Turntable. The turntable on my player will not turn. Opened it up and found the belt was cracked and not getting enough friction. Ok, problem found, but, where do I find a new belt?

Measure the total length of the belt, and I presume it is square. approximate the thickness and contact turntableneedles.com, they have about 450 belt sizes in stock.

The turntable isn't turning on one of our units and the cassette player isn't working on another. Where can they be fixed? Just bought needles for both.


My turntable quit and I found out it had a broken drive belt. Mine was easy to get into but can't buy a new one They don't make mine any more. I suspect your player could have a broken belt as well. I put mine in the garbage. No parts and going to cost more than new to repair.

My turntable does not work on a audio component system


Is the motor on the turntable spinning - wiring misconnected?
If motor is running then th epower is not being transmitted to the platter by either a belt drive or a pulley drive.. The belt or pulley has to be replaced to restore the missing friction

After 14 years my Technics SL-BD22 Turntable has a disfunction The electric motor turns slow.


Your turntable is probably belt driven so most likely motor is turning okay but belt is slipping.
They are easy to change, first just lift rubber mat on platter and you should be able to see the belt through a access hole in the platter.

I have a JVC L-L1 turntable. The linear arm is quite sluggish and is actually making records skip. Any ideas other that replacing the motor?


I have this exact turntable. If the tone arm looks like it's not moving or not moving fast enough, it will make the record skip. It is NOT the turntable drive belt that is bad. It IS a 2nd belt that makes the tone arm assembly move. That belt is only about 1 3/4" diameter. I have yet to find one for mine. Turntable drive belts are readily available, but not this belt for some reason.

Optimus lab 1100 Turntable won't turn!


The mechanics in your arm postion is throwing the switch. A mechanical postion switch has sliped out of postion, a arm from the toner arm post has moved to an encorrect postion, or if your turntable has a multi-album play abilty your 'next to play record' post postion sensor switch is out of postion. Last or first is your belt could fool ya. Your belt may have a weak spot on it in turn no friction underload.

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..

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......
