Question about Denon DP-26F Turntable
The band is on okay, but the wheel that turns the band doesn't turn. I took the bottom off, hoping to maybe find a bad fuse, but I knew better. I know it's old, but probably not played 20 hours max. Any suggestions? Thanks, Randy
Add a couple drops of mystery oil to the motor shaft under the motor pulley and do what the 1st guy said

Through the platter motor access window, unhook belt from motor spindle (usually brass) which is exposed on the left side when you remove the mat.
Now give the motor a spin with your thumb/index finger. repeat up to maybe a dozen times. sometimes a motor like this will get a dead spot where a bit of debris will 'gum up the works' and stop the electrical contact it needs to spin.
if it does start working by some miracle, then just let is sit and run at 45rpm for hours or even days, this may kinda rub off some very light corrosion that might have built up on the armature over the years. (if it is a brush type motor)
