Did you manage to fix it? Guessing it was possibly an old capacitor in the PSU? Might bring up my tricked-out BBC B next month, with a Compact Flash hard drive upgrade.
I've not fixed it. Don't really care enough about it right now, but I found many people on ebay selling a 3-capacitor bundle to refurbish the PSU which only costs a few quid, as well as others offering to exchange it for a refurbished one for a few quid more. I might fix it and sell it on. I never was that enthused by the BBC Micro - it was fun at the time.
