Probably should be in Geeks forum, but not everyone frequents it...

My stereo has a Left and Right RCA Aux input, and I wanted to play music from my phone through it. So I bought one of those 3.5mm jack to twin RCA plug leads, but it only plays through one speaker (and the woofer). How can I get it to play through both speakers?

Sorry if I got any terminology wrong, I know fack all about this stuff.

You need to get a step up transducer stereo DAT converter LAN lead. 8)

It's a valid point from Gavin (a phrase I use rarely!)

Push it into your phone a bit harder.

JIC. Possibly buy a lead with a smaller plastic surround on the 3.5mm jack. The Original Iphones had to use them IIRC.

Er

You did buy a stereo jack plug, with *two* black lines on it, not just one?

Not

If the sound isn't coming out of one speaker, rather than being mono out of both, then I suspect this is not the problem. Also, how many stereo RCA to 3.5mm leads would be mono?

The lead has two black lines in it, and was definitely pushed in far enough. I remember trying to do something similar with an ipod and bought a lead that went into the proper slot on the ipod and then into both RCA sockets, and in that instance it only played out of the one speaker as well. Maybe the problem is stereo related.:?

I have no idea. He's clearly DIW.

It might be coming out of one mono though. I played a few tracks and they sounded normal. I also moved the balance on the stereo to the other speaker and it just went to silent, while switching it all to the working speaker sounded the same.

Try swapping the jack plugs over and see if it works in the other speaker instead.

burn it all and start again.

I often drive for a road travel

I'll try that tonight (not the burning thing, the swapping the plugs).

Much blasphemy ensued, and some menace, which I stopped by dismounting and opening the carriage door, and intimating an intention of mending the road with his immediate remains, if he did not hold his tongue. He held it.

Si means swap the RCA leads over. Sounds like either the wire you're using is broken internally (though usually they crackle a bit if so rather than just giving up), your phone isn't working (is it OK with headphones?) or it's not pushed in far enough.

Or the stereo's broken.

I know, that's what I was going to try (swapping the RCAs over), to see whether it still came out of the left speaker.

The wire is brand new, it's a possibility, but as it did the same thing with the two RCA ipod adapter I doubt that. Phone gives stereo fine with headphones.

My money is on a dud RCA socket, or some internal menu setting being screwed.

But two dud new wires is entirely possible.

Definitely, if they're from the same batch.
