Default accuphase 202, low output

I've got an Accuphase E-202 that I inherited that is running a few dbs lower on the right channel. It was mostly dead on the right but a good cleanining of the switches brought it back most of the way. I read online somewhere previously that it is aknown issues with one of the "Triodes?" going out. Anyone got any suggestions?

am I wrong, or the Accuphase 202 is a solid state amp? So, no "triodes" there!
Try to clean again the balance control, it' s quite a common issue with Accuphase amps (had the same problem with my dad' s E-303).

Should be able to track it with a signal gen and a scope, but I'd bet that it's a badly-tracking volume control.
