One channel not working (no output) when useing various modes
I had a similar problem, now to be honest there is quite a couple of things that could be faulty. I dont know which cable you are using between the source and the amp, but i am using RCA to mini jack.
I had the same problem that my tuner on amp played through all channels dvd as well, but as soon as i hook up the amp to my computer only some of the chanels played.
I found out that there is actually mono and stereo versions of of that cable thus, if you use a external source and channel it trough the amp with a mono cable, only some channels will be playing.
If you use a stereo cable both channels will work.
The other problem could just be a simple setting on the amp itself.
Usually you can set the number of channels you want the amp to be set on. It is very simple, locate this function an try every setting untill you hear that all channels are working.
It could also be an "ic" on the heatsink of the amp which overheated, if you open up the amp you will be able to see it instantly. This will explain the slight sound you manage to hear.
My advice is to try the first and second sollution and as a last resort send it to a repair shop or if you still have warrenty send it back. I doubt that it is a hardware problem on the amp itself.
Please rate this.
