: AUX input Problems

I'm having some problems with the AUX input, and I just wanted to know if anyone has had the same. I'm only getting the left chennel whenever I plug in my mp3 player. I know the player and cable are good, so I think it's the actual plug causing the problem.

Also, I can get both channels to work, but only when the cable is half-in. I'll probably be going to the dealer on Thurs, but I just wanted to see if I could get any info.

Thanks in advance,

I think you might be using a mono cable - not a stereo one.

The packaging on the cable should indicate whether it is mono or stereo, but you can also give 'em the eyeball test... A stereo cable should have two colored bands on the metal part of the plug ends.

If interested, I have a couple of 6' stereo cables left. These cables are shielded and feature RF chokes at both ends which makes for a far cleaner and punchier sound than cables that do not have them. They're $10 each, including shipping. Send me an email for more info or to arrange a purchase.

Yup, I'm a dumb***. I'll just go back to radioshack and get the correct one.
