Hello. How you doing? I don't understand how to get the 4k pass through to work. Is it meant to be automatic?

Can a turntable be hooked up to this? &nbsp;One without a preamp. &nbsp;Thank you.

Asked by: Steve D
The AVR does not have a Phono input to get it connected to a turntable. you may need to get an outboard phono preamp to connect your turntable and receiver together.

I live in Africa. My main concern is whether I can purchase this receiver without worry that it will blow out. I've already lost a blu-ray player Also, I want to confirm that it is indeed possible to play music files from a hard drive via usb port.

First of all, sorry my poor english. My 1510S avr does not working with my 16gb and 32 gb pendrives. What is the solution?

Asked by: jthel
The USB port on the AVR 1510S can be used to play MP3 and WMA audio files from a USB device inserted into the port. Insert the connector or device into the USB port oriented so it fits all the way into the port. You may insert or remove the connector or device at any time &ndash; there is no installation or ejection procedure. Press the USB button on your remote control and you should be able to use these files and play them accordingly. If this did not fix your problem, we would like to work with you directly. I see you are located in Hungary. Please submit a case request at https://eu.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

My avr 1510s can't turn on . The power light in the flashlight is blinking. I kept the power button to turn on but it did not work. Can you tell me why?

Asked by: Quang Vu
There are five possible reasons for is happening to your receiver. 1. There is a problem internally with the receiver. 2. There is a problem with one or more of your speakers. 3. There is a problem with one or more of your speaker wires. 4. There is a problem with the speaker wiring done on your system. 5. The unit is overheating. No ventilation. First, check the wiring at every speaker terminal at the back of your receiver and at the back of your speakers. A single strand of speaker wire crossing from one terminal to another would be enough to cause the receiver to do this If you do not find any problems with any of the wiring, you should disconnect all speakers from your receiver. If the receiver continues to show the power light blinking, the problem is in the receiver. I see that you are in Vietnam. You may reach our APAC support at support.apac@harman.com. Our Customer Service team will be more than happy to assist you. However, if it turns on, the problem is elsewhere. Begin reconnecting one speaker at a time. Eventually you will connect a speaker that will cause the receiver to shut down. At this point you have found your culprit. On the other hand, it may just be overheating. You must have at least 2 - 3 inches of space between the top of the unit and any shelf or component above the unit. The unit should not be inside a sealed compartment when being used. The unit must be able to breath. There are very powerful amps in these receivers. If they run too hot, they will shut down. An external fan can help this.
