecticide near the unit.

Speakers and Subwoofer

When needed, use a soft cloth to remove any fingerprints or dust from the enclosures or grilles. NOTE: Do not use any cleaning products or polishes on the enclosures or grilles.

Moving the Receiver

Before moving the receiver, disconnect any interconnection cords to other components, and disconnect the unit from its AC outlet.

NOTE: Thebuilt-inBlu-rayDisc/DVD player in your BDS receiver is designed and manufactured for compatibility with region management information that is encoded on mostBlu-rayDisc recordings and DVD recordings:

tBDS receivers sold in the USA are designed only for playback of discs with BluRay Disc Region Code A and DVD Region Code 1 information, or for discs that do not contain any region code information.

tBDS receivers sold in Europe are designed only for playback of discs withBlu-rayDisc Region Code B and DVD Region Code 2 information, or for discs that do not contain region code information.

If there is a Region Code on a disc other than the one your BDS player is designed for, it will not play in your BDS receiver.

NOTE: See the Connections section, on page 14, for detailed information about making connections.

AC Power Connector: After you have made and verified all other connections, plug the supplied AC power cord into this input and into an unswitched AC outlet.

Main Power Switch: This mechanical switch turns the BDS receiver’s power supply on or off. After you have made and verified all connections (see theConnections section, on page 14), set this switch in the On position. During normal use you will usually leave this switch set to On; it cannot be turned on or off using the remote control. To conserve energy when you’re not going to be using the receiver for an extended period of time, set this switch to Off.

Speaker Connectors: Use the speaker wires supplied with the speakers to connect the satellite and center speakers to the proper terminals.

tThe BDS 5 receiver (shown) has connections for five speakers: front left, front right, surround left, surround right and center.

tThe BDS 2 receiver (not shown) has connections for two speakers: front left and front right.

See Connections, on page 14, for more information.

Subwoofer Output: Use the supplied mono RCA audio cable (with the purple connectors) to connect this jack to the subwoofer’sLine-LevelIn LFE jack. SeeConnecting the Subwoofer, on page 16, for more details about making connections.

BD-Live Connector: To be able to use theBD-Livefeature, connect this port to your local area network (LAN) using a Cat. 5/Cat.5e/RJ-45network cable. SeeBD-Live Interactivity, on page 26, for details.

Optical Digital Inputs: Connect the optical digital output of anaudio-onlysource component here. The signal may be a Dolby® Digital bitstream, a DTS® bitstream or a standard PCMdigital-audiobitstream.

NOTE: Use only one type of digital connection for each source component.

Coaxial Digital Input: Connect the coaxial digital output of anaudio-onlysource component here. The signal may be a Dolby Digital bitstream, a DTS bitstream or a standard PCMdigital-audiobitstream.

NOTE: Use only one type of digital connection for each source component.

HDMI Output (HDMI ver. 1.3a): Connect the BDS receiver’s HDMI output to your TV’s HDMI input. Since the HDMI cable transmits both video and audio to the TV, we recommend that you set the receiver’s HDMI audio output to Off in the receiver’s Audio menu to take full advantage of your BDS system’s superior audio performance. SeeAudio Settings, on page 21, for more information.

IMPORTANT: Your BDS receiver is in compliance with HDCP (High-DefinitionCopy Protection). Your TV must also beHDCP-compliantto be used with the BDS receiver’s HDMI output. For best results, we do not recommend HDMI connections in excess of ten feet (about 3 meters) without a repeater. If your TV has a DVI input, you may use an optionalHDMI-to-DVIcable or adapter for the video connection to the TV. (The DVI connection isvideo-only.)

Analog Audio Inputs 1 and 2: Use these inputs to connect to anaudio-onlysource component (such as a tape deck). Do not connect a turntable to these jacks without a phono preamp.

The Bridge IIIP Connector: Connect The Bridge IIIP iPod/iPhone dock (available separately) to this terminal.

FM Antenna Connector: Connect the supplied FM antenna to this terminal.

Phase Switch: This switch determines whether the subwoofer driver’spiston-likeaction moves in and out in phase with the satellite speakers. If the subwoofer were to play out of phase with the satellite speakers, the sound waves produced by the subwoofer could be cancelled out, reducing bass performance and sonic impact. This phenomenon depends in part on the relative placement of all the speakers in the room.

Although in most cases the Phase switch should be left in the “Normal” position, there is no absolutely correct setting for it. When the subwoofer is properly in phase with the satellite speakers, the sound will be clearer and have maximum impact. It will make percussive sounds like drums, piano and plucked strings sound more lifelike. The best way to set the Phase switch is to listen to music that you are familiar with and set the switch in the position that gives drums and other percussive sounds maximum impact.

Bass-Boost Switch: Set this switch to “On” to enhance the subwoofer’slow-frequencyperformance. Set this switch to “Off” for normallow-frequencyperformance.

Power-On Mode Switch: When this switch is set in the “Auto” position and when the Power switch is set to “On,” the subwoofer will automatically turn itself on when it receives an audio signal. It will enter the Standby mode if it receives no audio signal for 20 minutes. When thePower-OnMode switch is set in the “On” position, the subwoofer will remain on whether or not it is receiving an audio signal.

An LED on the subwoofer’s top panel indicates whether the subwoofer is in the On or Standby mode:

tWhen the LED glows white, the subwoofer is turned on.

tWhen the LED is not lit up, the subwoofer is in Standby mode.

When the Main Power Switch is set to Off, the LED will not light up, no matter what setting the Power-OnMode switch is in.

Subwoofer Level Control: Use this control to adjust the subwoofer’s volume. Turn clockwise to increase the volume; turn counterclockwise to decrease the volume.

External Trigger Input Connector: NOTE: This connector is NOT used with the BDS receiver. If you connect the subwoofer to a different component that has a voltage

trigger output connection, connect the External Trigger Input to the trigger output of the other compatible component. Whenever the subwoofer detects a trigger signal between 3V and 30V (AC or DC), the subwoofer’s amplifier will turn on. The subwoofer’s amplifier will turn off after the trigger signal ceases, even when the Power-OnMode switch is in the “Auto” position.

Line-Level In LFE Connector: Use the supplied mono RCA audio cable (with the purple connectors) to connect theLine-LevelIn LFE connector to the BDS receiver’s Subwoofer output.

Line-Level In L/R Connectors: NOTE: These connectors are NOT used with the

BDS receiver. If you connect the subwoofer to a different unit that does not have a dedicated, low-pass-filteredsubwoofer output, use these connectors.

tIf the unit has a separate subwoofer output, use the supplied mono RCA audio cable to connect the unit’s subwoofer output to either one of the subwoofer’s Line-LevelIn L/R connectors.

tIf your unit does not have a separate subwoofer output, use two Y-adapters(not supplied). Connect one adapter’s single end to the unit’s preamp output for that channel. Connect one of this adapter’s dual ends to the main amp input for that channel, and connect the adapter’s other dual end to one of the subwoofer’sLine-LevelIn L/R connectors. Repeat this process with the otherY-adapter,preamp channel, main amp input and subwoofer’sLine-LevelIn L/R connector.

Main Power Switch: Set this switch in the On position to turn the subwoofer on. The subwoofer will then either be on or in Standby mode, depending on the setting of the subwoofer’sPower-OnMode switch.

Power Cord: After you have made and verified all subwoofer and speaker connections described in this manual, plug the Power cord into an active, unswitched electrical outlet for proper operation of the subwoofer. DO NOT plug this cord into the accessory outlets found in some audio components.

Subwoofer

Since our ears do not hear directional sound at the low frequencies where the subwoofer operates, it will perform well from just about any location in your room. However, the best bass reproduction is likely to be heard if you place the subwoofer in a corner along the same wall as the front left and right speakers.

You can experiment with subwoofer placement by temporarily placing the subwoofer in the listening position and playing music with strong bass content. Move around to various

locations in the room while the system is playing, and listen until you find the location where the bass performance is best. Place the subwoofer in that location.

Placing the Speakers (BDS 600 System)

Placing the Front Left and Front Right Speakers

If your TV is placed on a table, you can place the soundbar on the table directly in front of the TV, centered with the TV screen. Attach the supplied rubber feet to the soundbar as shown in the illustration.

If your TV is located in an entertainment or media center, you can mount the soundbar in a space directly above or below the TV.

WARNING: Do NOT place the soundbar directly on top of a TV or at the front edge of a table or cabinet. It could roll forward and injure someone.

Wall-Mountingthe Soundbar

If your TV is attached to a wall, you can use the included wall-mountbrackets to mount the soundbar on the wall directly below the TV screen.

1.Determine the location for the soundbar on the wall. Make sure that the top of the soundbar will not block your view of the TV screen when it is mounted on the wall.

2.Mark the locations of the soundbar wall-mountbracket holes on the wall. The holes for the left and right brackets are spaced 600mm apart. The top and bottom holes for each bracket are spaced 25mm apart. See the illustration below.

NOTE: To insure that the soundbar will be level, use a carpenter’s level, a laser sight or another device to insure that the two sets of holes are at exactly the same height.

3.Attach the two wall-mountbrackets to the wall at the locations you marked, using hardware that is appropriate for the wall’s construction and materials. Note that the soundbar weighs 8.1 lb (3.67kg). Be sure to use hardware that can support this weight.

4.After making all of the connections described in the Connections section, on page 14, attach the soundbar to the brackets by sliding the slots in its rubber bumpers onto the brackets’ vertical tabs.

Connections

CAUTION: Before making any connections to the BDS receiver, ensure that the receiver’s AC cord is unplugged from the receiver and the AC outlet. Making speaker connections with the receiver plugged in and turned on could damage the speakers.

Speakers and receivers/amplifiers have corresponding (+) and (–)connection terminals. Your system’s satellite speakers use red to denote the (+) terminal and black for the(–)terminal.

tThe BDS 2 receiver uses white to denote the left channel (+) terminal and red for the right channel (+) terminal. Black is used to denote the (–)terminal of both channels.

tThe BDS 5 receiver uses the following colors to denote the (+) terminals of the various channels:

Front Left (+): White

Surround Left (+): Blue

Front Right (+): Red

Surround Right (+): Gray

Center (+): Green

Black is used to denote the(–)terminals of all channels on the BDS 5 receiver.

The speaker wires included with your system have colored bands at both ends of the (+) conductor; the colors correspond to the receiver’s (+) terminal colors. This system helps you connect each speaker to the correct receiver or amplifier terminals. In addition to the colored bands at each end, each speaker wire’s (+) terminal has ribs molded into its insulation to help identify it.

Be sure to connect each speaker identically: (+) on the speaker to (+) on the receiver or amplifier, and (–)on the speaker to(–)on the receiver or amplifier. Miswiring one or more speakers results in thin sound, weak bass and a poor stereo image.

CAUTION: Make sure the (+) and (–)bare wires do not touch each other or the other terminal. Touching wires can cause a short circuit that can damage your receiver or amplifier.

Digital Audio Source

Analog Audio Inputs 1 and 2: If you have anaudio-onlyanalog source component (such as a tape deck), connect its left and right analog outputs to the Analog Audio Input 1 or Analog Audio Input 2 jacks as shown in the illustration.

NOTE: To hear a TV show through your BDS system, you need to connect the audio output of your TV to the BDS receiver. If your TV has a digital-audiooutput, you can connect it to one of the BDS receiver’s digital inputs (see below). If your TV does not have adigital-audiooutput, you will need to connect the TV’sanalog-audiooutput to the BDS receiver’s Analog Audio Input 1 or Analog Audio Input 2 jacks.

Coaxial In and Optical 1/Optical 2 In: If you have an audio-only digital source component (such as a CD changer or video game), you can connect it to one of these inputs, as shown in the illustration. When using the Optical 1 and Optical 2 digital connections, gently push the cable connector through the panel connector’s built-in shutter until it is firmly seated in the connector.

NOTE: Use only one type of digital connection for each source component.

Connecting the AC Power

The BDS receiver comes with a detachable AC power cord. This type of cord makes it easier for you to install and connect all other system wiring to the receiver’s rear panel. The subwoofer has a non-detachablepower cord.

NOTES:

tThe power requirement for the BDS receiver is 110V – 240V AC, 50/60Hz, 110W (BDS 5 receiver) or 70W (BDS 2 receiver). The power requirement for the subwoofer is 110V – 120V AC, 60Hz, 200W (USA) or 220V – 240V AC, 50/60Hz, 200W (EU). Connecting to a power source other than the ones listed may damage the receiver or subwoofer, or cause abnormal operation.

tBefore connecting the AC power cords to wall outlets, confirm that you have correctly made all of the speaker connections, video connections and audio-componentconnections.

Connect the female end of the receiver’s detachable power cord to the receiver’s AC Power Input connector. Plug the other end into a working, unswitched AC outlet. Plug the subwoofer’s power cord into a working, unswitched AC outlet as well.

Using the Remote

When using the remote, remember to aim it toward the receiver’s front panel. Make sure that no objects, such as furniture, block the remote’s view of the receiver. Bright lights, fluorescent lights, and plasma-videodisplays may interfere with the function of the remote.

tThe remote has a range of about 20 feet (6.1m), depending on the lighting conditions.

tYou can use the remote at an angle of up to 30° to either side of the BDS receiver.

If the remote seems to operate intermittently, or if pressing a button on the remote does not cause one of the buttons to light up, make sure that the batteries are inserted correctly. If the remote still operates intermittently, replace all three batteries with new ones.

Programming the Remote

In addition to controlling the BDS receiver, you can program the remote to control one auxiliary (Aux) component. The remote is also capable of learning codes directly from other remotes. This ability allows you to combine learned commands with programmed codes, making the remote capable of controlling more than one Aux component. Typical Aux components would be your TV, a satellite receiver or a cable receiver.

The remote will control the Aux component(s) only when the Aux source button has been pressed. Pressing any other source button will put the remote back into the BDS receiver control mode.

To program the remote to control an Aux component:

1.Look up the codes for the product type (e.g. TV, cable TV box) and the brand name of your source in the Aux Component Remote-Control Code List, on page 31.

2.Turn your auxiliary component on.

3.Press and hold the Aux button for three seconds as it turns red, goes dark and turns red again. Then release the button.

NOTE: The remote will remain in the programming mode for 20 seconds. You must perform Step 4 within 20 seconds.

4. Aim the remote toward the component you just turned on and enter a code number from Step 1, above. If the component turns off, check that its own remote-controlbuttons control the component as expected. If they do, press the Aux button again to save the code. The button will flash three times and the remote will exit the programming mode.

5. If any of the buttons do not work as expected, or if the device does not turn off when you enter the code number, repeat Step 4 with another code number from the list for that manufacturer.

6.If you run out of codes, you can search through all of the codes in the remote’s library for that product type.

a)Press and hold the Aux button for three seconds. The button will turn red, go dark and turnred again. Then release the button.

b)For a conventional US TV, enter ”0999”; for a conventional EU TV, enter “1999”; for an HDTV, enter “2999”; for a US cable box, enter “3999”; for an EU cable box, enter “4999”; for a US satellite tuner, enter “5999”; for an EU satellite tuner, enter “6999.”

c)Aim the remote control toward the component and press the remote’s Cursor Up button. Each press of the button sends the “Power” signal for one setup code number. Holding down the Cursor Up button quickly scans through all of the setup code numbers.

d)Release the Cursor Up button as soon as the component turns off. If you pass the correct setup code number, you can return to it by pressing the Cursor Down button, one setup code number at a time, until the component turns back on.

e)Check that the other remote-controlbuttons control the component as expected. If they do, press the Aux source selector button again to save the code. The button will flash three times, and the remote will exit the programming mode.

f)If the remote does not operate as expected, repeat Steps c – e. Note that some components may not respond to all of the above commands and may support only some of the commands listed.

To teach individual button codes to the remote:

You can teach codes from other component remotes onto the BDS receiver remote buttons shown shaded in the following illustration:

1.Place the BDS remote and the remote from which you want it to learn codes head-to-head about 1 inch (2.5cm) apart, with their IR transmitter windows facing each other.

2.Press and hold the Settings button on the BDS receiver remote for more than three seconds. The remote’s Aux button will light up.

3.Press the button on the BDS receiver remote to which you want to teach the command. The Learn mode will remain active for 20 seconds after the button is pushed.

4.Press the button on the other remote that you want to “teach” to the BDS receiver remote. When the IR code has been received and stored, the Aux button’s LED will flash three times, and the BDS receiver remote will remain in the learning mode, ready to learn another code. If no IR code is received within 20 seconds, the Aux LED will flash rapidly several times, and the remote will exit the learning mode. To resume programming, return to Step 2.

5.Repeat Step 3 and Step 4 for each command you want to teach the BDS receiver remote. NOTE: If the Aux button’s LED goes out at any time, you will need to begin again from Step 2.

Programming Remote Control “Punch-Through”Commands

After programming the remote to control an auxiliary (Aux) component, you can also program it so it will control the Aux component’s channel up/down and transport functions (Play, Pause, etc.) even when the remote is not in the Aux-controlmode. For example, if the

Preparing the Remote Control

and Setting Up the Receiver

remote is programmed to operate your TV in the Aux control mode, you can also have the TV’s channel +/– functions “punch through” and operate even when the remote is in the Disc, Radio or iPod control modes.

1.Press and hold the button for the main device the remote will be operating. The button will light up, go dark and then light up again. Release the button.

2.Select the type of punch-throughprogramming.

a)For “punch-through”channel control, press the Channel Up button.

b)For “punch-through”transport control, press the Play button.

3.Press the Aux button. The original source button will flash to confirm.

You can repeat Step 1 – Step 3 for any of the remote’s source-selectorbuttons (Aux, Radio etc.). NOTE:“Punch-through”channel and transport commands will override the existing commands for those buttons in the source modes you program.

To undo “punch-through”programming, follow the same steps as above, but press the same source selector button in Step 1 and Step 3.

Using the Remote After it is Programmed

Pressing the remote’s Aux source-selectorbutton will put the remote into the auxiliarycontrol mode, and it will control the auxiliary component(s) via the codes you have programmed into it.

Notes on Setting Speaker Volumes in 5.1-ChannelSystems:

While setting your system’s individual speaker volume levels is ultimately up to your personal taste, here are some ideas you may find helpful:

tFor films and video-musicprograms, your overall goal should be to create an enveloping, realistic sound field that draws you into the film or music program without drawing your attention away from the action on the screen.

tFor multichannel music recordings, some music producers will create a sound field that places the musicians all around you; others will create a sound field that places the musicians in front of you, with more subtle ambience in the surround speakers (as you would experience in a concert hall).

tIn most 5.1-channelfilms, the surround channels are not intended to be as loud or as active as the front channels. Adjusting the surround speakers so they are always as loud as the front channels could make dialogue difficult to understand and will make some sound effects sound unrealistically loud.

ENGLISH

23

BDS

Using the Receiver and Using the Disc Player

Notes on Setting Subwoofer Volume:

tSometimes the ideal subwoofer volume setting for music is too loud for films, while the ideal setting for films is too quiet for music. When setting the subwoofer volume, listen to both music and films with strong bass content and find a “middle ground” volume level that works for both.

tIf your subwoofer always seems too loud or too quiet, you may want to place it in a different location. Placing the subwoofer in a corner will always tend to increase its bass output, while placing it away from any walls or corners will always tend to lessen its bass output.

IMPORTANT: Do not turn the receiver’s volume up to or past the point where the audio from the speakers becomes distorted. Doing so can damage the speakers.

Listening Through Headphones

Your BDS receiver’s headphone connection accepts a standard 3.5mm stereo headphone plug. When you insert the headphone plug into the connector, the receiver’s speaker outputs will mute; the HDMI audio output will not mute.

When headphones are connected to the receiver’s Headphone connector, pressing the remote’s Surround button cycles between these two modes:

tHARMAN Headphone, which virtualizes a multichannel surround soundtrack down to two channels. This mode retains the soundtrack’s original directional cues, allowing you to enjoy an enveloping surround-soundexperience on any ordinary pair of stereo headphones.

tHeadphone Bypass, which downmixes surround-soundprograms into normal stereo. This mode does not retain any multichannel directional cues that may be in the originalsurround-soundprogram.

Using the Disc Player

Disc Handling Precautions

t To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its edge. Do not touch the surface.

Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

If your BDS system isn’t performing the way you think it should, check to see if the problem is covered in this section before calling your dealer or contacting a harman kardon representative.

Problem

Solution

 

 

The receiver won’t power up (the Power indicator is not lit):

t Check that the receiver’s Power cord is properly plugged into the receiver’s AC Power Input

 

connector.

 

t Check that the Power cord is plugged into a working AC outlet. If the outlet is controlled

 

by a switch, make sure the switch is set in the “On” position.

 

t Check that the receiver’s Main Power switch (located on the rear panel) is in the “On”

 

position.

 

 

Sound plays through the BDS system speakers, but there is no TV picture:

t Check the HDMI connection between the receiver and the TV.

 

t Check that the TV is turned on and is set to the proper input source.

 

t Unplug the HDMI cable from the TV and plug it back in again.

 

 

There is no sound coming from just the subwoofer:

t Check that the subwoofer’s Power cord is plugged into a working AC outlet.

 

t Check that the subwoofer’s Power switch is in the “On” position.

 

t Check that the Subwoofer Level control is not turned all the way down (fully

 

counterclockwise).

 

t Check that the audio connection between the receiver and the subwoofer has been properly

 

made.

 

t Check the receiver’s Settings: Configuration menu to make sure that the subwoofer volume

 

has not been set at –10dB.

 

 

There is a constant hum in the sound:

t Check that all input cables are plugged all the way into their connectors.

 

t Check that all cables are at least 10 ft (3,5m) from fluorescent lights.

 

t Check that all cable connectors are clean. If necessary, wipe them with a cloth slightly

 

moistened with alcohol.

 

t Set the subwoofer’s Power switch to “Off.” If the hum goes away, there is a ground loop

 

between the subwoofer and the receiver. Plugging the subwoofer’s Power cord into the

 

same AC outlet that the receiver is plugged into should eliminate the ground loop.

 

 

The disc does not play:

t Check that the disc is inserted correctly (label side up).

 

t Check that the disc is the correct type:BD-Video(single-layerordouble-layer),DVD-Video,

 

DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R/-RW,CDDA (CD digital audio),CD-R/RW.Other disc types will not play.

 

t Check that the disc surface is clean and not scratched.

 

 

There is noise or other interference in the picture while playing a Blu-rayDisc recording or

t Check that the disc surface is clean and not scratched.

DVD:

 

 

 

The sound and picture are out of sync when listening to an Aux source:

t Press the Options button and perform the Lip Sync adjustment to bring the sound and

 

picture into synchronization.

 

 

Cannot tune in radio stations:

tCheck that the FM antenna is correctly connected.

tAdjust the antenna’s position. If necessary, use a powered FM antenna or an outdoor FM antenna.

The receiver does not respond to remote-controlcommands:

t Replace all threeremote-controlbatteries with fresh ones, and make sure that they are

 

installed with the correct polarity.

 

t Hold the remote closer to the receiver.

 

t Check that the receiver’s remote sensor is in the line of sight of the remote control.

 

 

The remote does not control programmed components (TV or video):

t Check that you have pressed the remote’s Aux button before trying to operate the

 

component.

 

t Re-programand/orre-teachthe component’s commands into the remote.

 

 

The Ø symbol appears on the screen when you press a remote-controlbutton:

t The selected function is not permitted at the time you press the button.

 

 

The receiver does not respond to commands, or it behaves in an erratic way:

t Unplug the receiver’s Power cord from the AC outlet, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in.
