Question about Marantz SR-5200 Receiver
You can hear a slight sound of the channel attempted to work for a split second, then it doesn't . In bypass mode, both channels work with all inputs ie. CD,DVD, tuner. When you de-active bypass, and use stereo mode (I currently only have the speakers hooked up to the front channels for stereo playback), only one channel can be heard regardless of the source used.
I have unplugged it and will wait the 24 hours or more to let it reset. However, it was not used for some time before I recently purchased it. When I checked it out it was working. Other than takeing the lid off to blow out dust etc.. I did nothing to it. Speaker wire is hooked up ok etc..
I had a similar problem, now to be honest there is quite a couple of things that could be faulty. I dont know which cable you are using between the source and the amp, but i am using RCA to mini jack.
I had the same problem that my tuner on amp played through all channels dvd as well, but as soon as i hook up the amp to my computer only some of the chanels played.
I found out that there is actually mono and stereo versions of of that cable thus, if you use a external source and channel it trough the amp with a mono cable, only some channels will be playing.
If you use a stereo cable both channels will work.
The other problem could just be a simple setting on the amp itself.
Usually you can set the number of channels you want the amp to be set on. It is very simple, locate this function an try every setting untill you hear that all channels are working.
It could also be an "ic" on the heatsink of the amp which overheated, if you open up the amp you will be able to see it instantly. This will explain the slight sound you manage to hear.
My advice is to try the first and second sollution and as a last resort send it to a repair shop or if you still have warrenty send it back. I doubt that it is a hardware problem on the amp itself.
Please rate this.

Keep the TV in stereo mode to get the best sound quality. The sound will work in stereo
mode even if a certain broadcast is in mono sound only.
Choose the mono setting to reduce excessive noise on a certain channel or broadcast.
Selecting SAP will allow you to hear an alternative soundtrack, if one is available.
