Need to replace the volume knob switch...

The device that controls the volume (6 prong switch) that attaches to the volume knob has worn out, one channel works the other doesn't unless firmly pressed IN... I visited my local radio shack, and as many switches (Potentiometers) they have, none match the one located on the receiver.

Please help, would like to fix this myself (am capable) just can NOT locate the part.

SOURCE: Technics SA-R330 recevier/amp

It seems the amplifier of your receiver is wearing out or the power.If the output of your amp usually short circuits you should conclude so.if not you should recheck the power supply whether it has a "slow short circuit" especially on the ceramics. In the meantime install a fan for cooling.

SOURCE: My Technics SA-R330 receiver audio problem

hello,
this problem can be solve by opening the receiver and check for dry soldering on the audio section of the printed circuit board, resolder if found any.
Also check for electrolyte capacitor if they are faulty by using an ohmmeter to read the faulty.
Good luck.....

I have a 1998 ford taurus and the mode selector control knob spins and all i get is defrost. any ideas how i can get the knob to work?


the knob may be broken or worn were it attaches to the switch.if you remove the knob and use a pair of pliers to turn the shaft to see if the modes change,if they do then you need to replace the knob and make sure the metal lock tang is with the new knob that securely holds the new one on the shaft.if not then the switch is bad.the rear of the knob should have a odd shape that fits the same shape of the shaft it attaches to.

The wiring is no longer attached to the volume tune knob or jack i need shcematic so i can repair


Here is a site:

In the schematic ignore all the extra switches and junk. The output jack and volume control is all you need to wire it back up. The view of the volume control is from the back.

Static when I turn on speakers or adjust volume


The problem is that the switch/volume control is dirty.
This is what I have done.

Dismantling Altec Lansing VS 2221 speakers to clean the switch/volume control


Tools: a medium Phillips screwdriver, a craft knife & a can of CO contact cleaner & extension.


1. Remove switch/volume control knob by pulling it off

2. Pull out the base for the stand if attached

3. Unscrew the 2 screws beside the wires

4. Remove the front gauze by prising it out from one of the bottom corners. Keep the gauze straight as it will need to be put back from the bottom to the top.

5. Remove the 2 screws at the top and the 4 long screws holding the speaker. The back will come apart from the front and sides. If it has been glued then use the craft knife to carefully cut the back away from the sides and/or prise it away with a little pressure on the sides.

6. Attach the extension to the can of contact cleaner.

7. Lift the circuit board out and squirt only the switch/volume control. Ensure you squirt the shaft and the internal parts of the switch/volume control. Turn the shaft a few times.

8. Allow the contact cleaner at least 1 hour to dry.

9. Test the speakers. If the noise is still there then repeat steps 6-9.

10. To assemble the speaker do the steps 1-5 in the opposite order.

I hope this is helpful

My subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is constantly generating lots of bass noise even on mute.


I assume you are using XP. Try these steps.
1. Open 'Sound and Audio devices' in Control Panel.
2. Select 'Advanced...' button near bottom. b2053f1.jpg

3. Select 5.1 system 972ed04.jpg

4. Start playing a sound.
5. Set the volume control of the subwoofer to the middle position.
6. Open volume control and adjust Master volume to a comfortable level (i.e. until there is no hum).

Also make sure you haven't muted any sound device except microphone. I think your problem is you have set it to the maximum level. So decrease it.
7. Mute the sound and check.
Good luck! Let us know the result.

My reciever volume cuts in and out and crackles when adjusting


You can CLEAN / LUBRICATEthe volume control know with a CONTACT/CONTROL cleaner, I use a product from Radio Shack, this works wonders on drum type electo mechanical devices which are basically volume control knobs, easy to do, just remove the round knob and spray into the openings with the small tube attached, and rotate in both directions, be sure to unplug the unit first, on a few occasions it is best to remove the front panel to acheive better coverage to the rheostat type volume body, anyway it always cures the crackling and distorting sound, I would give this a try before replacing the part.

Yamaha RX-V800 volume knob on receiver not working.


It sounds like the volume control pod has gone bad and needs replaced (The knob shaft connects to the pod main body and the inside of the volume pod is what controls the rate of volume,If the inside becomes worn ,broken or dirty the volume will become erratic) Replace volume pod ! ..You may try cleaning by taking off the volume knob and getting a can of pressure air and blowing the dust out!
Please rate response!!

HOW DO I FIX MY VOLUME KNOB ON MY HOME POWERED SUBWOOFER THAT HAS A SHORTAGE IN IT. I HAVE TO TURN THE VOLUME KNOB ALL THE WAY UP JUST TO GET BASS FROM IT.


Try spraying switch cleaner into the body of the volume control. Sometimes works but if the resist is worn then the only solution is to replace the component.

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.

Volume knob


Normal Aiwa compact shelf units use what is called a jog switch for the volume. Usually you can tell the difference if when you you turn the volume up or down. It goes a short distance and seems to spring back. In this case there are two momentary contact switches. One for up one for down. With a plastic lever on the back of the knob that bumps the approriate switch whether turning down or up. If the lever is broken it will bump up against one but not the other. If it is broken plastic you know how good gluing plastic goes it never seems to hold.
