Yes, if it's the same as the UV8, get it to the desired volume and hold in the volume dial for 5 or 6 seconds. I had the same problem, only mine went to zero. Pushing in the button "sets" the starting volume.

If you record from an outside source, turn up the source (e.g.digital receiver) volume. If recording sound from a VCR's own tuner, tape path, especially the drum(once you open the cover)and linear voice recorder post (to the right after the drum)must be cleaned. Get instructions from the web how to do the cleaning, otherwise you may damage the machine. Switch to hi-fi track if you have one and adjust the tracking.
Remove cover of player, you will see glass eye which is laser eye. Take rubbing alcohol and cotton swab and clean the eye with the alcohol soaked cotton swab. If this player is self- fixable, than this will do the trick. If cleaning the laser eye didn't help, than they player will have to be repaired or replaced.

My brother got this one as part of a deal and I hunted around and found that most if not all HT variants have the same region free hack:
1. Remove disc from tray. 2. Switch off player and unplug from mains. 3. Wait 30 seconds, then reconnect mains. 4. Turn on player with remote. Wait for player to finish loading and display 'no disc'. 5. Press enter on remote. (There will be no on-screen response.) 6. Press 8, 4, 2, 6, 9 on the remote. (There will be no on-screen response.) 7. Press enter on the remote. Player will automatically shut off. 8. Turn player on. 9. turn off. 10. Turn player off then on again. 11. Player is now region-free.
Did this on a Samsung HT-Z310 and other than I think maybe the tray not opening when it said it worked fine and the player is now region free.
Had the same problem and returned it for a replacement. The new one doesn't go off at full volume, but instead switching bedside lights on/off cause it to turn on/off. Guess it's very susceptible to electrical interference. Going back again.
There are two ways of bypassing the brake sensor in a Phase Linear UV8:
1. ground the pink wire using a toggle switch;
2. Use the unit's built-in bypass software.
a. Select "Tuner" mode (AM/FM); b. Press the "Setup" button; c. With the use of the remote, press 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and then press and hold 0 for a couple of seconds or until the menu changes. d. d. Display should show hidden menu. Among the options would be to turn ON the "Brake override"; e. Press th "X" on the bottom leftmost corner.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
