WASH YOUR HANDS FIRST! Any oils on the drive belt may cause slippage.

This is from the manual:

A) Remove the record mat from the turntable platter
(Fig. 10a). Through an opening in the
turntable platter, visually inspect to see if the drive belt
is around the motor pulley (Fig. 10b).
B) If the drive belt is not around the motor pulley: Lift
and remove the turntable. Place a thumb into each of
the left and right openings on the turntable platter; and,
using the fingers to press down on the turntable housing’s
surface, pull the platter straight up (Fig. 10c).
Avoid pressing on the tone arm.
C) With the turntable platter bottom side up, place the
belt along the outside wall of the turntable platter's
drive rim, making certain that the belt is smooth and
flat all the way around (Fig. 10d).
D) Put the turntable back on the center spindle, make
certain it is fully seated, and align one of its openings
over the motor pulley position.
E) Through the opening, carefully hook the turntable
belt with a finger or with the original red ribbon (never
use a sharp object) and pull the belt over the motor
pulley (Fig. 10e). Make certain the belt is not twisted
between the pulley and the platter’s drive rim.
F) Put the record mat back on the platter.
G) While holding the tone arm in its rest position,
slowly turn the platter by hand clockwise at least 10
rotations to clear the mechanism’s automatic cycle.

    I'm glad you found the old post helpful. I regeret that I didn't also place the link for the manual, which I now do routinely as many people seem to think it is OUR job to read it to them.

I have an Audio-Technica turntable (AT-PL50). I recently moved and when I hooked my turntable back up, the sound is terrible. It sounds distorted, similar to the sound of blown-out speakers. But, I checked...


it sounds like your cartridge is shot and damaged.
this turntable has fixed cartridge and only the stylus can be changed.

Belt came off when I moved it, just need to know how to put it back on. I know that it should be on the golden spinning part, how else is it placed?


Hi put the belt on the platter first, remove the rubber cover and then place the platter back on. There should be a hole through the platter where you can grab it, then stretch it to go over the motor spindle. Hope that helps

My audio-technica PL50 plays 45s at the wrong speed.


believe it or not not it probably doesn`t even play your lp`s at the right speed? Its probably because your drive belt has actually stretched? rubber belts do wear and maybe seek out a replacement drive belt?

try this company?
