my Onkyo is acting Wonkyo. Generally the right speaker is a little louder, and as I increase volume they even out. Just a minute ago though, the left speaker was full volume and nothing from the right. I turned the receiver off and on and now I have full right and no left, even with increasing volume. Huh.

This should be a matter of scrubbing some eletronics with rubbing alcohol or some such, right? I'm totally at a loss here but I can't afford anything new like this, pls halp. Pic related is not the exact model but super similar, I will have to look on the bottom to see what it actually is

Onkyo is probably the cheapest, shitiest brand of receivers on the market today. Every year we get dozens of calls just after Christmas because someone got one from BestBuy or as a gift or something and they have problems. They also don't last very well. So, if >>1239563 suggestion doesn't fix it then you might as well shitcan it. The cost of the repair will be greater than the worth of the unit.

If you want something that is reliable and aren't will to pay for a Marantz then get a Yamaha. Even used they are pretty decent. If you just want something stereo music then an old Kenwood or Pioneer will blow that POS out of the water in terms of sound quality.

its not from the market today though, its from the market like 25 years ago, when i think they were a bit better :)

I actually dont really need any "receiver powre" at all, this is just for my computer, I just need something to drive 2 bookshelf speakers. Ive been thinking about downgrading to a small ass thing, but I can't seem to find a good receiver that is not a standard large format?

Onkyo was never good. They were cheap. That has always been their only selling point. Why do you think you see so few of their products on the used market? They don't last. They have never lasted. The only reason they are still around is that they are dirt cheap and they make a lot of private label stuff. It is trash.

It looks like the volume pot just went to shit. They're usually just stereo pots, motorized if you have remote control. You can clean it, but it's best to replace it.
