Default Help Sony TA-1055 goes ffttzz ftz crack CRACK!

I bought this Sony TA-1055 (about 40 years old I think) recently and it has been sitting between a Lenco turntable and a pair of Spendor BC1s. Sounding very nice. Unfortunately it went ffttzz ftz crack CRACK. Turned the volume to zero but this made no difference. Turned it off as quickly as I could to avoid damaging the speakers. Can anybody tell me what this might be? Could this be a home repair for me? I can solder competently but I'm no electronics expert. If it is something like replacing capacitors, I could do that. I like this amp and would like to keep it (no money for another anyway!).

Any help welcome.

You have problem between volume to speaker no pun intended. You can start to recap the small electrolytic caps ( not big filter caps) between volume to speaker to see if it addresses problem then you can do rest.
