Broken DBX160... fixable?

Hi, first thread :p

I played the import market gamble recently and picked up 2 DBX 160 XTs for £55 each from Japan. One works fine, the other, i got what i paid for.

The threshold meter is constantly on amber (as if it were in over easy mode), no signal passed through, either in bypass or not (I do hear transformer hum). The output meter is also stuck at -20Db. It doesn’t flicker a bit, even when first turned on.

Is this unit potentially salvageable with a quick resolder, or is it likely written off?
