The cueing lever does not lift the tone arm. Possible trouble is with the oil damper. Parts seem to be near impossible to find. Can this item be fixed by taking oil damper apart and putting in either new seals or more oil?
what grade of silicone oil would this use and where to find it?

Assuming it does not need repair, you should be able to slide cueing lever to the right (raising arm), then place over the record and the platter should start turning. Just slide cueing to left and needle should gently drop on the record. Just press stop button to return the arm and platter should stop/turn off.
Every answer here is wrong. Just plain wrong. It's electronic cueing via solenoid control. There are no cams. levers, or any sort of automation, except for the auto lift on the lead out grove. Voltages to the solenoid must be checked. Capacitors that frequently go on these models must also be checked. If you can live without cueing, disconnect the cueing cable (much like a bicycle brake cable) and your cueing will set to off until you can sort it out.
There's a rubber belt or O ring that broke. I couldn't find one at Technics, so I took the old parts to the hardware store and found an O ring in plumbing parts that was very close. Been working for years just fine!
I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.
under the tone arm next to the lever ther is a sort of plastic bar which lifts the tone arm when lever is up right, look along that bar and there is a screw which you turn as you would to tighten anything.you will see the bar move down,try again and if you still have the same problem repeat the process till done......
