Question about Audio & Video Receivers
HI I HAVE FIXED THE SAME FAULT ON MY SONY SCANNER BUT NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!. YOU WILL HAVE TO UNSOLDER AND EXTRACT THE CONTROL AS THE TRACK SPRING LEAVES HAVE BECOME WEAK AND ARE NOT TOUCHING THE TRACK PROPERLY.CAREFULLY TAKE APART THE CONTOL CLEAN ANY RESIDUE ON THE TRACK AND CONTACT SPRINGS THEN RE ASSEMBLE AFTER SLIGHTLY BENDING THE CONTACT LEGS TO IMPROVE PRESSURE ON THE TRACK. BEST OF LUCK I HAVE GOT A SPARE WHICH MIGHT FIT YOUR MODEL. CHRIS

Using something like CRC's CO contact cleaner (http://www.crc.co.nz/item_prod.asp?pid=184), spray down near the volume control with the supplied extension tube. About 2mls should do it. It's real tricky to get to the inside of the volume control on this device but somewhere close should do the trick.
Problem is caused by dust inside the potentiometer. I have the same unit that had the same problem, this sorted the problem for me. It won't be a permanent fix but it should but you a few more years.
