This is a discussion on Low Left Channel Audio within the Windows XP Support forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. Hi Everyone,
I just noticed that i hardly get any sound out of the left side of both my speakers
I just noticed that i hardly get any sound out of the left side of both my speakers and the headphone/line out. I checked the volume control panel and it is faded to the middle. Is there anything else I can try, otherwise i guess its hardware.
Try turning the speaker wire, assuming it is a 3.5 jack. Also, try pushing the cable in a bit, not were the metal bit goes in, but where the wire goes to the plastic bit, which then goes to the metal bit. You may just have to adjust the balance.
Thanks for the reply, I tryed that and it made the headphones change just slightly for 1 second and then nothing changed. Since this is a laptop though the speakers are built in and there isnt any sound coming from the left channel through the built in speakers either.
