Some platters are simply press fit into place. the trick to un-press fitting them is TWO people! one lifts up moderately on the platter itself with both hands about 180degrees apart. Usually by pulling up on the 'access windows' that are revealed after removing the mat.

person two taps ***LIGHTLY*** on the center spindle with something like the plastic handle of a large screwdriver, a rubber mallet, a wooden spoon from the kitchen, generally something softer than a big metal hammer!!

How to remove Platter on JVC L-A120 Turntable


Hi Jeff...
The platter on the JVC LA-10 does not come off as most turntable platters do. It is attached to the spindle with a Philips head screw.

Here are the steps:
Remove dust cover from turntable. Unscrew hinges and lift.

  • Turn the turntable on its side and remove screws that hold the top to its base. Remove platter by unscrewing the bottom plate from the turntable. The spindle bearing is held in place with a Philips head screw. Loosen it and the platter will separate easily from the spindle.

  • Loop replacement band around the pulley cylinder in the motor. Replace platter and bottom plate. Tighten spindle screw. Test the new belt by turning the platter clockwise two or three rotations. Belt should fit snugly and turn with little resistance.

    Why did it stop revolving?


    The driving element, be it belt or rubber puck, may have failed. It's not an unusual failure in a turntable that is several years old and rarely used.

    Turntable has stopped working, possible belt stretch


    I don't think it's likely that the motor is in trouble just by having the belt wrong. It would require more physical damage to cause the motor to play up. Having said that the motor could have been in trouble before you touched the belt. But you do need a new belt, all you need to do is measure the diameter of the belt in mm. You might also need to measure the width. To find a new belt put the words "turntable drive belt XXmm" into Google. You can add Crosley to the start, but many belts are universal. Your measurements don't need to be spot on with the diameter, so if you have measured it at say 95mm, a 90mm to 100mm belt will do the job. However fitting the new belt is a different matter. You need to know the correct way, or the speed might be wrong. I can't help you with the fitting of it, so you will need to check how to do it. Some makes have YouTube videos of the fitting. I would just look for Crosley and see if any look like your model.

    If fitted correctly and there's a problem with speed still, then you should look more closely at the motor.

    If you have the original measure the Diameter in mm and also the width in MM. You don't have to be spot with these measurements.
    Then put the words "turntable belt XXmm (diameter) into Google. You should find something, you can narrow it down by adding the width, but I would just try the diameter first.
    If you need to remove the belt make a note of how it fits first!

    My sony pslx250h turnable belt was ordered and i can't find the repair book to repair it.


    Pretty simple fix. Remove the mat, remove the turntable, install new belt on bottom of turntable hub. Place turntable back onto spindle. rotate turntable so you can see motor pulley. Stretch the belt from turntable hub over motor pulley, replace mat, enjoy.

    I just bought a aiwa turntable & stereo at yard sale. the old lady said she never used it but yet the turntable will not turn. i've looked over the manual and can't find any troubleshooting. can you...


    Hi Denise, I am in the consumer electronics repair industry. It may be as simple as this... Lift up the MAT on the turn table. This is the black rubber covering that you place the record on. Look through the holes in the plastic turntable (rotate if necessary) until you see the motor/pulley shaft sticking up (brass color). The turntable belt may have dislodged from this pulley. If you see the black flat rubber belt near here, just put it around the pulley again. Make sure it is not twisted and sits flat. Spin table by hand to be sure it is seated properly.
    Now you may have to remove the plastic turntable itself if you can't see the belt right away. In this case, remove the C-clip with a flat screwdriver (be sure not to lose it) from the record center post. Lift the turntable plate up shaft. Check to see if the belt is still partially around the plate. You may be able to just see enough to wrap the belt around the motor pulley now. If you need to take the plate off completely, then just place the belt first around the groove on the plate and finese the belt around the motor pulley. Now seat the plate, replace the C-clip and place the MAT back on and it should be good to go.
    I had this same problem on a new turntable I got for free. Good luck : )

    I have just a basic belt drive turntable and the belt fell off.... i need help on how to put it back on


    Hi There.
    If the belt falls of the platter, it might be an indication that the belt has stretched and is now too large. Or maybe it just fell off for any other reason.
    Remove the rubber mat, and pull upwards on the platter to remove it. Sometimes there is a small "C" clip on the center spindle that has to be removed first. (use a small flat screwdriver to remove)
    Turn platter over, and put rubber belt around diameter ring on underside of platter. It should be snug, and not fall off when you turn platter over.
    Put platter back onto turntable, and spin by hand until you see the motor shaft through one of the holes in platter.
    With a pair of tweezers - or crochet hook, put belt over shaft.
    You're done.
    Put back rubber mat and give it a try.
    Good luck,
    Fred
    PS: If there was a "C" clip, you can re-install it - or throw it away.

    Look at spindle bearing in center of t-table. There is probably a small ring lock there holding the table. Use a pick or small screw driver to carefully remove this ring.

    Your turntable motor is shot. It's simple to remove and replace. you don't even have to take the microwave out of the shelf. To remove it take out seven screw around the perimeter of the bottom. Lift up on back of bottom to get over clips on the back. Remove the two screws holding the motor in and detach the plug. Find a electrical repair shop for you make pick it up and replace it. When replacing it take out plate and hold plate key down and align flat side of shaft on motor with the plate key.
