You might have a "dirty" volume control - with the power off, try twisting the volume control full to the left, full to the right, repeat several times - if this improves the situation then a quick shot of contact cleaner spray into the volume control might fix it for good.

This advice should work for potentiometer-type controls which consist of a metal wiper moving over an arc of carbon-coated material - dirt builds up under the wiper, preventing good contact.

Newer controls using an optical encoder will not be fixed by this method. If your amp volume normally adjusts in "steps" that you can hear, as opposed to continuously and smoothly as you rotate(d) the knob, then you have an encoder control.

I have an audiosource amp 350 watts the volume is not as loud as is should be????


How loud do you expect it to be?

More watts doesn't mean more loud but it gives you more headroom for cleaner reproduction of very loud passages. Distortion will kill a speaker faster than clean signals will.

I have sony LBT-XG900Av. The volume knob wont adjust volume. Even when using remote you cant adjust volume. Its just on loud


I think the problem will be somekind of audio IC that controls volume and other aspects of the sound has failed. Not a job for an amateur to fix as it will almost certainly involve the desoldering and refitting of multi-pin microchip. I would take it to your nearest Sony Service center.

Very little volume, not very loud at highest


On the TV-use your finger to adjust the volume level, about midway, then use the remote to shut off the tv, then turn on tv with remote. Volume level should be better! If still not loud enough...using your finger on the tv...turn up volume & repeat remote steps.

HOW DO I TURN DOWN LOUD SPEAKER VOLUME?


There are 2 possibilities. One is the speaker volume, adjusted with the up (top and bottom) and down of the gray circular key while you're on speakerphone, and the other is the background music is turned on by pressing the "1" key while the phone is idle. One or the other ought to fix it.

If you use a digital cable box, it could be that the volume on that isn't turned up all the way. I didn't even realize the box had volume controls until 2 years after I got it...makes a HUGE difference now

Popping & hardly any volume


i had the first problem and you can probably fix it by turning the volume knob all the way up and down about 20 times. it worked for me. supposedly the potentiometers in the z-5300 get dirty or worn out, somehow this might fix it. for the second problem maybe try plugging it into the laptop and unplugging it again seeing if it goes back to normal?maybe its a problem with the amp?

Car stereo receiver


Maybe the owners manual would help. It says you can adjust the sensitivity of the AUX input through a menu. It sounds like the AUX sensitivity is just set to max. Look for the 'to change other settings' chapter, instructions are in there.
If you don't have the manual, find it on the official website.

Composite audio input plays quietly


4 longshots to try, in case you haven't allready: 1. try connecting using a different cable 2. what are you trying to connect to the VCR out? note that CD players(other personal players as well) have a headphone jack and a line out jack, and you dont allways get the same vulume output from them. 3. in case you do have it connected to the line out, try connecting a different device, because some players have lower volume levels than others, which bring me to 4. some players have a setting that lowers volume level in order to protect your hearing when using headphones. you might have to disable that. I never ran across any receiver that let you adjust volume levels of individual outs, but it might be possible that a part needs replacement, or to get amped up, have more power directed to it. consult a service man. offcourse if you're still under warranty use it, go complain... Good luck!
