If the receiver is a new one (a couple of years) I suggest you don't replace the balance potentiometer. It's a potentiometer with rare use so the inner carbon film can't be destroyed. I suggest you to open the case and use a contact cleaner spray (clear, without oil) and spray direct at the potentiometer. Turn it all the way from left to right many times. When it will come dry you will see the diference. As far as the suggestion for clear (without oil) contact cleaner spray, I insist on that because the lubricating oil will cause a trap for the dust and will ask for cleaning again and again. Also for potentiometers with rare use there is no need for lubricating oil.
I think that this solution is much easier than chanching a potentiometer, since the device is not too old.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
Thanks and regards

SOURCE: I have an Optimus STA-3500
It won't have "iPod" functionality but it can be played through the receiver.
Any audio device that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except one labeled "PHONO"). Get a cable like the one described here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT one labeled "Phono".

Testimonial: "Thank you. I will give this a try."
The pivot that balances the fm signal meter has jammed, it would have to be taken apart, the outer lens removed to attempt a repair, this is a very tricky operation, if you hit the receiver on the side nearest to the meter, the needle should move back and forth freely,"indicating the meter is good" but if it fails to move the mechanical part of the meter is faulty.
