Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps

1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

No, unfortunately the device was only meant for LP to iPod or LP to computer type connections, and doesn't support normal itunes syncing.

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 plays fine, but when I play the converted tracks in itunes, they are very low


Try turning up the GAIN (a knob at the back of the turntable). This should increase the recording level.

See if you see your turntable, If you do you can right click your mouse and select change drive letter, Change it to one you are not using and you should be back on track.

If this is not it then post more about what you are seeing.

Turntable won't turn


There is usually a cotter pin at the center of the platter around the spindle base. This can be removed with a screw driver using a twisting motion. There is a blades worth of space between the clip and the spindle base. Screw driver should be in vertical position. Sometimes the vinyl slip mat must be removed first. Watch that clip, cause it can go flyin. Once the clip is removed, the turntable should let go easily.

Record player belt


Scott, the belt wraps around the bottom of the turntable platter, then put the platter back on your turntable, and you'll have to pinch back a section of the belt and wrap around the brass motor spindle. That's pretty much it!

Good luck.

If the belt is stuck, it will be hard to take off without damaging the belt. Send it back.
