Repairs Needed to Kenwood A97 amp & DP-M87 cd player


Novice Member
Hi Folks, anyone you can recommended to help me with repair to these items please?
Kenwood amp A97 ....

1. only the faintest of output can be heard along with a high pitch tone as volume increases....
Symptoms are exactly the same from the headphone jack.
2...the input selector on front slightly temperamental but works with a gentle push... no problem with selection via remote, so maybe just dirty behind selector? Not too worried about this.

Kenwood CD player DP-M87.... no clue.... I bought it second hand, doesn’t look as if it’s been messed with.... powers on and display fine, but the door won’t open to load disc.
Test mode wasn’t helpful, failed at the 4th step.

The Kenwood items are spares for my A97 system which I’ve owned since new, so no rush for return and not life changing... but you know how much they mean to us all !

Looking for advice and hopefully repair please.
