I just noticed today that the right channel is not working correctly. Sound is comming from the right side, but it is barely audible. Anyone?

Ask a stupid question, but it's got nothing to do with the balance or fader has it!?

Check the connections behind the head unit. Make sure that every thing is tight.
Good luck.

The speaker connectors are fairly straight forward, at the speakers and at the headunit. But as Paul says, check your fader controls. Don't always think the worst, we have all done it in the past, haven't we? anyone?

Yeah, its not the fader controls, and everything seems to be tight behind the head unit, any thing I should be looking for specificly, the weird thing is that they come in, but very softly, maybe a misfunction in the head unit of sorts... Its not the speakers, because I just put new ones in the otherday.

Another possibility could be that in certain radios, mainly older ones, the inbuilt amplifier has fuses to regulate power output. This was so that the radios which were considered then to be powerful didn't blow the lesser speakers. Try opening the headunit and look for the amplifier. Usualy found next to the heatsink(long or fat piece of finned metal. Look closely at the circuitry around it, there maybe two or four small glass radio fuses(usually 2A if you have to replace them). If not the headunit may have simply blown the right channel amplifier. The reason why i think it could be fuses as the sound doesn't necessarily go away but seems very quiet, distant, almost like you are listening to a LW radio broadcast. Best of Luck!

edit, I took a look and cant find any glass tubes, not suprisingly though, its the 88 clarian unit, maybe the right channel is gone, oh well...
