Played my Blast City for about a half hour today and I started to notice a buzzing sound. I located the source and it is coming from the PSU not the speakers. I turned it off and then back on and the buzzing starts after playing a game for about 10 minutes. Do I need a new PSU or should I clean it. I shot a quick video of the noise and all the wiring seems to be plugged in. I unplugged the cab just to be safe. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've only had the cab for about a year or so and am hoping this is an easy fix. Vid can be found on my YouTube YouTube.com/footmeetsskull1. I'd post it directly in the thread but am away from my computer and posting from my phone.
On second thought I think it may be coming from the monitor going to open the rear service door and see. Is it possible the yoke is starting to vibrate? I've heard that is a common problem. It's just weird as I haven't moved the cab at all and all of a sudden I have this noise. It's not super loud barely noticeable during gameplay. Just want to make sure this baby isn't going to die on me.

I have the same with my Blast City. Sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't. I have noticed that it will go away sometimes when the picture/scene changes on the monitor. I used to have a dedicated Virtua Fighter 2 machine that did the same, but nothing ever happened in the 2 years that we owned it. Should I be worried?
