Re: does not turn on

Have you checked to see if the motor at least turns. The motor is where the belt wraps around and causes it to turn. If you have absolutely no power, then your transformer might have shorted, and will need to be replaced. Most transformers are generic, so as long as it is the correct size, and rating, you'll be fine.

HELP: Stopped spinning

It's likely the belt has slipped of and probably needs replacing. You can do this yourself. It will be found under the turntable matt. The trick though is fitting it back on. But you might find the instructions on-line (enter the model number into google search). Some people have even put YouTube video's on how to replace the belt on popular turntables.

Rubber band which turns the turntable has slipped off. I cannot figure out the manner it is supposed to fit. Can I fix it myself? This the third time it's happened. Each repair cost me 90 dollars.

Hi. Yes you can replace the belt yourself. Lift the rubber mat off the platter and notice the two rather large holes in the plater. Put your thumb and forefinger through the holes and pull the platter oof the turntable unit. Place the platter upside down and notice the inner rim which holds the belt. Place the new belt around the inner rim and replace the platter onto the unit. Now, with tweesers, working through one of the large hole, pull the belt onto the spindle motor. Once on, spin the platter by hand and make sure the belt does not slip off. Hope this helps

Turntable turns on, but it when i press play the plate doesnt spin. i noticed it budges like a mm but definetly not working

Turntable Drive Belt

The chances are the rubber drive belt has either broken or stretched so that it has fallen off the drive pulleys.

You will need to gain access to the underside of the turntable to replace it.

With most turntables the process will be to secure the tone arm (a rubber band will do the trick) before turning the whole thing upside down and unscrewing the base.

Replacement drive belts are easily available on the internet. Search by make and model number of your turntable

Turntable won,t run when pluged in the table is brand new

Sounds to me like the bellt has slipped off. To replace, lift the platter off the table. On the inside of the platter you will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helpsmicmor100.jpg

I just bought a set of Gemini 500 the belt has come off and I am usure how and where it fixes back on???

This should be straightforward. Take off the slipmat and lift off the turntable (platter) and you'll see there is a rim on the underside of the platter this is where the belt goes.
Put the belt round that rim and you'll notice a couple of holes in the platter itself. Hold the belt through one of these holes and put it back on the tunrntable while taking notice of the motor position on the deck.
When the platter is in place (still hold belt) and move the platter to the position of the motor pulley and slip it on. Manually turn the deck once or twice to make sure it is in place - DONE! Replace the slipmat.
ENJOY! (:-)

I have just a basic belt drive turntable and the belt fell off.... i need help on how to put it back on

Hi There.
If the belt falls of the platter, it might be an indication that the belt has stretched and is now too large. Or maybe it just fell off for any other reason.
Remove the rubber mat, and pull upwards on the platter to remove it. Sometimes there is a small "C" clip on the center spindle that has to be removed first. (use a small flat screwdriver to remove)
Turn platter over, and put rubber belt around diameter ring on underside of platter. It should be snug, and not fall off when you turn platter over.
Put platter back onto turntable, and spin by hand until you see the motor shaft through one of the holes in platter.
With a pair of tweezers - or crochet hook, put belt over shaft.
You're done.
Put back rubber mat and give it a try.
Good luck,
PS: If there was a "C" clip, you can re-install it - or throw it away.

The belt on my turn table came lose

01- Remove the rubber cushion.
02- Remove the Turntable Platter
03- Place your drive belt around the ridge inside the platter
(Make sure that it is not twisted)
04-Place your Turntable Platter back on the unit
05-rotate your platter until you can see a brass knob through one of the round holes in the turntable. (Your belt must be placed around the brass knob) The best way is to take a toothpick and carefully slide it under the drive belt and then pull it out enough that you can place it around the knob. I had the same problem and the above works. If you still have problems getting it back on contact me 352-377-1828......
