check first power supply

Probably something else.
The buzzing is typical of an open circuit input "receiving" radiated 50/60 Hz from nearby mains wiring.
An alternative source of buzzing is the 50/60 Hz mains breaking through into the audio due to failed smoothing and filtering in the power supply.

Capacitors that have been unused for quite a while can lose condition and fail when put into use again and this might have been the cause of the thump/thud/boom you noted.

I doubt it is the cause but it is very unwise to operate an amplifier without a full complement of speakers unless the volume is kept at minimum...

The tape player portion is defective, though new. Many of the site moderators have had that experience.

I believe this is most likely due to incorrect voltages at the display. If you have a meter and are familiar with working on electronics, check the voltage at pin 3 of cn501. It should be -28.5. If the voltage is very low, try changing C123 and C124 in the power supply. If the voltage is ok, check R925 and R932, these are both 10 ohm 1/8th watt.

You would have to open the unit and check for signal right before headphone plug.

It work as a simple twist action. That small, dark plastic part right in the centre will turn, possible with a small flathead screwdriver.

There's no clear all settings there. You need to manually delete each saved station. Try to unplug the power of the unit for few hours and check if that clears all.
