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.
