Unhappy Volume problem...

My JBL av/reciver JSR 635 has a bit of a problem. The volume keeps fluxuating, louder,quiter,louder,quiter etc. Was wondering if this is a major problem or if it can be fixed quite easily? Just bought it from a friend so no warranty or the like. Dont know weather to get my money back or to get it seen to -Is it a common fault? Easily/cheaply repaired?

Any suggestions, or advice would be great.

Thanks for your time, great forum by the way.

A

These things sell for about $10 - $20 in the US. I wouldn't think it would be worth the trouble.

The volume control likely is just a pulse generator of sorts for a digital control. Still, they can get dirty. Perhaps it can de cleaned? I dunno...

If its cheap and easy enough to fix ill get it done.

I've seen these amps sell on eBay in the US for less than $25. They are getting a bit long in the tooth, and only support Dolby Pro Logic, and none of the newer Dolby digital formats.

Dirt is the likely culprit, but I have no idea about what it uses for a volume pot (maybe a motorized control...??) so I can't recommend a way to clean it.

If you could fix it yourself, it might be worth it...but to pay someone...probably not.

Wish I had seen the inside of one and I could give some halfway knowledgeable advice.
