Pioneer A-209R loss of left channel


Standard Member
My 2 year old Pioneer A-209R has lost completely its left channel output for no apparent reason. The right channel is fine and the balance control works normally. I've removed the cover but can't see any burnt out, loose or broken components. Any suggestions (other than the bin!)?

Have you tried it with various inputs?

Have you tried swapping the speakers to see if the problem changes sides?

If it has a headphone socket, does it show the same symptoms on that?

Hi thanks. Yes I have tried swapping the leads from the speaker outputs, I have tried both the "A" outputs and "B" outputs, and have also tried using various inputs, but still no left channel. Unfortunately I don't have any headphones so I can't try that socket. Regards.
