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.
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.
Check the speakers if they work. Connect the speaker terminals using a short wire to a 1.5 volt battery (AA or any dry cell batter) and listen if there's a thumping sound when the wires are connected to the battery terminals. If there's no sound, your speakers are busted. If there's a sound, check if the wires are okay. Use the same method with the battery with the wires from the back of your stereo. Make a small cut on the wire and attach the short wires you used earlier.
THE INTERNAL WIRE CONNECTING BOTH HEADPHONES IS BROKEN. THIS PROBABLY HAPPENED WHEN TWISTING ONE OF THE HEADPHONES TO HEAR ONLY THROUGH ONE OF THEM. TRY FEEDING EEACH HEADPHONE INDEPENDENTLY WITH ITS OWN CABLE USING ONE OF THOSE PLUGS TO SHARE MUSIC FROM SAME SOURCE.
This could be one of two things. A wiring issue, or an equipment issue. Both are going to be difficult to track. If you used a harness to install the radios, then you are connected properly at the radio. The only way to see if it's a wiring issue is to remove the speaker and use a multimeter to see if signal is getting to your speaker through that wire. The other issue is that the anomoly of all your right speakers failing at the same time could have occured. Personally I think it's a wiring issue. This will be a difficult one to track down, but it can be done. If you are not electronically inclined, I recommend taking it to you local stereo shop. They have all the equipment to track these things down.
What has most likly happened in this case, is that either:
a) the wire has been tampered with, and has caused the left speaker to cut out,
b)the speaker settings are set to only play sound through the right speaker.
I recommend you see the bottom right of the computer screen, and look for the speaker icon. Right click the icon, and then select 'open volume control'. After doing this, make sure that all of the 'balance' bars(located at the top of 'volume control') are in the centre, and not at either side.
If this doesn't help, then I'm afraid you can only really purchase a new set of speakers, or have a fiddle with the wire, and see if there is a certain position or place the wire can be which makes both speakers work. If there is, tape the wire in a place/position which works.
yes, you can splice the cables and put on a new connector, goto radio shack with the old connector and im sure they will have one you can splice right onto it. ive done this many times with varios equipment "headphones speakers etc" it may take a couple of tries to get the wiring right but if its just one speaker there will most likely be just 2 wires, if you wire it up and it doesnt quite sound right, wire it the other way. speakers will work wired backwards but wont sound quit right so if it doesnt, rewire it and it should. good luck and i hope this helps!
if you swap the speakers and the dead one moves,than it is the amp that is missing a channel,in your case,it is the speaker.
if you try the good speaker in both speaker outputs,it should work on both to confirm the dead speaker theory.
there may be a broken wire in the speaker from shipping.
It sounds like you actually have 2 wires closely wrapped together. They are very fine and you have to make sure that you have separated all of the wires from each other. Generally you will have a red wire and a copper colored wire for the right side and blue (or green) and copper colored for the left side. you need to make sure that none of these little wires are still mixed with each other, otherwise you have a dead short and the speaker will not work. The insulation is very thin so there is no need to strip it, the insulation will burn off when the solder is applied
