I recently bought a SR3 from a seller on e-bay, and it has developed an annoying buzz. This happens only when using the radio on AM. When listening to the radio, everything is perfectly clear, but every 20 seconds (measured with a stopwatch!), it gives a buzz lasting for about a half-second.
Do you have any idea what could be causing this? Or, where you might direct me?
Thanks for any info you may be able to give.
Grace, Peace, and most of all, Love.

A lot of times they do this so they can charge the right amount to ship to your exact address. There are times when shipping costs may exceed the amount they set beforehand and then they end up losing on that end. Usually there is the option to calculate shipping or in the description of shipping details it says it will be added based on your location and shipping preference. I know it may say free shipping even at times but I learned to always read all of the description and fine print. They seem to think it helps them sell more if you don't see the added cost, which in this case as you stated that the sale wouldn't have occurred. Annoying and shady for sure, check the info over and see if shipping costs were indeed covered and if not contact the seller first, if not happy with there response see if they will cancel the order, then if not still, try the auction sight if you feel you were mislead
Yes the serial No. usually indicates the frequency band the radio works on, but not always, because a lot of radios nowadays can operate on both VHF & UHF, so not being familiar with your model, I can't give you a definitive answer.
I do have the feeling, for what it's worth, that it is in fact a UHF band radio, but don't take that as gospel.

Hang in there my friend, there will be an answer soon.
I have the same problem, and cant seem to fix it. I know it has to do with the audio chatching the camera making the noise. Listen, take your camera and turn the function to take a video clip, then listen to your camera. Isnt it making the same noise as you hear on the video clip?
If you're using the Play n Charge kit, then you might be hearing some buzz/whine through the USB power. Use the X1 without the Play n Charge. Does that help?
If you unplug the chat-controller cable from the X1 volume control box, can you now hear shots and explosions without the annoying beeping/buzzing noise? If so, then you may have a bad chat-controller cable, and you should have it replaced.
It could be the transformer, need to get it serviced. Nothing will happen but the noise will get louder and more annoying. Most of the time the transformers have a plastic plug to conceal the magnetics and the coil. The glue on the plastic loosens and can create the buzzing noise.
isolate the buzz:
1. completely disconnect it from the mount and have an assistant hold it...turn it on ms
2. if buzz stops, then remount using packaging foam (or wood tile under-layment foam)
3. if buzz, then electric coil for ms is faulty...new motor
