Question about Audio Players & Recorders
JVC turntable AL-E300BK I have just got this out of storage (yes in my shed!) and I tested the turntable manually and it worked fine. Then I tested the push-button start/stop button for automatic tone arm function, and now the arm moves across with the turntable spinning at the correct speed. But when the tone arm gets to the correct position and lowers itself onto the disc, the turntable suddenly slows to a snail's pace. Now the turntable isn't operating manually either. I would be really grateful if there is anyone out there who can help with this. My daughter was so excited to be able to play my old LPs but is now very disappointed. The band appears to be in good condition. I wonder if I inadvertently moved a switch when I was cleaning it, but I can't see anything I could have moved. Same problem on 33s and 45s. Thank you.
Even if the belt looks fine it's almost certainly the problem. You mentioned "cleaning" - if you got any kind of fluid on the belt it might act as a lubricant and reduce the friction between the belt and the drive wheel, causing the turntable to slow when the tone arm puts a drag on it. The problem may go away when the belt dries out.

More than likely your motor might be bad. There is nothing else that controls the speed. Are you sure you purchased the correct size belt? Turn on the unit, without connecting the belt, and touch the motor shaft, and see if it fluctuates. You can also just get a marker, and marker a point on the motor shaft. When you turn it on, it will act as a visual indication as to it's speed.

This is a tough one. There is usually a series of gears that function in unison to make all the magic happens. These gears are usually set in motion by a smaller belt located inside the unit. If this belt has come off or is damaged, your unit will not work. Or, if the gears have cracked, or dried up, same issue.
Suggest taking it to a service center for repair.
