Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX rather as I suspected; a discard.job. But
1) I could only get the stand-by light as an indication of any life. It did not respond to any of the tuning buttons. Yet I couldn't quite shake the feeling that it was on stand by but was not firing up but might with a minimum of attention.
Are you sure you cannot recommend a repair shop/org that might just give it a once over?
2) On the parts angle, assuming not re (1): can you suggest a course of action to find a home for the old thing if it's worth cannibalising due to the shortage of parts? They might be willing to take it away for no charge just to acquire its bits?
3) No vintage value, do you think? (eg prop for plays/shows/TV settings)?
