Ampeg B2 problem

  1. Hi
    Last week end my amp (B2 combo with 15") start to act weird. The signal pop & crack with a sound drop. I'd checked the speaker and no problem. So After some research I was surprise about 2 things:
    1st it seam to be a Crate/Ampeg stuff??
    2nd that issue is recurent with the B2 & B2R...

    Today I opened the head and noticed that it's very sensitive. With only a little touch (chopstick) or movement of the frame it react. Also the limiter light is flashing with the pop/cracking.

    Can't figure out were the soldier or component is causing this.
    Before I bringing to the tech, I would like to have your opinion.
