Depends what's up with it!
For example if it has been broken then it will have be replaced.
If it is crackling or cutting out when you move it up or down, then some dirt or wear of the contacts is causing the problem. This can be cured sometimes with a spray of Servisol Switch Cleaner (Video 40 is the best) often used to clean VHS video heads. Spray it directly into the tracks of the control, for best results and move the volume control around (no power).
You can get it from several places such as Maplin (UK) or Radio Shack (USA). Even seen it on Amazon.

This is an older way that makers of CD changers used to get CDs into cars that didn't have them.  This is what they tried to get people to by them.  I was never a fan of this system as the sound quality was never better than listening to FM radio.  There is a unit in the car, usually under the dash behind the glove box, that the CD changer is plugged into.  This unit has the FM antenna from the car plugged into it, and then a cable that is the same as that coming from the antenna going from the unit under the dash plugged into the FM antenna jack of the radio in the dash.  All this unit does is take the digital, high quality sound from the CDs, transmit it on an FM frequency (usually low on the FM band 80s, 90s or low 100s) and then you tune the radio into that FM frequency to get the sound form the CDs.  Problem is, the sound quality was only as good as FM radio.  A pretty poor way of getting CDs into cars.  But they sold millions of these things.  If it isn't working, the wiring may have come loose, the fuse to the unit under the dash might be blown, or something is disconnected.  if you go all through the FM dial, 0.1 at a time and don't hear it, it is time to get under the dash near the glove box and poke around.  Good luck.  If it were me, I would take all this gear out and put a new CD/MP3 player where the factory radio currently sits.

Sounds like an internal prob within the reciever, since recievers have radio tuners in em, maybe a prob in the input switching in it. I assume you are running unbalanced rca cables out of the dvd player into the reciever as it probably doesn't have balanced input capability, unbalanced lines are susceptible to R.F.I. ( radio frequency interference ) but I doubt if that's the problem here unless maybe you are running very long cable lengths from the dvd player to the reciever. Try using a different input and see if the problems still there, can use any input other than phonograph really as they are all line level inputs.

First swap wires on the input and see if same side has a problem. If not then input wires or jacks causing it. If wires swap doesnt do anything then switch speakers with wires. If that doesnt work try to clean speaker connectors but there is a big chance that amplifier need to be repaired

Try to use different discs. Older unit may have problem writing high speed discs. Try to find 1x or 2x discs. OPC-optical power calibration. Another possibility that yourlaser is on the way out

Check to make sure your speakers are in phase. This means that they are both wired the same way. Common problem, and can damage your amplifier if not changed. Positive and Negative must be the same on all speakers.

Unless you have extensive knowledge of electronics and the equipment necessary to troubleshoot the issue, I would look for a reputable repair center. The unit has components inside that eventually fail.
