Is the dust cover on the Technics SL-B101 , the same as the Technics Sl- D303?


It took me about an hour to find this info for you. Problem is that you'd be taking someone's word for it. The answer came from a turntable forum where another person asked what other dust covers fit the pictured turntable (model SL-B303) Several people responded and if you click on this link: , look at the bottom right hand corner of every response on that page.(they are numbered) and you'll see that #1 has the question about the cover for the SL-B303. Scroll down to response #6.
This person says that the SL-B101 and the SL-D303 use the same cover.
Where did he get his info from? It's a risk but if you find another person that says the same thing, chances are it's the right answer. Wish TECHNICS had some sort of official release so that everyone could see what covers fit which turntables.

Good luck

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.

  • 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.

    Dust cover falls down

    You'll have to flip your turntable upside down on a pillow or beanbag, remove the feet & all the screws including the harder plastic underside to get to the hinges where by which you can estimate whether there was wear & tear & needs replacing or whether it was a simple fix by just tightening up the screws that hold the hinges in place.

    I've just bought a new lid for my 1200 Technics turntable, but can't work out how to attach it and don't want to break anything trying first.

    All the new one dont have the hinges any more....The just ahve the rubber feet on the corners and it will just sit there...The older ones with the hinges will have a part sticking up..Slide the male part from the tables hinge into the female part of the hinge on the cover.

    All parts are discontinued for this model. The SL1200MK2 dust cover will not fit this turntable. You can actually have a dust cover made rather simply and cheaply (depending on where you live). Just take the dimensions to a PLEXIGLASS or even a GLASS shop. You can even purchase the Plexiglass yourself, cut it, and glue it together. I would suggest getting it professionally done. You can use any high impact plexiglass. Get something that is resistant to scratches and discoloring.

    It should be fairly obvious. The only thing I can think of it that the hinges are missing (these slot in to both the lids and the turntable and are easily lost if someone has been using them with the lids off).

    If they are missing, it certainly would make it difficult to figure out!
