Stylus Arm Wobble

Postby elektrizitat » Wed Sep 14, 2011 8:48 am

Morning all,

I'm new here but have been aware of the vintage knob for a while now. I have a problem with a Sony PS-5520 turntable I'd be very appreciative for some advice regarding. Basically, as the needle moves it's way across a record on this PS-5520 and once it reaches near the end, the whole arm begins to wobble. It's only the last minute or so of the record. The issue does not occur anywhere else on the turntable. The anti-skating weight is unattached because the thin wire has snapped. It is simply this not being attached causing the problem would you think?

Any advice would be brill!

Wobble ?
Wobbling which prevents reading the groove ? Or just a visual trouble which doesn't affect output ?

An anti-skating issue would be gradual but it wouldn't hurt trying with the mechanism fully in place...

Also, the auto-return system might have something engaged earlier than it should, thus fiddling with the arm's base...
