This turntable is linear tracking, meaning that the tonearm slides from side to side. Inside there is a belt coming off a motor and over to a pulley that will move the tonearm from left to right n right to left. If you feel qualified it can be replaced with moderate from the bottom after removing the bottom cover with the power OFF. the belt can be found here.

    I have exactly the same problem with my JVC L-E5. I am glad to hear that it can be sorted, so will summon my hi fi expert rather than trying to buy another turntable! Many thanks.

Turntable arm not moving across record?


Try, without any record on the table, if you can move the are, to the centre of the table. If you feel anything that is holding the arm, try to find out what it could be. Never use force. Also look inside if you can't find a clear obstruction on the top of the table. If you should find anything, don't bent, or don't break anything. Let a technical skilled person look why the obstruction is there and where the "thing" should be so the aren can move free. Perhaps you ned the obstruction for something only a few centimetres to the left or the right.

JVC turntable AL-E300 turntable slowing down when tone arm moves iacross


Even if the belt looks fine it's almost certainly the problem. You mentioned "cleaning" - if you got any kind of fluid on the belt it might act as a lubricant and reduce the friction between the belt and the drive wheel, causing the turntable to slow when the tone arm puts a drag on it. The problem may go away when the belt dries out.

JVC - problem. The turntable does not move,


Most modern day turntables are semi-automatic. You move the tonearm from the rest post
over to the record and the platter will start turning. There is a small microswitch inside
either below the arm base or near. There should be a flat bar connected to the base of the arm
and this will actuate the microswitch. The switch is wired in series to the rotation motor.

Solution: 1. Obviously verify the belt is on. Take off the rubber mat and rotate the platter.
The rotation motor is on the left and it has a small brass spindle. The belt should
be visable through the holes in the platter. If not pull the platter gently up, there will
be some resistance. The belt wraps around a smaller inner ring on the underside
of the platter and the rotation motor spindle. If it is degraded it will be stuck to the
platter or fall apart. Generally there 3 common sizes. ( 21.4 / 23.6 / 25 inch) they
readily available on E-Bay, search term "turntable belt".
2. Obviously check power.
3. Check the microswitch, it should "click", verify with ohm meter.
4. Some turntables have a "cut" or stop function. The arm must return first to rest before
starting again, again the microswitch is the trigger.

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

Tone arm won't drop


This is a tough one. There is usually a series of gears that function in unison to make all the magic happens. These gears are usually set in motion by a smaller belt located inside the unit. If this belt has come off or is damaged, your unit will not work. Or, if the gears have cracked, or dried up, same issue.

Suggest taking it to a service center for repair.

Table turns only once in a while.


The problem is probably the belt. When a belt gets old it tends to stretch and/or get stiff. Listen to see if you hear the motor turning. If it comes on when you lift the arm, it is not the switch.
