Strange line on my screen - Pace Twin

I have a trusty old Pace Twin PVR in the kids TV room. Recently, a line of sparkly 'noise' has started appearing on the TV - but only from the Pace Twin source (ok on all other inputs).

I have changed the scart and reset the Pace, but neither provided a permanent fix.

I think the sparkly line gets more prominent as the box warms up....

Any ideas? :lease:

This suggests break though noise from the power supply.

A couple of the larger smoothing caps have been known to cause problems in this unit.
The tops bulge before failure.

Any DIY solutions available or is time for the skip?

It may be worth lifting the lid and seeing if there is anything untoward with the mentioned caps.
If they were the culprit it is not expensive or difficult to replace them ... for someone who is comfortable with the basic techniques.

This diagnosis is just a reasonable surmise on my part of course.

Beyond that, unfortunately this is not a known symptom of anything that might involve DIY solutions.
