First Post. Long story short: Bought a Philco 49-1602 and a box of 78's from a guy, I'll probably keep it because I like the way it looks (and if I can get it to play some of these 78's even better). Trying to remove the tone arm so I can replace the needle. Can someone walk me through that? Or is it even necessary to remove the tone arm to replace the needle (cartridge)? For the life of me I can't figure it out.
If photos are needed I can provide those later.

Also, just bought a Philco 80B at an auction. Going to clean it up and see what it looks like.

Thanks in advance!

please post pics and we can go from there.

that being said, the cartridge is more than likely completely dead.

I'm pretty sure the cartridge is dead. Here's some pictures, hopefully someone can offer some advice on how to remove the tone arm (or remove the cartridge). Pictures aren't the best, but do give a general idea. The picture of the phonograph from the top (showing the tone arm) shows two tiny screws on top of the tone arm. I have not figured out what they do; do they hold the cartridge in? They don't seem to want to screw out.
Anyway, looking for advice.
And full stop. Can't get photos to upload.

The two screws on the top are what hold the cartridge. There are tiny captive nuts on the underside of the cartridge that may need to be held while unscrewing. You do not need to remove the tonearm.

THANK YOU!
That's what I need to hear. Now I can put the phonograph back in the cabinet (after I replace the cartridge and clean it up a bit).

I finally got the cartridge removed (which was a pain, thanks to those tiny nuts that seemed to be glued (?) to the screws)....now I need to find a new cartridge. Anybody have a source? The cartridge has 5-48 stamped in red on the inner (further from the LP) side and P30S/35-2671 stamped on the other side. Will probably need new screws and nuts as well.

Any thoughts/suggestions?
