The volume control on my master speaker has unfortunately snapped off after falling off my shelf. It has broken away from the connections inside the speaker, and really would like some advice as to what to do, can i replace the specific parts and fix the volume control. Alternatively can I buy a new speaker separately to the rest of the set. I emailed the technical/product support division of Logitech and gained no further insight into my situation. Your advice on the matter would be greately appriciated
Thanking you in anticipation

Re: Volume control on the master speaker
If its a rotory type control simply take the rest out or off the pcb if you can and on the side of almost any varable resistor or pot is a value. Look to see if radio shack has that value or check your local electronic parts supply house and solder back into place But you may not get the exact one as they all have differant mechanical standards as the shaft may be too long or it may not fit on the pcb so you will have to drill into the cabinet and mount where theres nothing in the way and hook the wires to the control from where the old control was. Hope this helps good luck

First, plug it in. Next connect the speakers. Center all eq controls both master and channel. Turn off any reverb or effects. Turn the master volume 1/2 way up. Plug a sound source into channel 1 wiyj the channel volume all the way off. Turn on the amp. Slowly raise the channel volume until you heat output. If you get nothing, it's broken.
Sounds like a dirty volume control switch!
If you could open the radio and look for the volume control inside, spray some contact cleaner if there is small hole on the metal cover of that volume control, after spraying play(side to side movement) the knob of the switch so that the contact cleaner would spread inside the switch.
If that does not help, you should replace the volume controller switch with the same value.
A simple electronic technician could replace it.
Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for asking FixYa!
Two possible causes.1) Vol Settings changed in windows2) Bad hardware
1) Check your system's sound settings:
Goto Control Panel
Double Click Sound and Audio devices / Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices
In device Volume Click Advance
Master Volume Control Window will open
Increase all the volumes to max, also make sure that Mute us UNCHECKED.
From the bottom right corner of your screen in system tray, double click a small speaker icon and open Master Volume Control.
For Vista and Windows 7
From system tray (its at bottom right corner of your screen) double click on small speaker icon, it will open Volume mixer
Increase the volume to max.
2) If this does not work, then test your speakers by connecting it to some other system and vice versa.
If you get desired sound volume when you connect some other speakers to your system, then you have to change your speakers. And if your speakers are working fine on other system then you may have to purchase a new sound card.
try ebay or bizrate
it may be easier than you think to fix it.
look for a new cable or a similar end piece and you can splice the new cable onto the old one.
if you would like when you get a new cable i can assist you step by step to fix it.. you will need to get electical tape and wire cutters/strippers
Hi Your Problem need an expert Technician, this Aiwa stereo has the digital type volume control that gives pulses to the cpu to make volume up / Down.
Solution to be fixed by a technician:
- Remove the volume from the front board, disassemble it and clean the conductive parts inside it then reassemble back and check.
