I have a new Yamaha RX-V365 receiver and an older technics turntable, regardless of input setup I cannot get any volume from the turntable, yet all other inputs like CD, Tuner are fine....amp issues in...

Some turn tables do not have a built in amp, especially the older ones, the sound goes from the needle to the output. If the amp your are using does not have a designated phono, turn table, input it may not have the turn table pre-amp built in. Some turn tables have to be grounded to the amp to work properly.

If the volume control can be turned continuously in either direction (no stopping), then the control is what is called an encoder and the behavior you are describing is an internal logic failure. If the control has an upper and lower limit (only turns so far), then it is a standard volume control and is physically broken and needs to be replaced. In either case, the unit should be under warranty. Return it to Best Buy for repair. Given that it just came out of the box, talk to a manager and request an exchange.

the volume control needs to be cleaned. this control is a step switch basicly. and the switch contacts are not making proper contact. cleaning this requires dis-assembly and desoldering so if you are inclined to do this work happy fixing if not it shouldn't cost much to fix.

Frustrated sound won't lower

There are several complaints in FIXYA and they are all about this same fault condition....the volume is too high when turned on...

Because of the high number of complaints about this same fault I would suggest that its a manufacturer fault.

So the manufacturer should be contacted about it to ask for your money back..

Cheers From YUBEUT..
