Sound in only one speaker
With a music CD playing, and the volume on the SA-404 set to a lower (but audible) level, try the following steps while closely listening for music from the speaker that is not functioning (some crackling or screeching sounds may be heard when removing and reconnecting the cables).
Remove & reconnect the traditional RCA type audio cables that originate from the CD player at the connection point at the rear of the SA-404 several times. If the cables can be removed from the CD player, do it to that end too if no music is heard. If the audio cable is a single coaxial dolby digital type carefully do the same thing to it - at both ends if needed, too. The optical cables usually don't fail the way you describe so if they're being used it may be a problem with the CD player.
You might also try moving the RCA type cables to a different input (try TAPE or another available input) if the previous steps don't solve the problem. If the problem is present on the new input (TAPE or another available input), the issue lies with the cables or the CD player. Try connecting with NEW cables to the CD input. If still failing - try TAPE input again. If still not working, I would feel comfortable saying the CD player has some sort of problem.
