SOURCE: Early tone arm pickup
On some record players there is an adjusting screw at the back of the tone arm that adjusts the tone arm drop in location but I don't think it will adjust the pick up point. That is controled by a steel rod under the record player deck that moves over and pushes a little trip lever near the center of the platter so that a gear is engauged and the end of record cycle is started. I'm not sure but you may be able to find an adjustment under the deck that is near the rotation point of the tone arm that will adjust that rod so that it will pickup later. Hope this helps some.

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.

It would appear you have a problem with the "Cuing mechanism" this is quite a common problem. This link below will assist you to understand about it.
What you need to do is locate a service manual for your exact make and model, in there you will find the necessary troubleshooting steps to take to isolate and cure your issue. However I have had a look and have been unable to locate any, perhaps a direct approach to the manufacturer may yield one?
It can often simply be a faulty switch, the "Mode Switch" this is simply replaced, however to obtain this one ,must have the parts number, the ONLY place this is available is in a service manual. Sometimes it is the belt or drive? it is usually something quite simple, often it's obvious once the TT is disassembled.
should you not wish to DIY, simply find a competent Turntable repair place and ask first for a "Quote" once appraised of the costings etc, then go from there.
below is a link for the user manual...
Above are a couple of sites that may help you if you wish to DIY?
