I have an AIWA turntable, model PX-E850U.

It needs a stylus. On the label, it says "Replacement Stylus AN-11".

I'm sure I can locate a replacement stylus, but how the heck does it
come off? This has me very puzzled.

The good turntables I had over the years always had a removable head,
and the cartridge was held in place with tiny screws.

I see no way to remove this head, and there are no screws for the
cartridge. I know some of the stylus had a plastic piece that slid into
the cartridge. This looks like it might work that way, but it did not
pull off using light pressure. I know better than to force things, until
I know exactly how to remove it.

To make matters worse, I cant lift the tone arm more than an inch or so,
so I cant really get a good look under it.

Anyone know how to remove this stylus?

Thanks

**Easy-peasy. The cartridge fitted is a standard Audio Technica type.
You will probably find a you-tube instructions somewhere, but the stylus
does not pull out like most. It kinda pivots at the rear and 'clicks'
into place at the front. You just need to pull down on the stylus and it
will come out easily.

Interesting to see this. though my turntable is a JVC, after 20 years in
storage I just put it back in service yesterday.
