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 ...

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.

Only get sound out of right side both a and b


Good day sir, Hi, your Philips receiver trouble can be any of the ff:
  1. your receiver left fuse is blown, check if it has a user fuse at the back. or
  2. your main IC amplifier for the left channel is bad. you need to replace that IC, but check first the wiring of the speakers.
  3. 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.

Fixed the Onkyo. Took apart the balance adjuster and rebent the feather-like things inside so they made contact. Clamped it back together and it works fine.

Sound not coming from left side surround sound speaker or my right side front speaker


it is highly likely that you're TV is outputting mono sound, hence the left channel only. check your physical connections to the TV and the balance / channel volume on the television as well.
