WHEN I TURN THE VOLUME DOWN IT DOESNT LIKE TO GO DOWN RIGHTAWAY,SOMETIMES IT GOES UP VERY FAST WHEN I'M TURNING THE KNOB SLOW, OR WHEN I TURN IT UP SLOWLY THE VOLUME GOES DOWN,IN ORDER TO USE THE VOLUME KNOB I MUST GO VERY VERY SLOW. IT HAS DONE THIS EVER SINCE I TOOK IT OUTTA THE BOX. I WOULD HAVE TOOK IT BACK TO BEST BUY , BUT I DIDNT TAKE IT OUTTA THE BOX UNTIL I MOVED INTO MY PLACE, WHICH WAS PAST THE 90 DAY RETURN POLICY. SO, IS THERE A RECALL ON THIS ? OR EVEN SEND ME THE PART THAT WOULD FIX THIS?THANK YOU .

Re: VOLUME CONTROL PROBLEM.
If the volume control can be turned continuously in either direction (no stopping), then the control is what is called an encoder and the behavior you are describing is an internal logic failure. If the control has an upper and lower limit (only turns so far), then it is a standard volume control and is physically broken and needs to be replaced. In either case, the unit should be under warranty. Return it to Best Buy for repair. Given that it just came out of the box, talk to a manager and request an exchange.

The volume control needs a good flush out, take the unit apart to expose volume control pod, buy some electronic contact cleaner and flush the pod while turning the volume back and forth, repeat 2 or 3 times. Note some pods have small slot where you can spray.
1. The volume up button on the remote may be stuck down- try wiggling the button to get it out. If it isn't the remote if the local volume control is in fact two buttons perhaps that one is stuck in or damaged.
2. The dvd sounds like it needs a new laser unit- a worn laser unit may play up like this. It might be time for a new one as replacement can be sometimes more than the cost of a new one nowdays!
The fact that it turns down again means it's probably fixable.
Open it up (switch it off first), and fetch a soldering iron. Look around for wires that go from the volume control and see if any are loose connections/broken wires etc etc. Solder these again, and it should work.
If you don't fancy this, take it to a hifi shop and they'll fix it for you (there'll probably be a fee involved)
the volume control needs to be cleaned. this control is a step switch basicly. and the switch contacts are not making proper contact. cleaning this requires dis-assembly and desoldering so if you are inclined to do this work happy fixing if not it shouldn't cost much to fix.
This sounds like a case of a dirty/defective rotary encoder. The volume control used here is not the conventional potentiometer type , but a rotary set of switches that tell the sytem if the knob is being turned left ot right.
Do you think you'd be able to open the unit and spray some contact cleaner into the rotary encoder? It might involve dis-assembling it down to front bezel removal.
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.
