There is a wiper on the back of the volume control that varies the resistance through the switch to control the volume. When you move it back and forth you are scraping the oxides off the switch and making it work again. I suggest you either get some contact cleaner and spray the control from inside (where the wiper is) or just change out the switch.

HI I HAVE FIXED THE SAME FAULT ON MY SONY SCANNER BUT NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!. YOU WILL HAVE TO UNSOLDER AND EXTRACT THE CONTROL AS THE TRACK SPRING LEAVES HAVE BECOME WEAK AND ARE NOT TOUCHING THE TRACK PROPERLY.CAREFULLY TAKE APART THE CONTOL CLEAN ANY RESIDUE ON THE TRACK AND CONTACT SPRINGS THEN RE ASSEMBLE AFTER SLIGHTLY BENDING THE CONTACT LEGS TO IMPROVE PRESSURE ON THE TRACK. BEST OF LUCK I HAVE GOT A SPARE WHICH MIGHT FIT YOUR MODEL. CHRIS

SOURCE: I've got a Sony STR-DH800

There is a disparity in the impedance of the speakers and the outputs of the receiver - the speakers are too weak and they act as a short , damaging the amplifiers , hence the Protect status being engaged.
Trying to run the receiver with a wrong set of speakers has probably damaged it. Get a correct one and try the setup only with it, if you're lucky it was just the safety system cutting the output.

Factory reset sony mhc-6700


I don't think that will cure the problem. Volume controls these days are done by an IC. If it fails it can cause the volume to go up on one channel and not on the other. If you trace the wiring back from the volume control you will eventually run into the chip. I would have thought that the two channels will go into one chip and not two separate chips for each channel, but it depends on how complex the system is. If you are lucky the PCB will even tell you that the area is tone and volume control.

I have a Sony reciever (STR-D365) and Time Warner remote (8780L). I found the codes for that combo but none of them are controlling the volume function. Power on/off and mute are working but nothing...


083,091,077. Check these codes. If you wish to get more details, check this link. http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Setup code list and setup proceedings to many popular brand remote controls are given.

Left channel cuts out, if i tap the reciever it will come back on.


sounds like the controls are dirty...or possibly the solder connection on the volume control has become intermittant...you can goto your local electronics store(or Radio Shack) and get some contact cleaner..open the unit up and clean the volume control as per the instructions on the can...make sure when you spray the cleaner into the control you turn it back and forth several times...then you want to spray more in to flush out whatever debris may have been in there...be careful not to get any on the face plate as it may damage the finish...also , make sure that the chemical spray that you use is safe for plastics...If this doesn't fix it , then the volume control assembly may need to be resoldered.

The receiver works ok until the vol is reduced and the right front channel drops out. Increasing the vol usually picks up the dead speaker but it drops out again when the vol is reduced. I've tried...


Make sure the audio level on the left and right channels are balanced. Check the menu for audio levels to adjust and make sure they are not maladjusted. If all levels are adjusted properly then the volume control or volume control circuity may be at fault.

Speakers stop working


This is either a loose connection internally or a dirty control such as the volume control. Both of these will require a trip to the shop

HOW CAN I HOOK UP CAVILIER 200A POWER AMP TO A sony str av 770x f


You can pull the Left and Right stereo program from either MD/Tape or Video 2 Audio OUTputs. Run a pair of RCA cables to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ's Line OUT to the Cavalier's Line IN.

If the Tape output you're borrowing the program from is already connected to something, use RCA-cable splitters.

Remember to NEVER activate the monitor for that Tape function during playback of any digital audio source - it disables the digital input; or if the 901's are being used - it will remove the signal to the Cavalier.

Now if you wanted to use the 901's in your movie listening this will work with two limitations

Your receiver doesn't have preamp outputs for Front Left and Right out so you'd be extracting only the mixed-down 2-channel version of whatever the Sony is processing.

You'll have to manually control the Cavalier's volume because the pre-out you're using is BEFORE the Sony's volume control.

It might still be an improvement over what you have now.

Quiet front R channel on Sony


Does problem persist when you connect other speaker to front right channel? (i.e. when you connect your FL speaker to FR and vice versa)?

Volume Control not working via remote. Works manually. Is there a motor or belt involved that may require replacement?


Please check volume button works on remote? Take any digital camera / mobile phone camera and see remote front through camera and press volume buttons, if you see IR LED blinking then remote is fine and amp has problem with volume. Let me know exact model of Sony amp to see its schematics.
