If it is basically working, but just has oscillation, then 
it is almost certainly a capacitor issue.
There are likely capacitors in the feedback loop to reduce 
bandwidth, and decoupling capacitors
on the power rails.  It would be fairly easy to track down 
the specific capacitors from the manual and check them.
