Re: record player

Does the plastic mat lift up? if so there should be a hole where it can be slipped back on , if it fell off more than likely you will need to replace it and the table should pop off by lifting it up.

Clarinette 107 stereo cassette 8 track and record player. stereo works, but record player will not work. how do i find the problem?

I'm assuming you have a belt driven platter. Lift up the rubber mat, turn the platter it to where the motor spindle is, and see if the belt is still on. For more information or further questions, please visit my website at Thank you.

Cs 7400 needle and belt

The belt could be hard to find. but the needle should be easy enough. Most newer record players use a magnetic cartige. These can usually be found at most electronic stores and are standard.
To replace a magnetic cartrige just unscrew the old one from the record player, unhook the plug or four wires from the cartrige, then plug in the new cartrige the same as the old one was removed
and screw it back in. Magnetic cartriges run from 20 bucks to several hundred depending on the
quality. If just toying with the record player get a ceramic or saphire cartrige these are about twenty bucks. To get the best sound quality a diamond stylus is the best these run from 60 dollars to
several hundred. A good diamond stylus should usually cost around a hundred bucks.

As for the belt check around. Local radio company shops , music shops, and electronic repair shops should be able to order one for you. In the odd case their is no belt to be found for the record player. Or perhaps the record player was a tag sale find and not worth spending alot of money on you can "rubber band" it. Your local radio guy won't reccomend this because the record player will not syncronize as well and the rubber will wear out fast. The secret is finding the right combination of rubber bands you want enough tension to make the record player work but no so much as to bend the small wheel on the motor.

I accidentally turned off the player while a record was playing. Now when I try to play a record, the needle will hover over the record but the turn table will not turn. Any idea on what the problem is and...

The turntable has to go back to its reset position ( Or Start position ). Turn the platter with your hand while the system is on and see if you can get a light click after some revolutions.If so you have rest the system and should play. Or else lift the rubber Matt and see if the belt is still wrapped round the platter. Rotate the platter while you are doing it and at one point you will see the pulley of the motor and the belt very clearly. If its fallen off put the belt back on.

We have a Nexxtech LAB 1100 Automatic Turntable and the belt came off. We're not sure how to put it on. Do you have diagrams?

1. Take off the rubber cover on the platter.
2. Remove the small u shaped clip from the spindle. Use a small flathead screwdriver, and put it in the little gap between the clip and spindle to pull it out.
3. The platter should come free. On the underside of the platter you will see an inner ridge that goes all the way around. You want to put the belt all the way around that so it lies flat.
4. On the record player itself there is a brass knob. It is attached to the motor and is what actually spins to drive the platter. Put the platter back on and line up one of the holes in it over the brass knob. You should be able to put the belt around the knob no problem now.
5. Put the clip and cover back on, and you're done.

I have a Crosley CR248 cd record player/recorder stopped working

If nothing lights up and the whole unit is dead, you may have a blown fuse, a bad power supply, or an electrical outlet that is not giving you power. (Don't laugh, it has happened to all of us... the "broken" thing wasn't plugged in or the outlet it was plugged into was off for some reason). Anyway, if the thing lights up and everything else in the system works except the turntable going 'round, perhaps there is a slipped or broken belt. Most late-model Crosley turntables have been belt drive, so the first thing to look at if everything else works is to press the buttons to start the record playing and then turn the record gently around with your finger on the label, making the whole platter turn clockwise when looking down at the record. Mechanically, the tonearm should cue up and pivot in to the record and it should gently drop onto the record. If you cue the tonearm up and move it in to the end of the last song on the LP and let it back down and turn the record again, it should follow the record's grooves into the center of the record and then lift and "park" the tonearm after everything is done. During the time the needle is on the record and you are turning the record, you should hear the record playing (it will sound bad, because you won't be turning at the right speed!), but that should indicate that the turntable is working mechanically and electrically.
If everything works like I mentioned except the record player won't make the record turn, the next step is to see why it isn't turning. you'll need to lift the plastic platter off the turntable. Most of these have a snap ring (usually a simple spring wire ring that doesn't go all the way around the center spindle. It may have an E-ring instead. Use a small screwdriver to pop this off and be sure to catch it, it might try to pop off the turntable and fly across the room! Lift the platter and you'll probably find a broken belt underneath. You'll have to replace that to make the records spin again. The hardest part is to locate a replacement belt! If nobody near you stocks belts (lol) then online outfits like can be a source. After you replace the belt and put the platter back on the player, remember to replace the snap ring. You might want to lubricate the platter's bearing with an appropriate lubricant, but that is your call as to whether that will be necessary. This is likely a styrene or simple thermoplastic plastic bearing, so be real careful what you use for a lubricant! if you're not sure, don't use anything! Like I said, it's not a difficult repair, it's just hard to find the part these days! Good Luck!

Belt fell off

HI, First remove mat from TT platter. Next hold it with upward pressure while striking centre pin with a sharp tap, (real light instrument) not blow. Next you will see the motor shaft (once TT is removed) note it's position, put belt back onto TT rim, that will be the underside flange, lift belt by one finger away from flange edge and place TT back over spindle while having finger with belt over motor shaft. allow belt to contact with motor. Now belt should be around under platter flange and around motor pulley. If this is correct, power up, if all works replace soft mat and enjoy the music. A word of warning, the belt and stylus/cartridge may need replacement!

Record player belt

Scott, the belt wraps around the bottom of the turntable platter, then put the platter back on your turntable, and you'll have to pinch back a section of the belt and wrap around the brass motor spindle. That's pretty much it!

Good luck.
