Therefore the fault must lie between the tuner and amplifier sections. Electrolytic capacitors are the components most likely to fail. They look like little plastic cans stood on end in the circuit board. The exact value for a replacement is generally not critical (+ or - 20%) just so long as it physically fits and the voltage rating matches or exceeds the original.
Thank you so much for the help, I will do some investigation.
