Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Carrera LT-120 Turntable that is working, but it is not dropping the needle at the right place ( at start and all other tracks )
I have the service manual for the LT-120 which explains how to do that. There are explanations with diagrams, etc. that won't help without your being able to see them.

Not sure what your question is? Linear tracking turntables also have an assortment of gears and pulleys which make it function correctly. Sometimes the drive belt will break, other times, the gears will crack. You will have to open her up, and take a look inside to see if there are any components which are damaged. There may also be grease applied to the gears, which might also be preventing it from moving properly.

I think it's kind of cheap to ask someone to pay $10 for an answer to one question. Sheesh!
I haven't gotten the answer yet, but a local stereo store pointed me in the right direction. Thanks anyway.

The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?
Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

Make a note of the tracking force setting.
Make sure the turntable is level.
Unplug the power to the turntable.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Set the Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting to 0.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.
