Go to radio shack near you and buy a contact cleaner(64-4315)----apply the contact cleaner in volume and move it forward and backward until you get good sound if this failed you must change volume control.

There is a crackle when i turn the volume knob.


First unplug it. Sounds like you need to spray some tuner cleaner in the pots that are crackling. Pull the knob off and you should be able to use a spray can of tuner cleaner with the straw that comes with them to spray into the potentiometer , then rotate the pot several times while it is still wet. After cleaning them all, wait 10 minutes and then try.

There's a distinct crackling sound on my Headset. What can I do?


I have the same problem, but only in Windows, and only on my laptop (It's a Compaq 515). I do not get the problem if I pair it with my phone, or if I plug the receiver into any of my other computers. The big thing is: If I reboot into Linux, the noise stops.

Speakers make crackling sound and sound goes in and out.


If the sound crackles when the volume is turned up or down there may be an issue with the volume switch. If the volume is going up and down on its own, I would recommend that you need a new unit as the cost would be greater to fix, then to replace.

The sound is distorted and overwhelmed by static


Depends what the real problem is.

Is it related to certain sources only - try new or reseated cables,swap it to a different input; single channel - swap to isolate; or certain controls that have become noisy? A shop might be able to get some tuner cleaner into them.

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.

I have an old Panasonic RF 888 portable radio. It is in excellent condition, except the volume is very low and scratchy.


Have you tried opening up the radio and spraying contact cleaner into the volume potentiometer? This is a common problem in older electronics. The RF 888 has 4 screws on the back. Remove those and you can lift off the back cover. (Be careful because those screws pass through the center of the radio and hold the front cover in place.) Get some electronic cleaner at Radio Shack and spray it into the small opening on the side of the volume control. Rotate the volume several times and let the spray evaporate and see if things sound better.

Noisy channel of receiver


Generally, crackling noises come from anyplace there is a mechancial connection for the sound signal. The volume control, main/remote speaker switch and possibly the headphone jack. That is where the contacts must be cleaned, but it requires dissassembly. Try operating the main/remote speaker switches, and plug/unplug a headphone several times. I am assuming there is still audio behind that crackling. Are you using both main and remote speakers simultaneously?

The source volume is too high or output from source is too powerful or the receiver is damaged. Try turning the volume down on the source device (cd player/dvd/satellite receiver etc) and recover the overall volume by turning the amp up. Also if the source device has any tone controls, return them to a flat setting, again using the amp to recover the sound richness.
