  • Anonymous Jul 19, 2008

    Solution offered not worth much. The problem is the PLATTER DOES NOT LIFT OFF LIKE MOST TURNTABLES. So specifically, does anyone know how to remove this turntable??

The trick is to lift up on the platter (tothat metal on metal feel that you had) while simtaneously "lightly" tapping on the top of the shaft with a hammer. Trust me it will work as just changed my belt.
Hope that helps.

JVC L-A10: Replaceing belt - Sorry for the delay, but only just found out myself. Do not try to take off a turntable by tapping of hammering. Turn the turntable over to its side or back and undo all the screws underneath that hold the top to the base. When open you will notice the base of the spindle underneath, there is a very small phillips head screw holding the spindle in place - loosen the screw and the platter will pull out. Then you can replace the belt and put everything back together.

Here is the belt type:

http://www.turntableneedles.com/browseproducts/23.6-Inch-Flat-Belt--Medium.html

Most turntables - lift off the platter - remove the old belt - clean running surfaces - stretch new belt around bottom flange of platter - either thruough a hole in the platter or just holding the belt pinched loop the belt around the motor drive spindle or pulley and lower the platter onto the centre bearing.

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.

    AL-A1 turntable won t turn


    take the platter & belt back off, then check to see if the motor spins, if it does the belts the wrong size or put on wrong, if it doesn't spin then you better get your butter & jam out, to put on your toast.

    I have a JVC L-L1 turntable. The linear arm is quite sluggish and is actually making records skip. Any ideas other that replacing the motor?


    I have this exact turntable. If the tone arm looks like it's not moving or not moving fast enough, it will make the record skip. It is NOT the turntable drive belt that is bad. It IS a 2nd belt that makes the tone arm assembly move. That belt is only about 1 3/4" diameter. I have yet to find one for mine. Turntable drive belts are readily available, but not this belt for some reason.

    How to replace the belt on jvc l-f130 turntable


    You will have to lift the platter section off the unit itself. Check for the spindle motor turing the table and lay the belt out around the spindle motor. Refit the platter and work the belt around the inside of the platter through the two large holes in the tray.

    How to replace belt in jvc turntable


    I just got a JVC turntable from a thrift shop today and as soon as I got it home the belt broke. I had a replacement but couldn't figure out how to install it. After taking off the back, which is about 4 screws plus the 4 feet and the grounding screw, I saw a very tiny set screw on the post where the spindle obviously is. I removed this and the table came right off so I could replace the belt. I couldn't get the tiny set screw back but figured I didn't need it and if I ever have to replace another belt, I won't have to take the back off anyway. I hope this helps.
