Re: to know about radioshack
Most of the generic electronic components are simply purchased by RS and packaged to sell in their stores. In the last few years, there have been more items 'custom manufactured for radio shack' that you won't see elsewhere. I don't believe Radio Shack manufactures them. The items are produced by manufacturers who are capable of supplying whatever is needed.
For a more definitive answer, you should contact Radio Shack.

It looks like a cap, there should be markings on it, you may need a magnifying glass to read it. Best bet to find a new one will probably be e-bay, unless you can find an actual electronics part house. Radioshack has decreased their components sections, so they will only have standard values available. I am going to assume this was on a circuit board, so you will need to solder it in place.
If you mean old as in 60's old then its likey that it's a Teisco. Teisco was a Japanese company that made student guitars under countless brand names. You can find them all over the place in all kinds of funky shapes, colors, etc...
Go on eBay and look up Teisco and see if you can find one similar to yours.
You could go with a type of passive crossover, and that should allow you to also control gain as well as the bass input, and you can also go with a low pass filter as well. These are quite inexpensive at Wal-Mart and other places, and just run in-line with the wiring. There is no real cutomizability with the latter option, but it could be a means to get better sound while you save for a stronger crossover.
Check your fuses and see if they are blown. Check your in line fuse to your battery also. If this is not it try putting the amplifier in someone's existing and working system to see if it is your wiring. If this is the case redo try redoing your wire. If this does not work then you will need to send it in to the company that manufactures it for help. Please let me know if these work.
It sounds like you have some broken solder connections on the power terminal. if you know how to solder and are good at taking things apart and putting them back together you can fix it pretty easy.
Car amps are not always very easy to take apart if you have never done it before.
Radioshack guys don't know much at all about real repair work, but they can help find a part you might need.
This can probably be fixed at a repair shop for $60 to $80 depending on the shops rates.
You know one thing for sure, the amp will work if you hold the terminal down. If it was an electrical problem that needed some real troubleshooting done, holding your finger on the power terminal would not make it start working again. This has to be a bad connection inside the amp.
Feel free to ask for more help again if you need it, and if this was helpful to you a good rating would be appreciated. Thanks
