Default Fidelity HF37

Hi everyone

I’ve been given a Fidelty record player which sadly wouldn’t play a record as the arm just seems to slide across the record. When I had a closer look at the arm, the screw in the top was loose and a small spring fell out of somewhere. The two seem to be connected as the screw just wobbles about if I put it back in the hole, but I can’t see where the spring goes.

Can anyone help please? I’ve also damaged the spring trying to wedge it where it clearly doesn’t want to go ?

I am completely new to record players so don’t even know what all the different parts are called so apologies in advance.
I would so grateful for any hell or advice you can give

Hi and welcome to the forum!
I think we'll need you to post up some really clear and in focus pics , anything taken too far away or fuzzy won't help. Hope you've got a decent camera phone. You can only upload so many on one reply, but add replies as needed. You got any experience working on electro/mechanical stuff...also, have you got
a multimeter and some handy small tools.
Here's a YouTube video of someone refurbing a HF35 to give you some idea of the possible challenge.
