Volume Switch (Encoder) needs to be replaced professionally. Desolder the old one properly, and insert/solder the new part. Problem solved. Order part from here:

    This part costs about $20 plus shipping, but generally there is no need to buy a new one. Usually the problem is that the contacts inside the control become dirty and oxidized and all they need is cleaning.

    Here's is how to repair the part:

    Remove the control from the front PCB. You will find four tabs on the front of the control. Put the control in a vice and pry the tabs up with a small precision screwdriver or equivalent. Pull the control apart. You will have three pieces, 1) the metal collar, 2) the plastic shaft with the contact wheel, and 3) the back with the wiper arms. Soak the 3 parts in some type of organic solvent such as mineral spirits, brake cleaner or the like to dissolve and clean off all the grease that you will find. Next clean the contact wheel with a cotton cloth and electronic contact cleaner. Ditto for the back with the wiper arms.

    Put some silicone grease or dielectric grease on the contact wheel and the plastic shaft, and then reassemble, squeezing the tabs back in place with a needle nose pliers. Solder it back on the PCB and it should work good as new.

    I might add that theres no need to remove (desolder) the control knob from the board all that's required is to gently pry back the 4 metal tabs to release the control knob.

    Add a Commentull the knob off and clean up the blackened surface being careful not to remove to much of the silver surface, i think the main problem with my controller was the excess build up of lube inside the case gathering around the contact points. Once clean put the knob back together .

My volume button doesnt work an shows no display when i turn it up and down? Everything else works.


If you have a device like the Nexus 6P or Nexus 9 running stock Android, then these are the steps required to boot into Recovery mode:
  1. Hold down the Power key and select Power off. If the touchscreen is unresponsive, then you can simply keep holding down the Power key for several seconds until the device turns off.
  2. Press and hold the Power key and the Volume down key. You should see the Android mascot on his back, a bunch of information about your device, and Start at the top of the screen.
  3. To navigate through the menu options, you use the Volume up and Volume down keys. The Power key is used to make a selection. Press Volume down twice, and you should see Recovery mode in red up at the top right. Press the Power key to select it.
  4. The white Google logo will pop up followed by the Android mascot on his back again with the words No command underneath.
  5. Press and hold the Power key and the Volume up key for around three seconds, and then let go of the Volume up key, but keep pressing Power.
  6. You should see the Android system recovery options pop up at the top of the screen. Use the Volume keys to highlight the options and the Power key to select the one you want.

It seems you have a DEFAULT position and with that said, your device will always reset to the 21 volume setting. Contact the manufactures customer service personnel to go through the process of re-adjusting the controls.

Volume keeps going up and down


Follow the volume control wires back to the board. See if you can see if it runs into an IC. These days sound is often controlled by one of these devices. When they go the sound can go up and down.

When I adjust the volume, I'll turn the knob, for instance, counter clockwise to turn it down. It will go down a couple digits and then may go up again.


hi richard, seems as if your rotary volume control internal switch pins are wearing out. this is a typical problem on many units that use rotary/digital encoder volume controls. before replacing the control clean the face pins, or have the pc board checked for moisture damage, or have the solder joints checked on the volume control. cheers.

JVC 6010V shows zero on volume wont go up or down


This is a fault on the D/A digital / Analogue converter , The volume control being analogue is not processing the data in the cicuit and so there is no change in the level. This can be a fault in the IC - the D/A convertor IC which is not giving any response with the turn of the potentiometer. So check this within the amplifier ONLY if you are able to trace the circuit and replace the IC connected to the potentiometer.

Harman Kardon AVR 500: randomly accelerates volume levels.


The problem is with the actual eltromechanical element on the volume control, my avr 300 does this as well and I'll let you know the secret to avoiding it. There are small indents on the volume control as you turn it, if you leave it half way between indents, it will periodically start reading volume changes, if you're lucky it will go down, if you're unlucky by the time you've noticed it act up your speakers are blown. When you change the volume, make sure the control rests in an indent and the problem will never crop up again. A simple solution if you're the only one that uses the receiver.

Doesnt turn on



Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
