Should have a retainer clip of some sort right in the center of the platter. Should look something like this, you will need to take it off first.

Reconnect the belt on an AIWA PX-E860 turntable


To replace a turntable drive belt.

Before starting any work on your turntable disconnect it from the mains power supply. Remove the stylus or complete headshell to prevent any accidental stylus damage.
1. Remove the rubber platter mat to expose the platter.
2. Put your thumb and forefinger through the two round holes either side of the centre spindle and lift the platter off. You may need to give the centre 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 and motor pulleys with an alcohol swab to remove any old belt residue.
4. Place the new belt around the platter pulley making sure it is sitting flat without any twists.
5. Flip platter over to the right way up. A correct fitting belt will stay put and an over sized belt will fall off.
6. You will see 1 or 2 large rectangle or square shaped cut outs in the platter near to the outer edge. Through one 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 centre 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.
You have now successfully completed the process.

If the turntable has a two-piece platter, Lift off the outer platter and place the belt around the inner platter and motor pulley.

If the turntable has a one-piece platter, lift off the whole patter, place the belt around the inner drum. There will be a hole in the platter's top through which you can reach a finger to stretch the belt so that the belt can be placed around the motor pulley as you put the platter back in place.

My PL120 turntable purchase new skips often and will hardly work with music played at a loud volume


The first problem could be the stylus needs cleaning. Please shine some light on the stylus ( needle ) and see if it has picked up dirt from the record groove. This will prevent the stylus from tracking the song properly. Clean using a fine brush in the direction in which the stylus passes the record groove i.e from back of the pick up arm to front- NEVER SIDEWAYS.
Next check the counterweight adjustment at the back of the Pick up arm. The tracking force should be between 1.5 to 3 grams depending on the brand of the cartridge. What ever be the chosen weight the antiskating knob should also be set to the same number.
The skipping can also be because of heavy bass vibration traveling up the body of the Turntable.Good turntables have a floating suspension to prevent this. The tuntable platter will be suspended on springs.You can place it on a rubber Matt or move it away from the speakers ,esp: sub woofers.

Just bought a new technics sl-1200 turntable and the pitch speeds up and down causing music to sound funny....


You will need to check your belt for wear. Lift felt on platter and check belt tension. It may need replacing. To replace, simply lift platter section of the unit, taking note of the belt position. replace and your problem will be solved

Belt fell off


HI, First remove mat from TT platter. Next hold it with upward pressure while striking centre pin with a sharp tap, (real light instrument) not blow. Next you will see the motor shaft (once TT is removed) note it's position, put belt back onto TT rim, that will be the underside flange, lift belt by one finger away from flange edge and place TT back over spindle while having finger with belt over motor shaft. allow belt to contact with motor. Now belt should be around under platter flange and around motor pulley. If this is correct, power up, if all works replace soft mat and enjoy the music. A word of warning, the belt and stylus/cartridge may need replacement!

How do you start up a tuntable?


Look for a switch that has 33 and 45 unless the hole in the middle of the record is rather large turn it to 33.

The trick is to lift up on the platter (tothat metal on metal feel that you had) while simtaneously "lightly" tapping on the top of the shaft with a hammer. Trust me it will work as just changed my belt.
Hope that helps.
