2006 volume drop

2006 volume drop

Post by Jeff Lack » Sat, 16 Sep 1995 04:00:00

Has anyone had any experience with the volume on a RS 2006 scanner
gradually dropping (over a period of a couple of years)?  I have to
turn the volume knob quite a bit higher to get the same volume (no, I'm
not losing my hearing :) ).

Just wondering if this is an easily fixable problem.

The condition you describe is usually caused by deterioration
of the electrolytic capacitor in series with the audio amplifier
output and the speaker.    I've replaced these caps in other models,
including the PRO-2004 and several BC800XLTs.
