Please see this circuit diagram attached. The input voltage on pin 9 is from a variable power supply. It does not matter what voltage is applied to pin 9, with a 500mA load, the input current will rise to about 1.5A and more, within 20 to 30sec. before I manually terminate the input voltage. The chip temperature is about 80deg C. What must I look for to fix this problem?
