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?

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.

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
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.
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.

What is the make and the model number of the turntable? I do know that the record platter is held on by gravity and lifts off most truntables I've replaced belts on, then it is just a matter of threading the belt over the motor pulley, most time you can do this from up top once the platter is removed, at worst you remove the bottom to thread the new belt onto the motor pulley.
hi, firs of all remove from the mains. pull out the rubber bed over the platter. check whether there is any lock washer in the center shaft. if have remove it. if not its ok. now pull the platter towards upside by putting the fingers in to the holes provided on the platter. remember pull using ur two hands in opposite direction. ok
on the shaft in the center where the hole of the record goes there is a locking washer on it . you can carefully remove this with a thin knife of something similar . you may need to use a little force , it is on there pretty tight however it can be removed .good luck
