SOURCE: how to place the belt on the turntable.......

Suggestion:

 

Pull rubber matt off TT. Use a small screw driver to pop off the small black "C" clip at base of steel record post. UNderneath plastic disc you will see the belt, and it loops on the metal post and over to the plastic barrel shaft to its right. Try this:

 

  1. Using Non-gelatin based nail polish remover OR acetone (gotten from any hardware store), and a few Q-Tips, rub the belt inside and out along its entire length until you feel the tacky rubber feeling come back to the belt. You may also see the shiny surface come off the belt as you clean it. The shiney look is from belt slippage and its like a glazing. Also, if you notice any of this black glazing on the two belt posts, clkean them off as well.
  2. If belt broken, replace with new by looping it back around the two posts under plastic TT platter.

If its truely a belt issue these two should solve it.

Hi harryhihatt

Found one for you here

It is type SNP313 and is specific to your particular cartridge fitted to your T/T Where abouts in the world are you, there are a few aftermarket sources I could try for you also. BUT the audio technica is a good brand. I would go for that.

A FixYa rating would be awesome for my solution here, hope you get your vinyl spinning again real soon. :)

SOURCE: Turntable won't turn

There is usually a cotter pin at the center of the platter around the spindle base. This can be removed with a screw driver using a twisting motion. There is a blades worth of space between the clip and the spindle base. Screw driver should be in vertical position. Sometimes the vinyl slip mat must be removed first. Watch that clip, cause it can go flyin. Once the clip is removed, the turntable should let go easily.

I've recently picked up a Pioneer Plx-88z turntable second hand. I know that the player is working ok as putting the arm on the record plays music. The problem is that after a few seconds, no matter what,...


Hi, if it's a second hand device. there must be something wrong with the arm at it's moving axe. if something (dust or broken support) is blocking it, it will return automatically to its rest position to avoid any damage to the fragile and sensible "head"

Electro Brand model number 9801: I played one record, now when I tried to play another the turntable will not rotate. Could the motor have burned out that easily?


Listen carefully with your ear to the turntable when you move the tone arm towards the record. If you can hear the motor running and the turntable is still stationary then the drive belt from motor to turntable has probably fallen off of broken. Lift the turntable, there's normally a metal clip holding the turntable in place, and locate the drive belt.

WHEN I HIT START BUTTON, IT JUST HUMS, DOESN'T START DRUM


Suspect a broken drive belt. Open the top to check. On some models, you need to push two spring clips inward--one on each front corner with a thin putty knife. On others, remove several screws from the back edge and slide the top back. To install a new belt, the front panel must come away from the cabinet to pass the belt over the drum. Remove a lower back panel to place the belt over the motor pulley and spring loaded idler pulley.

Crosley Radio CR246 CD door will not open


Try checking these:

- the CD door motor rubber drive belt (if there is one), it could be either loosened or broken, if so, it needs to be replaced

- the door open/closed sensor switches (contacts), they could be oxydized or damaged, they are located somewhere under the CD tray, possibly at the front end of the unit (depends on brand and model), you need to clean these with some fine sandpaper

It could be something else like the door motor driver IC, the power supply for the motor, a bad capacitor in the motor drive section, a loose connection or a broken wire somewhere, but hopefully, it's just a bad rubber belt or a dirty contact.

Turntable not turning to play record............. power on............ please help my email address - diatmesa@aol.com


This could be many things like the following>

If its a direct drive turntable the motor could be "blown",
or motor electonic speed controller burnt out.
If its a belt drive turntable then the belt could be broken
or stretched and is slipping, or the belt can have dropped of a drive pullety.
Also there are speed control mechanisms to adjust the final speed of the
turntable to the recorded speed of the record like 331/3rpm, 45rpm 75rpm
These speed reducing mechanisims can slip and cause the turntable not to turn..
There are also other mechanical bits that slide and push against each other,
and these can get sticky and the friction increases so much that the power
from the motor drive causes the belts to slip, so you need to identify if a
friction problem exists as well..

If you are carefull you can look your self and find out which one of the above it is.

Be warned there are lethal voltages inside the turntable which can kill you....
so please dont have the power on when making any inspection or adjustments.

Cheers From YUBEUT..
