Question about Yamaha RX-V1200 Receiver

1 Answer

Volume knob quirks

The volume knob on my rx-v1200 is hardly functional. Turn it to the right, and the volume jumps up and down within a short range. If you're lucky, it might track well and adjust properly, but this is so rare that the knob is almost useless. 
I can only adjust the volume on the remote, and even that is now becoming difficult. All other remote functions seem to work fine, but the volume adjustment has to be held for a long time, and then the volume makes a fast adjustment. No individual "taps" for smaller adjustments. 
Is this a common problem? A cheap/expensive fix? Something I could fix if I take it apart and replace faulty parts? Any input or direction would be great!

    is there any site where i can find some sort of schematics or guide for opening up the receiver and locating these parts? or, any tips for where i might purchase replacement parts (volume control switch)?

    I have the same problem with a Yamaha RX-V430. I was told that it could be a number of things, but unlikely to be the physical knob itself but more of an electronics problem some where...

    Did you end up getting this fixed??

If you know how to repair, then replace the volume control switch. it is a digital type/mechanical type of switch with silicone oil on it to prevent sudden turn of volume. if i were the repairman i can simply clean the contacts of the volume control and pour silicon oil again. but i really dont know in your area if they try to clean those.

Pioneer receiver -no volume or volume display on screen. As if the function has disappeared. Knob still turns; just NO effect


Did the volume control get an impact? Could be internal damage to the digital control. Did it act up prior to this non-function, like volume went up on a down command or jump up or down when a slight turn was made? Thnose would reinforce a damaged volume control.

sounds like you need to take it in to have it looked at. no simple fix unless you are an appliance technician. hard to walk a beginner through. i suggest calling an stereo repair guy.

Yamaha RX-V800 volume knob on receiver not working.


It sounds like the volume control pod has gone bad and needs replaced (The knob shaft connects to the pod main body and the inside of the volume pod is what controls the rate of volume,If the inside becomes worn ,broken or dirty the volume will become erratic) Replace volume pod ! ..You may try cleaning by taking off the volume knob and getting a can of pressure air and blowing the dust out!
Please rate response!!

if you are not really that technical type that can make repairs then it will be very hard for you to replace it yourself. not hard to find the volume control, it is mounted on a board. you dismantle the board first then remove desolder the volume control. it think you can onyl get the parts from yamaha service.

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
