X files apart (wich includes the classical "User error. Please replace user and press any key" (excuse me for the old joke), the 41 trouble-shooting is usually a question of:
a) Chemical (Corrosion -visible or not-)
b) Mechanical (Case tightness)
c) Electrical (Cap's, Transistors, IC's...)
a) and b) beeing the *winners* for a huge score. Symptoms you've described are more likely to be also on their count.
In the c) case Fullnuts still have some chances for minor repairments, while Halfnuts are mostly "unserviceable".
So my advice should be:
Take your 41 apart, clean thoroughly every contact area you see (Iso-Propyl Alcohol, diluted venegar, etc.) Make sure the plastic poles where screws fit are in good shape, without cracks and every hole have a good thread for the screws to thighten properly, fix them if needed.
Once you've cleaned and checked/fixed the above, chances are you get a nice working 41 after reassembling.
Hope this help in anyway.
P.S.: O.K. I'll tell my "coleagues" to stop "circling" in your backyard. ;-)
