    Many thanks. When I saw the bearing was not dry, I didn't think it would work, but it sure did!

My Pioneer PL-112D turntable has a broken drivebelt, is it possible to buy a new one, and is there a diagram showing the belt "routing". Thanks.


I don't believe this belt is being provided by the Pioneer. So I did find another option at a reasonable price on E-bay.

PL-L50 Pioneer direct drive turntable playing records as if it had a bad belt speed variations in playback, but direct drive has no belts of course. What could be making my records playback speed...


If there is a speed adjustment for 45 and 33 rpm records the contacts or pots need to be sprayed with some electronic cleaner to remove any dust. This is done by removing the bottom of the player and finding the control knobs inside. Electronic cleaner can be found at Radio Shack for around $10 for a large can. It does not take much. Just spay inside the control knobs inside the unit. You will find a small hole where you can put the spray tube that comes with the cleaner. Work the "pots" or knobs back and forth several times to loosen any residue inside the knob casing. Be careful not to shock yourself by removing the bottom. If you are not use to working on electronics it may be better to let someone else with more knowledge tackle the job.

Motor turns feebly, not enough to make the platter


Sounds like the motor is bad if you say it turns feebly. See if you can turn the drive shaft with your fingers easily. If you find it hard, it's possible that something might have worn out. You could try oil in that case.

My pioneer PL990 turntable, the pitch wavers.


try cleaning the inner ring on the underside of the actual turntable platter and also the motor spindle using isoprynol alcohol or use neat clear spirits like bacardi/vodka with cotton wool etc. if black residue comes off either the platter or the motor spindle that will be residue from the old belt that could cause the fluctuation in speed? good luck.

Remove any tape from the belt

That is the drive belt for the turntable .
It's not that hard to set up. Take the mat off the platter and wrap the belt around the underneath -slightly-less-diameter portion.

With a pointed end needle or something like it , put the tip between the belt and the platter portion it's wrapped against.
Pull the belt away from that( keeping the rest of the belt on the platter portion) and set it over the motor pulley. This is usually a small diameter brass spindle unit

PLace it back on the turntable, and you can stretch it back onto the motor with your finger or black stick through one of the holes on the platter, while the platter is positioned where it is accessible. if you need a replacement, try...
