will be soldered to a component board. The component board must be replaced.
Unless the screw that attaches the wheel to the rheostat has come loose, then you're in luck.
The volume control wheel on the side of my Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 has begun to malfunction. Its either stuck or broken....so that the only way to control the volume is through the on screen volume control.
Anyway, was wondering if anyone has had experience replacing the wheeled volume control on these laptops? I haven't taken the back/bottom off yet....are there any certain precautions to take here? Thanks!
