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.

Hello, Thanks for the detailed explanation... It seems to be there is a short or misplaced (+) (-) leads on the speaker connection you made..sometimes a tiny cable piece can make a short in between the leads and cause such problem..My recommendation is: ** take all the wires off.. ** install only B speaker leads and test it..( make sure LEFT and RIGHT (+) and (-) leads properly and individually connected to the right places on the back......it is important...This causes balancing problem.. ** if it works fine... ** than go ahead and install the A speaker leads..and test it.. if you do everything properly both A and B speakers should work fine as independently ...
Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for Helping out the Community :) Hope this helps!
HI, BASED ON THE INFO YOU GAVE I HAVE SOME SUGGESTIONS BELOW..
1, switch the working right speakers cable to left output and problem left to right (from the back of receiver -not from the speakers it self..) to see if problem continues..
2.After switching them ,if it (old left new right one ) still stops left speaker cable may have short ( a tiny cable inner pieces may touching to other side ) at either at the back of receiver output or at the end ,at speaker input . make sure you control it carefully...if the problem persist please contact to me..

If you have checked the speakers and wiring, the right channel has a audio driver or output problem, which explains the low volume, static, and distortion. A service technician will be required to fix the receiver so it will balance the left side.
Good day sir, Hi, your Philips receiver trouble can be any of the ff:
your receiver left fuse is blown, check if it has a user fuse at the back. or
your main IC amplifier for the left channel is bad. you need to replace that IC, but check first the wiring of the speakers.
Check your receiver left speakers if it is producing a soft hum, to do this turn down the right channel, or adjusting the balance knob to the left, or simply remove the speaker connection of the right channel. place your ears on the left speaker as you adjust the volume up and down, do you hear a soft hum that goes up and down also? If yes the problem is on the source section before main amplification, usually the pre-amplifier stage, If you hear no hum at all. problem with the main left amplifier. The main amplifier is usually a single IC for both left and right channel, OR one IC amplifier for the left and one for the right, in both cases, replace the bad IC.
hi. i have a sony amplifier. i plug the speakers in like normal. i turn it on and the right side speeker works fine. but you half to crank it up all the way just to barely hear the left speeker. we switched speakers and its still the same effect. we think its the amp itself. we tried our balance settings. it was fine. but right now its just playing one speaker louder then the left one. can anyone help me?
Now when you say side A and side B are you refuring to left and right?? Speakers A or B Are a differant set of speakers like front and rear. if you mean right side works and the left side dosent then yes it could be a fuse if the units old enough. Make sure you check the balance control to see if its in the middle or turned all the way to one side. you would be surprosed how many times Ive seen this problem. if you unplug the unit and look around and see any fuses take them out one at a time and see if they are blown as you would see the little filiment inside burnt or broken. Replace Only with the same type And rating. If you turn on the unit and the fuse pops again or theres no differance then its time to take the unit in to a repair shop unless you know how to troubleshoot solid state electronics. The only user serviceable parts inside of this unit would be the fuses. If there are no fuses popped then its also time to take the unit to the servicer. Good Luck
