Loss of one channel to speaker

I have lost output to one speaker but get both channels on headphone socket. Switching input wires has no effect but when I press mono button I get sound from both speakers.
This is only happening on Phono input everything else works ok.

    Also worth checking that your speaker are wired in phase (correct connection of positive + and negative- wires to corresponding terminals) I just fixed mates C320 v easily. Firstly had cleaned all switches and pots with switch cleaning solvent and then when checking wiring realised that he had stripped the cables so far back that they were badly shorting out! eejit!

When you say switching input wires you mean your source? that you switch it? you only have switch problem, it is mechanical type swutch need to clean only, if still possible. i dont know if you can find replacement.

NAD 3130 one channel stopped working, tip what to do first?


May not be serious,first with good channel playing move all controls and switches on the amp,Dead spots can occur on controls especially if they are rarely used.balance controls,tape monitor switches etc so work them all.If fault doesn't clear try headphones,switched sockets can cause problems.next swap input signal leads,left to right. and if still no good try swapping over speakers left to right.STILL no sound? its the amp.Time for tools and a test meter.You can look for blown fuses but its never a good idea to replace a blown fuse without testing the circuit first.may cause further damage and put up the repair cost

Technics SU-G75, No Speaker Output, Headphones Work. So I woke up this morning to find that my roof leaked ...onto my laptop and stereo. I love this amp, bought it new with all accessories in 1993,...


The fact you have output from the headphones is a good sign. It shows the main amp is working fine. However water has clearly got inside something and affected it. The best course of action is to trace back the wires from the headphone socket and see if there is a relay or anything that could get water in it. If you do find something, try applying warm air from a hairdryer. The alternative is to apply a soldering iron to the solder conections of the device. This should get rid of any water inside. If all else fails you might have to replace the relay. But I would try a spray of Servisol first. Just in case some dust has got inside or mineral salt from the water.

One channel dead - Aiwa NSX-D5 (RX-N5K amp)


When you put your headphones in does it switch off the speakers? If it does it could be a faulty headphone jack.

No output from main outputs


apply a spray contact cleaner in headphone socket(the place where you put your headphone jack)-and insert the jack in and out many times because it maybe problem inside-check your speaker cable for good condition.and firmly connected.

Church System


Hi there Apostledavis

I don't know this specific system and you haven't mentioned whether you have just installed it or whether it has only just started causing problems but did work ok before?
However, there are a few things I would look at. I would also check the system right from the input bit by bit to see whether the problem is an input or output one.

1) Completely isolate the amp from all other equipment and connect a signal source to the left input only and then the right input only. If they sound much the same, the amp is probably ok. If they don't then the amp is probably faulty.

2) Check whether the monitors and amp both have weak output on the left channel.

3) Check and balance settings.

4) Check the speaker phasing.

5) Check all the interconnections, plugs and sockets. You could squirt some switch cleaner on a rag then wipe all the plugs before putting them back in the sockets.

6) Check the Behringer VU meters and make sure they indicate a reasonable balance on both channels.

7) Check that the channels sound ok when using headphones.

8) Check all faders and sliders by moving them vigorously to clear dust from the tracks. (Not applicable if digital, of course)

Hope this helps

Loss of Bass


Hi there, I would think that you have blown your bass drivers in the speakers. Sometime you may have a fuse which is blown in the speaker but this is not usual. Try on another speaker if you can.
