How can I fix the loud tone in the audio of the MX-100

Customer Question

How can I fix the loud tone in the audio of the MX-100 weather radio.

Customer: Midland model mX-100 age unknown, but out of warenty.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Time unknown. The unit had been unpluged because of the loud screech on all channels. This seems to be a problem to many of the uniden MX series weather radios.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: How much is this going to cost?
JA: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Technician's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).
