Question about Insignia Audio & Video Receivers

Purchased your A/V reciever NS-R5101 yesterday. When I removed it from the carton I noticed that Master Volume Dial has no stops in either direction. Dial turns continually in clockwise and counter clockwise direction. How does this adjusts the volume. Most volume controls that I had have dial stops in both directions. Please reply be fore I put in place.

This type of volume control is often called an encoder. Basically it is a control for an electronic volume control chip. Rather than a vairable resistor like the "old fashioned" volume controls, this one basically is a rotary on/off switch. As you turn it the internal fingers pass over copper bars causing quick on/off sequences. These are interpreted as vol up and vol down.

Realise that this is an over simplification, but is essentially how it works. Your unit is fine.

Need to replace volume knob


Did mine years back - need to find part RV1802 1-418-773-11 ENCODER, ROTARY (MASTER VOLUME)
Volume went up and down turning in one direction. About 2 hour job, pull both knobs off, remove cover and front plate to get to volume switch assembly, replacement part requires desoldering and solder on new part.

I have a pioneer vsx-d704s reciever and when it is at a very low to 0 volume i get a low level scratching only on the left side. im not sure if it goes away when i turn it up or not but i dont think so


The volume knob is dirty. Behind the face of receiver the "pot", (as they are called) needs sprayed with contact cleaner. I use CRC QD contact cleaner. If the volume is a slider your can use the straw type devise for pin point spraying in the slider slot with receiver off and unplugged. After spraying work the slider back and forth to distribute the cleaner inside. If you have to remove the cover for a rotary "pot"spray while working the dial. Hope that helps..

Can't run tv sound from my Vizio M190VA tv through my Insignia NS-R2000 receiver so it will play through my speakers in the ceiling which are connected to the receiver. Is it possible to do what I am...


I have no idea why manuafacturers or users think a TV is a good place to originate sound in this Cable Box age. The Cable/SAT box is for all intents and purpose a hi-fi multichannel audio source like any other audio component, where the TV's audio was probably an afterthought.

With that in mind, source the TV-related audio directly to the NS and skip all that zig-zagging of audio all over the room before it gets to your ears.

I also recommend taking all high-end video directly to the TV/monitor from whatever sources you have. Added cabling (and cost) doesn't help. Let the specialty devices each handle what they master.

Does that help?

Hello,sounds as if its an older reciever and the control is simply dirty(dusty) . What i would recommend (if you can access it) is simply spraying contact cleaner into the control .Contact cleaner can be purchased at a radio shack or online ,just get a quick drying one and do it while its unplugged.

Onkyo TX-DS 595 receiver surround channel unrealiable


How you power off the amp won't hurt it generally. I used to fix ONKYO amps under warranty, and I can tell you now, it will be full of dry solder joints. Take you unit to your local repairer, and they will resolder all the offending PCB's inside. This type of repair will fix 99% of strange audio noises and cutting in and out etc. for ONKYO recievers. Otherwise this is quite a good product.

My reciever volume cuts in and out and crackles when adjusting


You can CLEAN / LUBRICATEthe volume control know with a CONTACT/CONTROL cleaner, I use a product from Radio Shack, this works wonders on drum type electo mechanical devices which are basically volume control knobs, easy to do, just remove the round knob and spray into the openings with the small tube attached, and rotate in both directions, be sure to unplug the unit first, on a few occasions it is best to remove the front panel to acheive better coverage to the rheostat type volume body, anyway it always cures the crackling and distorting sound, I would give this a try before replacing the part.

Teac AG V7700 Receiver problem powering up


I have a Teac ag-7700 and when I would try to power it on it would shut off. I did get it to turn on for about 10 minutes and then it shut off. Now when I try to power it on the light on volume dial stays lit but the LED does not light up and no sound through speakers.

Volume on my Onkyo Receiver


Yes it is. I have the 705. My room mate has the 605. Both AVR's will not have appreciable volume until 50 on the dial.
The dial in not linear. I don't know of anyone who has plotted the scaling of the volume control yet.
I have found much useful user info on avsforum.com. Owners post Q&A based on experiences.
Search the forum for "official onkyo TX-SR605" thread.
Some comparable info may also be found under the "official onkyo TX-SR705".

Hey Tex

You are on the right track, sounds like a noisy volume control. Can often be repaired with a squirt of cleaner spray into the potentiometer assembly.But I suggest you use crc2-26 contact lubricant spray, not silicone spray which is a great materials lubricant, but not electrical. Worst case, the Vol Potentiometer, may have to be replaced. Go for the CRC first and see how it goes. Good Luck, happy FixYa
