Any one have an idea how to fix the denon ah ncw500 bluetooth issue? Wireless play only one channel but play normally on wired. Any idea? Tnx!
Unless you have a screwy setting on the broadcasting device (try other known good bluetooth devices first to rule this out), then your problem is highly likely the same as mine....
There are bendable pins within the headphone jack on the headphones that are used to determine when the jack is in use or not. They are cheaply made / designed to fail and when they do, this is one of the outcomes (the others are, no sound at all because both switching leads are broken/bent/coated, or no sound in the opposite speaker). Some people have had luck with compressed air and/or a small qtip dipped in strong pure alcohol (isopropyl or something, not drinkable alcohol that has sugars in it...) to clean the jack in the case it is gunked up / coated. But in my case it was physically bent (I presume) and cleaning did nothing.
I soldered the 2 pins/footpads in the far left corner when the opening of the jack is facing towards you (the right channel of the headphone was the one that was dead for me... i think, you could possibly need to fix the lead on the opposite side if your left channel wasn't working but I found the leads to fix mine by using a pair of tweezers to connect the leads while the device was running on bluetooth) jack itself together with a small piece of wire. Seems good so far!
Millions of devices are affected by this issue from headphones to laptops and micro-soldering totally sucks. This would seem to be a designed flaw....
