Table top belt

I have a Fisher tabletop record player, Model MT 6410. It is speeding up and slowing down a lot, and i think it needs a new belt. Can anyone recommend where these might be available?

Re: Table top belt

It looks like these cost a little less than $20 US, and are available at several websites and local specialty shops. One site that sells them is

Single speed between new tv and old player may be causing latency. Double check specs on the newest component and make sure they are upward compatible.

Problems with you DVDR 3380 not finding your DVD

As this recorder get older and with frequent use it will sometimes not be able to spin the DVD if it can't do this the play head will just move up and down until the DVD starts to spin. If it doesn't start then you will receive the error UNKNOWN DISC. You will no that this is the error you have as you will hear the DVD player clunking every 2 seconds as the head tries to read the DVD.

This actually means the a drive motor is not able to overcome the spindle and DVD weight combined it really does need a new motor fitting.


If you can't afford a new player remove the top drill a small hole about the size of pen top just above the white spindle top (drill anywhere SHOWN IN RED) and replace the top,now when the DVD player has trouble give it a nudge with a plastic pen top I use a biro lid and this will tease the spindle to start moving just enough to overcome the inertia

NOTE: this is a temporary fix but it really does work and if you think that this is a bit drastic then look underneath there is a 1/2 " slotted hole near the front that is the manual release from the tray if it gets stuck and they put this in and its been there probably without you even knowing.!!

DVD tray will not open

Sounds like the DVD player is broken. The belt inside must need to be oiled or replaced. With cheaper DVD systems, they tend to break quicker. Because this was an older model that's no longer being made, I would just buy a new one. Problems like this are going to reoccur over and over again, no matter how hard you try to fix it. You'll fix it, then it'll break again. They used plastic construction and plastic breaks down over time. So, grab a screw a driver, wedge it into the DVD player and break it to get your disc out. I'd start at the bottom corner of the drive to avoid scratching the disc. There are a couple companies that make quality DVD players.

My record player skips and i don't think it has anything to do with the records themselves. i try adjusting the tone arm but it does not help. also i have been noticing that it slows down and the speeds up...

What make/model?
Under what conditions does it skip?
You adjusted the tonearm (tracking force?) using what procedure and what measurement?
Is it on a solid surface away from sources of vibration (including speakers)?

New Transformers movie won't play

I have the same exact problem with that dvd player. So far i am not aware of any solutions yet. I called phillips and they said they will try to create new firmware uprgade for the dvd player to fix the problem and they told me to keep an eye out for it on the website. I installed the most recent firmware too but that didnt help at all. The only other solution i see is maybe downloading the entire movie from pirate website and burn the dvd files onto a high quality disc at slow speed with a good dvd writing program.

How can i connect a record player to my stereo.

you have to get a pre amp that will boost the 5mv phono signal to 300 millivolts to drive the aux inputs.
it also has to have RIAA equalization,as all albums have a -60db curve 1khz and down to reduce the stylus travel of the record groove.
without the equalization,the grooves would have a 4" modulation.
if you amplify the record player signal flat gain,it will have no bass at all,just the way it was recorded. radio shack used to sell a 9v powered unit back in the eighties,see if you can find one.
most new stereos do not have a phono input.

I need a belt for a fisher DAC-145 turntable

above is a generic video that applies to almost all belt driven turntables including yours that will show how to install the belt and a few other things. the website shown in the video lists your belt under the "find my player" button on the left side of that site. look for DAC-145A listing. your old belt or the belt path should measure about 30-31 inches or so.

were you able to play copied dvd's on this unit ? if yes then check setting on the dvd menu for things like DVD REGION and DVD playback speed and types of DVD playable, this is quite likely as i ha this problem on a pioneer model previously.

do those copied dvds no longer play on the same unit ? and you have tried them again on another unit or dvd player ?

rather i suspect problems with the DVD burn itself and its compatibility with the dvd player you are palying them on now (asuming settings in DVD enu are correct as loosely outlined above in point 1)

it may be that if this is a new dvd player than the one you played them on before, the dvd's may have to be closed in a certain way using your burning software so that they are playable on standard dvd players.
please also check that region is not an issue and that the recording speed of the dvd (the rip speed) is not too high or too low for your unit, as this data is stored on the written dvd and is responsible for the quality of the palyback data.
