Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable
If we push down on it, there is resistance; it seems locked in the up position.
Have you left the tone arm lift in the up position?
If not: At the end of a record the mechanism lifts the tone arm, returns it to the rest, lowers it and switches off the motor.
It the motor has stopped too early, the tone arm will remain raised.
You can try gently rotating the platter clockwise by hand. This may allow the return cycle to finish.

Although you may have mechanical problems, you may also have hardened damping fluid to control the cuing. The unit will have to be dismantled, the old fluid cleaned off and re-damped again. The is a specific fluid that you will likely find not apply correctly. If you'd like more advice, or like to inquire about a repair, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.
