My record player (Spirit of St. Louis CD/Cassette/Turntable) still works, but the turntable seems off. The speakers are fine so it's probably a problem with the needle, or the timing belt.

It's defiantly the belt. You can do it yourself. What you need to do is make a note of how it fits NOW - before you remove it (take photo's if you can. This will make it easy to replace it. You will find access to the belt most likely under the turntable matt. Just lift or peel it up. If it is glued you can re-glue it when you have finished, with some Bostick type glue.

When you have removed it take the diameter of the belt in MM and the thickness and search for it on Google. You don't have to be 100% spot on with the diameter measurement.

If you have any problems fitting the belt there are plenty of demonstration video's for belt replacement on YouTube.

How do I turn my turn table on. POWER button is on. What other button do I push. I have phono, mono/st, cd, tape, tuner??

Phono button is turntable selector. May be the turntable switches on when you move the arm to the edge of the record.

Is there any universal remotes that will work with a spirit of st louis radio, cd player, and phonograph? son broke the remote.

There are, but it's..... hit and miss.
The remotes don't cover all remote devices.

You will need the serial # and the brand B-4 you shop for a remote.

Not available from the manufacturer?

Need a needle for a spirit of st louis turntable cd cassette player. do not know what kinnd or model to buy

Do you have the old needle?

If so, you can match them up to charts provided by dealers.
If not, try to find out the make / model of the turntable chassis.
Providing some close up photos that would be a big help.

Need a new turntable needle

Best source for finding these are online.
eBay is perhaps the most price competitive however you really need to know they exact needle for your machine.

If you search, you can find comparison charts to match up your old needle. These are usually the best. If you don't have the old needle, try to figure out what type of cartridge your machine has, then find a needle based on that info.

Worst case you may have to buy a new cartridge and needle.
Be sure to save the make & model numbers!

I can personally vouge for these guys:
they do a great job of helping people find what they need.

I have a Spirit of St. Louis turntable that won't turn.

This model of turntable automatically stops when the needle reaches the center(the end) of the record. The motor should turn back on if you move the arm to the far right of the player, past its resting spot.

Spirit of St. Louis Turntable Art No. 541.809 stylus

You need only find the cartridge model and then search the net for it. That should find the stylus for it. Or you can replace the cartridge with a different make as long as it will fit in the headshell of the arm.

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.
