I find it hard to believe some of these answers. If the platter is wobbling, if you remove the platter, you'll find the spindle the platter rotates on. That will probably be loose. At the bottom of the spindle bearing, you will find a nut. Tighten that, and you should be in business. If you have further questions please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com.

Turntables require a special input in the amp (usually marked PHONO) because they require high gain and different equalization - and yes, that ground wire has to go to ground unless you want to get a super annoying 60Hz hum from it! If your amp doesn't have a phono input, you're going to have to go out and get a phono pre-amp and connect it between the turntable and the amp. Best of luck!
if you have the headshell left with the 4 little wires hanging out then you will need a complete cartridge. turntableneedles dot com/Half-Inch-Standard-Mount_c_49632.html if you have the cartridge part then it's still good and you only require a new needle. Type your cartridge number into the search window at the above website.
Your belt is probably worn and needs replacing. Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps
