SM 124 "buzzing" sound all the time through speaker

Postby Chandler » Tue Jul 18, 2017 7:42 pm

I have seen (or should that be heard :) this a few times with SM 124's

When switched on there is a noticeable "buzzing" sound from the speaker which doesn't go whether the volume is turned up or down

So i'm guessing something has failed inside (it sounds like a really bad earth)

The monitor and sound still works perfectly fine apart from this annoying "buzzing"

Does anyone have any idea what it could be? i have heard that this could have been caused by the 13 pin din plug being inserted upside down into the Atari as it is possible and possibly blowing something inside the SM 124

If anyone has any ideas or info please let me know :D
