Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
Sometimes the sound goes off on the left speaker, when i increase the volume the sound comes back
It may be as simple as a dirty volume control, Some contact cleaner will remedy that. but it may also be as time consuming as finding a bad solder connection. If it drops out with headphones on, suspect the volume control area and the preamp section of the amp. If it just drops out with the speakers, but not the headphones- look at the connections around the output transistors. If nothing is apparently broken, and solder joints are sound or reflowed with no change, get a can of "component chiller" and spray each output transistor of affected chennel, and the electrolytic capacitors in the finals and driver stages until it corrects and then replace defective part, though i suspect a bad solder joint to be more likely.. .

invert the speaker cables if the problem went to right speaker you will find a problem in your left speaker(cable or speaker)-if not you will have a problem in your amp itself.

try to invert your speakers cables and connect your right speaker cable to left output if the problem still happened you will have a problem in your amp and ask for help from good service center near you-------if the problem disappear you will have a problem in left channel----cable or speaker.

It's the ribbon cable that is likely at fault. There are actually three computer type ribbon cables in the amp. I believe the cable that is responsible for the drop-out of a channel is the widest (longest) of the three, but you really need a tech to look at it and replace the cable. But please note that the new cable may also have defects in manufacture and that it may take some time to order a new cable from Creek. I had a tech solve the problem permanently by removing all three ribbon cables and then hard-wiring the connections together - that is to say, point-to-point wiring. My cost was about $250, but as you can imagine, there is extensive labor involved. Good luck!

SOURCE: losing the right channel
usually this would indicate a dry joint inside or some other temp related intermittent fault, component problem. Take it to a tech and tell them what happens

Spray it with Servisol Video 40! It's just dirt on the track. You can get it from Maplin (UK) or Radioshack (USA). Or any electronic shop.
