Although I can't check this fix works for 1 month, a really simple explanation and fix was offered.

The rotary knob/control has 2 contacts, which when the knob is rotated c/w or anti-c/w it generates a pulse. The diagnosis is that as the remote still works, the PCB & volume circuit is fine. What is likely is that the 2 contacts/switches have become dirty or clogged.

SUGGESTED FIX: Take head unit faceplate apart to access PCB & rear of rotary control (4 screws). Spray WD40 into rear of volume control and rotate liberally to clean contacts. Dry of with lint free cloth, tissue or air dry.

I am confident this will work and the volume control will function again.

I cannot turn the volume down. i even removed the plastic button and turn the post but the volume will not go0 down


If it doesn't get louder when you increase the volume, then possibility that is not the volume control or the potentiometer isn't in volume adjustment mode. Try pushing the knob before you rotate it, it might switch to a different function. Other cause could be that the switch is smoked. This is possible specially with analog type rotary and slider potentiometers. With digital static switches it also happens when it's just so used up and doesn't conduct electricity at the contact surface inside the wafer casing.
