    Try plugging the right channel RCA plug (red) from the turntable into the left channel of the amp. If you get sound, then you are getting audio from the turntable's right channel, and the turntable is not the problem. Also, plug the left channel of the turntable into the right channel of the amp to make sure the amp right channel is working( I'm assuming you are getting audio from the left speaker). If you still are not getting sound from the right channel, then the problem is with the amp right channel - maybe a dirty selector switch or corrosion on the amp RCA socket. If you rule out a problem with the right channel of the amp, then I would double check the turntable wires. First check the terminals and wires at the cartridge Do a continuity check from the cartridge terminals to the RCA plug and see if you have continuity. It could be the wire in the tonearm or the connection from tonearm wire to RCA shielded cable.

Is the amplifer working OK? Go to the phono input and put your finger on the right channel. It should hum. if it does not, you might have lost the internal preamp for cartridges. If it does hum then you need to recheck the right channel wires, conections etc. Don't forget you can change the conections over and see if the left channel will come on the right side.
If it is the preamp you might find an IC is the cause. Often these devices here are static sensetive.

Mid ranged speakers dont work. Only the stock sub and dash speaker works.

Is there a loose wire on those speakers? If not they could be played out.

Rowe r92 sound problem

Moving the wire indicates the speakers are OK. Try reversing the 3 pin plug from the cartridge. If the problem stays on the same channel, it is probably a preamp board issue. If the problem switches channels, you have a bad wire to the cartridge or a bad cartridge.

try checking the speakers and speaker wires for any shorts, grounds or bare wires. just one shorted speaker or speaker wire will shut off the audio completely.

I have a brand new logic soundlab tx1002. it was hooked to a brand new radio and new speakers. When turned on, it is in protection mode. you get a popping sound from the speakers. we have checked all...

first disconnect one wire at a time, making sure the power is off. then connect power and check to see if your speakers are making the popping sound. when you do your speakers, make sure you disconnect both positive and negitive of each speaker at one time. when your amp goes out of protect mode you will have found your suspect wire. then trace to the issue. it could be as simple as crossed over possitive and negitive wires

Simply no sound from PC

Check if you have plugged in the stereo pin to the right port on the PC.
Open sound control (in control panel) and check if the both speaker(main volume) and the wave volume sliders are not set to the lowest.
