My volume control is backwards.....i turn it up manually and the sound goes dwn....turn it dwn sound goes up...hummmmmmmmmm.....while using the remote....everything is fine......can some-body help me.....;-(
I bought my RXV800 in late 2001. This amplifier is absolutely fabulous and I understand others -like me- being unhappy when it starts to fail. I have the volume control issue as well, it started to work normal for at least 5 years, then there was a period of 1 year that the volume neither went up or down when you turn the volume control and then finally a 3rd phase was that it more or less works reverse.
It is solvable and I repaired it myself for $ 0,0. The only requirement is that you are a bit handy. You need to open the box and find yourself a way to the volume control (and you know where this sits of course) because this is the one that needs to be repaired. This is 35 screws away from you in total but this sounds a lot worse than it is !
It is indeed the volume control that needs to be repaired. In an analog amplifier this component would contain a resistor (potentiometer) but hey this is a digital volume control and looks from the outside the same but isn't at all. You need to take this volume control with 5 contacts of its print with a soldering iron. Open this potentiometer lookalike and clean it with some absorbing paper. The issue is that there is a kind of oil/grease from the shaft (which is there in order to turn smoothly) which has leaked into the area of the contacts in the middle. Just clean it and turn 50 times with it in order to spread the remaining oil/grease if there would be any. Close it again, solder it onto its print and switch on the unit... you will see that it is repaired... not for 1% or 10% but for the full 100%.

i would say that the component that controls the sound level (called a potentionmeter) or (varible resistor) is either broken or faulty....you will need to remove the cover and inspect the area around the volume control just to make sure it is not broken or that any wiring has just become dry jointed....if all is good then what i would suggest to do is to find out the value of the pot...normally there around 10-50K then youll need to get a replacement...if this still dosen't fix it or your confident enough to look or fix it yourself i would take it to a local electronics repair shop....remeber to disconnect unit from power before removing cover hope this helps,ben
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!

make sure you didnt turn off speaker set A on the reciever. cause from what i can tell from the manual you may have hit a button to turn them off. now on your reciever look below the power button on the unit itself. below that is a speaker A/B push the A button to make sure its on or the B depending how your speakers are rigged. if this isnt the problem let me know and i can help you with another solution -Nate
