Question about NAD T743 Receiver

Intermittent Volume Control

Suddenly, my volume control knob has become intermittent.  When I rotate the knob, the volume may change or may not change or may move in the opposite direction from my intention.  The volume control on the remote control works well.  I bought the schematic and assume that I need to change the M201 Rotary Encoder NAD part # 35-6001219-00-08.  They list it as a "ENCODER ROTARY L=20mm VER W/O CLICK". I was hoping that the schematic would give me a commercial part number so I could purchase the encoder before pulling apart the receiver.  Any idea what commercial part I can purchase to replace this component?  Is my assumption that the rotary encoder needs replacing a reasonable one?  Thank you very much.

    The posted solution was for generic "rotary knobs" and most were high power potentiometers. I need a very specific rotary encoder part number that matches the NAD part # 35-6001219-00-08. When I look in my Mouser Electronics catalog, they have 3 pages of rotary encoders but I don't know which one is the correct one if any are.

    The second solution offered also did not provide me with any specific information. I still don't know what to order.

    I have not resoldered the connections because it is such a chore taking the system apart. The receiver is sitting on the bottom of the stack of components and must have 20 cables running into it. I was hoping to have a new rotary encoder in hand when I take it apart so that I only have to do it once and my system will only be down for one day instead of two weeks looking for the correct part at that time. If I cannot find the correct component then I will consider your solution since it does make sense. Thank you.

What you need is a rotary encoder L=20mm W/O ECB16

I did not find the part for sale.

Try first contacting NAD and see if they distribute the part.

If not have it remanufactured with same specs (click here).

The rotary encoder listed in the schematic is the only one you can use to replace the original. There are no generic types for your unit. It is the cause of your problem. When they go bad, they do the exact things you have described. I used to work at an authorized NAD service center and have never found any generic types of rotary encoders. You need that exact one so that it fits properly on the board. You can try cleaning it with a contact cleaner. It has been known to help in many occasions. Spray the contact cleaner into the encoder with the power off. Try to get it inside the encoder, they are sealed pretty good, but spraying it at all angles should get some cleaner inside of the encoder. Then just turn the encoder back and forth for a couple of minutes and see if it solves your problem.

The best people to call in this regard would be the manufacturers themselves. They may have the required spare pare or will specify what generic model can be used instead.

    Here is another suggestion. If you can actually remove the present rotary encoder and take it to an electronics shop, they should be able to find the correct replacement based on size and specifications. That way you do not need to keep it disassembled for a week or two..you could get it fixed the same day :)

Just for argument's sake, have you tried resoldering the connections on the current rotary encoder?

Volume control intermittant


You may be able to clean it with an electronics cleaner. Old rotary dials get dirty and lose contact, causing intermittent problems and crackling.

Mackie 450, signal light off, Sound only comes out when amp. turned up above 75%, when usually used at 40-50%. too loud at 75% and UP, does not Work at ALL below 75%. only 2 years old, with 25 uses... i...


Doesn't sound like a fuse. They don't fix themselves when you reach 75%.

Try shaking the volume knob while in the 30-50% range and/or try (with the power off) rotating the volume knob numerous times from 0% to 100%. If when you plug it back in it responds ANY differently, you might have a bad volume potentiometer. If when you shake the knob you hear static or intermittent sound, you have a bad volume pot.

The only other thing I can think of is that the wiper of the volume pot is not in contact with the windings inside the pot until you reach the 75% mark. When the volume comes on at 75%, does it start off kind of "static" then come in loud and clear? Also try this.... adjust the volume pot to 74% (or when the sound just begins to come on). At this point shake the knob. If you hear static, replace the volume pot.

Unplugging it when still on shouldn't cause any damage... in fact it probably hasn't considering it works at 75% plus.

Most of these things use an IC to control things like volume etc. Chances are that will have failed.

Yamaha rxv 870 - volume does not work from remote(s)


hi i have the same problem. yamaha rx-v870 with a remote control that works perfectly except for the volume up/down. i pressed the buttons for a minute and applied some lemon gunk remover liquid and this helped for a very short period. i am wondering if the problem is with the little motor inside the receiver that rotates the volume knob itself, as opposed to an infrared problem on the transmitter/receiver.

My Amplifier is in good working condition, except for the volume control has gone weird Using the remote, you can increase volume, but not decrease volume. On the unit, rotating the volume control...


Cleaning the contacts may help. The volume knob should pull off. Once its off use a non-flammable contact cleaning spray to clean the contacts behind the knob.

Electronics and automotive stores should have this.

The left side sound is intermittent


Sounds like dirt in the volume control or a high resistance speaker wire.
Try switching the right and left speaker wires and see if the problem changes.

My reciever volume cuts in and out and crackles when adjusting


You can CLEAN / LUBRICATEthe volume control know with a CONTACT/CONTROL cleaner, I use a product from Radio Shack, this works wonders on drum type electo mechanical devices which are basically volume control knobs, easy to do, just remove the round knob and spray into the openings with the small tube attached, and rotate in both directions, be sure to unplug the unit first, on a few occasions it is best to remove the front panel to acheive better coverage to the rheostat type volume body, anyway it always cures the crackling and distorting sound, I would give this a try before replacing the part.

Yamaha RX-V800 volume knob on receiver not working.


It sounds like the volume control pod has gone bad and needs replaced (The knob shaft connects to the pod main body and the inside of the volume pod is what controls the rate of volume,If the inside becomes worn ,broken or dirty the volume will become erratic) Replace volume pod ! ..You may try cleaning by taking off the volume knob and getting a can of pressure air and blowing the dust out!
Please rate response!!

Remote no longer works for volume control


Guys, I might have accidentally found the problem because the fix worked for me :). I have the RX-V995 and for the last 2+years or so, I had resorted to getting up and using the knob manually for volume control. System will show 'voluem up/down' in the display, but the knob didn't rotate. Same problem as yours.

I was getting ready to buy the service manual, find the knob motor which I thought was the main culprict and replace with a new one.

So I took out the top cover (just a few screws), the front face-plate (again just a few screws. The inner details were all visible. The volume knob circuit board was vertically placed. They were all covered in a good layer of dust. I got my Dyson vacuum cleaner and gently and carefully tried to **** up all the dust that had settled down. With soft front brushes, I agitated the dust I couldn't reach with dyson wand direclty, once dust were loose, dyson did a great job even with picking up those last dust pieces.

I couldn't succeed in taking apart the volume knob circuit board, as I was still awaiting for the service manual. I put all the covers back on and guess what? I used my remote and the knob was moving again. Responding very well, the knob made the full turn, when I was on the remote. It has been working perfectly for the last few days now.

I think I know what was happening. Teh top of the RX-V (and I am sure many Yamaha receivers) are very porous to allow for good heat dissipation. Over time, this allows a large amount of dust to collect on top of the parts. Most parts are electronic (not mechanical) and hence don't get affected by the dust. But the few mechanical parts might have adverse affect if dust settles down in between the rotating mechanisms.
My volume knob had stopped responding to remote command, very slowly. Initially it worked a little, missed a little, then it missed a lot and eventually it didn't rotate. That proves the theory to some extent that if the motor had completely failed, it would stop working from the get-go, not intermittently. Dust build-up provided intermittent contact between the parts and hence the response was intermittent.

The dyson vacuum did a great job in pulling out those fine dust from such parts and amazingly, things are looking very good at present. Honestly, I hadn't the slightest hope that vacuuming would fix the problem. I had vacuumed to make it easy for me to work on the parts :).

So, it doesn't hurt at all to just give it a try. Do open the covers so that you can reach closer to the real boards and parts.

Good luck and let us know!!!
cheers
