Default Arcadia Tube Flicker When Off

Yes, you did read the title right. My Arcadia tube seems to have started to give off a blue flicker when the PSU is turned off. If I unplug the PSU the flicker stops.

Has anyone got any ideas what could be causing this?

it will be residual current. You may need to replace the FSU. A rare thing you have there...

Cheers John. A new FSU is a lot cheaper than the power supply so I’ll get on it.
