Question about RCA RS2531 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Speaker Balance Trouble

Just recently I noticed that anything I play through my stereo sounds like it's coming only through the right side. After further investigation, I found that sound was coming from the left side, just extremely quietly. I disconnected the speakers and checked the contacts and they seemed fine. After reconnecting, the problem still continued. I think it has something to do with the balance control, which I cannot find.

How do I adjust Left-Right speaker balance on Sony MHC-771 Shelf System? My speakers are mounted the way that I am closer to one of them and I need to compensate for that. Thanks Tom

If you have balance controls for each speaker decrease the vol. to the one closest to you. If you do not have separate balance controls , the one closest to you must be muffled so that the sound will be absorbed and will not sound as loud as the other speaker.

I have a sa-ak320 stereo that was left at my gf's

The 6 ohm speaker would make it slightly louder but won't solve the problem, you are right the stereo has bad audio output ic, and there is trouble with the cd player. I would use it until it goes, and get a brand new unit, not cost effective to repair.

What does it mean when my JVC stereo system comes on but there is no sound coming out

The problem is in the audio output ic, "loading system" first check that the speaker wires are not shorting, If okay! the audio output ic must be changed.

The Graphic Equalizer pattern control is not working correctly - I can hardly hear the vocal on my CD's when playing even though I've selected vocal. Vocals are outplayed by background music.

That sounds more like a polarity, or phase problem. Make sure your speakers are hooked up correctly, with the correct colors going to (+) positive, and (-) negative. Make sure your rca connection are correct, and that every connection has a left and a right. No stereo-to-mono adapters.

Is setting to "vocal" an eq selection, or a "dolby" stereo selection?

Are you using a dolby surround stereo receiver with left, right, center, rear, etc.?? If so, try turning off any effects, or anything that would send signal to the center speaker.

Lastly, depending on what the source of your music is, it is possible if your connections or receiver settings are not correct...that the music upon playback will be out of polarity, meaning the vocal portion will cancel out. Combining left and right signal together can sometimes do this as well.

I have a memorex stereo, turntable, 3 cd changer etc. The standby light comes on but no sound, it is only 2 yrs old..

Sometimes you have to unplug it for about 30 seconds, then when you plug it in press the power on button. If there is still no sound, check the speaker connections on the back they sometimes come loose.

Low Volume from right speaker of entertainment center - turntable only

Hi There thanks for your very good desctiption of the problem it really helps to have a lot of detail...

There are Mono and stereo types of stylis cartridges and it sounds like you have a mono equipped into a stereo amplifier..

If there are 4 small coloured wires visible under the stylis then
its a stereo stylis and should work, have a close look and maybe one of the small wires has dropped of the small pins on the back opf the stylis cartridge.

If there only two wires visible then its a mono cartridge and this is why you only have sound from one channel..

So answer is wires dropped of the stylis.
Wrong type of stylis cartridge.
if there are four wires and thay all look connected then perhaps the stylis is faulty and you need to replace it...

Cheers from YU BEUT

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.
