Question about Audio Players & Recorders

The belt slipped out of my turntable. my model is panasonic sg-hm22. the radio and cassette deck and radio are fine. help because the manual doesn't tell you how to do it. I've had this since 1996. please help. I am not mechanically inclined and need step by step directions and diagram. the dish popped off and the belt came off in tact the dish is fine. There are no cracks inside. please reply. Lillie
I had the same problem & came up with this solution. It is very simple.
Take the platter completly off the turntable by pulling on the nipple in the middle of the platter. If you are unsure what the platter is it is the base that the record lies on. It may take a good pull to get the platter off.
Take the belt completly out of the turntable. On the underside of the platter you will see a large circular lip. Wrap the belt around the exterior of the lip. Make sure that the belt is flat & not twisted.
Inside the turntable you will see a large round white gear. On the edge of this gear you will see a semi circle cut out of it with no teeth on it. Align this groove facing front & center of the unit. You can feel it pop into this natural position.
Take the platter & on the underside you will see a small white gear in the center. On the bottom edge of the gear you will see a square notch. This square notch needs to face the front & in center of the unit.
On the inside of the turntable there is a small white wheel on the right side near the record player arm. This is where the belt has to wrap around. This is the motor.
Take the platter & sit it on your lap with the underside facing up. Align the square notch that's on the gear so it is facing 12 o'clock. Pinch the belt at 3 o'clock and pull it a couple inches away from the lip.
Now flip the platter over & be prepared to install it in the unit.
With the belt pinched away from the unit slip the pinched portion over the the small white wheel that is the motor. Put the spindle that is in the center of the platter into the center hole of the turntable. Make sure the belt does not get twisted & that the belt is still on the outside of the lip not getting pinched or hanging off. Remember to keep the square notch that is on the the underside of the platter facing front & center. This step may take a few tries so just be patient.
Now push the center of the platter all the way down as far as it will go.
Turn on the turntable & enjoy your vinyl!
