When mine did this I opened the face up and figured out that the volume down button switch had a broken contact which made the volume and the first 3 station presets freak out. It took me about a half hour - 45 min. to fix it (since I had to diagnose it first) Won't cost a dime if you fix it this way...

First figure out if one of your volume buttons doesn't feel right when you press it (it doesn't 'click' or act like the rest of the buttons do)

When you open the face you 'll see all of the white switches (small boxes with silver surrounding the button on the top) take a tiny flathead electronics or eyeglass screwdriver (or something like that) use it to "pry" up the silver piece that surrounds the button (The edges on each end have a 'lip' that holds this metal piece down & you might need a magnifying glass depending on your eyesight.)
It will bend but you can flatten it back out.
Once it's off - the button will come out and if you look down into the 'box' of the switch you'll see a small piece of metal (the contact)
Use your small flathead screwdriver to lift it out. (or turn the circuit board over and tap it out)
it is a small rectangle piece of metal that has a 'bump' in the middle.
Check to see if the "bump" is split/broken in the middle. (mine was)

I then did this same process to the switch for the AM radio button (since I don't use it) then I took that 'contact' out since the 'bump' wasn't split and put it in the volume down switch, then I put it back together (using) the tip of the screwdriver to press the metal that was a little bent back down under the 'lips' on the edge and over the button.

Now you can put the 'face' back together and "viola"!!
It works properly, the volume doesn't freak out anymore, and you can enjoy a properly working car stereo again!

I just bought a Coby home theater system 5.1 surround sound dvd/cd/ player model#765. I've got it all hooked up but I have one problem, when I want to listen to my tv stations through the home theater...

Hi - Your Home Theater System and your TV should have separate volume controls. You should be able to control each individually. Start by checking the volume level on your TV with your HTS shut-off. Turn the volume on your TV all the way down to 0.

Next, turn your HTS on and check the volume level there. Is it still loud? If so, try turning the volume down on your HTS. That should do the trick. If its not loud then you know you can control the volume on either the HTS or the TV. If this answer does not help, then please write us back with a little more detail. Thanks.

I have a gateway laptop and some altec lansing multimedia speaker system,, i can here threw them but its not loud and i turned the volume up help please

Okay, here are a few things you can try. Right click your little speaker in the task bar and click on "open volume control". Check to see if the volume of any of the items listed is on mute or turned down too far. If the setting for "PC speakers" is on mute that might be the problem so try adjusting the volume there first.

If you use a digital cable box, it could be that the volume on that isn't turned up all the way. I didn't even realize the box had volume controls until 2 years after I got it...makes a HUGE difference now
