If recently serviced then there may be an internal coax not connected properly this problem is usually caused by an intermittent crimp-connection on the pins at the ends of the coax cable that brings the transmitter intermediate-frequency["TIF" signal from the IF Unit to the RF Unit. The person who carried out the repair should address this... Its a common issue with the 830.
