Physically Inspection and partial cleaning
Device is disassembled into half a dozen parts to investigate the internals. Several parts of the disassembly are cleaned using a rag shirt as to not scratch or damage to soft metals. Overall the device is decent conditions as there are no visible signs of corrosion. If any corrosion in is on the top surface of trimmer resistors as is quite common in this line of Philips devices. Most electrolytic capacitors have a rubber gasket at the bottom which shows visible signs of wear. It is unclear if this wear is due to leaking, this is something that must be thoroughly investigated before power up.
