You can try cleaning it first.Unplug and disconnect the unit. get some electronics contact cleaner with lube. Spray the interior of the potentiometer liberally while rotating the knob back and forth. don't be afraid of using too much cleaner.
Good Luck

How do i connect my amp to my vizio tv there are right and left outputs on tv but only one input on back off amp


Typically you need an preamplifier between your tv and amplifier. you run one optical cable (or coax ) cable from you tv audio output to the preamplifier then you run audio rca cables from preamp outputs to amp inputs (2 for stereo 5 or 7 for surround). the preamp decodes audio and controls volume and surround modes.
If you have a cable box and need just simple setup for watching tv just run rca cables from your cable box audio outs to your amp inputs. you then program your cable remote control to control volume.

My sansui tu 217 makes a popping noise and looses all volume when i turn it above 1


Volume controls these days pass signals to an IC that controls most functions such as volume and tone. Following the wiring from the volume control should take you to the this IC which will need to be replaced.

Cambridge audio azur 840a volume control problems


The volume control is a resistor ladder controlled by software. If powering off the unit for an hour doesn't fix it, I would imagine that one of the "steps" has a problem. Contact your dealer or visit http://support.cambridgeaudio.com/.

Very loud noise coming from amp as soon as amp is turned on..noise will not fluctuate with the volume..noise stays constant?


This will be the large Electrolytic Capacitors in the Power Supply. You can't miss them. They will over 4700uf or around that in value. Replace them all, even if only one has gone. I think what your hearing is the 50/HZ hum from the mains getting in.

When you switch the amplifier on there is a strong background noise that is not linear with the volume, as it decrease a bit after the first quarter of the volume knob run. I have tried it in diferent...


If the noise does not go away when you turn the volume control down the problem is in the output stage. If the noise is in one channel, then you should only look at that channel. Use the other good channel as a guide to what is working. If in both channels then it can only be something common to both channels. The bad news is that anything can cause noise.

I use an azur intregrated amp 540A and a Azur Pre amp 640P. When first power up, The amp makes a popping sound and the volume turns down. Some times it can pop 2 or 3 times within a few minutes. Then it...


I've never repaired one of these but I have an amp at home that makes a intermittent static "popping" noise that i'm going to put down to a dirty volume pot (control) that needs cleaning. I will also have to change some of the electro capacitors that have dried up inside which cause "shot noise". With the right lubricant (electrical contact cleaner, nothing else) you could take to lid off and spray a small 1 second blast into the hole of the pot and any other balance or tone control yourself but I would take it to the electronics repairer to get the capacitors checked over.
My theory only
Good Luck!

Kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-206 doesn't work


I was able to use an universal remote control that I have, a Radio Shack Kameleon 6 in one remote control which I was able to program to run the audio portion of the Kenwood KC 206 control preamp. By adjust the remote sensor volume to max, I was able to get maximum volume out of the unit and drive the power section very nicely. Now I have to get up and manually turn the manual volume control for addition volume adjustment.

Hopefully Ken can find a remote that he can control the Kenwood control preamp the same way I did. Good luck here.
