problem with NAD 3020e - fixable?

Hello all.

Many yrs ago I was given a NAD 3020e amp which i believe was What HiFi Amp of the Year in 1988. Recently when i hooked it up i noticed that in stereo mode, the right channel doesn't work (minimal sound from right speaker, even if balance swung fully to right), but if i hit the Mono button, both speakers work fine / equally. Is this a simple / fixable problem?

If not I need a new amp to partner with KEF Coda 7s (also old but good i think) - looking for a warm sound with good bass - any suggestions? Some receiver recommendations also appreciated - might be worth future-proofing with a receiver that will do basic Home Cinema stuff but with good audio performance (as would mostly be used for music). Budget for this would be < £250.

Same with all source inputs? Could just be an input that's gone wonky, or the input selector, in which case just use another input. If not, could prove pricey to fix. The NAD C315BEE would be a suitable replacement.
