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.

How do I know if I need to replace the turntable belt?


Belts are like big rubber bands. If they wear out and begin to stretch with age, there is no longer enough tension to move the turntable. They may also start and then quit once it warms up and the belt gets warm and expands. See how loose it is once it has been running.

The turntable belt wasn't atached and i need th know how to put it back on.


Good day. Lift the rubber mat off the platter and notice the two rather large holes in the plater. Put your thumb and forefinger through the holes and pull the platter off the turntable unit. Place the platter upside down and notice the inner rim which holds the belt. Place the new belt around the inner rim and replace the platter onto the unit. Now, with tweesers, working through one of the large holes, pull the belt onto the spindle motor. Once on, spin the platter by hand and make sure the belt does not slip off. Hope this helps

Turntable will not rotate when in "Phono" mode


I recently was given my Father's CR78CD and, assuming your unit is in working order, you turn on the turntable motor by lifting the tonearm off the post and moving it away from the turntable about one and a half to two inches. You should hear a soft click as the switch for the motor activates.

Turntable will not turn, power goes on. Does this system have a belt for the turntable or is there a manuel or schematics to this system?


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

Hi, I have a technics stereo system from 1986.


If the turntable is belt driven you may have a stretched and slipping belt that needs replacement. This seems most likely and is simple to fix. You will have to lift off the turntable to see the mechanism beneath. It may be held on by a nut or clamp. A web search for the model name and "dirve belt" may yield a replacement.

If it is driven directly by a motor without a belt, the motor is probably dying. Replacement more involved, expensive, and hard to justify, unless you're really into vinyl.

Rca record player is playing slowed down or sped up


Hi there

this sounds like the belt that drives the turntable itself is slipping you can normally access it by removing the securing clip by the centre spindle and then lift the turntable up and you should be able to see the belt give the belt a good clean with isopropyl alcohol refit and hey presto (if you still get slippage order a replacement belt )

Turntable plays too fast


I have seen this problem before. Lift the turntable off. It might be held down with a clip around the center pole. Under it you will see a wheel that contacts the turn table and the center shaft of the motor. The motor shaft has 3 0r 4 elevations with different diameters. When you change the speed the wheel will move up and down to different diameter levels on the motor shaft. It must be free to move. It might need some oil at the moving parts as I suspect it is not moving properly.
Hope this helps.

Fisher turntable mt 6410 removal


Look at spindle bearing in center of t-table. There is probably a small ring lock there holding the table. Use a pick or small screw driver to carefully remove this ring.
