Crosley CR6001A: Left speaker barely audible


Hi Eric,

I understand how frustrating this problem can be. The problem can be the result of several different things. Two of them are 1) blown speaker and, 2) blown left amplifier output.

Try listening with stereo headphones. If you can hear both channels clearly, the amplifier is most likely functioning correctly. This is desirable as amp repairs would probably be more costly than a driver (speaker) replacement. Make sure you vary the balance controls while checking for output on both L and R speakers. If the sound is intermittent, the volume or balance control may have dirt built up and may return to working properly by liberally spraying electrical contact cleaner around the stem (knob removed) with the unit unplugged. Use the extension tube to pinpoint the output along the stem. Be careful to keep from over-spraying as it may damage plastic and wood cabinetry. After spraying, rotate the knob fully back and forth several times and then plug back in and try for sound again.

If you can't restore the volume to the left speaker, you may have a blown speaker. This usually happens as a result of excessive volume which leads to distorted sound. If played this way long enough, damage to the speaker is unavoidable.

The speaker can not be fixed - but may be replaced. Replacing the speaker is something most people with conventional hand tools can do - with the unit unplugged. Finding the information on the speaker may prove to require some digging however. You'll need to know the size, wattage rating, impedance value in ohms, and frequency response. It would be best to obtain the exact replacement part if possible.

Other than this, you'll probably need to have it serviced professionally. Good luck!

The sound of the ''shure m44-7'' only sends a signal to the left side of my headphones and master. the cables are wired in the good colour and seem to be steady, what else could it be?


If you are only getting sound from one channel try reversing the left and right channel cables from the turntable to the Preamp/Amplifier. If the sound switches channels in your headphones then the cartridge or the cables from the cartridge to the preamp in the turntable have a problem. If the same channel has sound, did not change channels, then you have a problem with the preamp or headphones. If the headphones work with another input, radio, cd, etc, then the headphones are good and the problem is in the preamp unit.

Sound only from left side speakers!


If you put the good channel from the deck into the right and then left phono imputs of your amp, the sound should come out from the left and right speakers. If it only comes out from the left, then the amp as a right hand channel fault. Now if other devices work on both channels, then it's the pre-amp for the phono socket that has a fault on it. You should be able to find this by following the wires from the phono socket. If you touch around that pre-amp you should get it to buzz on either channel (where it joins with the main pre-amp). Doing this with a screwdriver will pin-point where the faulty part is (working backwards). PS don't short anything by touching to bits of metal together with the screwdriver.
Magnetic cartridges need a small pre-amp before they can be past to the main pre-amp. That's why you can't hear anything with the deck plugged into another line socket.
If you get signal on both left and right speakers with the above test the deck is to blame.

The EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter software seems to have caused a conflict in the audio codec. I can hear the music on vinyl as it records, but now I can't hear iTunes or web sounds. All my settings for volume...


It is probably too late to help you, but others might have this problem and we solved the issue by disabling and enabling.
Click on windows button (bottom left hand corner), control panel - sound - Playback tab
You will find that there are a number of different speaker setups in that area. One set will have the light meter moving, but there won't be sound from your speakers. This is because the modern computer is much more like an amp and has the ability to have different speaker combinations and settings. You only use one speaker set-up.
- double click on a speaker option, advanced tab, and test. If there is no sound, then your speakers aren't connected to that port. Move to the next one.
- Once you find the correct speaker setup for your system, then disable the previous setup and ensure this one is enabled. Once the meter bar lights up for the right speaker combo, all sound will work as expected on your computer.

The modern computer is much like a stereo amp now, and you have to tell it which set to use. (For some reason it works well enough, until you start adding stereo components onto your system.)

One of my DJ turntables = only left side stereo sound


need to narrow it down, using 1 turn table ONLY with the mixer on channel 1 (the chanel that is working) to test reciever is working properly and sound working on both side of the speakers, this eliminate the first turn table. Next, disconnect the working turn table (1) and connect your second turn table to the same chanel and see if you getting the sound coming chanel 1 just as your first turn table did. If you getting sound coming out from turn table on ch1 than is not the turn table issue. It will be you mixer having problems. You cant solve the problems having everything connected. Testing one turn table at a time using working chanel on the mixer to see if both turn table working properly. If you use the same chanel testing both turn table and the second one does not work than it will be one of your turn table is faulty. Note: if you find and test both of your turn table is working properly than it will be your mixer. good luck and hope that help..

Very low volume from my technics sl6 even when tuner is turn up to max. volume.


Hiya, first and foremost, is it plugged into the amps correct sockets? Turnatables have to in the PHONO (turntable) Any others , CD, AUX, MIC etc will not work. (sorry if that seems obvious, wasnt sure on the info provided)

If that is OK then check the stylus, probably requires a new stylus or/and cartridge.

Best of luck

Some sounds are lower in songs


Well, it seems you answered your own question. Replace your stylus. If that doesn't solve your problem, the issue might be your RCA cables or tonearm.

What many people don't understand is that it takes ALOT to wear out a record. I mean, you would have to play a record about a good 1000 times before you'll see any sort of real wear/tear on it. Why do you think they last so long? Besides, record wear doesn't sound like that. With TRUE record wear you'll experience lots of skipping from your stylus, as the grooves have worn down. Also, you'll get alot of pan issues, where the sound goes in/out left/right side. The grooves of a record are a V shape, and the left side of the V carries the left signal, and the right side carries the right signal. With record wear, usually 1 side will wear out quicker than the other, and that's why you'll get inconsistencies with sound.

Unless you play the same record over and over again for the past few years, you wont see this kind of wear.

Replace your stylus first, then have your RCA cables and tonearm checked. Try cleaning out your tonearm with 99.9% PURE ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL and see if that does anything.

Good luck
