    Shut it down, pull the cover off, and blow all of the dust out of the circuitry. Over the years that crap builds up to the point that it becomes a conductor and starts shunting power between places that it shouldn't. High humidity just makes it worse as the dust soaks up moisture and becomes even more conductive. Cleaning it up will often cure many ills. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
