Question about Teac P-A688 Turntable

1 Answer

Arm trouble I just took my Teac P-A688 out of storage for most of a year, and I'm having some issues. Firstly, it doesn't have a belt. I'm definitely getting a new one. But apart from that, the arm isn't lowering when I try to get it to do that. How to I fix this? Does it have to do with not having a belt?

If its automatic unit, it need belt to complete its mechanical cycle of loading and unloading its arm. You can check arm movement by spinning its table by hand.

Need a new belt


Measure the old belt, make certain you know how it fits before removing. You need the diameter and width in MM. You don't need to be spot on with these! Put the results with the words "Turntable belt XXmm by XXmm" into Google.

My teac p-595 turntable has a grounding wire that is looped at one end but I don't know where the loop goes. The wire on the other end is fastened to the receiver.


The ground wire should be attached to the metal chassis or the tone arm metal assembly, the other end should be attached to the metal chassis of the amplifier. If the ground wire is not used, you will get real loud hum through the amplifier.

Teac P-988 Everything sounds slow/warped


not passing the "wow and flutter" specs, eh?
The most common cause of this is a loose or defective belt. An inferior belt will have varying thicknesses along it's length. When it hits a skinny part, it will slow slightly. When it hits the thick part, it will speed slightly. Overall effect is that the record sounds warped.
needledoctor.com has got some good stuff.

Teac turntable belt came off.. help!


Through the 2 holes on the platter, lift the platter up. Take the belt, flip the platter over, and stretch it around the center ring. Flip the platter back over and turn to so one of the holes is over the spinning motor. With your finger or with a blackstick, stretch it back onto the motor head.

Also check the belt for wear....that should do it.

Keep me posted.
