Hi Roger It will need a new turn table belt. They are an odd size, but can generally be bought from a good spares part supplier. Let me know where you are and i will be able to steer you to a parts agent that can organise one for you. Thanks for using FixYa. A "fixya" rating will help my profile and create an incentive to get the parts source organised for you;)

regards
Graeme

Linear tracking tonearms probably don't move much under manual control. It would still help if we knew the model number.

Changing the belt on a Technics SL-3 (Linear tracking) turntable


Instructions on installation of your drive belt - this also applies to other brands as well - however this belt is only for the Technics models listed above:
  1. Remove the turntable platter off from the turntable
  2. Remove the old/damage belt
  3. Wrap the new belt underneath the turntable platter - you will see a small lip on the bottom of the platter. Wrap the belt around this lip.
  4. Put the platter back on the turntable
  5. The turntable platter will have small holes, rotate the platter until you see the motor, and the motor shaft.
  6. Pinch the belt, so that it wraps around the motor shaft
  7. Turn on and enjoy!

Turntable will not turn (spin)


It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

JVC L-E5 Turntable arm will not move to the record.


This turntable is linear tracking, meaning that the tonearm slides from side to side. Inside there is a belt coming off a motor and over to a pulley that will move the tonearm from left to right n right to left. If you feel qualified it can be replaced with moderate from the bottom after removing the bottom cover with the power OFF. the belt can be found here.

Problem with technics SL-L20 linear tracking turntable


Not sure what your question is? Linear tracking turntables also have an assortment of gears and pulleys which make it function correctly. Sometimes the drive belt will break, other times, the gears will crack. You will have to open her up, and take a look inside to see if there are any components which are damaged. There may also be grease applied to the gears, which might also be preventing it from moving properly.
