Received a 5 in 1 turntable system with 3 speed turntable

Customer Question

Received a 5 in 1 turntable system with 3 speed turntable and auto stop as a gift. Model CD684a-BLS. The tone arm does not finish playing the 33 1/3 records. It stops about three fourths of the way and shuts down. Is there something I can do to fix this problem so that the whole records plays all the way through?

Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, have you considered / tried removing completely the transport screw ?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No, will try this. Thought about it but didn't want to break it. It is also the largest of records which I believe are the 78 size records not the 33 1/3 as previously stated. That was my mistake.

Yes please but do not force it out if it would be too hard to extract/completely pull out.
