Go to this site as if the belt came off it may have stretched in which case it will re-occur? the belt goes round the inner ring under the turntable platter and onto a little brass capstan on the motor. fit it on the capstan motor first then onto the inner ring on the platter. good luck.

Turntable belt keeps falling off.

Hello, How old is the belt? It is possible that you might need a new belt. Just like a rubberband, it can stretch and with age, it starts losing it's elasticity. If that's the case, then the belt would fall off.
I would check with the manufacture to see if they have replacement belts. They can't be that expensive and it would be worth a try.
Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
Mac =)

Flash won't pop up all the way open.

What has happened is a tiny little spring has broken inside or gotten out of position. Rather than try to fix that, get a thin rubberband (with circular, not flat, cross section) of the proper length as determined as follows. When you turn on the camera, select "force flash", and then half-press the shutter button, you'll be able to lift the flash unit with a fingernail under the crack separating it from the rest of the camera. Once open, put your thin rubberband under the black plastic "ridge" at the front of the flash unit; this ridge is just above the glass-enclased flash tube. As you pull the thin rubberband toward the back of the camera, put a half-rotation into it so that the rubberband crosses over it self (makes an X ) halfway back. One of the X-loops is under the ridge. Put the other X-loop around and under the eyeball-viewing protrusion on the back of the camera. If the rubberband is short enough (but not too short), it will have enough stretchy force to hold the flash unit in the fully open ("up") position. If you're lucky, it may also pop it open when the flash is called for. If not, use your fingernail and just let the thin rubberband hold it in the up position. It works for me.

Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps

Turntable not working

above shows the general installation method for virtually all turntables. If it keeps falling off, you will need a new belt.

Teac turntable belt came off.. help!

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.

Belt Replacement?

ahh! same thing happened to me during a move. quite frustrating, but a simple fix: remove the plate and look at the underside. here you'll see a ring around it, place the belt around that ring. there are 5 holes total, one small in the center, two larger ones to the side, and two rectangular ones on the edge. as you're putting the plate back onto the player, grab the belt through one of the rectangular holes and place that part of the belt around the cylindrical moving post to the upper left the same time as you put the plate back in place. it sounds confusing, but it's simple, i swear. let me know if i can clarify anything for you.
