Left audio channel not working

Set up system again after being in storage for some time. The front left audio channel has no sound - the same speaker and cable works if plugged into another channel (say front right), and speaker that works in another channel has no sound when plugged into front left. Multimeter says voltage for Center and front right are about -25 mV, front left -100mV. Checked connector links to circuit board, both +ve and -ve seem okay. If speaker is connected to +ve of front right and -ve of front left, the is audio for front right. If speaker is connected to +ve of front left no audio. Any ideas what may be the issue / which components or settings to check? Thanks Tim

SOURCE: no sound from front right and left speakers

you may have a dc condition present on speaker outputs. this could be caused by dry solder joints, suggest blanket resolder of the output stages for front channels.

Most TV stations you watch don't send a surround sound mix so you won't get anything in the back speakers. DVDs generally all have a surround mix which is why it sends to all speakers. What you are experiencing is normal, Bob.

Surround Sound System Settings ---- Correct Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Audio

A correctly set surround sound system can yield dramatic improvements to your
home theater sound or multi-channel music listening experience. In particular,
a correctly set time delay setting between the different channels is essential
for a realistic and unified surround soundfield.
Luckily, most of today's surround processors make setting the time delays
between the rear and the fronts a matter of a few entries in the setup menu.
Yet having a proper understanding of the principles behind correct time delay
settings is essential for the best results.
In this guide, we explain the principles behind time delay settings in surround
sound and show you how to adjust your surround processor or AV receiver for the
best surround sound field.

Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Surround Sound Systems

Correct home theater speaker placement and properly balanced sound levels
between the different channels in multi-channel audio, while crucial, are not
enough to sustain a unified soundfield in a surround sound setup. A correctly
set surround sound system requires that sound from all the different speakers
reach the listener at exactly the same instant.
This explains why all fronts, left, right and center channel speakers, should
be set at exactly the same distance from the listening position. At the same
time, in a typical home theater setup, the surround speakers are closer to the
viewer than the fronts.

To compensate for this distance discrepancy, surround sound playback systems
apply a split-second delay to the surround sound channels.

Onkyo HT S3300 center, left front and rear speaker not working.


check your speaker wiring, make sure both terminals are connected properly. or could just be left speaker is disconnected. and is set in stereo mode which will only play left and right front and Sub, if you have one. try chaning the surround mode to play in multi channel speaker which will send sound to all speakers. i trust your using a Digital audio cable from your source ( cable box, DVD player) if your using analog audio cable you will only get stereo sound, and nothing will ever come out of the rear speaker unless you change the surround mode to multi- channel speaker. also in the setup menu you should be able to perform a speaker setup, make sure all your speakers are able to produce sound. follow speaker setup mode in menu, make sure you have checked the boxes or Yes to speaker you have in your system. then perform calibration and a test tone will come out of each speaker as you select them.

I have a Sanyo DCTS760 surround system. A couple of weeks ago i got a loud static noise coming from the front left speaker. I tapped gently but forcefully on the top of the reciever cabinet and this ,...


Hello,

if the left front channel is not working, first test the speaker with the right channel that is working to make sure the speaker is still good.

If the speaker is good, then it means the fuse of the left channel has burnt. Open the receiver and check the left channel fuse.

Good luck.

No sound from front left channel


Try swapping the connectors for front-left and front-right (just swap right at the back of the amp)

After the swap, does the front-left speaker work, and now the front-right is dead? If so, then it's a problem in the amp.
If not, then the problem is in the wiring and/or the front-left speaker itself.

Post back here with your findings, and we'll troubleshoot whichever part of the system is broken.

Front right speaker got wet, started cutting out. at the same time the rear right speaker started cutting. switched the rear speakers to opposite channels and this caused the right to work and left to cut....


the speaker getting wet will short it out. Shorting the output on any amp will ruin it. there is a right and left chanel with 2 outputs. Right chanel is damaged.

Weird surround sound speaker behavior with Denon 2105 7.1


Sounds interesting.
It may sound silly, but can you check all your speaker cables again and confirm whether they are connected to the right connections. please check all cables as also the severed one and please repair it also.

Now please go to the system-set-up and do an auto setup and set up your speakers. Listen to the test tones and confirm that they are coming out of the correct speaker.

Once these are set, then if still there is mismatch of sounds, then we could further trouble shoot.

Reciever only allows 2 channels(speakers) at a time.


If the amplifier is not receiving a surround sound signal, you will get nothing from the rear speakers and probably nothing from the front centre. Play a dvd in dolby surround and it will work.
