Most likely location for a problem is where the antenna "F" connector is soldered to the board (inside the little, metal, "match-box size" RF tuner) or where the tuner solders to the main board.
It takes a little bit of effort to get it all apart, but it's not that hard.
A good tech can fix it. You might also see if a trade school, or high school, has an electronics class, where they'd open it up and re-solder it for you, as a "show-and-tell" of what's inside the box for their students.
