Question about Sony MHC-RG444S CD Shelf System
Hello everyone. I seem to have some trouble with this stereo. The sound is missing at times from the right channel. I re-checked the connections , swapped the left-right channels , but it seems like the right channel of the stereo is having troubles as the right speaker , if plugged into the left channel outputs , it goes ok. The strange part is that if i increase the volume , it turns back to normal , and i can hear the sound from both channels. Yesterday tho it started to play around with both channels (meaning that all i could hear was the sub playing). However , from time to time , the left-right start to work again ( for a limited time). Today i tried a cold reset , and so far , it goes well , but i have my doubts. I can tell for sure that there is no loose connection. I have installed some sort of speaker terminals , that just stay still in the "push" connectors on the stereo. My big question is , could it be related to some faulty joints of the push speaker terminals? Could it be the amp board itself? Could it be the volume knob? I'm in the dark here... . Thanks im advance!

on laptop, ensure the following: 1. go to Volume control (look for icon on system tray). 2. under Options tab select Properties. 3. under Adjust volume for recording option, ensure that microphone is is check-boxed if no luck, borrow a second amp and connect your L/R jacks (red and white colour) to the borrowed amps line in jacks and test whether you hear anything to confirm your line out capability.

It sounds to me like you both are having a problem with a capacitor going bad. some capacitors act as a noise filter and it sounds like you both have a bad one. If you are any good with a volt-ohm meter that reads capacitors you should check them to make sure they are at their proper values which will be posted on the capacitor. then replace it. if you dont know how to use a v-o meter then take it to a shop and have them replace it

Sorry, I have a similar problem and came here looking for a solution. I believe the problem is with the speaker or the speaker wire. When I move the "good" speaker to the other set of lugs, it continues to function OK. I wish I could get the speaker box open without major surgery, but, alas, they are not made for repair. Don't know if I will cut into the box. My temp solution is to turn the unit off/on. This gets both speakers working. Bit of a drag, but I am finding it real difficult to find a new system w a tape player.
