SOURCE: Speaker noise

The contacts on the volume control (potentiometer) get oxidized over time on any analog rotary volume control. With the power off, crank the volume control back and forth real fast for a minute or two, this will do the most cleaning of the contacts that you can do without access to the insides. Ultimately you'll probably need to sprary some tuner wash/tuner cleaner or other electronic parts cleaner in the know (with the electricity disconnected) and then work the knob back and forth. Tuner wash bottles are available at electronic specialty stores or radio shack and usually have a long extension tube (like what comes with WD40). You might be surprised where you can reach with the extension tube.

SOURCE: Volume Control

The volume control shaft lube, over time and heat exposure, will flow down and corrupt the contact between the volume twister and the spring loaded sensor. Pull the cover off the tuner, locate the volume control and take out the two screws holding it in. It looks like a small circuit board with the volume twister attached.
The base of the twister is hooked to the circuit panel by four metal tabs. Pry these guys gently away and pull the twister free. There will be a metal disk at the end of the volume control shaft, and will have a goopy lube residue on the face of it that can be cleaned with electric contact cleaner or some other kind of solvent. Wipe it clean,(do not immerse) reattach, and test. Worked perfect for me.
Good Luck,
F

SOURCE: i need output circuit board

I did a little resaerch on these and can't find anything good to tell you about these. Most articles claim these speakers were part of a big scam where people in a white van or other vehichle were selling these claiming they had to get rid of them because of an overstock and they made people some real good deals. I can't seem to find any legitimate parts dealers for these. There are lots of places willing to repair circuit boards and you might want to look locally at a repair shop to see if they can be fixed. I suggest using Google to find a repair shop or ebay to look for a new speaker. they are still out there on ebay. If youdo a search using just TR-180 you can look these articles up and decide fopr yourself on which route to take.

SOURCE: volume control of yamaha ap-u70 defect

- Unplug Ap-U70 from power
- Remove side and top plates
- Remove front panel (3 connectors onboard)
- Lift up front pcb from the main plasic front

Then you see the poti with 4 clamps - bend the 4 clamps carefully aside and open the poti - you will see there's alot of oil/fat inside the poti that shouldn't be there - remove it all with some cleaning fluids

Assemble all together and see: Volume control is back

Within the years the oil/fat goes where it shouldn't ...

Greetings from Sven, Germany

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 have a marantz sr4320 receiver. The volume control knob is not working---I can't get any sound no matter the volume number. "d8" is now showing, too, following the number. I have followed...


Do you mean "db"?

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING. The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Turn the volume down.

While you're squinting at the front panel, find the manual and evaluate every indicator on the face to make sure you understand what they mean and how they might affect operations. Look for Speakers NOT enabled, Muting ON, a Tape or other input inadvertantly selected. If you fail to find the errant setting, treat it like a new install and set it up all over again according to the manual.

Scratchy volume potentiometer


Try cleaning your volume potentiomenter with contact cleaner (they come in spray can's), the scratchy sound is audible when you turn your volume control on, the contacts inside your potentiometer accumulated dust or some other particles.

Logitech S500 Volume Knob Broken


The simplest thing to try is some compressed air directed to the knob. This would clear out any dust or dirt that may be obstructing the knob. I am not sure what you mean by power cut so I am shooting in the dark here. If you mean a power surge that caused the volume to quit working then I would suggest an external volume control such as http://www.amazon.com/Koss-155954-VC20-Volume-Control/dp/B00001P4XH/ref=pd_bbs_2/002-2257004-6895258?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1194009359&sr=8-2

Where can i buy the proper volume pot for my alesis sr 16?


If you are willing to pay actual cost for shipping, I have an SR-16 with a broken screen that i could send you to salvage parts from. I bought it, I believe in December of 07 & other than the squished screen, I believe it to be in great shape. I just bought another one instead of fixing this one, so I certainly don't need it. Email me if you are interested. My guess is that USPS shipping would be like 2 or 3 bucks,as long as you are in the states.

Alesis SR-16 distorted sounds


The distorted and low volume output plus noise is usually caused by using the wrong power supply adapter. The Alesis SR-16 takes a 9V "A/C" supply not "DC". The A/C supply provides a negative voltage swing which wouldn't exist with a DC supply. So check and make sure you have 9V A/C output supply not DC.

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.
