RCA SelectaVision...anyone familar with these things?

I saw one at a flea market yesterday along with Superman and On Golden Pond. I'd never really seen one before, but the idea of a grooved videodisc format interested me, and since it was cheap I decided to buy it. Sadly though, it doesn't appear to be working. The disc spins and the arm moves, but I'm not getting any picture or audio. I read online that this could be caused by the stylus cartridge needing to be replaced. I took out the cartridge and looked at it, but I couldn't really tell anything about it from looking. Is there anyway you can tell visually whether the stylus cartridge is no good?
