Default VX-180v HELP

We have a VX-180v radio that receives audio only when the volume knob is pressed down. When there is traffic on a channel, no audio comes through until you press down on the volume knob. The green LED flashes when there is traffic on channels and Yellow LED flashes when there it decodes the selective call. How do I fix the volume knob issue?

Replace the volume control. Call Vertex Parts Dept. and tell them you have a VX180V that needs its volume control pot replaced. They're very helpful on things such as this. The alternative would be to send the radio in to Vertex to have this done.

Smile Vertex 180

Some of the older radios had a speaker connection problem though this sounds like a volume control problem. Can you make it work by pushing on the speaker?
