I'm guessing that the belt is too large (stretched). Normally it should be small enough to stay on the platter itself. Install the platter and place the belt around the motor hub (white plastic), If the belt is too loose, it will just sit and not turn the platter. Try a new belt first as that is the least expensive option to try.

Keep us posted.

    If the belt is in good condition, next most common failure is the motor itself. These can develope "dead spots" which will effecthow smoothly thay operate. If you can get to the motor, try lubricating it with a light oil. Sometimes an accumulation of dust can create some resistance to movement.



    Keep us posted,

    With the belt removed completely, the platter should turn rather freely. Give it a good spin and it should turn and continue for a while slowing down until it stops after 5 or more revolutions. If it stopps quickly, the whole assembly needs to be degreassed and relubricated.

How to put the belt on aiwa stereo full automatic turntable px e855


Lift off the rubber cover. On some turntables, you can pull the whole metal platter straight-up now. Put the belt on the outside of the bottom of the platter and drop platter back into the turntable base. Do NOT put the rubber cover back on yet. There should be one or two openings in the platter where you can see the pulley for the motor. Slowly rotate the turntable platter until the opening is over the top of the motor pulley. Now use a nail file to gently pull the rubber belt over the pulley. It should spin freely now. Now put the rubber cover back on and try it out. Belts are available from MCM Electronics and over online vendors. Let me know how it goes. Good luck.

Lift the rubber cover off- there should be an opening or two in the metal or plastic turntable platter. Rotate it slowly until you see the motor pulley sticking-up; use a nail file to gently pull the belt from the bottom of the turntable over the pulley. rotate slowly to verify and then put the rubber cover back on. Let me know how it goes. Thanks.

Hi, the belt on our Teac Turntable has come off while moving to new home. Can I get manual that shows how to put it back on?


If you open the top lid of your turntable, you will see a black rubber disc that sits on the pladder, it should come off revealing the metal pladder, you should see holes that will show your belt and the turntable motor when pladder is rotated. In order to put the belt back on you must remove the pladder, but before you do check to see if there is a C clip holding it down, after removing the clip the pladder should come off, put the belt on the inner rim of the pladder, now slowly work the pladder on the spindle make sure one of the pladder holes allows you to see the motor, put a small blunt object between the belt and the inner pladder and use it to stretch the belt to slip over motor then push the pladder down and rotate it making sure the belt is turning with the motor, next replace the rubber disc and finally the C clip if it is present.

My teac p-595 turntable has a grounding wire that is looped at one end but I don't know where the loop goes. The wire on the other end is fastened to the receiver.


The ground wire should be attached to the metal chassis or the tone arm metal assembly, the other end should be attached to the metal chassis of the amplifier. If the ground wire is not used, you will get real loud hum through the amplifier.

I need to remove platter on ttusb ion turntable to fix belt... it has slipped off... thanks in advance for your help


I do not know the particulars of your turntable, but in most units, you take off the rubber pad on the platter, and that will give you access to the metal dish, which has holes to gain access to the belt pulley. Slip off the belt, and then you will be able to pull up the metal dish. After you replace the belt, reverse the procedure. Just make sure that the belt is close to the pulley before you insert back the metal dish.

Turntable won't turn


Hi!

Without any other information (and assuming you've checked to make sure there is power to the turntable and that it is turned on), the likely culprit is the belt drive of your turntable. Most, but not all, turntables have a "belt" that looks like a big rubber band on the underside of the turntable that connects the turntable itself to the drive motor. If the band has slipped out of place, stretched too far from age or usage, or broken, the turntable won't turn. To find out if this is your problem, gently lift the "platter" straight up (it should easily slide back into place) and visually see if the "rubber band" is in place. If it is stretched too far or broken, a new one should be availble form Teac or your local electronics supplier. If, by chance, you have a direct-drive turntable (unlikely), the problem will probably need professional work.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!

Belt came off


Remove the rubber mat and you will see two holes in the turntable. Put your fingers in these holes & using equal force pull up to release the turntable. The drive belt goes around the metal disk you will see below and around the drive pulley. Most likely it has just jumped off the pulley so hook it back over. Replace the turntable and gently rotate it a couple of revolutions, you can see the belt through the holes in the turntable. If all is seated OK power up & enjoy! You can download the manual from the link below: http://usa.denon.com/DP29F_DFU_ownersmanual.pdf This shows the procedure as per original install. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
