Place the rubber band around the turntable and put a paper clip, bent up behind the rubber band. Start the turntable on it's spindle and you will be able to view that drive spindle on the right side, slowly pull the rubber band with the paperclip and drop over the drive spindle. remove paperclip and push turntable down seating it and replace the lock snap.

I have the Philco suitcase Turntable CD player. Art No. 841.237. When I got it from my friend, she hadn't given me the ac adapter/power source. When I got it, I assumed she had given me the right one. I...

I don't know whether your philco is the same as my crosley, but I recently had an issue where the record player stopped turning and it bamboozled me to no end. After digging up the manual online, I found out that you had to lift up the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding clip) until it clicked, and voila, the record player started spinning again.

I hope this helps!

Needle replacement They have about the best selection you can find. If you have the old cartridge, find the number on the cartridge and enter it into their search engine. If it's made, they can get it. Hope this helps

Streched CD drive belt has about 450 belt sizes in stock. your unit is too new to have this listing yet as the belt should not have failed already so when you call be ready with the length of the old belt. Don't worry that it is stretched, a new size will be calculated that is about 3-5% shorter.

Power supply

This unit takes a 12V 0.5A DC power supply. Your local Radio Shack sells this type of supply that will plug into the wall. You'll need to make sure that the other end will plug into the turntable, but for the supply, Radio Shack is probably the quickest way.
