This boom box won't play!?
if a boom box is turned up on full volume and doesn't play, is it ready to discard or can it be repaired? From what I heard, the volume can be turned up all the way and there won't be any sound. If it were up to me, I'd have taken it to recycling long ago, but that isn't my decision to make. I'm just allowed to ask if anything can be done. Thank you!

It all depends how much is it worth and how old is it. If it is over 5 years old and you paid less than $70. Don't bother. Not worth it.

A bench diagnosis will probably cost $60 which may or may not be applied to the repair.

Unfortunately, all you are saying is, in effect, "It does not work".
There is no way of knowing what is wrong from that. It could be something trivial like a fuse or bad connection, or part of it could have burned out that is difficult to replace.
The only way to know what the problem is, is if someone who routinely repairs electronics has a look at it to determine the fault.

The reason why it doesn't work cranked all the way up
is that Nothing Is Ever Supposed To Be Treated That Way.
The highest volume setting that is reasonable for any system
is about 60 to 70% of the maximum possible.
There are technical reasons for providing more than adequate gain,
but I'm not going to explain it every time this kind of question comes up.
