Volume handle doesn't work well

Hi, My volume handle is not working properly. I can turn it a lot and the volume would only change by a bit. It's like the volume is going up and down instead of one direction. Can you think of a solution?

Volume doesn't work

in most chrysler product like jeep, they have amplifiers under the back seat. those will not work with an aftermarket radio. those have to be bypassed in order for you to get any sound out of your speakers. i have delt with that myself with the numerous jeeps i have owned.

I also have a Sony STR-D365. Volume control works intermittently as well as right channel. Works if I "wind" the volume control up and down a bit and then goes out again. I reset it and no change. Any

There is a wiper on the back of the volume control that varies the resistance through the switch to control the volume. When you move it back and forth you are scraping the oxides off the switch and making it work again. I suggest you either get some contact cleaner and spray the control from inside (where the wiper is) or just change out the switch.

Hi there, I have a pair of M audio BX5 speakers, one of them works fine, on the other hand, the other one sounds kindda funny. Both of the twitter and the 5-inch cone on it work, the main thing that's...

Little goes wrong with a speaker unless it has either been overloaded or subject to damp, extreme dust or has sustained physical damage from some sort of accident.

A rough test is to move the speaker cone gently through most of it's travel using an even pressure simultaneously on various places around the cone, I use my fingers.
It should move smoothly without any resistance and most importantly it should be completely silent through the largest or smallest movements.

If it sounds scratchy, the speech coil is either off-centre or it has suffered damp or dust and dirt has ingressed into the air gap or the chassis has become distorted.
If it is silent and electrically sound it should produce normal volume.

There was a time when loudspeaker repair, overhaul or adjustment was routine but these days it isn't economic except for the highest quality and replacement is best.

After gaining access to the interior wiring of the speaker cabinet I suggest further testing it by wiring it direct and leaving out the crossover if it has one.

How do I turn down the volum ring on the phone

Check for buttons on the side of the phone. There should be an up and down button to change the volume either way. If that doesn't work look for setting and then sounds. From there, it should be possible to find a way to change the volume of the ringtone.

Toshiba model Cx36H60

Yes, I have been seeing a lot of those Toshiba IR receivers bad lately. Replacing it with a new one should take care of your remote problems. If you have never replaced small parts on PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
