The two dodgy under rated 10v capacitors are the first things to be replaced.

I had a 345 homebase which had the same thing happen. I am afraid I am not sure what was wrong though, I sent it to Nick who worked his magic on it.

The problem with failing capacitors is that they often cause other components to fail as well.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.
