Can't remove platter after removing lock washer

I've removed the lock washer for the turntable, but I can't remove the platter. I need to replace the belt, and I assume I need to take the platter off. Does the platter just lift off or do I need to unscrew the middle thingy?

It should just lift off, but might be a little stiff.

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.

  • Secure tonearm to prevent stylus damage.

  • 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.

    How do you remove the turntable?


    It depends on the turntable you have. For example Dual turntables with idler wheel drive have a spring round the platter's axle which has to be remove. Some Dual belt drive turntables have a bajonett lock, other a lever to be moved and some have only weight fixed platters. Most platters of direct drive turntalbles are just fixed by their weight and are removed with a strong pull. Greetings from northern gemany

    I HAVE A PIONEER PL-30 TURNTABLE AND I NEED TO REMOVE THE 'PLATTER' IN ORDER TO REPLACE THE BELT. THERE IS NO CLIP TO REMOVE. HOW DO I GET THE 'PLATTER' OFF. AGAIN THERE IS NO CLIP FOR REMOVAL.


    Pull up on the platter with one hand after you remove the rubber mat. Then hit the center post with a rubber mallet while pulling up on the platter with on hand just hard enough to release the platter from the post. The platter should come off.

    Need to replace the belt, but I can get the Platter off. How do I get the Platter off on my Pioneer PL-30 turntable


    Take the bottom off and there may be a round cylinder that should be filled with oil and a cap that screws off. Remove the cap and I think there is a clip that needs to be removed.

    Need Instructions to replace belt on panasonic SL-5N Turntable


    To replace a turntable drive belt.

    1, Remove the rubber platter mat to expose the platter.
    2. Put your thumb and forefinger through the two round holes and lift the platter off. You may need to give the center spindle a light tap (whilst applying upward pressure) with a screwdriver handle or some similar tool that will not leave any marks or damage.
    3. Remove the old belt and wipe the platter pulley and motor pulley with an alcohol swab to remove any old belt residue.
    4. Place the new belt around the platter pulley making sure t is sitting flat without any twists.
    5. Flip platter over the right way up. There are1or 2 larger rectangle shaped cut outs in the platter.
    6. Through the cut out pinch up the belt and slip a finger or belt hook between the platter pulley and the belt gripping the belt ready to fit over the motor pulley.
    7. Align the center hole of the platter with the spindle and place platter back into position keeping a grip on the belt.
    8. Slip belt over motor pulley and give the platter a light clockwise rotation to ensure the belt is riding correctly.
    9. Replace the rubber mat and then run the turntable to ensure correct operation.

    Job done.
