Question about Stanton Audio Players & Recorders
The tone arm sits in its rectangular support and I have pushed it in at least partially. The rectangular support appears to have on the top and the left side (facing the turntable) something like a screw but the left side is blocked by the vertical support arm. It looks as if this left something is a screw as there is visible some pointed item against which the left side projection from the tonearm may have a receptacle.

1) This turntable either has bad RCA cables or a faulty tonearm - in either case, none are easy fixes. FYI, If you use Ortofon Concorde series, they are notorious for causing faulty connections with your tonearm, and eventually deteriorate your tonearm over time. So you might want to think about changing them if you get a new tonearm put on. If you use the Technics headshell, you are fine. 2) This turntable definitely needs to have the tonearm replaced. Once the arm comes loose from it's bearings, it's next to impossible to get it back to factory specs, and you will have skipping issues. Both will require professional servicing.

SOURCE: Tone Arm
It's very hard to get those screws aligned and tightened correctly. They are machine calibrated with the precise amount of torque. Once they become loose, it's very hard to get them back to original factory settings. Also, those screws are conical screws, which means they have a cone shaped tip on them. That cone shaped section sits on 4 very small ball bearings which balance the tonearm. There is a very thin piece of sheet metal which protects the ball bearings and keeps them aligned, if any of these parts are damaged, or bent in any way, your tonearm is damaged.
Unfortunately, if you can't get the balance correct, you will have to replace the tonearm. You can buy a new TONEARM HERE, however, replacing it, is a whole other process and not recommended if you have no soldering experience, as you could damage your unit even more.
Hope this helps.

on page 8 of the above service manual for your model it shows 4 electrical switches that tell the computer what 'state' the mechanism is in at any given time. Either one or more of the switches are intermittant or the mechanism has dried up grease that is slowing down the operation and basically gumming up the works. the old grease would have to be removed and replaced when it is causing binding. The switch just to the right of where is says "microswitch ksf-023" is an 'open air' type and so would be the most likely suspect. it simply needs to be cleaned with a super fine file designed only for cleaning switch contacts. THIS SERVICE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL ONLY!!!!!

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.
Unplug the power to the turntable.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Set the Direct Readout Stylus Pressure to 0.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Direct Readout Stylus Pressure control. Play records.

It apears the lead wiring contact arrangement is typically generic. Green over Red and Blue over white. I searched Google by images and found the wiring arrangement in a detailed photograph of a Denon headpiece with cartridge installed.
So always remember to draw a diagram before disassembling something.
