Are you serious? All you have to do is get a tiny screwdriver and slide the thing off in the logical way (away from where the "horseshoe" is open and horizontal to the platter.

How to remove Platter on JVC L-A120 Turntable


Hi Jeff...
The platter on the JVC LA-10 does not come off as most turntable platters do. It is attached to the spindle with a Philips head screw.

Here are the steps:
Remove dust cover from turntable. Unscrew hinges and lift.

  • Secure tonearm to prevent stylus damage.

  • Turn the turntable on its side and remove screws that hold the top to its base. Remove platter by unscrewing the bottom plate from the turntable. The spindle bearing is held in place with a Philips head screw. Loosen it and the platter will separate easily from the spindle.

  • Loop replacement band around the pulley cylinder in the motor. Replace platter and bottom plate. Tighten spindle screw. Test the new belt by turning the platter clockwise two or three rotations. Belt should fit snugly and turn with little resistance.

    Tip

    Installing a belt on a plastic turntable


    Remove the c-clip holding the platter to the center spindle. Remove the platter and turn it bottom side up, place the rubber belt around the platter and fix it to the little post sticking up on the outer-edge surface. The little post holds the belt to the platter while you turn the platter over and put it back on so that the post points right over the motor pulley. Now turn the platter by hand either clockwise or counter-CW and the belt will pop off of the post and land on the motor pulley. One drop of oil on the center spindle for lube and fasten the e-clip back on. "I like that old-time rock and roll"...

    How to change the belt on most turntables


    Replacing the belt on any turntable requires removing the platter. There are various schemes to keep them on but most involve a "C" clip clipped in a groove just above the platter on the spindle. You may have to remove the rubber mat to access the clip. Most rubber mats are glued down but can be pried off with patience and some force with a 1" scraper. Once the mat and platter are removed the belt can be discarded and a new one installed. Replace the platter. There will be one or possibly two oblong holes in the platter. Using a flat screwdriver hold tension on the belt and rotate the platter to get the belt around the drive and continue with turning the platter until you are sure the belt is around the drive ring on the platter and the motor spindle. You can tell because the platter will have some resistance due to spinning the motor. Reassemble the mat. It can just be placed on the platter. Unless you are going to run it upside down, which wouldn't work, it won't fall off. You are done and the unit should work like a new one. If you haven't purchased a belt this website www.mcmelectronic.com has belts for most units and also a variety pack of different length belts which should have one which will fit.

    I just got this turntable, and the platter has a wobble.


    First check that the adjusting screws that stop the turntable moving about during transport are fully open.
    Lift the turntable matt and move the platter by hand. You should be able to see that everything is OK or anything that looks odd. If you still can't see anything wrong remove the platter. First make a note of the belt fits. Take photo's if it looks complicated.
    The platter will be fixed from the spindle. It might have a horseshoe clip holding it. They are tricky to get off, but try. If the spindle has a cover, remove it. If it is glued you can force it off. You can re-glue with Bostick later.
    Examine the platter to see if it is bent!

    Platter warped


    Most platters are fixed by a horseshoe clip under the centre spindle. You might have to force-ably remove what is around the centre area to get access to the clip. You can glue it back on if the platter itself is fine and not warped. If it is warped it would be cheaper to get a new deck than search for a new platter.

    I HAVE A PIONEER PL-30 TURNTABLE AND I NEED TO REMOVE THE 'PLATTER' IN ORDER TO REPLACE THE BELT. THERE IS NO CLIP TO REMOVE. HOW DO I GET THE 'PLATTER' OFF. AGAIN THERE IS NO CLIP FOR REMOVAL.


    Pull up on the platter with one hand after you remove the rubber mat. Then hit the center post with a rubber mallet while pulling up on the platter with on hand just hard enough to release the platter from the post. The platter should come off.

    Turntable does not function


    Turntable Belt... Try to picture this, remove the c-clip holding the platter to the center spindle. Remove the platter and turn it bottom side up, place the rubber belt around the platter and fix it to the little post sticking up on the outer-edge surface. The little post holds the belt to the platter while you turn the platter over and put it on so that the post points right over the motor pulley. Turn the platter by hand either clockwise or counter-CW and the belt will pop off of the post and land on the motor pulley. One drop of oil on the center spindle for lube and fasten the e-clip back on.

    Merely take off the horseshoe clip from spindle(under rubber) and remove turntable. Put the belt around the circular raised area in the middle of the platter and reinstall platter over spindle. align one of the holes in the platter with the brass spindle and just pull belt around spindle.
