Default Icom 506

I'm having an issue with the volume on this unit, the button has to almost be turned to the max for any noise to be heard. Even playing with the knob back and forth will not emit low volume. I can send it out to be fixed but is it better to just replace the unit? It was already on the boat when i purchased it. The unit seems to transmit fine but unless all the way up you cant hear a reply. any suggestions?

After playing with it today i think the mic is bad. I can't change channels or switch H/L. and the noise is non stop. The screen reads busy but there's no activity. on the radio as i checked with the other 506 on my boat.
