Sound only comes out of left channel, only dvd player works
Everything set properly originally. Kids got ahold of remote & now the sound comes out of left channel only. Went into system setup and tested speakers, and they all are connected but now the sound only comes out of the left speaker, and all others are silent. In addition when try to switch to tuner. It tells me that I am on the tuner but there is no radio playing, it is still the sound from the dvd player.

Re: sound only comes out of left channel, only dvd player...
I would Initialize Unit back to factory settings by turning off main power switch then hold both 6.1/7.1 surround and direct buttons ( they are next to each other near main power switch) in while turning un main power switch. Hold both buttons until you see all lights light up. Then check functions and setup like you bought it new.
Owners manual also explains how to initialize receiver

the unit requires original remote for all its functions to work properly.as with other same type of remote the unit is detecting the remote but that remote is not completely supportive to your remote.each remote has its IR code.that IR code supports that particular brand model of unit.the remote which you are using is having bit different IR code from the original remote.so the unit is not detecting all the command from that remote.
try getting the original required remote made for this unit.

Try a new patch cable between the receiver's input and the device your using.Also try swapping out the left and right speakers. If the left side still isn't working it's probably the output transistors in the amp and they will need replacement.
The dvd player is responsible for reading the surround sound track, and sending it to the receiver. First make sure you are playing the surround sound track on the dvd, many have a stereo track too. Next, try another dvd and see if you can play surround sound on that one. If you can't play surround on ANY dvd I would start looking at the audio connection from dvd to receiver. Are you using an optical cable? Red, white, and yellow RCA cables? Optical will transmit any sound over only one cable, RCA cables need one cable for each channel (LF, C, RF, LR, RR, sub.) If your connections are correct, is the receiver set to play a surround sound track? Is it set in 2 channel mode?
It sounds like you don't have your surround sound source set up properly (your DVD player is not set up for PCM sound).
the best quality audio will be to set up either digital or optical audio between the DVD and the receiver.
Once you have connected the optical or digital audio cable between the DVD and receiver, you have to go into the DVD player audio setup and change it to PCM digital audio or you will not get surround sound. DVD players are not set up by default to output surround sound.
The headphone is tapped before the final stage of the amp, so knowing that those work properly helps to isolate the problem. I think that this model uses an IC for the voltage amp section prior to the final amp stage. That being said, the IC is probably an UPC2598 (if memory serves). I'll confirm tonight. Try resoldering any connections that appear to be grainy or have rings. Let me know what you find.
No need to play down...many guys are just as untechnical.
Players have three connections. Typically, your tv has similar inputs located on it and plug in goes color to color. Yellow is the video. Red is always the right speaker (on any system). White is the left channel. Insert a known good DVD and press play before you actually do the switchover so you can see it working in the next step. Now...set your TV to component input (it may be TV/Vid on your remote). Your TV manual should tell you how to do this. There may be more than one input...press that button again. It will come through.
If your tv doesn't have these connections, there are similar ones on your VCR...you can 'play through' by setting component input and then getting the VCR to send it on through on a TV channel. Start with the VCR tuning a channel and then switch over to component...Same deal...start the DVD first.
