Issue with Maverick Audio A1 Volume Dial.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Recently, i have noticed a problem with my Maverick Audio A1 amp. I have plugged through my HRT streamer to my laptop. I also have Cambridge audio S30 bookshelf speakers attached to them.

 

The problem is that when I move the volume dial, i hear a distinct screech on the right speaker and it turns of completely. Moving the dial carefully, with a lot of adjustment makes the speaker work though.

 

I was wondering if there was something I could do to fix it.

The volume potentiometer should be cleaned with "Pot Cleaning Cap" or similar product.

 

Edit : Radio shack tuner cleaner is maybe more easy to find.

I am in India and DeOxit is not available here. I was wondering if you could give me names of the brand or chemical composition of these products, so that I could look for substitutes..

This product is only to remove dust an clean up the contact surface, normally is accumulated dust you have to remove, you can try with a air compressed bottle to remove it, moving stronger the potentiometer when you blow it.

 

Don't know the composition, I have just used it long time ago for my musician gears (amp. effects etc...).

..

 

Edit : I hop is not an electrical problem, remove dust and you have to see a difference.

Thank you. I just opened it and blew air into the volume dial and the problem got solved.
