Sharp VZ-2500 repair

Hello I have a SHARP VZ-2500 system that needs work doing to it;  such as new turntable belt, cassette heads replacing, bulbs etc... Is there anyone who's a specialist with these on this site who could help the audio repairers once they begin work on it? Many Thanks.

Motor speed needs to be regulated by PWM. Reducing the current (with a resistor) actually lowers the torque - which, with a given load, does result in reduced speed - however, different length tapes (60min vs 90min), as well as different quality, and even current position in the tape, will change the load and hence the speed. You need to regulate the speed via PWM. It's sometimes done on a small board built into the motor, in which case you'd have a round hole into which you could insert an INSULATED screwdriver (tiny flathead wrapped most of the way in electrical tape works). It may be done on the main board, in which case you could find a pot conveniently labeled "motor speed", or perhaps "pulse width" or "pwm" or something to that effect. Find it, mark its current position just in case, and turn it to see if it gets the effect you're after. And there are some tape decks in the world with no speed adjust - they are designed with a specific speed motor and the sizes of the wheels and gears are calculated for that speed. Also there may be a mechanical fault/malfunction causing the speed problem. An initial check and thorough cleaning of the capstan and pinch roller should be done. If there is a buildup of tape oxide or a piece of a broken tape wrapped around the capstan, the tape travel will be too fast (do to the effective increase in capstan shaft diameter). If the pinch roller isn't fully engaging, the tape can be getting pulled onto the takeup spool at a speed faster than the capstan control. A different source of trouble might be a slip clutch (possibly an idler/clutch assembly)which is binding, or otherwise not functioning the way it should. Another type of motor doesn't have it's speed controlled by an internal or external voltage.. instead, the motor has an internal centrifugal speed controller. This type of motor can be found on older tape decks, and might not have been utilized more recently. Good luck

Most of these are blet driven and the belt is probably slipping. This is a relatively simple repair if you have the correct belt. I'm in Massachusetts, so I don't have any particular recommendations for you. The belt will cost around $10.

SOURCE: how do I put back the belt that slipped off my turntable?

I had the same problem & came up with this solution. It is very simple.

Take the platter completly off the turntable by pulling on the nipple in the middle of the platter. If you are unsure what the platter is it is the base that the record lies on. It may take a good pull to get the platter off.

Take the belt completly out of the turntable. On the underside of the platter you will see a large circular lip. Wrap the belt around the exterior of the lip. Make sure that the belt is flat & not twisted.

Inside the turntable you will see a large round white gear. On the edge of this gear you will see a semi circle cut out of it with no teeth on it. Align this groove facing front & center of the unit. You can feel it pop into this natural position.

Take the platter & on the underside you will see a small white gear in the center. On the bottom edge of the gear you will see a square notch. This square notch needs to face the front & in center of the unit.

On the inside of the turntable there is a small white wheel on the right side near the record player arm. This is where the belt has to wrap around. This is the motor.

Take the platter & sit it on your lap with the underside facing up. Align the square notch that's on the gear so it is facing 12 o'clock. Pinch the belt at 3 o'clock and pull it a couple inches away from the lip.

Now flip the platter over & be prepared to install it in the unit.

With the belt pinched away from the unit slip the pinched portion over the the small white wheel that is the motor. Put the spindle that is in the center of the platter into the center hole of the turntable. Make sure the belt does not get twisted & that the belt is still on the outside of the lip not getting pinched or hanging off. Remember to keep the square notch that is on the the underside of the platter facing front & center. This step may take a few tries so just be patient.

Now push the center of the platter all the way down as far as it will go.

Turn on the turntable & enjoy your vinyl!

The turntable belt wasn't atached and i need th know how to put it back on.


Good day. Lift the rubber mat off the platter and notice the two rather large holes in the plater. Put your thumb and forefinger through the holes and pull the platter off the turntable unit. Place the platter upside down and notice the inner rim which holds the belt. Place the new belt around the inner rim and replace the platter onto the unit. Now, with tweesers, working through one of the large holes, pull the belt onto the spindle motor. Once on, spin the platter by hand and make sure the belt does not slip off. Hope this helps

Belt on turntable needs replacing


should have a retainer clip of some sort right in the center of the platter. Should look something like this, you will need to take it off first.

Philco Turntable/CD with cassette


Sounds like a classic case of beltitis-most cd players incorporate a small belt attached to a motor and gear on the front of the unit,it either has went bad,bad meaning stretched out or it could be broke in two.Just because its new to you doesnt mean that it didnt sit in a hot warehouse for months before it was put on a retailers shelf.When rubber is subject to heat for long periods of time it breaks down the chemical which keeps elasticity.check that first,if the belt appears or seems to be in decent shape then clean the gear and belt with some isopropyl alcohol,environments like a restaurant which most likely have a lot of grease in the air can slowly built up on the parts inside causing things to slip,might as well spray some wd40 in there,if that isnt the case any of the above then you either have a bad motor ore bad motor ic,ok well good luck and have fun hope you get it going,i just found one in the dumpster that somebody was throwing away because the cd player does not work,good for me im a bench tech,the optic lens assembly is bad,for ten dollars i can replace it with a brand new one to keep this ****** rockin,bye

I've been messing with mine because it says no disc and I messed it up so it started saying this error. Unscrew the screws around the top (4 screws) and slide off the top cover. The small black rectangular box that sits over the eye/laser can be removed carefully by compressing the clips. Then the cd tray can be removed. I figured out this error was coming up because I had the tray out of alignment... so try to see if that's the problem with yours... also the eye itself slides (the entire mechanism it's on... slides away from and towards the place where the cd sits to be lifted and read) and it should be as close as possible to the area that lifts the cd. Sorry if this isn't making sense... trying to explain in the best way possible. The tray being out of alignment causes that error though.

Cd changer malfunction


I know that this sounds like a crazy solution to Pitsy`s CD problem but today i took a chance by using my lawn gas blower. First I opened the drawers of my CD turntable and also my cassett doors. I put ear plugs on and blasted the air into the openings. All i can say is it is now working fine !! Lou F.
