Very low sound from all channels

The problem i am having is that although everything on the unit works perfect there is very little sound coming from the speakers to the point where you have to put your ear right next to the speaker to hear sound coming through it. everything else on the unit works fine and it does not blow fuses. This unit was costly in its day and i would like to get it fixed or know maybe some ideas as to the problem? Thank you michael

Have you tried changing the settings via the LEVEL button on the remote for EACH INDIVIDUAL SPEAKER?  Hope this helps!

One other solution is that the reciever has a "pre-out" and "main in" connection on the back meant for an external EQ to be hooked up, without the EQ you need to put jumpers from the outs to the ins

Without a model # it's hard to say what you have or what the problem might be, but since you said "in the day" I'll assume it's old enough to have a tape monitor function... Make sure Tape Monitor 2 is not on. Also make sure you are on the correct A/B setting.

    If you rated my answer unhelpful because you tried the suggestions to no avail, then it leaves only one possible alternative. The amp output transistors are shot and will need to be repaired by a knowledgable shop.
    Please alter the rating to reflect that your question is resolved.

Can I put a 1997 Astro Van AWD 4.3 Vortec motor into a 1998 GMC Jimmy?

There is no way that everything will be perfect. Although if you take you time and change over the sensors, maybe exhaust manifolds, etc. the motor should work. A little time looking it over several times when it is out of the vehicle will save you a lot of headache later. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

No sound is coming out of the laptop.

Opened the unit up recently and saw the problem: detached wire from the speaker. All it needed was a little soldering to attach the wire back to the speaker and presto! The sound was on again.

Speakers work with ipod not with laptop

First thing, you have plugged in to the wrong point, plug in the speaker to the headphone slot(mostly light green in color).

MIC point is specifically for MIC not speakers.

The point which works for your headphones would work perfectly for speakers.

No sound coming out of my laptop it's been working perfectly for almost a year until last week when I unplugg me headset and the sound is not coming out!built in speakers but if I plug in my headset it...

you could try to use system restore, to restore it back to an operational point before last week.

reboot with the headphones in, then take them out, then restart again.

Problem with speakers, Mac laptop MacBook 13" white

Have you made sure that the sound options in system preferences are all set, and not muted? Open system preferences, choose sound, go to the output tab. Make sure it's not muted or something silly.

If that's not it, and you're mechanically inclined, you can try opening the mac case and see if the speakers are disconnected. Although, I doubt they are unplugged.

No sound in rear speakers

I figured this one out, although I might still send it back for an exchange. It turned out that the right rear speaker works just fine, however the jack seems to be flawed. When fully plugged in, the rear speaker input only picks up the left channel. If you pull it out just a little, say 1/8-1/4 the way out it will pick up both channels. Not a good solution but it works for the time being.

No Sound Through Speakers

Hi Jake,

If you haven't done so already, I'd try double checking the speaker wiring, you may have some exposed or badly kinked wires behind the unit.

Terrible sound

Maybe your tape monitor button is pushed or something along that line of thought. Check all your switches and buttons in front and back of the unit for proper position.
