Question about Pioneer VSX-D608 Receiver
I have had a Pioneer VSX-D608 for 8 years and have had very little problems. I usually keep the volume level around -35 to -40, but all of a sudden I have an issue. The other day, the volume wasn't working correctly and it no matter how much I turned the volume nob, it wouldn't change from in the -80's. I partially answered my own question...the remote is working fine. How do you fix a volume knob.
I just picked up one at the dump. You have to take apart the front end by unscrewing screws and pulling out ribbon edge connections. It is easier than some components. Then pry off two of the small clamp downs on the front of the volume potentiometer; pry apart about 1/32 of an inch and spray control cleaner for a second and clamp down. repeat on other side.
worked for me.

I've seen similar problems with volume knobs on older stereos in cars, and it should be the same with home stereos. What happens is the knob itself starts to come unsoldered or lose contact somehow from the main board in one or more of the multiple connectors. I recommend you open it up to have a look at the knob's connection to the main board, and see if any of the connectors have lost contact. If they have, the best you can do is to resolder them. Either that, or get used to blasting music :)
