Question about Sony STR-GA7ES

Open Question

Right Channel Issue

Hi,

My right speaker channel (Front Speaker) is going bad - the audio is there but it's breaking up and has a static-type sound. I swapped speakers, speaker wires, changed selection from Speaker A to Speaker B, and I get the same result from either TV, radio, or CD player.

Thanks for your help!

John

SOURCE: Left channel out

probably I would say no. Unless you know how to read a schematic or know how to do certain small static checks on the output devices and the drivers as well as the power suppy feeding these devices.

SOURCE: both left and right speakers play audio for right speaker

I think you mean the left channel is out but when you use test tone, the sound comes from left and right channels through the right channel speaker. If this is case, the switching IC is malfuncting. Unit needs service

If you have checked the speakers and wiring, the right channel has a audio driver or output problem, which explains the low volume, static, and distortion. A service technician will be required to fix the receiver so it will balance the left side.

SOURCE: Sony STR-DE197 AM-FM Receiver. Has

Inside the Receiver there are electronic components mounted on the aluminum

heatsink ( Audio Output Power Transistors )



it may looks like these :



MN2488 ( Q753 )


palaboy_78.jpg



and usually paired with MP1620 ( Q754 )


palaboy_79.jpg



You may have to check on those two pairs of power transistors

and replace in pairs.


( which means if any of the two is bad , have them both replaced )




Check also the audio signal on the right channel input , if it

is on the same level of those of the left channel.



These components are available at:

No sound from Surround Back Right (SBR).


Bad wire, bad speaker or bad channel. Disconnect the wire from the amp. Using a 1.5v battery touch the wires to the battery briefly. You should get a pop from the speaker. If not get a different piece of wire and use it instead of the regular wire. If still no pop then the speaker is bad.

Right speaker channel doesn't sound clear anymore


If it sounds like static, and the bass really effects the sound it is most likely going to blow.
I would suggest taking it easy on the volume or switching your volume settings so its more on the left speaker than that right, but still with sound coming out the right one. Just so you don't blow it as fast.

Yamaha rx 530 center channel cuts out


Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.

Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.

So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?

Thanks

YAMAHA RXV350 RIGHT CHANNEL NOT WORKING

I have a yamaha RX-V461B AV receiver. I cannot get the the right front speaker channel to work. All the surround and center speakers work. Even when I run the speaker test, no static comes out from that...


There is no setting that would choose one front speaker to work differently than the other. The amp or something in the audio path within the receiver is failing.

Lux Audio 5.1 home theater speaker & Yamaha HTR 5540 AMP


configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

Static and popping from Harmon Kardon AVR 340


Hi,

You seem have a problem with a component in that channel, the bad news is that it is hard to fix that type of problem (you would be better off if the channel died). All of the components in the final output section are part of the same audio loop (per channel), which makes it hard to find the faulty part.

Sounds to me like a bypass or coupling capacitor is faulty or need to be re-soldered, either way to fix this problem you should take it in to a repair shop.

I hope that helps and sorry for the bad news.

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.
