    Whats happening fellers, Ok heres my delema I got an older Yamaha 5.1 surround sound receiver that the whole left side don't work ! Ive heard from a few people its totally worth fixing and not that hard. So my question for you electronics wizards is #1 is this an easy fix for a kinda sorta beginner? Number 2 what do I test and where is it located ? This will be my first attempt at ever fixing a receiver so lets see how this goes lol . I don't have the info on the receiver accessable right now but I will later after I obtain the info from grandmas house lol. Right on and thanks for all your help

    The first thing you have to do, is Google your make and model number, and get a schematic on the electronic components in it.
    The next thing you do, is without the power plugged-in: open it up and look for any physical damage to any of
    the electronic components in it that might help diagnose the problem.

    Let me work on that for a while.

    In the meantime get the service manual from here :
