Question about Sony STR-DE445 Receiver
I got this reciever for free from my brother recnetly and it had been in a box for quite a while. I took it out and hooked up some speakers, and I noticed the right channel on this is super low. I tried a set of headphone to see if it were my speakers, and no fix. I swapped speakers, changed wires, and even tried to reset ( by unplugging for more than an hour) but, still it does the same. Even when I change the speaker balance to +8 on the right channel it stil does not have much sound coming out. I am guessing I need to break it open and start checking the circuits, but I don't know where to start.

One way would be to run an RCA cable pair from the Tape Out to any other device (even a TV with speakers) you might have that accepts an audio input. If IT can't detect receive the DEAD Channel you
