Question about Amplifiers & Preamps

Sound from one speaker only.

Help. I have a Technics SU-X501 amplifier in black and I only get sound from one speaker. When I connect each of the two speakers individually,I have sound from each individual speaker,but when both are connected up just one speaker works. Through headphones,it sounds like both speakers are working.
When both speakers are connected and I move the balance from left to right,again just one speaker will take over (could be either speaker).
I have followed 'Big Reds' instructions,but still no joy. Please help...single mum.

Re: sound from one speaker only.

Su-x501 turning off intermitently

If your unit is intermittent, check the speaker wires on the back of the amplifier for stray threads of wire, next! the printed circuit board underneath should be checked for bad or cracked solder joints, finally one more parts are defective, tough problem to nail down, recommend technician.

Hi I just got a Technics SU V2 amp and can't get sound from the speakers. What size speakers would suit this amp? What is the correct method to connect the speaker leads to the back of this amp,...

Being a 500W amplifier, you need to connect speakers with 300W each. The correct method to connect speakers is red terminal of speaker should be connected to red terminal of amplifier & black to black. The left side to left side speaker & right to right speaker. There may be main & remote terminals. Main speakers are the speakers at local place of the amplifier & remote for remotely placed speakers. I do have Technics SU-V85A which is somewhat similar. Enjoy! A nice piece to listen.

I want to no how to wire the hole system up just picture diagram SU-X501

This appears to be a tough one to find for free. There is some info out there - but it will cost a few bucks. The service manual or sometimes called a "shop manual" is for those that work on damaged units - and is probably over the top for your needs. The operating manual or owner's manual is likely the same as the one that came with the unit when new. Either can be had at the site below for $15 and $10 respectively:

I am not affiliated with this or any other site that charges for manuals, tips, advice, etc.; and only offer it as a source for the info you're looking for. I hope this helps!

Technics SU-G95 Amplifier and no sound on left speakers

Usually this is a defect in the output amp IC. If you have no experience with repairs of these types of units, have it checked by a service shop. If the output AMP IChas failed, it will cost about $75 for a replacement. This unit uses an RSN3306P IC .

Technics su-Z750 Intergrated Amplifier stays in Standby

This happens when one or more components in the power amplifier section has failed.

The protect circuit keeps large DC voltages off the speakers.

The only thing you can check for before finding a tech is that the speakers are firmly connected at both ends. If they are ok, you need a tech

Channel has switched off.

Make shure speaker wires are not crossed at amp or at speaker terminals. Check balance control is at center. Check sound with headphones to see if final amp to speakers is the problem. Try switching imputs on back panel from right to left see if same speaker is on,.Try all loudness controls and tape dubbing buttons to see if any are dirty.
Good Luck
