Question about Technics SA-DA10N 5.1 Channels Receiver

Open Question

No left or center channel sound.

The left and center channels have stopped producing sound. It started with a sound that was similair to one you would hear if your radio station wasn't tuned correctly then they stopped producing sound. The right channels front and rear work great. I do have the speakers wired through a sub woofer. The channels will occassionaly let some sound through but it is distorted and last only for a few seconds. Have checked connections for tightness and have turned unit off for several minutes which did not cure anything.

Look for lossing solders points or bad conections. Start to look on those components of hi wattage and components to get hot alot, those are the most common to have weak solders spots.
Also some equipment need to be clean because the dust can make problems.
good luk.

My Denon dvd-2910 does not play 5.1. It is connected to Denon AVR-3805. It plays just stereo. The center, back channels and subwoofer don't give any sound

Your Denon DVD-2910 produces left and right audio output. Your Denon AVR-3805 generates 5.1 channel output; therefore, 5.1 channel output may not have been selected or the AVR-3805 may be defective.

Can anyone tell me if the Adcom 5503 three channel amp is common ground? I want to use it to power some old school polk SDA 1C as my mains and a CSi5 polk center. Thanks

no reason why not, 3 channel amps used to be the "state of the art" back in the early stereo days. the third channel was produced from the sum of the right and left channels, (the plus side of the right and the plus side of the left were sent to the center channel. produced what was considered at the time a true reproduction of the sound as it was intended to be. your lucky to have this old amp.

We have an old amplifier from back in the 80's and 90's. Its 500watts, the right channels (both main and sides) work fine and loud, but the left channels produce very low sound. I checked the fuse and its...

Have you checked the final transistors on that weak channel? They may look fine but may be weak. You can pull them and check them on your multimeter with the diode check and cross it with the data sheet for that transistor.

Onkyo TX-DS696 receiver center channel not working

Can you say explicitly that the Center Channel speaker is defined as something other than NONE?

And how does dialog sound? If it sounds ok you're routing it to the front speakers. This is from the manual...

"For ideal Surround effects, all speakers should be installed. If a
center speaker or subwoofer is not connected, the sound from the unused channel is properly distributed to the connected speakers in order to produce the best Surround sound possible."

Technics 1310 turntable has left channel (white

There are just two causes, one is the preamp, which can be easily checked by putting the right channel jack in the left terminal. If the sound is normal, then it's likely that the cartridge in the deck is bad, or some wire is loose. However if the sound is still poor then the magnetic cartridge preamp in the amp has a fault. These are normally a single IC, which will have failed. Find the preamp by tracing the wires from the imput socket to the PC board, which may be alone.

RX-V596 center and rear channels do not have any sound

Nevermind... My center channel output was set to "NONE" I've had this receiver for a few years now, probably set it that way back when I got it. Oh well, Helps to re-read the user manual...

The info is in the "SET MENU" section of the manual, Pages 35-38. Should solve the issue for "almccrum" above as well.

If you don't have your manual it can be downloaded here:

You've camped the speakers onto the right channel only. While the balance is on the left unhook one of your speakers and connect to the other channel it will come on the now you should have balanced speakers. Can you come back and tell me if that helped.
