    I have the same problem but its my right speaker, barely any sound when the left is at normal volume. When I plug the right speaker into the left output jack it works just fine, so the issue must be in the subwoofer box.

    I have the same problem. I got mine RMA but they didnt want the broken one so i played around with it. At the end is the control thats broken. I used my old speakers/subbufer with the new control and it works perfect. .

    I opened the control but i can't figure out whats wrong with it...

Googled the same exact prob. and found this forum. after reading through the postings to get some ideas, I went back to my speaker set and unplugged the serial port that hooks up to the remote. blew on the connector and plugged it back in and VIOLA! I got sound from the left speaker again! Must be my awesome, smelly breathe that woke up the left speaker....

I spent two hours trying to fix a very similar problem. For me it was a case of the green plug being dislodged. (Half way in, half way out).

What is you PID, P/N, M/N? There should be a couple, found on either the bottom of your subwoofer, back of your subwoofer, rear of control pod, or back of either speaker. This could help determine whether it is defective/recalled, or needs to be RMA'd.

10 years and first problem to repair. When you turn on and select DVD or any other selection a very loud cracking noise comes through right speaker only. So loud (with volume tuned off too) that I fear...


I think your receiver is damaged.

Try this.

Mark the speaker wires on the back of the receiver. label the speaker connected to the left channel "Left" and the speaker connected the the right channel "Right"

Also pay attention to the polarity (positive an negative) making some type of marking on your speaker wire so you can reconnect them correctly.

Disconnect both left and right speakers.

Connect the speaker wire that is labeled "Right" to the receiver's left speaker connections only then turn your receiver on.

IF the loud noise comes back, this speaker is damaged. I am guessing that the speaker is fine.

Now connect the speaker that was labeled "Left" to the receiver's right speaker connections and turn the receiver on.

IF the loud noise comes back like it did before but now playing through the "good" speaker there is a problem with your receiver.

If so, your receiver is 10 years old. Isn't it time for an upgrade? Try ebay for good used equipment deals.

Hello,
Thanks for the detailed explanation...
It seems to be there is a short or misplaced (+) (-) leads on the speaker connection you made..sometimes a tiny cable piece can make a short in between the leads and cause such problem..My recommendation is:
** take all the wires off..
** install only B speaker leads and test it..( make sure LEFT and RIGHT (+) and (-) leads properly
and individually connected to the right places on the back......it is important...This causes balancing problem..
** if it works fine...
** than go ahead and install the A speaker leads..and test it..
if you do everything properly both A and B speakers should work fine as independently ...

HI,
BASED ON THE INFO YOU GAVE I HAVE SOME SUGGESTIONS BELOW..

1, switch the working right speakers cable to left output and problem left to right (from the back of receiver -not from the speakers it self..) to see if problem continues..

2.After switching them ,if it (old left new right one ) still stops left speaker cable may have short ( a tiny cable inner pieces may touching to other side ) at either at the back of receiver output or at the end ,at speaker input .
make sure you control it carefully...if the problem persist please contact to me..

7.1 speaker setup: no sound coming from right front/surr speakers


Solution to having no sound coming from certain speakers in a 7.1 speaker setup for TX-SR606 receiver when playing a DVD.

Review the cable setup for the DVD player since it was identified as the source of the problem. Best to unplug and plug in the cables to ensure they contact the back of the receiver's RCA jacks. Redo the microphone setup for Audyssey 2EQ calibration. A good chance that it is the cable that may have caused the malfunction and loss of sound from the speakers. The cables can come loose during setup and not plugged all the way to the back of the RCA jacks or a defective cable causing signal loss.

Right side speaker barely works


Likely the control is old and dirty.  It is known as a rheostat on older units and often a little contact cleaner on it will work.  A simple thing to try that might work is to rotate the knob back and forth, left to right, each time going to full stop.  do this several, several times.  See if this makes things better.  Of course, the assumption I am making is that the right speaker is operating normally.  If you switch out the left speaker for the right, and the problem persists, on the same side, it is the receiver.  If the problem now appears on the left side, it is a speaker issue and not the receiver.  Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Speakers stopped working.


More than likely you have blown outputs, as the sound you hear when you touch the leads to the terminals is the DC offset of the power supply being routed through your speakers...accordianman
