Yes and no. If you swap the channel leads over the fault should go to the other channel. Still the same, then not the Cassette deck.
There are several causes to one channel going. First the lead to the tape head is off or the head has gone!! Secondly a switch either on the front of the machine or the inside (when it switches to record) is faulty. Lastly an electronic fault. The good thing is that you have one good channel to play with. So as they are both the same any readings should be the same for both channels. The electronics will also buzz when touched with an insulated tool. So if it buzzers in one place in one channel it should do the same in the other in the same place.

Hookup soney duel tape deck to onkyo equalizer


If you are trying to equalize the sound from one half to the other ... you cannot, unless there are separate INPUT and OUTPUT jacks on the back. Otherwise you will need a second cassette deck.

Hookin equalizer to tape deck and recever


The equalizer I have seen have Line in, line out, tape in, tape out and that is how you utilize a unit like this. The line IN goes to the receivers tape record out. The line out goes to the receivers Tape play in or monitor, The tape deck hooks to the equalizer. The record or input of the tape deck hooks to the EQ record out, the Tape decks output hooks to the EQ's Tape in connectors. All these are stereo so there are left and right sides which you need to keep consistent. Red on a cable means Right, the white or black on cables mean Left or the top RCA connector on most equipment.
When playing back a tape the tape monitor is turned on with the receiver and left on. The way you record on tape from any source of the receiver is to select that source and it should go to the equalizer. Then the deck should record that source. To play a tape of the deck hooked to the equalizer then just press the tape monitor button on the EQ otherwise the Equalizer will just act as a loop and equalize any signal source that is coming from the receiver and the tape monitor on the receiver should stay on most of the time. Some equalizers have two tape inputs so you would hook another deck to that input and the owners manual of the equalizer should say how to select buttons to transfer tape signals from one to the other. If you master the concept of inputs and output of audio equipment then this hookup becomes another easy thing to do.

Sony TC-530 hum in internal amplifier left channel.


Electrolytic capacitors are good at causing hum. You could try replacing some of them, they are not expensive. Otherwise you might have damaged the left channel amp semiconducter, whatever that might be.

Sony tape decks model tc-355


Follow the left channel lead to where it joins with the PCB. Use a pointed tool and prod connections if you get a buzz then that stage in the amp is working. I suspect you will find it leads to a IC that might cause the fault. If you find it buzzers on the right but not left, then it's gone. PS don't short pins. If you can get hold of a signal injector it will make things easy.
Be careful and good luck.
