Are MicroKorgs easy to repair? Virtual Instrument Plugins

Are MicroKorgs easy to repair?

The little jack where you connect the power supply is loose. Whenever I connect the power adapter and try to turn it on the synth doesn't turn on. If I give the jack a little wiggle it turns on and off. Sometimes I can manage to turn it on and have it stay on, but if I move it just a little bit it turns off again.

Also, the volume knob doesn't work correctly. When I turn the knob past halfway I lose all sound. If I wiggle the knob the sound transfers from both stereo channels but if I let go I lose the sound again.

Would these problems require getting new parts or is can I just take it to an electronics repair shop and have them rewire some resistor and capacitors and stuff.

Shouldn't be any capacitors needing replacing for either of those situations. I think any electronics repairman could replace the power supply jack and clean the volume control. Shouldn't cost more than $50.
