Question about Audio & Video Receivers
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.

Using the tuner
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.
1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.
2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
Each press switches the band between FM and AM.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
To search for stations in the currently selected band,
press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The
receiver will start searching for the next station,
stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning
Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.
Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to
achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.
• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.
