I have a couple of receivers that are still worth keeping. One seems to have a bad capacitor in one channel that causes the audio to distort and then drop out completely. The other which uses a microprocessor to control the unit locks up and won't allow me to change inputs etc.  Before I ditch them I was wondering if there are folks out there who can take a look and let me know if they are worth fixing and if so, how much.

I don't want to take them to a pro repair - it's not worth that expense.

I think the one with the bad cap is the easier to fix. I am sure it's a bad cap because another friend (no longer in Wellington) fixed it but didn't have the right rated cap so it might have gone out again. Plus it's all analogue so no microprocessors to worry about.

PM me if you can help

Thanks
