Connect an AUX cable

Use the speaker output and plug it into the mic socket. Not ideal but the alternative is to buy a cheap adaptor for the end of the aux cable so that you can plug your speaker output into the aux input.

My logitech z2300 left & right speakers have a huge disparity in sound. Frankly, I believe the left speaker is just completely dead, if not busted. I want to know can logitech fix and/or replace it.

Call their customer service. If they want you to pay anything, it is not worth it and go buy new ones. If they are helpful, ask to see what they will do for free. Generally, if it is more than one year, they will not do anything for you.

Sony STR-DE685, home stereo, center speaker cuts out, as does left surround. tried everything. Worth fixing? or shitcan it?

It all depends on what's wrong it and if it's worth the price to fix it to YOU, doesn't it? If it's really broken only a tech can look at it and tell you the cost to fix it.

Have you eliminated the individual speakers and cables first? Or looked in the manual?

When i plug in my condenser, and the phantom power is on, none of the pan knobs are turned left or right, but for some reason when i talk into the mic, it is panned to the left. and when i record it does...

There is not enough information to go on here. A condenser mic is usually connected via XLR connections and receivers done have thaty type of input. Where is the phantom power coming from. Perhaps the wiring of hte XLR is incorrect for the equipment being used. (There are 2 standard connection styles). Can you update this with the equipment being used and how it is connected?

No Video or Audio on HDMI on Sony STR-DG800

The sony device may not be able to support the Toshiba. Make sure that is completely compatible and that you have the correct cables and setting to support everything.

Is the audio technica at2020 a sealed unit

No it's not a sealed mic... there are three Philips head screws under the label ring just below the pop screen. You can either peel up the ring and loose the Audio Technica logo and markings or, as I did, simply use a razor blade to cut out around the screw holes.

After opening your mic you can GENTLY peel the foam from the condenser film to boost performance and response but only if you have a very good pop filter.

STR-DE525 Blown fuse

Not very likely that you can fix it yourself with little electronic skills. You fried the channel you had it connected to. It will require the replacement of a lot of parts in the amplifer circuit. When a channel blows it has several transistors, several resistors, sometimes a couple of diodes and capacitors, and sometimes with the sony amplifers a pre-amp driver IC that will need to be replaced. You will require a multi-meter to determain which parts must be replaced, a soldering iron, some solder, and some solder wick to remove the solder from any bad components that must be replaced.

Any time you connect more than 1 speaker to a channel you risk over-heating that channel and shorting out some components. There are no amplifiers that are designed for more than 1 speaker per channel. I have repaired many sony recievers, including the one you have on several occasions, in the 18 years of working as an audio repair technician. With 2 speakers on the same channel you will draw double the amount of current thru the amp circuit than it was designed for. With 3 speakers on the same channel you will draw triple the amount of current and so on, and so on. I am really surprised that it played for more than just a few seconds with that many speakers on one channel. It must have been in really great shape to start with. I am sorry you did not know this before your party, it would have saved you some money.

Now the good news!

It should be able to be repaired. If all the speakers you had connected were really all on just one channel, you should have only one channel bad. This is a nice receiver as I am sure you must know, since you own it. It is worth getting repaired. As I have stated, I fix these for a living and I would expect the repair cost to be around $125 to $150 if it was taken to the service center that I work at. I can not be certain what another shop would charge, but this is a pretty good estimate considering I do not have it right in front of me to troubleshoot. Some shops are more honest than others, and there is always the chance that there may be more damage than what I would anticipate, or even less damage than I would expect resulting in a cheaper repair.

If you want to take a crack at fixing it yourself I would be happy to guide you thru it, but you would need the proper tools as I stated above.

I hope that you have found this information helpful, and if so, a rating of "FixYa!" would be appropriate and very much appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for offering people like yourself this free information and help.

Let me know if you want to try and fix it yourself, or if you have any other questions I can help you with.
