Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The first thing is to make sure the speakers are bad. You can seitch them around from side to side if only one of them is bad, if the one speaker still has bad sound, thats your problem. You can also test the woofer of the speakers. Just push in on the woofer with your fingers to move the woofer in and out (with the stereo off). You should here nothing, if you do, the speaker is bad. If both speaker are bad, expecially if they went bad at the same time, the stereo is bad, expecially if you are getting the static with the stereo on and the volume all the way down. Going buy your problem I thing that your stereo is bad. It will need tobe repaired.

If it's a loud 60 cycle hum stop running it and have it serviced. This hum can be a shorted output which can send out 50 to 60 volts out to your speakers damaging them.

This is a good indication that the surround processing section has a problem. This can be anything from a supply voltage being missing to a defective processing IC. Without testing inside the unit, it wil be difficult to determine. With surround procesing turned off, the entire section is bypassed. This is why standard stereo mode sounds OK. The static sound is digital noise and can be poor processing or a bad D/A converter IC.
Hope this helps,
