    So one of my decks is only getting a mono signal into the mixer played with the RCA's and its as if the white cable does nothing.

    So how do I go about checking what it could be? I'm sure there is more than 1 thing it could be knowing technics I so should probably check everything that could possibly be the problem.

    Cheers!

    Noticed the actual metal casing/ring on the white RCA is ever so slightly bent making it look slightly oblong when looking directly at it. Really not too bad though but could this possibly be it?!

    Have you got a mono switch at the back stabbing in the dark hear as I'm sure mine have.

    I had this exact same problem and fixed it yesterday, my needle wasnt aligned properly, that or the rca out of the deck needed nudging coz i did both of those things.
    I was gonna try and replace the RCAs but saw how much of a hassle that would be to fiddled around first, I know its obvious but make sure your needles are tight and straight then unscrew the rca output in the back and make sure no wires are being squashed, might fix it.
