Volume control broken

I asked TIVOLI AUDIO for a spare part which went broken. This is part of the last email sent. "The knobs arrived. Thanks a lot. But, unfortunately, when I opened the envelope I understood that my request for help was wrong: what is broken in my PAL radio set is not the knob, but the electric device controlled by the knob, a potentiometer which has also a bass control (that is what I learned from my technician, astonished by the quantit? of technology inserted in one red box). The knob is no more able to adjust the volume level, and the fault is not in itself but in the electric device, welded inside the radio. I am confused because after all your efforts I don't have the right spare part, and it is my fault. Is it possible to work on this and fix it definitely? I am obviously available to pay for the new spare part, for parcel of both and for your kindness. Let me know what to do. Sincerely yours. Matteo Bortolaso" can you help me in finding the part which went broken?

Tivoli PAL volume problems


I posted this tip elsewhere but the FixYa site is, shall we say, challenging.<br /> After years of use my Tivoli PAL started having volume problems. The audio began popping, volume changed erratically, static, booming, almost feedback sounds.<br /> In my case, and others as well, I've gleaned, the problem was the volume potentiometer. Apparently it oxidizes over time and the poor electrical contact is the reason for the erractic audio.<br /> I'm not an electrical repair kind of guy, so this isn't pretty.<br /> The volume and frequency controllers are secured to the knobs with metal collars. I pried the collars loose and got the horizontal board off, I sprayed Stabilant 22 into the volume pot. There are other electrical contact cleaners as well.<br /> Put it all back together. Let the flud dry. Good as new.<br /> Good luck.

Is the volume knob made of plastic or metal?


I checked my Yamaha receiver and the knob is plastic. A cheap plastic knob can be vacuum plated to resemble the metal knobs that were used many, many years ago.

Tivoli model Satellite will not turn on. Had intermittant power issues. Moved the radio and it will no longer power on


The power control problem is easy to fix.

It can as simple as a fuse (I'm sure you check it already) or a switch that is piggy back on the volume control.

Radio Shack has a similar one HERE

Disconnect the AC outlet and open the main Tivoli unit.

Look at the back side of the volume switch and you will see a power switch piggy back onto the volume control.

You can bypass it or get the correct value Potentiometer + SPST switch.

Use an ohm meter to meter the both end of the potentiometer and if it's 10,000 ohm or 10k then just go to Radio Shack and ask for
10K-Ohm Audio Control Potentiometer with SPST Switch Model: 271-215 | Catalog #: 271-215

It's a direct replacement.

If the ohm read is other then 10K then you will need to order it for an electronic supply house.


Tivoli makes great radio.....if you want to sell it I want the first dip.

Need replacement knob for Parrot Bluetooth car kit MKi9200


Went to Radio Shack after we lost the knob to our MKi9200 and bought an Insert Control Knob. The blue one is model #274-403. It also comes in red. They are sold in a two-pack for $1.99.

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103790

To install it, first you need to file off the plastic pointer on the side of the knob so that the knob is perfectly round. There is a small screw on the side of this knob so that you can tighten the knob to the post on the remote.

Advantages of this knob over the original Parrot knob are (1) the knob _never_ falls off, and (2) there is more tactile feedback when turning the knob. I like the asthetics of the blue. The only drawback is that it is more difficult to spin the knob quickly in long lists.

Get a lot of static when try and turn volume down low.....in fact, sometimes it is hard to get sound when you turn the volume down....it is either full blast or silent.....lots of static like noise when...


This is an easy fix with a can of volume knob cleaner i think its called. You should be able to get it at radio shack. You just spray it into the volume knob and let it dry. The instructions are on the can.

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.
