How to remove Platter on JVC L-A120 Turntable

Hi Jeff...
The platter on the JVC LA-10 does not come off as most turntable platters do. It is attached to the spindle with a Philips head screw.

Here are the steps:
Remove dust cover from turntable. Unscrew hinges and lift.

  • Turn the turntable on its side and remove screws that hold the top to its base. Remove platter by unscrewing the bottom plate from the turntable. The spindle bearing is held in place with a Philips head screw. Loosen it and the platter will separate easily from the spindle.

    My Crosley Radio CR6007A-MA Recording Tech Turntable squeaks with each revolution is makes. I want to know how I could fix it.

    I'm not familiar with this specific turntable but there are some general tests that you can try. As with any problem try to identify the source of the problem by working through an elimination process.
    1. Does the problem occur at all speeds or just one, which would indicate an issue with the belt drive system.
    2. Does it squeak continuously or only at certain points as the turntable rotates? Put a marker (a lump of blue-tac would work well) towards the edge of the turntable and note the point(s) where it squeaks.
    3. Rotate the turntable by hand with the power switched off, vary the speed you rotate it at. Can you feel the squeak as well as hear it?
    4. Is the turntable on a level surface and is the turntable itself level (parallel) with the base - if it is not this might suggest that one of the suspension mounts has failed. Peer under the edge of the turntable all round to make sure it is not rubbing against the frame / base.
    5. The turntable is driven by a belt system off a separate electric motor. Usually these motors are hung from the frame on a sort of elastic band arrangement. These bands become perished and can break or just stretch unevenly, which causes the motor to hang at a funny angle. Sometimes this can result in either the pulleys rubbing against the side of the frame (would normally be a fairly continuous squeak). At lower speed settings (e.g. 33 rpm) this may also cause the edge of the drive belt to rub against the bottom of the larger (45 rpm) pulley above it. If you can't find a supplier of the correct replacement motor suspension band you may be able to fix it with ordinary rubber bands but it may take a bit of fiddling to get the motor perfectly level at exactly the right height.
    6. With the motor running and the turntable rotating gently press on the rim of the turntable with your finger as a brake to slow the turntable down slightly. Does the squeak increase or decrease in volume or pitch? If it gets louder or higher pitched that probably means that the drive belt is slipping slightly (in which case some records may sound a bit slow when you play them). You can either replace the belt or purchase a can of 'belt dressing' spray (obtainable from most good tool shops) and apply a light coating to the inside surface of the drive belt - don't over do it. The best way to do this is by rotating the turntable by hand whilst gently squirting a little of the spray onto the belt close to the point where it goes on to the pulley on the turntable drive spindle. Take care not to get the spray on any other moving parts or the electrical components as it is sticky and hard to clean off. If this is the problem you may need to re-treat periodically.
    7. The motor and belt drive system may be accessible either by lifting off the turntable deck (platter) itself or by turning the whole thing upside down (make sure you secure the pick-up arm before you turn it over!) and unscrewing the bottom of the case. Some turntable platters have viewing holes in them which are revealed by lifting off the rubber mat.
    8. Gently slip the belt off the pulley wheels on the motor and on the bottom of the turntable spindle. Check the pulleys for any lumps of dirt or fluff that may be causing problems. Also check that the drive belt is clean with no lumps or flat shiny spots. If the belt is worn replace it.
    9. If appropriate turn the turntable up the right way again.
    10. Rotate the turntable by hand. If it still squeaks the problem is in the turntable bearing and may easily be solved with a bit of lubrication. Some manufacturers will supply a little tube of special grease. If you don't have this a bit of Vaseline /petroleum jelly will do quite nicely. Don't use a silicon based lubricant like WD40 as this will dry out again over time.
    11. Try rotating the motor spindle by hand - if it squeaks there may be a problem with the motor bearing. These are not usually serviceable and will need replacing.
    12. With some turntables the belt runs through some little guide wheels between the pulleys on the motor and the turntable drive spindle. These may need lubricating with a little VERY light oil. Sewing machine oil is perfect for this. Only use a tiny drop applied to the axle of the guide wheels with a very fine paint brush. Don't use to much or use anything in a spray can as it might get on the surface of the pulley wheels where it will contaminate the drive belt and cause it to slip.

    The turntable no longer turns but everyting else is fine. Is there any way for us to repair this?

    Depends ... you don't mention the make or model.

    Remove the cover. You may be able to see the belt. Sometimes, the part that slips into the driven pulley breaks. Take it apart and see what you find ...

    Hello My turntable do not spin

    This turntable is a belt driven type. The belt wraps around the underside of the platter and the drive motor spindle. If the belt has slipped off, broken or is so old that it is slipping - the platter will not turn. Usually you can remove the rubber cover on the top of the platter to use access openings beneath to put the belt back on.

    The turntable product brochure, owner's manual and related info is available from Pioneer, here.

    I hope this helps!

    Rotel rp1000 turntable rplaying too slow, new belt


    Check that your new belt is not too tight as this will slow the motor down as it tries to turn the platter. I would also suggest a little light oil (sewing machine oil is ideal - NOT WD40) on the motor spindle shaft where it goes through the motor itself it may be a little dry.

    Clean off any gunk from the rim where the belt turns the platter and do the same on the pulley on the motor. Get some de-oxit (expensive but good) or SERVISOL to clean the speed change switch too.

    Turntable not turning - ribbon under turntable dislodged.

    Sounds like your belt is shot. Go to They have belts and belt kits which will solve your problem. To replace the belt remove the platter. May mean removing a circlip off the stem. Then lift the platter up, remove the bad belt and install the new belt. Generally the belt has to be reinstalled on the platter by holding it with a screwdriver while you turn the platter slowly and work the belt on. If I didn't already say, remove the rubber cover on the platter. It will reveal a hole in the platter where you need to do the alignment work. Let me know how you make out.

    How to replace the belt on jvc l-f130 turntable

    You will have to lift the platter section off the unit itself. Check for the spindle motor turing the table and lay the belt out around the spindle motor. Refit the platter and work the belt around the inside of the platter through the two large holes in the tray.

    Fisher turntable mc-715 has power but table won't turn. it's able to move manually.

    What's likely is that the belt that drives the turntable has snapped. The MC-715 is a mid-late 80's model, so the rubber the belt is made of has had it. A google search for mc-715 belt will turn up a source for a new belt, which you can install fairly easily. There should (though it may be missing) be a hub in center of the platter that you turn to allow playback of 45's. This is removable, simply fit a flathead screwdriver into the side where the raised lines are and pry it away. If it's already missing, then don't worry about it.

    You should now see the spindle (silver metal axle/pole that the platter revolves around). At the base of the spindle there will be a black metal circlip. This holds the platter down, and it will have to be removed. Use the flathead screwdriver again to pry it off. You should be able to do this by putting the tip of the screwdriver into one of the two openings on the circlip and using a twisting/prying motion. Once this is off, simply lift the platter off. Remove what's left of the old belt. Even if the old belt is still in one piece, chances are it's too stretched out to be of any use anymore. You will see a track for the belt on the underside of the platter. Put the new belt around this. It will be too loose be a little, but this is to allow for it to stretch and reach the motor spindle (the brass colored spindle off to the right on the now-exposed inner workings.

    Along the rim of the underside of the platter you'll see a little plastic peg. Hook the belt onto this. Now, put the platter back on the silver spindle in such a way that the triangular hole where the belt is pulled away from its track by the bit you hooked onto that peg goes over the brass spindle. Once it's down and secure (you may have to wiggle it a little in order for the little gear on the underside to line up correctly) you should turn the platter clockwise. In theory, this should cause the brass spindle to pull the belt off the little peg and onto itself, thus connecting the belt with the drive motor. At this point, move the needle off its stand to see if the belt connected. If not, just repeat the belt-peg-spindle part. It may take a few tries, but it will work sooner or later. After it's turning properly, just replace the circlip that holds the platter down (you'll probably want a pair of pliars to push it on, it's a stiff little thing), and replace the plastic 45 adapter.

    Good luck!

    Turntable does not turn round

    Have you put the drivebelt around the motor spindle - the instructions don't make it too clear. The belt is already on the underside of the turntable, you just need to put a finger through the hole in the turntable, pull the belt out and hook it over the motor spindle. After that, if you've pressed the power button (back right), you should see the 33rpm light come on. If it's on, press either of the 2 big buttons on the left hand side and the motor should turn. You can check by looking through the hole in the turntable & see if the motor spindle is turning. If none of the above work then you have a faulty unit.

    Turntable will not turn

    There is really nothing else to it. If the drive belt is in tact, and properly installed, and the spindle motor is rotating properly, your turntable should rotate. There's nothing else that rotates the platter. Just make sure the belt is wrapped around the spindle motor.
