Hi: I have a used PL 70 turntable and it turns but will not move the pickup arm to the record. Any ideas please!!!!

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

It is a PL L70 direct drive....friend gave it to me, so I don't know how old it is

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I just tried it and no troubleshooting yet

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

I guess not...thanks for your help
