    Default Receiver only playing through "right" speakers

    I have a Sansui G-3500 receiver that I just picked up the other day, it has eight speaker contacts, room for 2 sets of 2 speakers. It will only play through the "right" contacts for each set. I'm only playing two speakers but it sure would be nice to have stereo sound. I don't have a whole lot of know-how when it comes to this, but I checked the fuses and all three of them were intact. Anybody know what's going on?

    Yeah, when the balance is all the way to the left, I can just barely make out the sound from the speaker. Barely audible though.

    I'm not sure if this applies to your exact model but I have read about older sansui's being very sensitive to being shorted out. Once it has been shorted (eg. strand of bare wire touching case...) they tend to blow one channel. That's probably why you only get power out of the right speaker terminals. Hate to say it but you might be hooped...

    If you just got it, are you sure that it is hooked up correctly? (not to insult your electronics skills) Make sure the left and right cables are inserted into the correct terminals. If that is the case, don't feel bad, cause I have done it before. If the balance is correct, then it may be blown. Hope that is not the case. Get a flash light and check and re-check you connections just to be sure. You never know.

    is it used? I"m assuming that it is used.

    a internal fuse may be blown. check that out. OR your left channel amp is blown. either way. have a qualified stereo service dept check it out. and clean it and set it to back to factory specs.

    The other sanity check might be to connect the left speakers into the right outputs and the right speakers into the left outputs. This is really just to certify that it is the reciever and not the wires/speakers.

    Yeah, I've tried all of the combinations, and then I listened to it through the headphone jack, and the result was the same: only coming in through the right.

    Sounds like a blown channel to me.
