SOURCE: platter turns slow
This turntable design has a direct drive system instead of belt drive (two types). If this unit has been in storage for some time, it has most likely been at hot or cold tempuratures - not good for any electronic/mechanical system.
My guess is that the direct drive motor needs to be rebuilt - internal friction is probably keeping it from operating at proper speed. Best to consult with a repair shop that can handle direct drive turntables - several on the internet, if you cannot find one locally.
BTW: You can find a manual for this at : http://www.vinylengine.com/library/denon/dp-45f.shtml

Check for grease on the platter or anywhere in the mechanism. Sometimes somebody has messed around with the speed preset, there might be two. You could try adjusting them. Sometimes they are found on the underside of the turntable, covered up, or they will be on the PC board of the deck.

Check that your new belt is not too tight as this will slow the motor down as it tries to turn the platter. I would also suggest a little light oil (sewing machine oil is ideal - NOT WD40) on the motor spindle shaft where it goes through the motor itself it may be a little dry.
Clean off any gunk from the rim where the belt turns the platter and do the same on the pulley on the motor. Get some de-oxit (expensive but good) or SERVISOL to clean the speed change switch too.
ALL THE BEST!

If there is a speed adjustment for 45 and 33 rpm records the contacts or pots need to be sprayed with some electronic cleaner to remove any dust. This is done by removing the bottom of the player and finding the control knobs inside. Electronic cleaner can be found at Radio Shack for around $10 for a large can. It does not take much. Just spay inside the control knobs inside the unit. You will find a small hole where you can put the spray tube that comes with the cleaner. Work the "pots" or knobs back and forth several times to loosen any residue inside the knob casing. Be careful not to shock yourself by removing the bottom. If you are not use to working on electronics it may be better to let someone else with more knowledge tackle the job.
