Hi Jscreamer

Turn the balance control from left to right, The sound should fade from left to right in the same direction you turn the balance control. If it does not, then you got em on the wrong way about. They often fit better the right way around too.

The left main channel not working. hook any speaker to it and putting my ear close, it has a very low hollow sound, almost a hum. would there be fuses, a reset, or something on each channel or something...


There is no seperate fuse but it seems likely that the left side preamp or the power amp section had opened up a fusible resisitor that could have shut the section.
Now the only way out is to take a voltage or signal test with the right - working- channel as a reference . Please attempt only if you are familiar if not it will end up with further damage as the sections are very delicate. Testing with a signal will confirm the faulty section to narrow down your search.

I have a Sony STR-AV770 receiver that has stopped its output of volume to the left side. Any chance of me fixing this on my own?


your question depends on how good you are at electronic diagnosis (symptom diagnosis) and how adept you are at removing and installing electronc components. first you have to determine why the amplifier has stopped working on the left channel. Make sure that the problem isn't a simple one, take the speakers off the right side and hook them to the left side and see if you get sound. If you do,, then the problem is the left speaker or left speaker wire. If you don't get sound then tyr taking the input that feeds the right channel and pluggin it into the left channel and listen for sound, if you get sound now the problem was the signal from your source not being sent down the left side.
If it still doesn't work you need to move inside the amplfier, but first, get close to the back of the amp and give a sniff, do you smell anything (a pungent burnt wire or rubber smell) if you do, the the chances are good that some components have burned out. Do you recall having a shorted speaker wire on the left side? shorted speaker wires are notorious (especailly older equipment) for burning out the final amplifer stage. If this was an expensive amp it might be worth fixing, if its not worth much then maybe you should consider religating it to use as a monophonic amplifier (one channel) you could use it to power a sub woofer in a hibryd stereo or surround sound system.
I don't know what more I can tell you at this point. If you go through the steps I outlined, and want to tell me the result I shall be glad to respond and maybe give you another direction to head in. good luck and I'm glad you are adventruous enough to want to try.

Only get sound out of right side both a and b


Good day sir, Hi, your Philips receiver trouble can be any of the ff:
  1. your receiver left fuse is blown, check if it has a user fuse at the back. or
  2. your main IC amplifier for the left channel is bad. you need to replace that IC, but check first the wiring of the speakers.
  3. Check your receiver left speakers if it is producing a soft hum, to do this turn down the right channel, or adjusting the balance knob to the left, or simply remove the speaker connection of the right channel. place your ears on the left speaker as you adjust the volume up and down, do you hear a soft hum that goes up and down also? If yes the problem is on the source section before main amplification, usually the pre-amplifier stage, If you hear no hum at all. problem with the main left amplifier. The main amplifier is usually a single IC for both left and right channel, OR one IC amplifier for the left and one for the right, in both cases, replace the bad IC.

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.

Headphones only have left channel on Denon AVR-588 Receiver


Hi peroty,

Two suggestions for you.

1. If you look at the headphone jack connecton do you see one or two black O-rings or black lines on the jack. If you only see one they are Mono headphones and you would only get sound out of the left side. If there are two black lines they are stereo headphones and you should get sound on both the left & right sides.

2. If after checking the headphone jack connection and there are two black lines on it then I would suggest try a different pair of headphones to see if a different set of headphones works fine.

If a different pair of headphones works properly the original headphones may be bad. If neither set of headphones work properly it may be the reciever that may need to be repaired.

I hope it's not the receiver, but let me know if you have questions.

I have a buzzing noise in my ear force x1 headset for xbox in the right ear.


If left channel is clean but only the right is buzzing then it must be a wiring or connection problem.
First try a different headset ,but if that does not cure the 'buzz' then a bit more work will be required with the stereo socket where you plug the headset!

Sound not coming from left side surround sound speaker or my right side front speaker


it is highly likely that you're TV is outputting mono sound, hence the left channel only. check your physical connections to the TV and the balance / channel volume on the television as well.
