The solder joints around the PLL circuits are not generally to blame.
It is within the little tin can which actually holds the crystal. I
had 2 940s, and both developed the same problem.

The solution is to melt the wax out of the can, resolder the
connections inside, and that should fix it. Milt Lord, the Radio
Doctor did both of mine, and as I recall, didn't refill the cans with
wax or whatever melted out.

Hope this helps.
