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......

1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

I have a Teac LP200 and the turntable will no longer turn when I lift and move the arm over. Is there a belt to replace? How does one access it?


Hi,
your unit has "The efficient belt-drive system provides accurate play and control" and normally the belt lasts for long time ..i.e at least 5 years..
If you sure that it is belt ,you need to take the turntable disc (should be a security pin in the middle ) than you can access underneath of disc or some models needs to access from bottom of the turntable ,inside the receiver..
just in case ,if you need detailed user manual in pdf format pls visit he URL below..
Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :) Thanks

Turntable won,t run when pluged in the table is brand new


Sounds to me like the bellt has slipped off. To replace, lift 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

I just bought a aiwa turntable & stereo at yard sale. the old lady said she never used it but yet the turntable will not turn. i've looked over the manual and can't find any troubleshooting. can you...


Hi Denise, I am in the consumer electronics repair industry. It may be as simple as this... Lift up the MAT on the turn table. This is the black rubber covering that you place the record on. Look through the holes in the plastic turntable (rotate if necessary) until you see the motor/pulley shaft sticking up (brass color). The turntable belt may have dislodged from this pulley. If you see the black flat rubber belt near here, just put it around the pulley again. Make sure it is not twisted and sits flat. Spin table by hand to be sure it is seated properly.
Now you may have to remove the plastic turntable itself if you can't see the belt right away. In this case, remove the C-clip with a flat screwdriver (be sure not to lose it) from the record center post. Lift the turntable plate up shaft. Check to see if the belt is still partially around the plate. You may be able to just see enough to wrap the belt around the motor pulley now. If you need to take the plate off completely, then just place the belt first around the groove on the plate and finese the belt around the motor pulley. Now seat the plate, replace the C-clip and place the MAT back on and it should be good to go.
I had this same problem on a new turntable I got for free. Good luck : )

Turntable belt is off.


Under the felt of the turning platter section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

Arm trouble


If its automatic unit, it need belt to complete its mechanical cycle of loading and unloading its arm. You can check arm movement by spinning its table by hand.

Belt


On the bottom of the silver platter, there is a round lip.put the belt around that. Then put the platter back on the table and turn the wheel until you get to the motor, which is the gold pin on the left, and put the belt over that.
