JVC L-A10 Turntable won't turn on

As I said it power won't come on. The belt is broken, I don't know if that would prevent the turntable from activating. All wires look good, however I have not looked inside at the circuit boards, any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for very quick reply, I was wondering what to look for if its defective? This turntable has been in storage probably for 15 years or more. I know it needs a new belt, I already replaced the needle. I hope the circuit board is not fried out.

How to remove Platter on JVC L-A120 Turntable


Hi Jeff...
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.

  • Loop replacement band around the pulley cylinder in the motor. Replace platter and bottom plate. Tighten spindle screw. Test the new belt by turning the platter clockwise two or three rotations. Belt should fit snugly and turn with little resistance.

    AL-A1 turntable won t turn


    take the platter & belt back off, then check to see if the motor spins, if it does the belts the wrong size or put on wrong, if it doesn't spin then you better get your butter & jam out, to put on your toast.

    It won't turn


    If the platter doesn't spin then check the belt has not fallen off. It will be seen in a hole under the turntable matt.

    Turntable does NOT turn.Crosley CR66 vintage Radio and Turntable


    Try this - GENTLY move the phono arm to the RIGHT until you hear a click Tof course, do this after you turn on the power via the volume dial and set the other dial to"phono"). Doing this turns on the turntable when you haven't used it in awhile. This worked for us, hope it works for you.

    If it doesn't work, you can check the belt by removing the tiny clip at the center post and gently lift the turntable platform/tray to peek at the motor and belt underneath. The pulley is on the right at the 2 o'clock position, the belt should be in contact with it.

    Table does no rotate


    If it is belt-driven the belt may be broken or fallen off.  Lift the turntable to check underneath.  There may be a spring clip near the center of the turntable that you have to remove to lift it.

    My KD-291RC has power but my turntable wont turn. I touch the needle and I can hear its on and when I move the arm towards the record or set it on it it will not turn. Help?


    Your turntable is belt-driven, it's likely that the belt just fell off. The belt lives under the turntable. On my turntable (a totally different model) the turntable lifts off.

    Turntable will not turn


    There is really nothing else to it. If the drive belt is in tact, and properly installed, and the spindle motor is rotating properly, your turntable should rotate. There's nothing else that rotates the platter. Just make sure the belt is wrapped around the spindle motor.
