First solution would be to try and use the remote. If the remote is able to, the problem is in the knob. If the remote does not work, the problem resides in the volume board.

The problem resides in the circuitry that the knob is controlling. Unfortunately this knob has a full range of motion, which means that it is simply controlling a computer chip within the unit. (i have an 1801 as well). What has happened is that some component on the volume board has gone bad, which is resulting in your non functioning volume knob.

Unfortunately this is usually a job for a professional.

If you have standard electronics skills (soldering / disassemble / reassemble), you can open the case and find where the volume knob leads to. There should be a smaller board, and see if you can access it. Usually they are rather hard to get to, or to get free to actually see what is going on. The best solution would be to find a parts receiver, and swap boards. This shotgun approach changes everything. Otherwise, look for any damaged components on the board. Swap out any components that are damaged, or appear damaged with comparable replacements.

The volume on my plasma tv goes up to 100 and when i lower the volume it will take a second volume for the volume to go up to 100 how can i fix my tv to lower the


The tact switch is most likely defective which is keeping the volume up engaged. Replace the tact switch should fix the issue. If not the button assembly pcb will need replacement. You can get replacement boards from www.tvcircuitboards.com

Power amp 2 channel connection to Denon a/v amp


You don't mention which AR amp we're talking about.

I think you're trying to say you want to know where to extract the front channels from the Denon to feed the AR amp. Right?

That would be an output on the Denon to an input on the AR.

Basically, take an RCA cable pair from the Denon's Pre Out F & L and connect them to the (presumed) L & R inputs on the unnamed amp.

Set the AR amp at a reasonably high volume (if it has a volume knob) and leave it alone. Run through the speaker level adjustments on the Denon to match the Front to everything else and it will control the volume going forward.

Well, it seems you have your finger on the source of the problem. If accessible, try some tuner cleaner inside the potentiometer.

Denon AVR 1910 Volume Level


My Pioneer VSX-36TX (circa 2002) does the same thing. Modern AVR's count up from minus something to 0db and go just a few db higher into 'plus' territory. It seems arbitrary but that's how it is.

Ask yourself this: who ever really turned the volume knob up to maximum on any amp on purpose, and had speakers survive it? In other words, why have all that capacity on a potentiometer if you never use it?

Little known fact: With that in mind, Bose Corp actually designed a product that intentionally used the full physical travel of a volume control - the Bose Acoustic Wave Music System.

Pioneer DJM-600 Bad feedback when i turn up the master volume


It's not your ground wire with the issue, but your RCA cables. Try disconnecting both turntables, and connect 1 at a time, and do the same test, this way you can isolate the problem. Once you've isolated the problem, then you'll need to have the RCA cables replaced on your turntable.

You might also want to check the Cartridges as well. Sometimes a bad cartridge or headshell connection will cause this issue. Worst case scenario, its your tonearm, but that should be test last.

Also, on the rear of your mixer, there is a gain volume pot, make sure this is not maxed out. Keep it about 3/4 of they up. Again, this is on the rear of your mixer where you connect everything.
