Re: volume control possessed?

Sticking button most likely. I would take the faceplate apart. I suspect it has probhably has coffe, pop spilled on it. Chean the contacts and switches using rubbing alchol then reassemble. yOU MIGHT END UP HAVING TO REPLACE THE FACEPLATE.

Volume button sticks and raises to max level and cannot be turned down.

It sounds from your description there is a fault in the audio section electronics rather than with the button.

The stereo's volume goes up and down on its and I cannot control it. Loose wire connection?

this is dirt and the tactile switches and soft touch pads

if its a face off then replace the face
or get it cleaned or repaired {replace the switches if you can}
touch pad types can be repaired quite easy just with a careful clean

you could try to clean with a 'gold cloth' or a glass fiber pen'R40&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR7.TRC2.A0.H0.Xglass+fibre+pen.TRS0&_nkw=glass+fibre+pen&_sacat=0

My Sanyo FXCD 1100 car radio isn't functioning correctly. When I try to turn my music down, the volume goes up. It also gets stuck in the same volume range then gradually goes up when I'm turning the...

Could be a worn electronic ribbon between the unit and face. They wear from constantly moving and the wires inside break and short out. This happens a lot of movable face stereos. Older head units do not really have a reset aside from unplugging them and plugging them back in. You might be able to find a small hole behind the face containing a reset if there is one, just insert a small pin into the hole to press the reset if so.

My kenwood KDC-MP342U stopped reading my ipod i just got it within the past two weeks and it was working fine and the all of a sudden when i pluggedd my ipod in all it says is reading. i have tried to use...

I had the same problem with my first gen ipod touch. The reset button is on the front panel, between the Fast Forward button and the "1" button. Push it with a pen or something with the unit turned on. It will go dark then come back. You'll have to set up your preamp and other stuff again. I also now push the eject button before removing my ipod or USB thumb drives. The display will flash "remove". I guess this does some handshaking that cleans things up before removal.

Sub woofer volume adjustment

The gain dial is not a volume control. The gain dial is used to compensate the output level of your car radio head unit. all car stereo units output are not alike. If you set this gain level too high, it will cause major distortion (clipping) to the audio output of you speakers when cranked up. This excessive distortion WILL eventually, or even quickly damage or blow your speakers.

I personally blown speakers this way no not properly setting this. (lesson learned, I guess :| )

You've either got a short from faulty manufacturing or possibly from moisture entering your unit. Or the wiring may be faulty, if you know how take the unit out and examine the wiring; make sure the wires are all taped with electrical tape and that no bare wires exposed or touching. If everything looks ok then you might as well just exercise the warranty. They come with a 1 year warranty from Dual.

Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...

I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.
