RCA RS 2015 right speaker working, left low volume

I tried changing the speakers around and it doesnt matter what speaker, there's always one that has a low volume and the other has a normal volume. Is there a speaker balance on the stereo?

SOURCE: Sound Won't play

We had the same problem with our last rca stereo. I don't remember what model it was. My husband took it apart and found that there was and area on the circuit board that was fried. I don't know of any other solution then the one we chose. Trash it. I'm not expert but I would imagine that you could by a new stereo for the price of replacing that circuit board. Just don't buy an rca. They are junk. Our new rca just quit playing cds.

Yea try plugging it into another wall socket, if it's still humming could be a damaged transformer. or bad capacitor.

SOURCE: surround sound not working

sorry but start with the obvious..the surround speakers usually are a looped curcuit using one single live split .so check each speaker works the cable is ok .if all checks out ok go for the selector switch if its a push switch press it repeatedly .if all this fails tap around the unit there might be a dry joint.good luck .farr64

Hello...my left speaker doesnt work


Hi,
It might be a wiring issue or your computer. What speakers do you use in general? Because I have the same problem now and it seems like the wiring is loose inside, so I can only get it to work by twisting and turning the wire for now.

So yeah
Try doing this:
Open up your left speaker and see if the wiring is disconnected. If it is, connect it using a soldering iron. It might be in the wire line that goes into the speaker. If not then the speakers or the circuitry inside is dead. Replace it.

If you do not want to replace it then try:
Go into your computer (in Windows), right-click the volume icon and click Playback Devices. Click on speakers (it should have a check mark on it), then click Properties. A box will open up. Click on Levels and click Balance, then check if the slider with an L is low or all the way to the left. If it is low then turn it up. If it is not then right click on the volume icon again, and this time click Open Volume Mixer. Hover your mouse over Speakers (or in some cases headphones) and you should see the brand (in my case it says VIA HD Audio). Go to the website and look for the latest audio driver for your PC/Laptop. Install it, and if it fixes the problem, GRET. If not, then replace the speakers, the left speaker is dead.

Or maybe it is not connected......check the connections.

No volume on all left side speakers


Determining the Cause of the Problem Let's assume our system has a head unit, a crossover, a two channel amplifier and two door speakers with only the right speaker working (the left speaker is not working). If the door speakers are behind the door panels then we want to make sure the speaker is the problem before removing the panel. We'll work backwards starting with the amplifier and ending at the head unit. Testing for a Speaker Problem With the vehicle and the stereo turned off disconnect the speaker wires for both the left and right speakers at the amplifier. Now connect the left speaker to the right amplifier output (which we know works). Turn on the stereo system and make sure the balance is set to the middle position.If the speaker still doesn't work then the problem is somewhere between the amplifier and the speaker Testing for an Amplifier Problem Now we'll need to see if the amplifier channel is bad. Put the left speaker back on the left amplifier channel and the right speaker on the right amplifier channel. This returns the speaker wiring to its original configuration. Again, with the vehicle and stereo off unplug the RCA cables from the amplifier's input and switch them so the left cable is in the right input and vice versa. Turn on the stereo system. Testing for an RCA Cable Problem For any intermediate components between the amplifier and the head unit follow these steps for each one. We only have a crossover so we'll just do this once. Begin by testing the RCA cables between the intermediate component and the amplifier. Unplug both RCA cables from the intermediate component's output. Now plug the working channel's RCA cable into the non-working side of the crossover. In our case the working channel is the right so plug the right RCA cable from the amplifier into the left side of the crossover. Turn on the stereo system.
If the right channel continues to work then you know the problem is in the RCA cables between the amp and the crossover. esting for a Crossover or Equalizer Problem At the input of the intermediate component (in our case the crossover) flip the RCA cables around (left to right input and vice versa). Turn on the stereo system.
If the right channel continues to work and the left channel continues to not work then you know the problem is in the intermediate component. Replace or repair this component.
If the problem is now in the right speaker and the left speaker works then the problem lies before the crossover. Turn off the stereo system and return the RCA cables to their normal places.
Testing for a Head Unit or RCA Cable Problem Pull out the head unit from the dash so you can access the RCA cables. Unplug both RCA cables from the head unit. Do not disconnect any other wiring. Plug the right RCA cable into the left channel of the head unit. Turn on the stereo system.

I am using my speakers connected via the front speakers panel on the back of the machine, I don't know if it matters but they are connected as left and right using "A". So, my left speaker is...


I presume you have proven the channel is dead by trying multiple sources, swapping a different speaker onto it and that the balance control is NOT all the way to one side; headphones don't work either and we're down to proving it's dead before you take it in to a tech, right?


There is the slighest chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.


If it still doesn't work you might want to prove if its a low-level signal loss or a high level amp failure. 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

They are makeing a constant sharp noise a loud high pitched hum if you will


Right-click on the speaker icon in the lower right of your screen and choose Open Volume Control and check all volume levels (make sure they are not set to high). If this doesnt work then when you right-click, choose Adjust Audio Properties and search around for volume controls (maybe try the Speaker Volume button).

Audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones


It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck

Strange problems with Z-2300's


I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:

Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer Turn off the main switch Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob Repeat again (2 times) Replug the control pod Turn on the main switch and the control pod See what happens

I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.

Channel 2 volume is very low


You can check if channel 2 is blown by switching around your RCA plugs. If you are using the speaker wires as high power inputs you can change them. I.E. swap the left channel with the right one. I assume you checked the gain control on the amp. If channel 2 works with channel 3's inputs then its your head unit or the wiring. If you are lazy take the amp to a car audio store and ask them to bench test it for you. Hack
