What sort of noise? Steady state white noise? Crackly irregular noise? Hard to believe he can’t trace it; at some point it is there and before that point it isn’t. Is it in playback, source monitor, or both? If on playback, it could be the source/tape switches, that happens on my Sony 4 track sometimes.

I think - not sure - that a deck of that vintage can have compoments replaced on all the boards individually; not needing complete board replacement… and there are units on ebay for $149 to 600 which you could get as a parts donor…

Best luck!
