Yamaha receiver front channels only getting 50% output on rt side
I have a Yamaha R-V701 receiver that is not putting the same volume out of both sides changed wires and speakers and ruled them out. I think it is the output jack in the receiver, is there a way to check for sure, or to repair. the receiver was disconnected during remodeling, it got dusty around the house, I tried to keep it dust free.

Your receiver has Zone-2 functionality. For Zone-2, it has both speaker (powered) output and pre-out line outputs. According to Yamaha FAQ, these pre-out outputs are independent on the main volume settings. So if your wireless headphones have their own volume settings, you can change the volume independent on speakers volume.
If you want same volume for speakers and headpohones, use the PRE-OUT FRONT outputs on the back. If you want different volumes (and listen to headphones even with speakers muted), use ZONE-2 OUT outputs on the back.
The title of your question reads "I have a AV receiver RX-V440 Yamaha..." yet you say you are using the manual of an RX 1020L. I will try to provide a suitable answer for both receivers.
First, a "MON" connections on an amplifier or switching unit is normally used as a line level OUTPUT from the amplifier or switch. Line level outputs are sent to RCA connectors on other TVs or amplifiers (or switches).
"MON" should not be wired directly to the OUTPUT of anything trying to "playback". It should be connected only to things that can record or allow you to see or hear what the amplifier is outputing.
Now to answer your question:
The RX-V440 is a 6.1 channel Home Theater Receiver. If you stand behind the receiver and look at the left hand side, you will see 12 RCA connectors (2 L/R by 6 high). The top 2 connectors are labeled "CD". The next set of 2 connectors are labeled "IN/(PLAY)". The third set down from the top are labeled "OUT/(REC)".
You can connect the reel-to-reel output to either CD or IN. If the reel-to-reel has a selector switch, set it to "Output" and not "Monitor". If the reel-to-reel has volume controls, set them such that music causes can be heard when you select CD or IN on the RX-V440.
The RX 1020L is also a multi-channel receiver. If you stand behind the receiver and look at the left hand side near the center (top to bottom) of the receiver, you will see RCA connectors labeled "AUDIO 1" through "AUDIO 4".
You can connect the reel-to-reel output to either of these. The primary purpose for "AUDIO 3" and "AUDIO 4" is to allow you to hear component video input AV1 and AV2. If the reel-to-reel has a selector switch, set it to "Output" and not "Monitor". If the reel-to-reel has volume controls, set them such that music causes can be heard when you select one of the "AUDIO 1", "AUDIO 2" or whatever on the RX 1020L receiver.
NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING. Turn the volume control to something medium. The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.
Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.
There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead
If you are blowing the mains fuse, you likely have an issue in the power supply. This can be a bad rectifier or filter capacitor; or, less likely, some other component. The fact that you're asking the question suggests you should not try to fix this yourself.
I do not believe that you can. If you use the "b" channel for the center channel, the "a" channel will not process the left and right channels simultaneously. It is either or, not both at the same time. It may be possible to run your E660's directly off the TV output adjusting the volume from the TV, while running the center channel through the Yamaha receiver and adjusting the volume for the center channel from the receiver.I hope this helps.
