AR wire connections

George, ah makes very good suggestions here.

Upon reading your OP here my initial impression was shorted wire for hum and broken wire for no sound. The good news and bad news is the wiring with the arm is very thin and delicate. With original condition that produces very little distortion on the signal. But with wear damage can easily happen.

So just a guess but arm wire seems your most likely suspect. Check as advised by ah. If that is the problem then rewiring may be your best option. I expect repairing the original AR wire could be very difficult. Cardas wire is highly recommended and available from a few sources.
