Hi Chris

Possibly the capacitors in the front end needs replacement. (most likely all of them) . This is importanr on an older set, as these, and all caps will eventually fail. some resistors may have increased in value, and are now out of acceptable tolerance range. Although, in regards to the Electrolyticc Caps, if there is no loud or annoying Hum when the Phono is playing, these Capacitors may still be hanging in there. It is also posible that some critter has been chewing on the wiring?? Has it been stored in a shed or in a cold damp garage. This could lead to all the above problems. As to cost of repairs, only you know, how much, is enough. And also, on the main page of this site, click on the link, in Red.”What’s my old radio worth” A lot of factors mus be considered when trying to answer this question.
