It’s a can of worms.
There’s a possibility you’d see a burned component or bulging cap in the power supply area (near the transformer), but I don’t think that’ll be the case since the unit runs when cold.
I didn’t realize this was a pre-sale inspection. If you don’t know electronics yourself, or the seller is willing to let a tech go through it before you commit, consider it a total unknown. Might be an easy fix (by a tech), might be something expensive or take a lot of shop time.
