I have just salvaged a Pioneer pl-115d and I'm nursing it back to health. While replacing the foam in the suspension, I must have done something wrong as now, the auto return seems to kick in all the time! I've taken the new foam bits out and replaced with the old ones again but still the problem persists. The only thing that stops it is if I hold down the tone arm assembly quite firmly (which is strange because this would not affect any of the mechanisms as they are all attached to this assembly alone).
I suppose this is quite a unique problem but if anyone has had a similar complaint, could you help me please as I'm ready to ditch the auto controls entirely and put a switch on the motor!
