Pioneer SX-950 relay clicks on/off and no sound

Pioneer Audio - AudioKarma.org Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - www.audiokarma.org
Hello, I have a 950 with Issues, I am a Pioneer Nut since high school, and bought my first sx-950 new and have been hooked since.

This unit is very dusty inside and all knobs seem a bit tight, when I power the 950 on the relay clicks in about 10-15 seconds, and I will try fm or a cd

Then after a few seconds the relay starts clicking on/off and sound starts fizzling and pops to no sound at all Immediatly. and the lights flickered on the reciever once yesterday when this happened. I only had one channel of sound at all i think

When this happened. I bought this this way so i have no history on unit.

The large caps show no swell to them if this helps. I never had it powered on more then 2-3 minutes at any time, afraid of doing more damage. I will at least blow the dust out and deoxit the pots/switches thats about my skill level here. can dirty pots/switches cause the relay to act this way????

I would appreciate any direction. I also live around Bensenville Il, and if anyone knows a trusty tech for repoair I would also be greatful

Thanks and appreciate any input.
