CT17 LED illumination intermittent

Guys,
One of my CT17s is driving me a little crazy. The AM/FM radio station LEDs are illuminating intermittently. Sometimes on, sometimes off. Heck, I don't really listen to FM on this thing, but you know, want it right. If I tap on the front sometimes the lights come right on and stay on. Other times, nothing; sometimes the lights are illuminated when powering on the unit, other times, not. Once the lights are on, they stay on, you can tap it and they won't go off again. All other front panel lights work just fine.

Before taking it out of the system and opening up the case, anyone have idea on root cause or how to fix? Sounding like the proverbial "loose connection."

Thanks in advance guys!

Yep, I searched first and saw your posting, but no solution from the collective Carver brain trust. Will keep you posted if we get the intel.

Sounds like poor solder joints. Take apart, retouch all solder points.
