    I run a cable from my PC to RCA jacks in back of Fisher 400, but audio cuts off on one speaker after about 5 minutes. The other speaker continues to play. It only happens when I use this set up. I tried a new cable and the same thing happens. I was using this set up on my Fisher 500C with no problem. It's just music that I'm listening too off youtube.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you

    Does the same thing happen when using other RCA jacks? Have you tried a different RCA cable? What if anything else are you doing besides listening to youTube on the PC when the speaker cuts out? Thorne

    PS - I just realized you have a 400. I'm not familiar with the jacks on that unit. Usually AUX and TAPE are different jacks.

    So FM stereo works fine for example?
    If true, I'd think your selector switch contacts need cleaning.

    Yes, and I hooked up the same cable to my Motorola Smart phone and listened to Youtube for 2 hours with no problems. Something about hooking up to my laptop causes the Fisher to shutdown audio to one channel. Odd

    Try the same set up using the Tape Monitor inputs and see if the same thing happens.

    Let us know!

    The selector may have gotten dirty. Or there is a bad connection somewhere.

    Did you try the Tape Monitor inputs and setting?
