I love my old v1 Monitor Station that I've used for years! It's been trusty and reliable until recently. Out of nowhere, the MSv1 output a LOUD, nasty noise and displayed clipped meters (see image below). This happens without any inputs plugged into the device. 

It's worth mentioning that the power supply buzzes slightly, however it's not warm. It may have done this before, but I've never noticed it.

My questions are: any insights into 1) what's going on, and 2) how to fix it?

I fixed the problem when I bought a v2 Monitor Station on ebay.

That doesn't help, I know, but it wasn't worth the hassle to pay for shipping it back for repair and then the costs to fix it.

I had the exact same thing happen, like you described, out of nowhere!  Haven't figured it out yet.
