When I increase the volume on my avr5 the number display shows with a negative sign and as the volume increases the numbers go down. When I decrease the volume the numbers increase into the plus sign range. This seems wrong to me. I have no preamp or dts decoder attached to the receiver and have tried resetting it using the cd/tape mon buttons but it has no effect. The receiver works fine - this is strictly a problem that irks me when I adjust the volume.
This is because the volume knob on ANY stereo is actually an attenuator. Meaning, the stereo would play at full blast (way too loud!) if left to it's own limits of power, so your volume knob is actually "dialing down" the power, or when fully turned up, letting it all flow.
The reason that the numbers change like that is it's showing you how much attenuation is happening in decibels, or dB, so for insTance, when it's at "-30" that's a pretty decent volume, but at "-5" it's much louder and your neighbors might complain. I think you'll notice that it can be cranked to something like "+5" which on my AVR 100 will blow the speakers.
In other words, this is normal, so relax and enjoy the music!

On the side of your cellular phone is the volume switch having (+) sign on top and (-) at the bottom. When you receive a call press the (+) sign and the volume will be increased.
You can go to settings and then to calls and increase the volume there and save.
On the lef tside of the phone, on top end you will find key with (+) sign on the top and (-) sign at the bottom. When a call comes press (+) to increase the volume,
Also you can go to Menu. Click settings. Choose your profile. Then go to ringer volume, increase the number and save. Similar procedure for the call volume too
hello,visit your phone ringer settings by following the steps below, MENU>SETTINGS>RINGING TONE>INCREASE THE VOLUME TO YOUR DESIRED POINT.THAT HAS AUTOMATICALLY INCREASED THE VOLUME OF YOUR PHONE. you can as well dial a number and increase the volume by pressing the up and down bottons beside the phone,if not there you can also press the upper side of the centre control botton.that should sho you the volume display then you set it to the level you want.
the roller key on the side will adust the volume, i am sure you have tried this with no avail, however there is a little bit more to know. If you press and hold it until it shows the volume 'chart' then you can roll up and down this will adjust volume as well but on the other 'realm' sometime these phones are programmed backwards. The scenario i gave you should increase the volume of purhaps music or videos, and just using the roller it should increase call volume.
Now if neither of these methods work then i would suggest taking compressed air to the speaker, if metal filings gathered in there it will muffle the sound considerably
I know what you mean. Used to be a source of irritation in this otherwise super-quiet car. It was like "hey... the music plays far too loud now please drive a little slower dad". Really irritating on the Autobahn, constantly fiddling on that volume knob.
Interestingly, the instruction manual for the business CD main unit gave no clues at all! Then I found the solution at the bimmerfest BMW forum:
" 1.Power down the unit (using the knob) and power back up in the radio mode
(either AM or FM).
2. Hold down the "m" button (right of the display) until your display shows
a serial # xxxxxxxxxxx.
3. Using the "+" or "-" buttons that surround the center "musical note
symbol" button to the left of your display, scroll until "GAL 3" comes up,
which is factory setting. Using the number buttons 1 thru 6 below your
display, press the number "1". Your display will now read "GAL 1 ".
4. Power down the unit again (using the knob) and when you power back up,
your new setting will be effective!
5. To confirm that the new setting is active, repeat steps 2 & 3 to check
your "GAL" setting.
6. Enjoy your HK unit's volume the way YOU want to hear it! "
I assume there are slightly different versions of this in different models but it goes something like this, the keyword you are looking for in the menu system is "GAL" which is a German acronym for speed-sensitive volume control (Geschwindigkeitsabhängige Lautstärkenregelung für Radio).
When the volume increased did the display show it doing so as if someone was turning the knob? I mean did the volume go from like level 15 to 30 or did the unit's level stay constant while the audio volume increased? Were you alone or sharing the room with a jokester who has a universal remote? Does this problem occur when the batteries are removed from your remote? Are you sure the 'volume up' button on the unit itself is disengaging properly after being pressed?
I had this problem on my Aquos (LC-46D62U). It was NOT a hardware problem. I recommend turning off the television. Next unplug the television for 5 to 10 seconds. This resets something for the television. Plug it back in and turn on the television. You should now be able to get your volume and other on-screen displays.
