Question about Audio Players & Recorders
As the pots are part of the necessary feedback loop for the final stage, I would recommend that you jumper the wiper of each respective pot to its "full on" position. Problem solved!...accordianman

If the receiver is a new one (a couple of years) I suggest you don't replace the balance potentiometer. It's a potentiometer with rare use so the inner carbon film can't be destroyed. I suggest you to open the case and use a contact cleaner spray (clear, without oil) and spray direct at the potentiometer. Turn it all the way from left to right many times. When it will come dry you will see the diference. As far as the suggestion for clear (without oil) contact cleaner spray, I insist on that because the lubricating oil will cause a trap for the dust and will ask for cleaning again and again. Also for potentiometers with rare use there is no need for lubricating oil.
I think that this solution is much easier than chanching a potentiometer, since the device is not too old.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
Thanks and regards

There are many configurations for volume potentiometers - If you remove yours, you can get the serial number off it and go to a local electronics supply store ( or website , like www.radioshack.com) you should be able to purchase the right one. If the shaft is wobbling, you may be able to tighten up the casing by bending the tabs on the back of the casing - make sure you're squeezing the casing closed with the shaft in the proper location. If you have talent ( this part is really challenging for me ) you can straighten out those tabs, disassemble the switch, clean the contacts with a pencil eraser, regrease with dielectric grease and re - assemble. Personally I would just buy another - much easier!!
Good luck either way!!
