Question about Audio Technica Audio Players & Recorders
This isn't a new turntable--I've had it for a little over a year. I haven't used it in a few months, but I just tried to play a record, and the arm won't lower down far enough to touch the record. It seems to be a problem with the little plastic cradle near the base of the needle in the upper right-hand corner of the turntable, it seems to be permanently raised, as if it were going back to the cradle (it doesn't touch the bottom of the cradle either).
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?
Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

See what kind of arm position sensing elements are used in your turntable (micro switches, optics or possibly other) and check if they work correctly - sometimes a microswitch can be damaged or have oxydized internal contacts or a badly soldered / broken wire and it will not function properly, causing the unit to stop automatically, the same might happen if the sensor is of optical type and there is some dust or broken wires or if the emmiter or sensor is damaged. Also, it could be a problem with the part that activates the switch / optics, it might be displaced or damaged.
If all sensors / switches seem to work well, then check the section which has wires going to those sensors / switches, it's the next probable location of the fault (it might be an electronic controller so there could be damage to some components, broken wires, dirty connectors or bad solder contacts).
It could as well be something else in the mechanisms, wiring or electronics, i just suggested a few things that might cause the malfunction you described.
Hope you can get it fixed.

Do one thing adjust counterweight on the back of the arm to 1.5gm or 2gm by rotating the counterweight. It will give some more pressuer on the styles and will avoid the jerking
