I adjusted it back to 5.05v on the pot as defined in the manual, and there it stayed steady, but it didn't seem to help.  Before I adjusted the pot, it was fluctuating.

Given the age of the unit, its not surprising that the potentiometers are a noisy, have drifted/aged and/or are contaminated with crud. 

SYSTEM Reset L should be High.  If Not then Check for 1.1V on THR.
