Check for signal on the switch. Drive signal into the good channel and see which pins have audio. Drive signal into the other channel. Do you have audio on the other row of pins?

This is probably best done with audio or a test signal that has more than one frequency.

2mS, not uS. Try lowering the voltage to 1v. Disconnect the speakers and drive a strong signal into the amp. It will make it easier to see.

You need to confirm that the left channel signal is reaching the board. Check for signal on the biard just inside the RCA jacks.

Can you email me a photo at the best resolution possible?

The first place would be on the back of the RCA jacks. Feed signal only into the dead channel input. Place the switch in stereo mode.
