The volume button works but barely! You have to hit it a bunch of times before it will begin adjust the volume. All the other buttons work fine. It's as if we have over used this one button and it is wearing out.
Coyotedave is right. I had the same problem, followed his instructions (there are no screws, just gently pry it open), and I saw an oily residue on the up and down volume sections of the circuit board. I used a Q-tip with alcohol on both the circuit board and underside of the rubber pad, put it back together, and it worked much, much better. Thanks, Coyotedave.
Popped open the cave (used a dull table knife to avoid damage) and once one spot was open, worked my way around. Didn'r eally see any dirt, but used 90% Rubbing Alcohol and Q-Tips on the contacts on the rubbery button panel, Rubbed down the contacts on the board with a saturated paper towel. Reassembled and ... Ta-Da! Works great! Thanks everyone for the tips!!
Thanks for tip ! When opening remote with knife, do it gently, I pressed a little bit to strong near battery compartment, and I broke the thin part. Fortunately whole remote keeps together :-)
I had oily residue near volume controls. Any Idea where this residue comes from ? It can't be dirt from outside. It seems like rubber loosing some components when pressed often ( volume control is the most often used)
Cleaning oil with alcohol completely restored volum controls. Previously volume down didn't work at all.

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.
If the remote control is found OK; check it with set it up to an other set-up code said for your TV. If you wish to get more details; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Common set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the "device's brand name list" in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Surf the sites by type in the brand name to your set, in its search box. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
replace batteries for full charge and same type like alkaline 2) retight the spring contacts with long pliers for better contacts. 3) clean the contacts batt, with c. cleaner 4) open the rem. control and clean the keypads for dirty, corrosion, oxide, bad contacts. 5) try again. 6) if the problem persist go to the repair shop for fix it. the Syscom can be faulty or another associates circuit. see the b.diagram God bless you
HI it is entirely possible that the function you are using on your tv has the same command that your Onkyo uses for selection of GAME-mode. You should be able to prove this by using the Game-mode button on your Onkyo remote and it should affect your TV.
If Not then try shielding the remote receiver on your stereo with something thick ( a piece of paper is transparemt to IR - use a book or pillow) and see if the problem clears.
If this test proves correct, then the only solution is to see if you can change the remote command ID on the stereo and remote (if it supports it). The philips will most probably not have this feature. otherwise the only solution is to upgrade 1 device for a different brand.
The issue turned out to be that the iPod was not seated in the dock correctly. The adjustable back was adjusted too far forward so it was docked improperly. Correcting this corrected the remote issues. Everything works great now.
If the volume buttons work when using the Radio, then the buttons on the Remote are fine.
Now if the volume on your TV is set to MAX and you can barely hear it.
The issue lies with your TV.. ()
Now if I understand correctly or if I am to assume you are using a Reviever.
If the reciever is used for all volumes... If this is the case.
I also assume the volume on the TV Speakers is set to off
Therefore when you use the Radio/DVD the volume control is using the Reciever volume.
and when you switch to TV it uses the TV volume thus the TV volume is not gonna work as well.
1 The TV volume even at max is not giving you enough power to get the low receiver volume
2 the Receiver volume is at max and barely audible.. if this is the case just manualy adjust your TV volume to get it to a decent sound level.
Hard to explain but I know the 2 issues can be fixed.
