Help - Constant auto return

Recommended Posts

I picked up a Pioneer PL-4 for free and cleaned it up nice. It turns/changes speeds well, light doesn’t flicker, but the one problem it does have is that the tone arm constantly auto returns when I try to move it at all.

I tried spinning the platter to reset it as I read to try that but no luck. So I took the whole thing apart but I can’t get the whole top off, the wires are connecting the base to the top half. 

Any suggestions on how to fix the auto return issue? Or even how to just get it into full manual mode?
