Why could my volume knob be stuck on max volume and not adjusting?


There is probably grease or dirt on the contacts inside the unit. Here's a video that shows you how to fix it:

Volume does not adjust, when pressing the volume button up or down, jabra bluetooth tells me the status of the battery, but won't adjust the volume up or down


I just got mine and had the same problem. After messing with it for a bit I got it to work. The trick is you must have audio of some kind playing through the jabra when using the volume button. I started some music playing and then tried the button and it worked. But if it is idle you just get the battery status.

1) retight the springs contacts batteries with pliers for a better contacts
2) open the r.control and clean the keypads very well from dirty, oxide, and bad contacts, with contacts cleaner.
3) otherwise you must go to the repair shop TV.

When I adjust the volume, I'll turn the knob, for instance, counter clockwise to turn it down. It will go down a couple digits and then may go up again.


hi richard, seems as if your rotary volume control internal switch pins are wearing out. this is a typical problem on many units that use rotary/digital encoder volume controls. before replacing the control clean the face pins, or have the pc board checked for moisture damage, or have the solder joints checked on the volume control. cheers.

I recently had my fender acoustasonic telecaster checked out because the volume kept shorting out. It seems the volume pot was dirty or had a short. Took it to my local fender guitar and fender electronic...


If the problem is actually the volume knob, then the guitar shop did not fix it and you should bring it back. There is a test you can do to see if the problem is your volume knob. With the guitar unplugged, you can turn the knob up to the max and down to the min a lot of time (like 50-100 times or more) plug it back in and see if the problem is a little bit better, if it is I would bring it back to the repair shop and demand they fix it properly.

The problem could be the cable you are using. Sometimes it can seem like it's a volume knob problem when really it's a cable issue. Jiggle the cable and connector while the guitar is plugged in to see if the sound cuts out at all or you get crackling.

Broken volume knob


I located the remote control for the unit and it works fine. As the unit is not the primary amplifier for the home stereo system, I use the remote to control the volume. Thank you for your quick responce, and I will keep you in mind for any future needs.

It has lost partially the mechanical connection between the volume control knob and the volume control pot.


The knob could be "stripped". A drop of a slightly resilient glue should do the trick. Do not use rigid adhesives, as this will prevent future service to this area of your receiver....accordianman

Volume knob


Normal Aiwa compact shelf units use what is called a jog switch for the volume. Usually you can tell the difference if when you you turn the volume up or down. It goes a short distance and seems to spring back. In this case there are two momentary contact switches. One for up one for down. With a plastic lever on the back of the knob that bumps the approriate switch whether turning down or up. If the lever is broken it will bump up against one but not the other. If it is broken plastic you know how good gluing plastic goes it never seems to hold.
