Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I had the same problem and solved it. Mine took about 10mins to turn on (constant buzzing and beating before this).
The problem is the 1000uf and the 220uf capacitors on one of the circuit boards near the front of the device. I replaced these with new ones and problem sorted.
So if you know what your doing, take it apart and solder in some new caps. If not...maybe get a new one!

This is before I read this post and answer above...
I had the same problem with my Ferguson DAB FRG R121D which was just over 2 years old...
First of all it had the display flashing on and off, with popping noise on speaker, then went off completely with faint buzzing noise remaining on speaker.
I noticed inside on the board just behind the front panel...the one with the copper screened section on it, taht the 1000uf 10V cap had domed (ie instead of flat top had domed top = usually means it is ccoked)...I replaced it with a 1000uf 16V one - can is bigger but fits OK - Maplins part number VH50E (£0.56p!)....did the job. Is now fixed but I still have the buzzing noise - so I'll get it open again and change the 220uf as suggested above....
By the way you need a smallish Philips fairly long reach screwdriver to get some of the back screws out.
