Question about Kenwood XD-A55 CD Shelf System
I have an old JVC L-A120 turntable. I finally got around to ordering the belt for it, but now that I've gotten it installed (correctly, I might add), it's still not working. The drive pulley rotates if it's uninhibited, but once I put the belt on, it stops completely. Is it possible the motor's going bad? Do I need to oil it? (And if so, what exactly is involved?) I don't really want to put much money into this (it's just my parents' old turntable), so please let me know if you have an idea of how much this may cost me to take care of. Thanks so much for any help you can offer!
I just worked on a unit with the same problem. The spindle bearing will seize up if it is not oiled at least once a year. Take off the feet and split the top and bottom. Remove the three screws that hold on the spindle. Remove the E clip that holds on the gear. Put it in a vise and press off the gear and remove the shaft. Thoroghly clean off the shaft and the bearing. Lub with 3 in 1 oil and reassemble.

You have 3 choices
Screw on the side of the bearing holder (underneath the turntable)
The platter has seized (or just tight) to the center spindle.
I would suggest the latter

Does the turntable spin freely?
The bearing could need lubricating.

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