    Stereo HELP!

    I'm a noob when it comes to audio equipment and this forum. I just moved and brought my jvc bookshelf speaker system. When I hook it up and try to play a CD the left speaker sounds fine but the right one doesn't work. The subs are separate connections and work on both sides. The right speaker works when I plug it into the left speaker connection and occasionally when I get the right connection to work it makes the speaker connected to it blast a LOUD distorted noise that sounds horrible. Even if the volume is all the way down and I get it to work it is still loud as hell. Is there any hope of getting this fixed?

    Cliffs Notes: Right speaker channel on my JVC stereo doesn't work and makes the speaker hooked up to it BLARE distortion if it does. Even with no volume.

    CD only? So the radio works okay? If so - see if you have an external input - buy a portable CD player and use that.

    If the radio and all other inputs do the same thing -

    Try swapping the wires (since you moved - you *may* have pinched or shorted them)...

    If not - it is the receiver. Try a repair store (but hard to find now-a-days...) or consider (if it is old enough) just buying a new one. The model is - if it will cost more than 60% of the replacment cost to fix it- just buy a new one...

    If the unit has pre-amp outs - you may get away with just buying a new/used receiver and keep using the old CD player as an input....
