I'm assuming this is Harman Kardon AVR 1600 receiver.
Was this an "open box" unit? If so, whoever used it before probably left the settings in a random state.
It probably would be appropriate to do a "processor reset" to return the settings all to factory default and then start from there. See page 35 of the owner's manual for instructions on how to do that.
If you have a surround-sound speaker system, then run the speaker calibration procedure. (page 23)
Otherwise, follow the instructions on page 24.
Use the "Input Setup" menu to configure all of the input connections. If all of the audio input selections are set with "Auto Poll: On", then you shouldn't need to set them manually to "Analog".
Does this help at all?
