This is held down by a magnet. So, all you have to do is lift up. There is nothing else holding it down. You might need to slightly tap the center spindle with a rubber mallet, or similar, to disrupt the magnetic hold.

Platter is rubbing against sides of turntable, making a grating sound. How can I fix it?

Remove the plater with the two screws and bow the two pieces of metal where you screw your platter on a bit to above. If the ain\'t it , check the screws where you engine is connected with on the inside and otherwise the rottor holder ain\'t straight anymore, so just inscrew the backplate of the motor , heat that shitty glue , which can be a hell to remove and the pieve of the where the rotor spins on , needs a couple of tick with little hammer in the middle , which will raise the rotor and you have more space.... don\'t hit it to hard and only till it\'s straight. gr richard

Remove platter stanton

I know the problem, don't going pulling hard. Give a little knock with a small hammer en voila, the platter is loose. If not, let somebody
pull the platter and give a knock on the spindle(first use a bit thin oil from above, non aggressive, bike chain lubricantoil is perfect) and then it's easy. But pulling has no use, While a hammer does wonders.
Succes, richard

Bought an ion turntable (contour lp) and after playing a few records it just stopped mid way through playing a record and wont work anymore. its not the fuse. have you any idea what it could be??

If the turntable is a belt driven unit have you checked to see if the belt has slipped off from around the inside on the platter. Or maybe it could be snapped.
Put you ear to the turntable and switch it to play (you will have to pull the tone arm to where it would normally be to play an LP) listen for a faint noise of a motor running. If you can hear it, the drive belt could be the culprit.
I just checked and YES it is a belt drive. I'll bet my boots that's the problem. Pull the power plug and inspect the actual platter to see if it's removeable. You may have to rmove a circlip from the main drive shaft to remove the platter. To replace the belt. Slip it over the motor shaft and lay it in the bottom under where the platter sits. Then replace the plater and using two fingers pick up the belt and guide it onto the rim the inner rim under the platter and keep rotating the platter slowly until the complete belt is around that inner rim.

Things are now ready to go. If the belt continues to fall off it means it''s been stretched and you will require a replacement. Obviously for free if it's under warranty. Changing the belt yourself shouldn't void the warranty.

My stanton t50 turntable plays too fast even when the pitch fader is at the slowest speed

You need to calibrate your pitch control. This requires a small precision screwdriver (similar to something you would repair eye glasses with). If you look under the turntable where the pitch control is you will find 2 small holes, 1 marked 33 and 1 marked 45. Turn the turntable on and set the pitch control lever to zero pitch. While the turntable is spinning insert the screw driver into the pitch calibration hole under the turntable and twist the potentiometer back and forth until the turntable pitch is zero (I believe clockwise is faster, counterclockwise is slower as you look up from the bottom of the turntable). This is a fine tune adjustment and will not require much turning to adjust the speed (1 or 2 mm's) either way should start to bring you into zero pitch. The platter speed can be verified by the little dots on the rim of the platter. They should appear stationary in strobe light on the power switch when you are at zero pitch. When you are adjusting the speed you will observe the dots on the platter rim spinning clockwise and then counterclockwise as you adjust the fine tuning. Fine tune the speed until the dots appear stationary and you will be back to zero pitch. You have to adjust the turntable at both speeds 33 and 45 using the correct fine tuning hole under the turntable. My personal experience is it is easiest to do this with 2 people. 1 person to hold the turntable level and running, while the other adjusts the fine tuning. Hope this helps.

Spilled beer on plater Pioneer CDJ-800MK2

Well, the problem is that you spilled beer on your platter.

More than likely the beer dried up, and now it's all sticky.

Professional cleaning is highly suggested.

I have a tecnics turntable and need to know how to put the belt on Its model # is SL-L26

Lift off the rubber platter cover (the disk that records set on while playing) there should be 2 openings in the aluminum plate. Slowly rotate platter until you can see the pulley of motor. Lift aluminum platter straight up and off. Place belt around underneath pulley on platter. Reinstall platter to turntable. Reach through one of slots in plater and grasp the belt gently, line up slot with motor pulley and place belt over pulley (ensuring not to twist belt) rotate platter to observe belt, confirming correct installation. Reinstall rubber platter cover. VOLA!

Belt Loop

Hi, If you take the platter (The Silver Wheel) off you will find that you will have a little tiny motorised wheel, you need to wrap the belt around that little wheel aswell as fitting it aroung the platter. Hope this helps.
