I'm fairly new to the world of receivers and speakers, and brand new to this site (I don't know if this is even the right forum to post this in). I'm trying to learn as I go and I could use some help. I have an Onkyo TX-SR 602 receiver and just bought a pair of Polk Monitor 50 speakers. I hooked the speakers up and they were working fine, but while I was turning the receiver around after connecting the speaker cable, the left speaker crackled, and the receiver turned itself off. Now I can't get any sound out of the left side. I know it didn't blow the speaker because I switched the left speaker over to the right, just to see if it still worked, and it does. Does this mean that the main left channel is likely dead and I have to send it in for repair?
Any advice would be appreciated, 'cause I don't know what to do right now!
Thanks a million!
