SOURCE: Volume control broken

You can purchase clear 2-part epoxy products at most home improvement stores. You will also need masking tape (or similar) a popsicle stick (or similar) a small piece of cardboard and a toothpick.
Mix the epoxy with the popsicle stick and apply a small amount to the exposed surface of the volume control's stem. Holding the knob in place, run a strip of tape from the top of the unit, across the knob and to the bottom.
These epoxies are very strong and fast setting. It's probably best to leave the tape for at least 8 hours but you should refer to the instructions for the epoxy you buy.

Good Luck,

SOURCE: no sound, volume knob is blinking

On the bottom of the remote on right side, right next to the master volume - key . it is actually called muting instead of just mute. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: remote does not move volume knob

Unplug the receiver for a minute then plug it back in. This resets the controls. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I will help you troubleshoot further. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V1000 volume control erratic, remote


The volume knob issue alone sounds like it's hardware-related and therefore not easily fixed. Also, since the remote appears to be working (the LED's are lighting up), but the unit is not controlled anymore, the IR sensor is probably faulty as well. I would seriously consider sending this AV receiver in for repair. If it's still within warranty, you shouldn't need to pay anything for the repair.

Manual for your receiver:

It's not much but I hope this helps.

The volume knob on my JVC receiver is loose and the volume cant be turned up or down by the knob. Can i use a remote to turn it up or donw or do i have to look for a new receiver?

Assuming your receiver came with the ability to be remotely controlled, then yes, a universal remote such as the Logitech Harmony etc, will be able to control the volume.

Pioneer vsx1021k volume drops by itself at 3db increments until there is no volume. M volume is displayed when this happens as if someone was manually turning the volume knob.

Dirty rotary encoder (volume control ). If you are confident with opening the unit yourself, a spray of contact cleaner into the encoder might help. Ideally u should replace it.
The volume minus button on your remote is dirty/shorted. Try removing remote control batteries and see if the issue disappears.

Broken volume knob

I located the remote control for the unit and it works fine. As the unit is not the primary amplifier for the home stereo system, I use the remote to control the volume. Thank you for your quick responce, and I will keep you in mind for any future needs.

Volume control on unit

Kent, Unfortunately, it sounds as if the encoder is broken. The encoder is a digital input which takes the place of a traditional volume control, and is what holds the volume knob in place and spins. Since it works fine with the remote, that means everything else is ok, but you will have to replace, or have a tech replace, the encoder itself.

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!!!

Volume Control

The volume control shaft lube, over time and heat exposure, will flow down and corrupt the contact between the volume twister and the spring loaded sensor. Pull the cover off the tuner, locate the volume control and take out the two screws holding it in. It looks like a small circuit board with the volume twister attached.
The base of the twister is hooked to the circuit panel by four metal tabs. Pry these guys gently away and pull the twister free. There will be a metal disk at the end of the volume control shaft, and will have a goopy lube residue on the face of it that can be cleaned with electric contact cleaner or some other kind of solvent. Wipe it clean,(do not immerse) reattach, and test. Worked perfect for me.
Good Luck,

It has lost partially the mechanical connection between the volume control knob and the volume control pot.

The knob could be "stripped". A drop of a slightly resilient glue should do the trick. Do not use rigid adhesives, as this will prevent future service to this area of your receiver....accordianman
