Stanton T50 turntables.There is left/right play in the spindle which means the platter wobbles when pressure is put on it.Anyone know how to strip the top of the turntable to get to the spindle base?

Like most turntables, you have to strip the top of the platter of it's covers to get to what is holding the spindle in place. The cover might be held with glue. So you just have to force it off. You can glue it back after you have done. I suspect the spindle will be held by a horseshoe clip. Again another tricky thing to get off.

How do i remove the platter of Pioneer PL512?

You will need to peel off the rubber matt. You can glue it back with Bostick afterwards. At the spindle should be a horseshoe clip. It could be covered up, so you will have to remove the covering too. Remove the horseshow clip and it should come off.

Can i replace focusing ring on nikon 18-200 lens

Rubber focus ring can be purchased in ebay.
The rubber ring may be attached to the lens with glue. Use denature alchohol between the rubber and lens to remove the rubber ring. It can be stretched little. Once removed, clean any glue on the lens and stretch the new rubber ring and install.

Have a Denon 1805 DVD/CD 5 disk changer. A circular part about the size of a quarter came out with the last DVD I took out. Now it won't play either DVD's or CD's

I belive it is a magnet which usually hold a CD on the spindle motor during playing. you need to take off top cover and find the spindle. The spindle has a round base for the disk, above the base should be another round piece with the magnet so during playing the disk is fixed between these two pieces. Check if there is missing round magnet in top piece. You can probably glue the magnet in place. Be careful, everything is fragile there, you can make more damages, probably better to bring it to a repair shop.

After about 10 years of good service, our bread machine pan has developed a leak and the fittings at the bottom feel loose. It's a Breadman Trillium tr500. Thanks for your help!

Remove the rubber washer at the bottom of the pan, split the washer in two halves and glue a #31 O-ring to the bottom half of the old washer. Push it over the post and you might even glue it to the bottom of the pan, then glue the top half of the washer to the top of the O-ring. It worked for me.

Horrible grinding/buzzing noise when spinning game discs and does't read them 50% of the time, but plays dvd movies fine with no buzzing/grinding noise no red lights at any time

It the cd drive hub or the spindle motor pad is dirty.
It isn't clamping the disk firmly so when the drive
speeds up or stops abruptly the disc continues
to spin , it shouldn't cause surface damage to
the cd but it sounds like hell .

If you disassemble the xbox and the cd rom
drive ,clean the the hub and spindle motors pad
this should remedy the noise problem.

Also there is the possibility that
the hub magnet came loose this
would decress the clamping force
of the hub, than you would need to
snap the round magnet in the Hub
back in to place . if get there
let me know and ill explain further

if you have any questions just comment and ill respond

I have a JVC JL A20 turntable. I installed the black rubber band (belt)around the ring on the bottom of the subplatter and the pin. The pin turns when I move the arm over the platter. But the pin does not...

Your center pin is seized. You need to remove the three screws holding the center pin. Then remove the screw holding the shaft in place. Lubricate it with a light grease/oil and reassemble. I used spray lithium grease, but don't know if its correct.

Panasonic DMR-ES10

Does the unit emit a groaning sound just before it fails? If so, then the drive spindle is the problem; the sound is caused by the slipping of the disk on the spindle. It could be contaminated with particles (dust, DDV plastic. etc). Look for scratches on the inner ring area of the bottom side of the DVD. those are an indication of foreign material on the spindle. It may be worse with disks that have been used many times. Just touching the hub area with your fingers can leave contaminates. Try first cleaning the disk hub area on the botton side. Stay away from the writable area. The drive spindle can be cleaned by removing the metal top from the unit and then removing the black plastic cover from the drive top (4 screws). Wipe clean the rubber surface on the top side of the spindle. Then replace the covers. As the unit ages, the rubber will get harder and more prone to slipping. A cotton cloth soaked in alcohol may be used to clean and refresh the rubber surface as a last resort. Reply to this message if you want pictures of the process.

DVD recorder model DMR-ES30V

I know this is very late to reply, but here it goes anyway. The groaning sound if from the DVD disc slipping on the drive spindle. There is probably a buildup of particles on the rubber surface of the spindle, probably from the DVDs themselves. Remove the metal cover from the unit. Then remove the 4 screws from the top of the black plastic drive and lift off the top. Locate the drive spindle in the middle of the drive and carefully wipe the rubber ring surface on the top surface of the spindle. Use a clean piece of cotton dampened with alcohol. Then install the drive top panel and metal unit cover. You wioll need to repeat this periodically whenever the groaning symptom reappears.

How to place the belt on the turntable.......



Pull rubber matt off TT. Use a small screw driver to pop off the small black "C" clip at base of steel record post. UNderneath plastic disc you will see the belt, and it loops on the metal post and over to the plastic barrel shaft to its right. Try this:


  1. Using Non-gelatin based nail polish remover OR acetone (gotten from any hardware store), and a few Q-Tips, rub the belt inside and out along its entire length until you feel the tacky rubber feeling come back to the belt. You may also see the shiny surface come off the belt as you clean it. The shiney look is from belt slippage and its like a glazing. Also, if you notice any of this black glazing on the two belt posts, clkean them off as well.
  2. If belt broken, replace with new by looping it back around the two posts under plastic TT platter.

If its truely a belt issue these two should solve it.
