Speaker Problem This problem occurs for all functions and is the same condition if I swap the speakers. The right speaker will not play. I only get sound from the left speaker jacks. Any help appreciated.

Re: Speaker Problem
You most likly have an audio output IC blown in this unit. Most self units under 200 bucks, are not worth the labor to repair them, but if this unit cost more then this and is less then a couple of years old, It may be worth investing some case to have this unit repaired.

check mute button, source knob/button, speaker selection knob/button while its playing a cd or FM radio. Also if you have connected headphones the speakers would mute. Check the speaker connections. If the speakers are powered you need to connect them to a power source. If all these fail to produce sound consult a technician.
Did you swap speaker to a different channel and put another in its place to see if the problem follows the speaker or stays on that channel? That would me my next move if it's possible to do. Let me know.
this old timer probably has an output amplifier fault.with a circuit diagram any competent engineer shoulb able to locate the problem with the turntable removed access is easy and so is replacing parts
It's one of three things things: First, examine where the speaker wires are plugged into the receiver. Are any of the copper strands touching one another? If so, remove the excess stripped wire and reinsert it. Problem solved.
Test two: bad speaker. to test, swap the speakers (hook the right speaker to the left speaker jacks and the left speaker to the right speaker jacks). If the RIGHT side now cuts out, you have bad speakers.
If the speaker on the LEFT jacks still cuts out, your amplifier is going bad (which could cost between $50-$200 to repair).
sir i think ypur unit is ok and run correctly... try to check your speaker maybe your speaker got open or burnt... you can test it by swapping your speaker to another unit or you can test your speaker using multitester...just point your selector at resistance test a speaker has 8ohms reading....
the speaker has a two terminal.. a positive terminal and a negative terminal... your multitester has a two lead.. red lead which is a positive and a black lead which is negative.. Multimeter probe sockets (NL Graphics)
Insert the probes of a digital
multimeter in the correct sockets of the multimeter. There may be
several different sockets for the probes depending on what parameters
you're measuring. Look for the sockets marked "impedance" or displaying
the ohm symbol. Different models and brands of multimeters will vary in
their labeling, so check your multimeter's manual if you're not certain
about which one to use.
Select the range for the
multimeter. Since you'll be measuring fairly low resistance levels with a
speaker, choose a range that will encompass readings in the 2-16 ohm
range. It's extremely rare to find speakers that will have an impedance
outside of that range.
Touch one probe to each of the
speaker terminals and check the reading. This will be the impedance of
the speaker. Record the measurement, and when you're done, turn off the
multimeter to preserve the batteries for the next time you need the
Before you replace the speaker, swap the left and right. If the sound problem follows the speaker, the speaker is bad. If the problem remains on the same side, the problem is with the unit. Lets assume that the problem is inside the unit. In that case, the problem could be just a bad connection. If you can solder, check the main board around the speaker terminals for poor solder connections. If that is not the problem, update this and I'll provide additional things you can test and check.
Hi There thanks for your very good desctiption of the problem it really helps to have a lot of detail...
There are Mono and stereo types of stylis cartridges and it sounds like you have a mono equipped into a stereo amplifier..
If there are 4 small coloured wires visible under the stylis then
its a stereo stylis and should work, have a close look and maybe one of the small wires has dropped of the small pins on the back opf the stylis cartridge.
If there only two wires visible then its a mono cartridge and this is why you only have sound from one channel..
So answer is wires dropped of the stylis.
Wrong type of stylis cartridge.
if there are four wires and thay all look connected then perhaps the stylis is faulty and you need to replace it...
Are you using the same cord for the mp3 player as you are for the cd and radio? There could be a patch cord problem or it could be the output jack of the mp3 player. If using headphones with the mp3 player works both right and left then it must be the patch cord. Try using a different patch cord.
