Hey all,
My 11-104 has been going great for ages but suddenly I am not getting any sound from the record.
I turned the sound right up and got some music and fiddled with the stylus but no luck.
Could the stylus be gone?
Or some sort of wiring problem?
Where do you get good stlii from?

If gently 'pricking' the stylus generates no sound, then try the next step.

(Carefully) remove the connectors from the cartridge and touch each of the hot leads (typically red & white), with the volume mid way you should hear a loud hum. If that's the case, then the signal is being lost in the cartridge. If not, then there's a problem between the cartridge and the amplifier.

I think the original turntable is Garrard 1025.

Here's one source of stylus: https://www.soundring.com.au/soundring-d442sr-2-dual-stereo-ceramic-stylus/
