Question about Yamaha Audio Players & Recorders
Mechanical/Electrical contacts appear worn or are dirty and cause noisy connections across all channels disrupting listening and is very annoying cause it impacts randomly and appears to be deteriorating. Rest of the unit is functioning normally
There are a number of ways to fix this, a quick fix is to rotate all the controls through their full range(with power on) this will give a quick clean to the contacts. The best thing would be to get the unit serviced at a Yamaha Audio dealers. They may have to replace the failed control switches, This will be cheaper than replacing the complete unit. You could do this yourself, if you feel confident to replace the switches, they should be available by part number on the internet.

Sounds like the processor has locked up in the unit. Try powering it right down from the wall socket for a day to reset, and then retry operation. If that does not work, leave it disconnected for about 10 days to erase backup memory completely and then try again. Good luck. Don't forget to give me a "FixYa" rating if this works. If it doesn't, get back to me in here and we can talk more about it.

SOURCE: Sometimes only one channel plays
It sounds like you know what the problem is. Get it fixed.
Or try this temporary fix.
Or turn it off and manually operate the selector and all controls a thousand times to wipe the apparent oxides from their contacts.
