Beta 87 fault quick question
« on: February 13, 2019, 10:53:10 AM »
Hi I know there lots of wise heads here wondered if I could have your thoughts....

My beta 87 works fine for 30 secs of a minute or two then audio fades to nothing..... if I un plug plug back in it works again full level but again for 30 secs to two mins again....

I have cleaned the board re soldered connections.....if I take basket off I hear the usual hum and the hum fades away with the I think capsule its self is ok....

any thoughts would be very welcome thanks
