Question about Pioneer PL-990 Turntable

1 Answer

Turntable will not turn. Belt that turns the turntable is corroded. Wanted to try rubberband but could only find one metal post (that turns when needle arm is brought across) to put the band around. Where do I attach the other end of the band?

View or download the manual for the PL-990, and look at the image on page 4. The instructions for belt replacement is on the following page (5).

Please rate my reply if helpful - good luck!

    BTW - the rubber band replacement will in all likelihood not work, or work for very long. You should get and install the correct belt instead.

Turntable belt keeps falling off.


Hello, How old is the belt? It is possible that you might need a new belt. Just like a rubberband, it can stretch and with age, it starts losing it's elasticity. If that's the case, then the belt would fall off.
I would check with the manufacture to see if they have replacement belts. They can't be that expensive and it would be worth a try.
Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
Mac =)

Turntable does not function


Turntable Belt... Try to picture this, remove the c-clip holding the platter to the center spindle. Remove the platter and turn it bottom side up, place the rubber belt around the platter and fix it to the little post sticking up on the outer-edge surface. The little post holds the belt to the platter while you turn the platter over and put it on so that the post points right over the motor pulley. Turn the platter by hand either clockwise or counter-CW and the belt will pop off of the post and land on the motor pulley. One drop of oil on the center spindle for lube and fasten the e-clip back on.

Fixing turntable


go to this site as if the belt came off it may have stretched in which case it will re-occur? http://www.needledoctor.com/Online-Store/Turntable the belt goes round the inner ring under the turntable platter and onto a little brass capstan on the motor. fit it on the capstan motor first then onto the inner ring on the platter. good luck.

My turntable does not work. Is there a lock ?


Try this - GENTLY move the phono arm to the RIGHT until you hear a click (of course, do this after you turn on the power via the volume dial and set the other dial to"phono"). Doing this turns on the turntable when you haven't used it in awhile. This worked for us, hope it works for you.

If it doesn't work, you can check the belt by removing the tiny clip at the center post and gently lift the turntable platform/tray to peek at the motor and belt underneath. The pulley is on the right at the 2 o'clock position, the belt should be in contact with it.

Belt has come off do not know how to put back on


Take the metal platter off the center post. Flip the metal platter over & put the belt around the inner circle on the underside of the metal platter. Then put the metal platter (right side up) on the center post. Turn it until you can see the motor post (upper left corner) through the big opening in the metal platter. Pull the belt out from the platter to string it around the motor post, making sure it's seated in the groove.

Have a teac p-a 400 turntable,that was just given to me. i see a rubber pad that goes on top of turntable, the turntable made out of metal, and a oversized rubber band. I put the rubber band around the...


I'm guessing that the belt is too large (stretched). Normally it should be small enough to stay on the platter itself. Install the platter and place the belt around the motor hub (white plastic), If the belt is too loose, it will just sit and not turn the platter. Try a new belt first as that is the least expensive option to try.

Keep us posted.
