Question about JVC AL A158BK Turntable
Unplug from the mains power & the amplifier phono socket
To remove the plater: first remove the lid - then after securing the arm, FLIP the whole unit over onto the plater (perhaps resting it on your lap) then remove the all the black screws and the brass ones holding the rubber feet in place.
Inside you will find a tube (actually the "pit" for the spindle) undo the (awkward) retaining screw on the tube. At this pint the spindle is now free and would otherwise slide out onto your lap, so just redo all the screws in reverse order -in particular don't forget the Earth wires.
Then holding onto the turntable and plater - flip the unit back over.
The plater will now lift out freely, taking care to unhook the belt from the drive capstan/motor (on the top left) keep hold of the belt with your two fingers (as you have already lifted off the slip matt ) let the old belt slip free and place the new one on the Flange remembering to hold with two fingers as before. the spindle will slide back into the "Pit" (ensure that the bearing has not fallen out) still holding the belt in place hook it over the capstan and under the speed changing device. Try rotating the plater a few times to ensure nothing is trapped untoward, then replace the slip matt.
Re insert Phono lead and then mains power plug.
Place side one of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" on turntable and enjoy :)
