Hi Brian, Would love to help

Hi Brian,

Would love to help but your problem is not as simple as 'which transistors and caps need to be replaced?'
These decks have quite a few transistors and caps in them, could be any one or a number of them - and replacing them all is not an option.
As it stands, it may not even be a transistor or cap that's causing the problem. Some machines can give the same symptoms with a record/play switch which needs some cleaning (this switch is inside the machine).
You really need to get a tech to have a look at it. Anyone competent on analog audio will sort it quite quickly.
