Question about Technics Audio & Video Receivers
I have a 1977 Technic SA-5270 reciever. The volume sounds crackly and distorted when adjusting. If you tap the knob it sometimes clears up. I would like to replace the volume controler but can't find parts for something this vintage(1977)
You can CLEAN / LUBRICATEthe volume control know with a CONTACT/CONTROL cleaner, I use a product from Radio Shack, this works wonders on drum type electo mechanical devices which are basically volume control knobs, easy to do, just remove the round knob and spray into the openings with the small tube attached, and rotate in both directions, be sure to unplug the unit first, on a few occasions it is best to remove the front panel to acheive better coverage to the rheostat type volume body, anyway it always cures the crackling and distorting sound, I would give this a try before replacing the part.
