Decided to play a vinyl only to find the arm not responding to the operation buttons.  Removing the platter i discover there is a white string with a small spring attached idlely laying amongst the other components.  I am assuming this is why there is the lack of movement in the arm.

Any advice as to how to correct or reattach would be greatly appriciated.

There may be a little clip broken on the white plastic tonearm mount that holds the string and spring, a small screw can replace it if it is, a picture of the inside would be helpful

If it does turn out to be that try and locate the tiny piece so it doesn't get lodged in the many cogs, it could cause mayhem when working again

Can you take one of the white plastic piece attached to the bottom of the tonearm, it slides along the stainless steel rod, you may need to remove the 2 screws underneath the deck and hinge it up into service position

I could not see what you referred to but I did see a little white piece of plastic that looked as if it had snapped off from something.
