Re: Belt Loop

Hi, If you take the platter (The Silver Wheel) off you will find that you will have a little tiny motorised wheel, you need to wrap the belt around that little wheel aswell as fitting it aroung the platter. Hope this helps.

How do i install a belt on a philips stereo turntable

To replace a drive belt.
Before starting unplug from mains power source.
1, Remove the rubber platter mat to expose the platter.
2. Put your thumb and forefinger through the two round holes and lift the platter off. You may need to give the centre spindle a light tap (whilst applying upward pressure) with a screwdriver handle or some similar tool that will not leave any marks or damage.
3. Remove the old belt and wipe the platter pulley and motor pulley with an alcohol swab to remove any old belt residue.
4. Place the new belt around the platter pulley making sure t is sitting flat without any twists.
5. Flip platter over the right way up. There are1or 2 larger rectangle shaped cut outs in the platter.
6. Through the cut out pinch up the belt and slip a finger or belt hook between the platter pulley and the belt gripping the belt ready to fit over the motor pulley.
7. Align the centre hole of the platter with the spindle and place platter back into position keeping a grip on the belt.
8. Slip belt over motor pulley and give the platter a light clockwise rotation to ensure the belt is riding correctly.
9. Replace the rubber mat and then run the turntable to ensure correct operation.

Job done.

I just recently bought a new turntable, and when it plays my LPs, the LPs sound somewhat slower than the original. Does the slowness have to do with the belt of the turntable? Is there anyway I can fi

If the 45's play OK then your belt might not be fitted in the right place. If they are both slow, then either the belt is slack or the drive is faulty.

The belt has come off how does it fix back on?

first place the belt onto the bottom of the turntable, it will be kind of snug but not very, replace turntable onto centerpin, remove rubber disc, spin the turntable slowly and look thru the opening at the same time, on the right side you will see a gold colored post, that is what you want to run the belt over, just pull it away fron the turntable and around the post

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.

Lift off the platter mat, then lift off the platter from the spindle - gently.
Underneath the platter is a sub-platter around which you place the belt - it should be held there by the stretch of the belt while you turn the platter back up the right way and place it back on the spindle.
Turning the platter by hand, you should see a small pulley come into view through one of the holes in the platter. You then stretch the belt slightly so that it slides over the pulley. Take care not to twist the belt while doing this.

45's won't play through

I FIGURED IT OUT! Here's how to fix the problem. 1. Remove the c clamp that holds your turntable in the box. Do this slowly so you don't over stretch or break your belt. 2. There are 3 screws holding the entire record player mechanism in the box. Take those out. 3. Look just under where the arm (the thing that holds the needle stylus) attaches to the mechanism. See that long wire rod that runs from that spot to just about the center of the turntable? It's being held at the arm by a little plastic piece that has a screw. The screw needs to be tightened. Once you tighten the screw, that will make is so that the arm has to be moved less to the right to start the record, and more to the left to turn it off. This makes it possible for you to hear the end of your songs! 4. Screw the mechanism back in the box (not too tight, you want those shock mounts to work). 5. To get the belt back on the wheel, first look under the wheel. See the big circle that is about half the size of the wheel? Place the belt around that. 6. Now look further out on the wheel. Do you see a plastic peg (actually 2 pegs....they are across from each other on the wheel)? Stretch the belt to one of the pegs. 7. Place the wheel back on the mechanism with the stretched part over the motor. Now spin the wheel slowly until the belt falls onto the motor. 8. Reattach the c clamp on the wheel and you're all set. Oh, I forgot to mention that you should put a record on and make sure you adjusted that screw under the arm enough. I had to do mine a couple of times. Hope this is helpful! Here's a video I found that better explains how to get the belt back on.
