1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

Once you find the fuse just take it out and go to your local electrical parts shop. Your looking for the type that sells transistors etc. They should sell you one.

I bought an Audio Technica USB AT LP 120 Turntable last June. It worked fine as a turntable, but I was never able to get good recordings of vinyl without distortion. But now I have another problem: when...


Sorry it could be the cartridge! They can fail at anytime, only the stylus will wear with time. However it could be the amplifer's magnetic cartridge pre-amp. If you look inside your amp and trace back from the phono socket you should find the pre-amp. If it is distorting on both channels it's probably an IC that has failed.

Belt came off when I moved it, just need to know how to put it back on. I know that it should be on the golden spinning part, how else is it placed?


Hi put the belt on the platter first, remove the rubber cover and then place the platter back on. There should be a hole through the platter where you can grab it, then stretch it to go over the motor spindle. Hope that helps

My audio-technica PL50 plays 45s at the wrong speed.


believe it or not not it probably doesn`t even play your lp`s at the right speed? Its probably because your drive belt has actually stretched? rubber belts do wear and maybe seek out a replacement drive belt?

try this company?

Connect turntable

I am pretty sure that model is NOT "USB" so you would need to hook it up through a preamp as shown in the drawing at above link.
then goto downloads.com and do a search for "cd lp" without the quote marks and you will find a lot of free software to load in the computer in order to record the LP's as they play into the sound card.

hope that gets you started...
