I have a Pioneer PL-A35 turntable. I had the belt

I have a Pioneer PL-A35 turntable. I had the belt replaced and it worked for a couple of minutes and then stopped. The turntable is plugged in, but the pully does not move, even when the belt is removed from it. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm working on changing the belt on a similar turntable. Is there any trick to lifting the platter? Mine seems totally locked down.

It could be that the motor has frozen up. Try putting some fresh oil in the motor. There are two spots on the motor that have small holes for oil and under the platter are two very small round silver oiling holes. Try to work the motor spindle back and forth and see if the motor will turn. If you can not get it to turn you will need to replace it.

The may be a 'dead spot' on the motor, try to jump start it by spinning it with your fingers several times. it's a longshot but it might work

Need to replace the belt, but I can get the Platter off. How do I get the Platter off on my Pioneer PL-30 turntable

Take the bottom off and there may be a round cylinder that should be filled with oil and a cap that screws off. Remove the cap and I think there is a clip that needs to be removed.

My Pioneer PL-112D turntable has a broken drivebelt, is it possible to buy a new one, and is there a diagram showing the belt "routing". Thanks.

I don't believe this belt is being provided by the Pioneer. So I did find another option at a reasonable price on E-bay.
