You most likly have an audio output IC blown in this unit. Most self units under 200 bucks, are not worth the labor to repair them, but if this unit cost more then this and is less then a couple of years old, It may be worth investing some case to have this unit repaired.

I have Teac SL-D80 radio, CD player. One of its speakersLeftdoesn't, work.How to fix it? replace the speaker or wire?Thank you!

Unplug unit.
Open casing.
Look for loose wiring connector, otherwise:
Temporarily swap left and right speakers.
Plug in and play a continuous recorded tone of about 50Hz-440Hz.
Play with maximum volume to get a decent voltage reading.
If LEFT CH now works then L speaker is faulty.
If RIGHT CH now works then L amplifier is faulty.
Electrical test (needs a meter with Volts and Resistance).
With speaker still connected test audio (AC V) signal on working right speaker terminals.
Now check left Channel at amplifier board if possible, and at speaker terminals.
If no V unplug speaker wires if possible at board then test across board L+ and L- output pins.
Still nothing means amp is faulty.
Test continuity of speaker wires end-to-end. Each wire should be 0 ohms or close to zero. The continuity buzzer function can also be used for this.
With amplifier off and unplugged, remove speaker-connector from board or cut live speaker wire or unplug lug at speaker, whichever is easier. With one wire apart from the amplifier, test the loudspeaker ohms.
Should be in the range of about 4-8 ohms.
Most speakers have the rating screen-printed on the voice-coil magnet housing.
If ohms reading is way too low, say 0-1 ohm it has a short and is damaged.
If ohms reading is way too high, say several Meg-ohms, it has a coil break and is damaged.
Carefully join/tape any cut wires if applicable, renew speaker if faulty with same size and rating, re-test then re-assemble.


Front right speaker does not play checked wires every is hook up

If speaker is inoperable, possible cone or coil problem with speaker. Swap with known good speaker to rule out wiring/amp/stereo problem

My right audio channel doesn't work on one of my decks? How do I go about fixing it?

Hi Lawrence,
This is a common problem with failed speaker cables. Try swapping the other speaker to your right channel to see if that will work. If it does than speaker cable on the right is damaged. If the swapped speaker doesn't work as well, you need to check the joints from the RCA jack.

Hope this helps.

Pioneer DEH-P47DH Front left speaker not working, if i press audio button, i get no option to adjust balance, just fader. left rear speaker works and plays as loudly as right rear speaker. Huh? bad...

Are you sure you wired up the head unit correctly? It is fairly uncommon for a audio output amplifier to blow out leaving 3 working speakers and 1 not working. So more than likely it is bad wiring or a blown speaker. Best bet would be get a digital multimeter and ohm out the speaker and see if it has continuity and is the same as the adjacent speaker. You could also try swapping the left/right channel wiring and see if the front right speaker stops working when connected to the left speaker output or vice versa.

Right side speaker is not working

Most likely, ensure the balance is set correctly to the middle.
If this is set correctly, try swapping the speakers. If the bad speaker (the right side one) fails to play when plugged into the left side cable, then the speaker is faulty. However if the bad speaker now plays but the good one doesn't, its an issue with either the cable or the sound card. Replace them in that order.
Hope this helps, Benji

Speaker sound fuzzy

i would swap left & right speaker to verify its the speaker. if problem moves to other side speaker is bad. if only one speaker you must put external source to verify that voice coil is not bad.

Speaker Problems

Can you swap speakers and see if the left working speaker works when plugged into the right output?

If it does, then your right speaker is bad or the right speaker cable/plug may be bad.

If the working left speaker doesn't work on the right output, then I would suspect a problem in the right channel audio amplifier.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

No sound from left rear surround speaker

i think it would probably be somthing inside the channel???
