Hi,

Very probably yes. It needs taking apart and diagnosing. This does
not to be complicated ... at first. Look for broken belts at first.

As you can see it does get complicated if its the electronics.

/Sreten.

edit : having perused the troubleshooting guide and now the
service manual there are no belts, it is complicated if its more
than a switch contact failure, which is a common failure with use.

Does a button press fail, or does it not complete a procedure ?

Try stripping the front panel and cleaning the all the momentary
switch sections on the board, sometimes the contacts also.
It used to work with my dodgy TV remote control.

Welcome to VE....., :)

Yes, there is a belt, drive cord and tonearm motor which moves the tonearm into the correct position based on what size vinyl is placed on the platter.

Download the operation, troubleshooting and service manuals from the link provided.

Refer to pages 19, 20, 27 and 30 of the service manul for an illustration of the tonearm drive system, an exploded view and the actual drive belt part, It 9, "Belt, Take-Up"

Hopefully, the belt is all that is needed to restore proper operation of the Sony.

Good luck.

Hi,

Sorry yes there is, that is the problem with perusing online rather than
the paper document, it is easy to miss stuff. There is also some stringing.

There is a tension adjust screw on the back left corner. The cable might just have gotten a little lose.
