My radio has started with a high pitched buzzing sound when power to the radio is on. Noise stops when turn radio off. Have to turn up radio really loud to drown out the buzzing sound. 2008 Astra standard system

Thanks but no. The stations are still tuned correctly. The buzzing does sound like its coming from behind the control panel.
Not the speakers.

Possibly a. Poor connection at control panel would remove it and check that first.
