Static when I turn my volume control on 2006

Post by Gen » Mon, 18 Sep 1995 04:00:00

Ive had a Pro 2006 for 4 years and now when I turn the volume control up or
down as Im doing it I get static. It doesnt happen when Im just listening.
Only when I do adjust it is when this happens.I remember on the old TV sets
when this happened I used tuner cleaner to solve the problem. Will this work
on the volume control on this scanner?  

                         Any help would be appreciated.
                                         E-Mail me with the info.............

It hasn't happened to my 2006, but I know what you're talking.  It's
happened to many radio volume controls I've had.  I would, though, be
careful about using any tuner cleaner inside your scanner.  You
probably could spill that stuff in a TV, and not harm much.  But
the circuitry in your 2006 is much more delicate and tightly
placed.  
But with an old stereo I have with that problem, I often turn the
volume knob all the way back and forth several times (with the
power off).  This seems to temporarily help this condition.

     I have had this problem with various pieces of equipment.  What it
boils down to is usually one of two things.  Cheap volume control
wearing out or dirty volume control.  Solution? Usually it's best to
just replace it with the best quality Variable resistor/Potentiometer
you can find (Making sure it's the same value). Turning it back and
forth usually does solve it temporarily.  Using tuner cleaner on modern
equipment is usually not a good idea in this case because even though
it may solve the problem it will also only be tempoary. This can wear
out the control even more and remove any lubrication put in during
manufactoring making it rougher to turn. I have the same problem with
my PRO-2005 and so far have been to lazy to replace the volume control.
 I hope this helps some.  E-Mail me if you need more assistance.

If the equipment is relatively new, the control is simply dirty & can be
safely/effectively cleaned. Use a "TF" type cleaner with the spout
provided. Completely cover any electronics that could receive
"afterspray" & direct spray into the openning of the control, turning the
control quickly as you spray. Of course, this should be performed with
the unit unplugged; however, even if the PC board is accidentally sprayed,
 the "TF" type cleaner evaporates very quickly (within 30 seconds) AND
leaves NO RESIDUE. This is not true with "tuner cleaner", which leaves
residue. Even if the unit is older, try cleaning 1st. If cleaning is
effective for only a week or 2, replace the control. Good luck, Gary, A/V
