Name the make and model number first, then we'll get the manual. Then (maybe) a solution.


Maybe run it by the manufacturer

Left speaker channel sound intimitent


It may be as simple as a dirty volume control, Some contact cleaner will remedy that. but it may also be as time consuming as finding a bad solder connection. If it drops out with headphones on, suspect the volume control area and the preamp section of the amp. If it just drops out with the speakers, but not the headphones- look at the connections around the output transistors. If nothing is apparently broken, and solder joints are sound or reflowed with no change, get a can of "component chiller" and spray each output transistor of affected chennel, and the electrolytic capacitors in the finals and driver stages until it corrects and then replace defective part, though i suspect a bad solder joint to be more likely.. .

How do you balance sound between two speakers. Where is the balance control? JVC RX5000v


On the front panel ONLY:
1. Press ADJUST so that the MULTI
CURSOR up/down buttons work for
adjusting the sound.
2. Press MULTI CURSOR up/down
repeatedly until "BALANCE"
appears on the display.
3. Press MULTI CURSOR left/right to
adjust the balance.
• Pressing left decreases the right channel
output.
• Pressing right decreases the left channel
output.


please rate my solution.

Aiwa 8100 amplifier, low output on left hand channel, need to turn balance control way to left.


Aiwa xx8100??? What are the missing letters? Maybe it's a source or preamp problem, eh?


I presume you have proven the channel is dead by trying multiple sources, swapping a different speaker onto it and that the balance control is NOT all the way to one side; headphones don't work either and we're down to proving it's dead before you take it in to a tech, right?


There is the slighest chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.


If it still doesn't work you might want to prove if its a low-level signal loss or a high level amp failure. One way would be to run an RCA cable pair from the Tape Out to any other device (even a TV with speakers) you might have that accepts an audio input. If IT can't detect receive the DEAD Channel you

I own a Fisher X-202-B tube amp which I have restored with new caps. It played very well for 2 weeks,then one input section suddenly went dead. It doesnt matter if I use tuner,AUX or phono,there is zero...


i) It is possible that one of the electrolytics has been put in with wrong polarity. Check in the faulty channel preamp. It may have caused the HT to collapse in that preamp section - look for burnt resistor.

ii) Also compare the corresponding voltage on the anodes of the preamp valves in the working & non-working channels. This will tell you which area is faulty.

Volume at 10 produces very low speaker output.!?


It sounds to me that all you are getting is the pre-amp stage of the amp and nothing from the power amp stage. As it is on both channels then it is something that is common to both. This could be something to do with the power supply of the power stage. Or whatever is on the heatsink. It could be that the amp uses a single audio amp IC for both channels. If it does my bet is that it's gone. If it uses two sets of semiconductors for the right & left channel it would be highly unlikely that both channels have gone, but not impossible.

No sounds from the left speaker even with the balance turned fully to the left. all connection are fine.


Check the speaker, switch the left and right ones and see if the left speaker still has no sound. If it works the speaker is bad, if it doesnt your left output is bad...

NAD 302 stereo balance problem


I would replace the output transistors of the bad channel and any very low ohm resistors associated with them.
Whilst youre in there replace the electrolytic caps in the power amp section. Caps are cheap and plentiful.
I dont know what the rest of the circuit looks like but there might be a need to balance the DC offset after replacing transistors.

matelectronics.com and audiolabga.com carry many good replacement transistors.

Sound through one channel


Only the right channel had a sound,the left channel is mute, whatever adjustment you did and whatever balancing you done nothigs happen,even you interchange the speakers. The problem is in the power amp. The STK IC there is busted already, it's better to change it with a new one so the performance become normal again.
