No, I just opened and tightened/crimped the back of one of the Pots (using some pliers) that had come loose, and was wobbling. Did the trick.

When I got the lisa from Jerry, we both suspected a bad PSU. Jerry had not been able to get it to power on at all. When it arrived in Japan (100v vs US120v), It worked. Sporadically and briefly. Now when I use the 1.2 amp PSU and push the power button, there is a chirp. Actually 2 chirps, one when you push in, and the other when you release the power button. Chirp Chirp!
