Through the 2 holes on the platter, lift the platter up. Take the belt, flip the platter over, and stretch it around the center ring. Flip the platter back over and turn to so one of the holes is over the spinning motor. With your finger or with a blackstick, stretch it back onto the motor head.

Also check the belt for wear....that should do it.

Keep me posted.

Need a new belt

Measure the old belt, make certain you know how it fits before removing. You need the diameter and width in MM. You don't need to be spot on with these! Put the results with the words "Turntable belt XXmm by XXmm" into Google.

I have a Teac LP200 and the turntable will no longer turn when I lift and move the arm over. Is there a belt to replace? How does one access it?

your unit has "The efficient belt-drive system provides accurate play and control" and normally the belt lasts for long time ..i.e at least 5 years..
If you sure that it is belt ,you need to take the turntable disc (should be a security pin in the middle ) than you can access underneath of disc or some models needs to access from bottom of the turntable ,inside the receiver..
just in case ,if you need detailed user manual in pdf format pls visit he URL below..

Hi, the belt on our Teac Turntable has come off while moving to new home. Can I get manual that shows how to put it back on?

If you open the top lid of your turntable, you will see a black rubber disc that sits on the pladder, it should come off revealing the metal pladder, you should see holes that will show your belt and the turntable motor when pladder is rotated. In order to put the belt back on you must remove the pladder, but before you do check to see if there is a C clip holding it down, after removing the clip the pladder should come off, put the belt on the inner rim of the pladder, now slowly work the pladder on the spindle make sure one of the pladder holes allows you to see the motor, put a small blunt object between the belt and the inner pladder and use it to stretch the belt to slip over motor then push the pladder down and rotate it making sure the belt is turning with the motor, next replace the rubber disc and finally the C clip if it is present.

Just measure the diameter of the old one and it's width. Then put these measurements (in mm please) into Google and and the words "TURNTABLE BELT " and you should find one. Belts are not maker specific.

Turntable belt is off.

Under the felt of the turning platter section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

Turntable won't turn


Without any other information (and assuming you've checked to make sure there is power to the turntable and that it is turned on), the likely culprit is the belt drive of your turntable. Most, but not all, turntables have a "belt" that looks like a big rubber band on the underside of the turntable that connects the turntable itself to the drive motor. If the band has slipped out of place, stretched too far from age or usage, or broken, the turntable won't turn. To find out if this is your problem, gently lift the "platter" straight up (it should easily slide back into place) and visually see if the "rubber band" is in place. If it is stretched too far or broken, a new one should be availble form Teac or your local electronics supplier. If, by chance, you have a direct-drive turntable (unlikely), the problem will probably need professional work.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!

On the bottom of the silver platter, there is a round lip.put the belt around that. Then put the platter back on the table and turn the wheel until you get to the motor, which is the gold pin on the left, and put the belt over that.
