If you can't clean the pots or if you just want to try replacing them, try using
500k pots again, in case one or both of the pots is worn or dirty or
defective. If that doesn't work, and cleaning or replacing the
switches doesn't work, then the problem is probably elsewhere.
You could put a 500k resistor (with a sufficiently-high power rating of at least half the power rating (Watts) of the pot) in parallel with the pot, or, to cover all bases, put a 500k resistor from each of the two outer lugs of the pot to the middle lug. That should change it into the equivalent of a 250k pot. You could even just temporarily clip the resistors on, with alligator-clip leads, if you're very careful, just to test it.

chances are that the contacts in the pick up switch and or volume / tone controls have got dirty over time and are not making good contacts.
The 3 position toggle switches in most budget Les Paul copies are prone to failure - only making contact on one position as the springs get weaker - you could try unscrewing the back plate and examining what is happening in the switch.
Try rotating the volume and tone knobs vigourously to and fro - if this produces a crackling sound the contacts are dirty - further rotation will clean them a bit but a little squirt of switch cleaning spray will help too.
Other than that it could be dry solder joints anywhere on the back of the switches and knobs or poor contact inside the jack socket
