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 :)

Why doesn't my turn table turn?


If this is about a record player then I would check the belt. You will have to remove the platter to get to it. Some platters have holes in them for accessing the belt without removing it. To see which you have you will have to remove the mat on the turntable.

If the turntable has a two-piece platter, Lift off the outer platter and place the belt around the inner platter and motor pulley.

If the turntable has a one-piece platter, lift off the whole patter, place the belt around the inner drum. There will be a hole in the platter's top through which you can reach a finger to stretch the belt so that the belt can be placed around the motor pulley as you put the platter back in place.

How to put the turntable belt on


Good day. I assume that you have lifted the platter off the table. On the inside of the platter you will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helpsmicmor100.jpg

How to lift up the JVC L-a21 platter for changing the belt? Thank you in advance.


I am not familiar with this exact turntable, but on most belt driven turntables, the platter should simply pop off. There are usually holes in the platter once you remove the rubber mat. Put your fingers in the holes and pull up while pressing down on the center spindle, and the platter should pop off. Sometimes you have to put on a little force to get it to come off.
The holes in the platter are to allow you to attach the new belt to the motor spindle once you put the platter back on with the new belt.

JVC L-A21 turn table belt installation


Lift the mat from the platter. Lift the platter off the spindle - it just pulls off upwards. Wrap the belt around the sub-platter underneath. If the belt is not stretched, it should stay there by friction as you replace the platter onto the spindle. Rotate the platter by hand until the motor pulley appears through the large hole on the front left hand side, and then gently pull the belt over the pulley, taking care not to twist it as you do so. Replace mat.

The belt on my turn table came lose


01- Remove the rubber cushion.
02- Remove the Turntable Platter
03- Place your drive belt around the ridge inside the platter
(Make sure that it is not twisted)
04-Place your Turntable Platter back on the unit
05-rotate your platter until you can see a brass knob through one of the round holes in the turntable. (Your belt must be placed around the brass knob) The best way is to take a toothpick and carefully slide it under the drive belt and then pull it out enough that you can place it around the knob. I had the same problem and the above works. If you still have problems getting it back on contact me 352-377-1828......
