...it could be something as simple as a dirty contact with the selector or tape monitor switches. I'd hit all the controls with DeOxit and see if that fixes the problem. Can you hear the relay click a couple of seconds after the receiver's turned on? If not, it could be a bad relay switch or a burned out output stage. The electrolytic capacitors in the older receivers tend to dry out and need replacement, especially on the power supply board.
You could try posting on Audiokarma.org. Very knowledgeable folks over there, especially Catrafter and Echo Wars. They should be able to steer you in the right direction. Fortunately the older receivers had discrete components that makes repairs fairly straight forward.
