Hey Guys,

I am removing the record player from my console player and I'm kinda stumped on how to remove this "plug". I figured it is just stuck, however, I wanted to make sure that I can remove it from the amp by pulling on it. If I can't, ill just snip the cables. I tried searching online, however, everyone seems to have a plug underneath the record player that easily gets removed... guess mine didn't make the cut.

IMHO that is a plug. Try spraying some Deoxit or similar stuff on it and let it soak...then try getting it out. Maybe even hit it with a hair dryer (not heat gun) around the metal chassis area near it.

It should pull out easily, but could be stuck. If someone in the past had issues with bad connections, there is a remote possibility they might have soldered the pins into place permanently from the bottom side. I'd start by spraying it, then use a very thin blade between the plug and the metal chassis to slightly lift it up one side at a time.
