Unhappy Carver PM 1.5 Amps

I've had a Carver PM 1.5 for years and it has served me well on the road as a professional musician. One problem I could never solve, however, was an annoying "buzz" whenever the amp is turned on (and connected to speakers). It sounds like a ground loop and occasionally I have had success by using a 2-prong adapter to lift the ground. It doesn't always work, though. I always make sure that the amp is plugged into the same power strip as the rest of my sound system also trying to avoid a loop. Is there anything else I can try? I have recnetly been using the amp in quieter settings and the buzz is really annoying. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Welcome to the forum Steve. This may be of help. Can you work on it yourself?
