    I have a Grundig Classic 960.  I believe that someone turned the Power/Volume knob past the off position.  The knob now turns, but has no effect on the volume, or power setting.  I have noticed that the knob can be pulled out of the radio. Part of the metal shaft of the control comes right out with it.  Apparently, the metal shaft on the control is made of a brittle material, and just sheered off.  Can a new control be purchased, and be user replaced?

May be difficult unless you have some soldering skills, the double layered or stacked pot is 33.5 k ohm on each layer. One layer is the volume, the other layer is the tone control, it also has the spst off on switch attached. Matching this will be difficult, also the type of "arm" and the length are also have to be matched. If yu can find it or a suitable replacement, there is room to replace the part. Be sure the wires are put back correctly.

If it clicks, then it is getting power from the switch to the starter solenoiod. So if you know the battery is fully charged, then the problem is either one of the battery cables or connections, or the starter itself is defective.`.

Why do my Bose MB4s fade out when cranked up

There are many issues that can cause this. It could be a Power Supply, Amplifier, or scores of other issues. All these units have a microprocessor(computer inside the Bose unit) and are generally controlled with a Rotary Encoder( basically a volume control), or buttons. There are just too many problems that can cause this same issue; dead or won't switch or with indicators blinking.

If you're interested in repairing your unit, please visit my website at Thank you.

If the rotary switch spins freely, as mine does...there is a good chance the locking clips on the rotary switch are broken. You can try epoxying this piece to the top of the pcb. Hot glue does not work well.

I have a marshall mg100hdfx head. it was working fine and I turned it on it started screaming like feedback at full volume. it does this with all volume at zero and without anything plugged in the inp

This could be many things and unless you are electronically adept it is unlikely you can DIY the repair... HOWEVER I want you to try one thing first: Sometimes the contacts on the switches of the Effects send and return go bad leaving the input to the power amp section floating and it can feedback. To test this, plug an INSTRUMENT cable between the send and return effects jacks on the back. This bypasses the contacts, If the amp behaves, you could run it this way getting a short cable or have the amp worked on at a shop to replace the jack. The jacks are really rather poor quality on musical amps in general.

Volume adjuster stays on one level can not increase or reduce volume

The Potentiometer/switch (the rotary knob to adjust the volume) is probably faulty. The original is a 9mm B50K panel pot/switch. I'm on the hunt right now for a replacement.

If I can't get one, I'll have repair it using substitute parts, specifically an appropriately sized SPST switch for the power circuit and a regular B50K potentiometer to adjust the volume.

this is one of those questions that we all dread and we would all be here goes...the most likely cause is going to be a faulty ignition swtch,you can still turn the wheels but no power as the engine thinks you have switched it off.this would never show up on any diagnostic computer........but as i say its just a guess.....and without replacing the switch, you will never know.....seems expensive,replacing bits on a whim.
