If this thing is, what it sounds like it is....

I would try your question in the "Home Theater" forum.....down towards the bottom of the main page.

Sorry I can't be more help...as I said, I'm not even SURE it has anything to do with "home theater"...just guessing by the name.

Probably a bad capacitor or tuner. You can try taking it to a repair shop, but be ready to shell out some $$$$.

Will other inputs work and is there any static when the tuner is on?

Most likely a bad chip, not capacitor, since today's receivers are all digital for the tuners and such.

That would mean that either the speakers are not working, or that the tuner chip is blown, and now you have just a amp without a am/fm tuner. Btw, that is what you call an antique. http://vintagereceiver.net/rare-sony...s-receiver-exc Not even worth repairing.
