Check the bypass contacts on the effects loop jack. If I recall that one has a single TRS jack for the loop. Take a spare TRS plug and wire the tip to the ring. Plug that into the jack. If sound is restored, the jack is the problem.  
 
Ive worked on a few of these as well and seen that exact same problem and the FX jack was the culpret in both cases. Enzos advice is is right on the money :)  
 
I buy CRC contact cleaner (quick drying formula no#02130)  
from Home Depot for cleaning these jacks and it works well and will NOT melt plastic too.
