static question

Post by lane kel » Tue, 06 Dec 1994 23:36:52

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but:

When I turn on my old receiver, I get a large burst of static.  I'm afraid I'll blow out a speaker.
What could be causing this, and how can I fix it?

If this is the wrong forum for my question, sorry.  If someone could direct me to a better news group
I'd appreciate it.  Didn't see a FAQ.

It's probably a noisy volume control pot. Try spraying some Quietrol
on the pot and working it a bit. If that doesn't help, you may need
to replace the pot.
