Hi,first of all I had this turntable for around 17 years,very well taken care of. Turntable always worked fine. I stored it away in it's box for 3 years,while we finish our house. And now the other day,I took it back out and connected it to my Stereo ,it powers up,but no turntable movement.Nothing is binding up, it's a direct drive turntable so no belt issues,any ideas what might be wrong? I checked all the obvious everything is o.k.

most platters are secured with a c clip in the middle --gently prying it off should allow the platter to be removed--than a little dexterity is required to reattach the belt to the pulley and around the bottom of the platter--if the belt is broken or stretched you can pursue a replacement at mcm electronics .com
Check for grease on the platter or anywhere in the mechanism. Sometimes somebody has messed around with the speed preset, there might be two. You could try adjusting them. Sometimes they are found on the underside of the turntable, covered up, or they will be on the PC board of the deck.
If the belt is installed correctly (around the center ring on the underside of the metal platter & around the motor post), try adjusting the SW screw on the underside of the unit that apparently fine-tune adjusts speed. It fixed the speed on my turntable - more info/instructions on it are posted under Mocamom1's question & solutions regarding PS-LX250H speed adjustment.
Have you tried swopping over the output leads from the turntable to the amp (normally one red and one white phono plug) so they are in each others socket? If you do this and you still get no sound from the right channel it is almost certain to be a faulty amp,or speaker. If you swop and get no sound from the LEFT channel it is could be either a faulty lead or cartridge.
Usually, for most turntables, the belt goes on the bottom of the
platter first. Then you put the platter back on the turntable. From
here you should see an opening on the platter where you can 'grab' the
belt. Pinch the belt, and then wrap it around the rotating motor's
shaft. This is usually at the top left side - around the 10 o'clock
