Default Sharp SG-500E restoration Cambridgeshire

We have just retrieved my wifeís aged Sharp SG-500E from her parents. It has sat in a spare room for well over 30 years and we were surprised that it even turned on after all that time. However, whilst everything seems to light up the volume will not adjust (currently very loud!) and the deck drive is erratic making her David Cassidy album sound worse than I remember. The needle is bent too. I havenít tried the cassette deck but I guess the belt would need replacing as well?

I do not know anything about circuits or electrics but wondered if there was anybody on here that might be interested in making the necessary repairs to it. I realise that it is probably not cost effective but thought I would ask in any event. Any advice is welcome.
