Having problems with your Boston Acoustics BA735 Computer Speakers ?

Volume on/off potentiometer

\015 Hello. I have a Boston BA735 that I haven't used for years. The volume/power control pot is bad now. If I plug in the power cord the power automatically comes on the speakers and the volume is full blast. Volume control can be manipulated when tinkering with the stem but it's unstable. Power can only be shut off by unplugging it. All else looks to be fine. I need a replacement pot but have NO idea where to find one. I've looked and looked but I can't find a suitable match. Need help finding this simple little part!! Thanks.\015

Answers :

\015\012You didn't mention where you are from, so it's hard to recommended a parts source. There are a few of variables here.
\015\012Such as:
\015\0121. The resistance value of the potentiometer.
\015\0122. The length and diameter of the shaft.
\015\0123. The shaft end determining what type of knob it will accomodate.
\015\0124. Physical size (depth & circumference with on/off switch).
\015\012You might try mcmelectronics.com but again, I don't know where you are located. Have you tried contacting the manufacturer's parts department and seeing if you can order the part?
\015\012If you can gain access to some tuner cleaner spray/electrical contact cleaner spray, you can try spraying that into the pot and see if it restores the volume control. The on/off switch is probably shot but it won't hurt to spray that as well. The spray is also available from mcmelectronics.com
\015\012Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
\015\012Good luck!
