Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Got an old philips 7831 receiver that has a problem with the balance on the right side speaker - the left is fine, but when you turn the bal. knob to the right side, it's barely working. any ideas?
Likely the control is old and dirty. It is known as a rheostat on older units and often a little contact cleaner on it will work. A simple thing to try that might work is to rotate the knob back and forth, left to right, each time going to full stop. do this several, several times. See if this makes things better. Of course, the assumption I am making is that the right speaker is operating normally. If you switch out the left speaker for the right, and the problem persists, on the same side, it is the receiver. If the problem now appears on the left side, it is a speaker issue and not the receiver. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
