    This is my first vintage stereo receiver I have owned and it has an issue. The left channel works fine in mono or stereo but the right channel while in stereo mode has 5% of the left channels output. Both power meters register the same and increase when the volume increases. When in mono mode the right side sound is great. I've only had the receiver for a few days and it needs a good cleaning. I was wondering if the stereo push button needs a good Detox cleaning or does this sound to be more serious?
    Thank you in advance

    Sounds like dirty controls. Could be any of them. Try operating every control many times to see if the channel comes back.

    It is probably one of the square buttons on the right side, like the dolby button. I always used to have issue with that or the tape monitor switches. It is a great receiver. Good luck.

    So when the RIGHT channel is down in Audible level at 5%, you are saying the output meter reads the same as the LEFT channel?
    So both meters are even and the right side sounds 5% of the Left channel?

    If this is the case, then I would be suspecting a speaker relay.

    If the sound is even on both channels when in mono, but not in stereo, then I would suspect something in the Pre-amp, and it could be anything as Rob says, Tape monitor, Stereo/Mono, Adapter, Audio Muting, Tone defeat....You need to work the switches to see if you can identify the culprit...
