Question about Yamaha RX-V800 Receiver
When I try to turn the volume knob up or down, it bounces all over the place. Any help?
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!!

If it uses a shaft-encoder type control, it's usually an easy fix. I've uploaded a video that explains how to repair this easily and with nothing more than about an hour of time and some cleaning products :-)

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V800 volume control
i would say that the component that controls the sound level (called a potentionmeter) or (varible resistor) is either broken or faulty....you will need to remove the cover and inspect the area around the volume control just to make sure it is not broken or that any wiring has just become dry jointed....if all is good then what i would suggest to do is to find out the value of the pot...normally there around 10-50K then youll need to get a replacement...if this still dosen't fix it or your confident enough to look or fix it yourself i would take it to a local electronics repair shop....remeber to disconnect unit from power before removing cover hope this helps,ben

What if you DON'T use the remote? Does it shut down when just using it?
If SO, you have a bigger problem.
If NOT, it sounds like the remote is hosed - sending a code to shut off.
Do you have another remote of any brand that you could set to do something simple, like change volume? Don't train it from the original, though, or it would do the same thing.
