LK's steps are something I forgot, and they're a good idea. Since you can do the rest from the front panel, there's no particular damage or marks -- the only thing that'll go away is any custom presets/algorithms the original owner put in, and their particular i/o and level configuration.

Difficult to see how software could cause your kind of problem in a 30-year-old box, but you never know.

Opening and looking for bad connections, while you're looking for burnt/bulging components, is also a good idea. Usually a bad connection will result in failure to boot, but if one is dicey and heats up, thermal effects could possibly cause your issue.
