Hi, My NR1501 is a mess.
I bought it secondhand and at first I was unable to get 7.1 audio working(independent of input), but stereo did work so I settled for that.
Now however my right channel stopped working as well.
even when using radio, so without inputs used.
Also when I use Aux and turn on the device, then I first have to switch it to radio for the relais to click, and back in order for it to give sound at all.
I think digital in might not work either, but that might have a different cause because I have no other devices to test my digital out with, so i cant be sure about that.
What would be the most likely problem?
What parts should i just replace and check if it helps?
I am able to solder and replace or bypass parts, but troubleshooting and measuring and really knowing what im doing is a whole different thing.
There is also something curious going on that might or might not be related.
My original setting connects a pc to a external usb 7.1 audiocard. From there it connects to a minispeaker over the headphoneconnection which i normally use, and over the line out I connected the amplifier which I turn on occasionally to listen to music. The curious part is that on the minispeaker the right speaker has stopped working also (and just when I connected my headphone just now (a day after it broke) instead of the minispeaker (which I had connected and disconnected multiple times) just now to rule out if its the minispeaker or the output, both the minispeaker and headphones work again full stereo) .. anyway, so I think the soundcard might be getting feedback or so from the receiver..
