Sony mdr nc20 low volume on one channel

Volume on one channel on my Sony mdr nc20 is lower than the other. Difference is very significant. Both channels do get sound but I have to balance far to the left to get similar volume. Replaced battery. Connectors look good.

SOURCE: Volume really low, even when turned right up

So the speakers and the individual amp channels work so that lets out the obvious big hardware items.

This is starting to sound like an obscure setting was set or changed by mistake.

It would be nice to figure out what that is/was in case it happens again but you may eventually have to resort to resetting the receiver to factory defaults and start over by holding the1/0 button for 5 seconds.

You could try to use a player with a stereo balance and adjust that, but in reality you need new headphones. Sonys have very comfortable and flexible cabling but the downside is that they wear out easily.

SOURCE: Sony BRAVIA volume problem

I had this same issue, and solved it by putting the TV in "Theater Mode', which can be acheived by hitting the "Theater" button on the remote.

Hello!
I must inform you that most of the wireless headphones has an automatic shut-off which puts it in stand-by when there is no sound going in to it. Or if the sounds in your device is too quiet the headphones will think you have finished using it.

What you need to do is increase the volume setting of your device. And turn the volume control on the headphones down then as well - assuming that your headphone base unit is connected to the headphone socket of your device.

Can these be hooked up so you can hear the tv external speakers as well?


I have the headset running through an amplifier so my wife can listen at her volume level and I can adjust the headset volume for myself. The volume dial on the amp is set to zero; but the audio output jacks still provide plenty of volume to the headset. You can get a reasonable amplified for $100 or less

The sound just stops dead


I have the exact same problem. Try to crank up the volume from your stereo/receiver and lower the volume in the headphones. I think that the headphones goes into standby mode if the volume is to low. Works for me (for two days, so its not really a fact yet ;-) )
