Question about Audio Players & Recorders
If the normal cancel button is working then take a look at the tone arm trip switch, which probably just needs adjusting. You can test this by flicking it with your finger when a record is playing. If it works it just needs adjusting to trip at the right place on the record.
The trip switch is located behind the fat end of the cobra tone arm on the back side of the arch, so you get to it by taking the machine back door off.

What happens if you lift the tonearm and slowly move it over its travel in toward the label area past the expected point at which it should cycle? There should be a mechanical click as it engages the lift / return cycle. If so, the mechanism works but might be out of adjustment due to wear and tear.
Perhaps cycling the Record Size switch a few times might have a positive effect on the function. There doesn't seem to be a user adjustment for the end of play cycle.

If you decide to venture into the mechanics be cautious, always protect the tonearm from damage and make sure you rotate the platter only clockwise as there are mechanical interlocks that could get damaged if you turn it the wrong way.

Hi Richard, at the base of the tonearm look for a rubber grommet. Under it you will find a screw. Adjust clockwise slightly to make the tonearm lift further along. Fine tune antil sorted. If the adjustment is not at tonearm base remove the rubber platter mat. If the platter has an access hole in it rotate platter so the hole is near the tonearm and look for scew to adjust.
