The turntable is gone from the kitchen table. I traced the problem past the large cabling into the delicate angel-hair wiring of the tone-arm. This is not a job that I have the patience to do for a possible success on a turntable that I can buy used for a hundred bucks. I pull the cartridge, which paradoxically is worth nearly that and carry the mess out to the dumper. The table can now be cleaned off. This is the second item of questionable value I have purged from my obsessive collection of audio treasures this week. Iím doing well.
