Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The right speaker channel sounds distorted. does that mean it's going to burn?
If it sounds like static, and the bass really effects the sound it is most likely going to blow.
I would suggest taking it easy on the volume or switching your volume settings so its more on the left speaker than that right, but still with sound coming out the right one. Just so you don't blow it as fast.

I had a similar problem and i took mine back to circuit city and they told me it was a blown channel, which made since because i was pushing the receiver very hard when i first bought it.

It could be a dirty control or switch, working them back and forth could prove that. Other than that, It's likely bad outputs. A unit that old may have transistors for outputs but might be IC's. Transistors can be tested with an ohm meter to see if they're good or not. Also if it has transistor outputs, they may have a small value resistor on the Emitters, check those as well.
Hope that helps...

SOURCE: center speaker
I had the exact same problem. In order to "almost" balance the center with the other channels I had to give the center +12db gain and the other channels -12db. So after I got that far with level calibration I tried some tv sound, well the center although was playing sounded like the highs were missing and a bit distorted. This is the good part, I turned the volume all the way up real fast, somewhere near max something fixed itself, the center became very loud. Now it works just like new. Hope this helps. BTW, the problem existed the same for sub channel, so when the center started working so did the sub.

Had the same problem. Another website suggested that the problem was that my speaker wires were too close to power cords. Turns out, my speaker wire was actually crossing over the surge protector!
I moved my speaker wires so that they were as far from power cords as possible and the problem disappeared. Not sure if this is a permanent solution but so far it has worked. By the way, this problem was driving me crazy. I originally thought it was due to a bad CD lens. Got the CD player cleaned was almost ready to buy a new receiver. Try this first before wasting money!
