PLS HELP ME GUYS...URGENT NEED OF HELP

So here it goes...i had given my speakers for repairs to a store to fix the right side of the speakers..don't know if he was fooling me but he kind of screwed up big time...so the original problem was that the right side of the speaker had low volume..almost negligible...so i told him to fix that...first time he brought back,he just connected the left speaker wire to right & gave it to me...i told him i want the right side of music to come as well...he took it again saying he will change more chips inside...so i agreed...so now here is the thing..he brought back my speakers but somehow he synchronized the left speaker output to the right side as well...so suppose if a song is playing & one part of the song is on the left side of the speaker..now that same output is coming on the right speaker as well..but if a right speaker sound is playing..no sound comes at all..he says he brought back output on both anyway..first he blamed my computer saying something about surround sound prob,then later after showing him from standard xp sound control,he relented..anyway..now the thing is can this be resolved??Because any song or part which is on the right speaker is not playing at all..both the speakers are playing the same left channel output..pls help me...
For eg this vid on youtube
Speaker Test (Left and Right), Ensure that your left and right speakers are connected correctly. - YouTube

in this test my left channel output are coming on both left & right..but very less coming of right...what can i do??What is this problem?

can this be rectified?Pls help

most probably caps gone bad

recap the board with some nichicon/panasonic caps

You mean capacitors??That person told me some chips got fried...hence low output in right..but somehow he made left speaker output come in right speaker as well..can that be changed?
