I don't know about the 757, but many radios have two knobs on one shaft.
If the IF SHIFT is not used as often, it may be the ring knob back against
the front panel rather than one of the main knobs.  Those often get
"fat-fingered" when the operator is adjusting the main knob.

When in doubt, see if you can get a local ham to come over and listen
to the signal - it certainly sounds like there is a bad adjustment somewhere
that has shifted the receive passband somehow, though I've had the same
thing happen when the BFO is out of alignment.

ok I know which knobs you are refering to on the 757 they are the shift/notch knobs they have some effect but very little as in not enough to straighten it up

I did have a local guy come listen to it and they said it sounded off to them as well but  that was the extent they could figure out.

So I am looking up adjustment now.
as the gentleman I had bought it from was suppose to drop by and have a look but never showed.
