M1 - Volume Slider Only Controls Right Output

Post by footsandersen » Fri Jul 12, 2019 6:53 pm

I picked up an M1 and the volume slider only effects the right channel output. When I turn it all the way down, the left channel does not change in level at all.

I've replaced the slider, but the issue remains. Whats the next step?

I don't know if the volume slider on the M1 was analog - I assume, yes. (Is it a stereo pot?)
Sounds like the right attenuator does not have contact to ground (to pull down the signal towards ground), check for broken/cracked traces or cables.
