$89.95.

Is it the knob, or the encoder/shaft underneath the knob?
Thank you, when I try to turn up the volume or scroll on anything it goes up/down/up/down. For instance when I try to increase volume from 5 it'll go 6/5/6/5/6/5/6.

That might be a solder joint issue, or it might be a bad encoder. Do you have any of the other symptoms I mentioned?

This video is from a unit that had been to Uniden for the cold solder joint issue about a year ago. It still worked OK, but obviously was a problem waiting to happen.

The 3 pins on the right ant the pin on the far left had been resoldered by Uniden, and didn't move when probed. All of the others were loose; you can see the pin moving sideways when pressed.
