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.

    Platter warped


    Most platters are fixed by a horseshoe clip under the centre spindle. You might have to force-ably remove what is around the centre area to get access to the clip. You can glue it back on if the platter itself is fine and not warped. If it is warped it would be cheaper to get a new deck than search for a new platter.

    I HAVE A PIONEER PL-30 TURNTABLE AND I NEED TO REMOVE THE 'PLATTER' IN ORDER TO REPLACE THE BELT. THERE IS NO CLIP TO REMOVE. HOW DO I GET THE 'PLATTER' OFF. AGAIN THERE IS NO CLIP FOR REMOVAL.


    Pull up on the platter with one hand after you remove the rubber mat. Then hit the center post with a rubber mallet while pulling up on the platter with on hand just hard enough to release the platter from the post. The platter should come off.

    Replace belt


    To replace a drive belt.

    1, Remove the rubber platter mat to expose the platter.
    2. Put your thumb and forefinger through the two round holes and lift the platter off. You may need to give the center spindle a light tap (whilst applying upward pressure) with a screwdriver handle or some similar tool that will not leave any marks or damage.
    3. Remove the old belt and wipe the platter pulley and motor pulley with an alcohol swab to remove any old belt residue.
    4. Place the new belt around the platter pulley making sure t is sitting flat without any twists.
    5. Flip platter over the right way up. There are1or 2 larger rectangle shaped cut outs in the platter.
    6. Through the cut out pinch up the belt and slip a finger or belt hook between the platter pulley and the belt gripping the belt ready to fit over the motor pulley.
    7. Align the center hole of the platter with the spindle and place platter back into position keeping a grip on the belt.
    8. Slip belt over motor pulley and give the platter a light clockwise rotation to ensure the belt is riding correctly.
    9. Replace the rubber mat and then run the turntable to ensure correct operation.

    Job done.

    I had to order a belt for my turntable that was disinagrated so I dont know how to put the new one on. could you please either show me a picture of how it goes on or explain


    First, remove the rubber mat (platter cover)
    Next, there should be 2 oval shaped slots in the aluminum platter.
    Carefully rotate platter until you can see the drive motor pulley through one of these slots. Lift straight upwards on platter to remove it. On the underneath side of the platter, there is a surface that is approximately half the diameter of the platter. Place the new belt around this surface, ensuring that it is not twisted.
    Fun part.....Turn the platter right side up and insert index finger through on of the oval slots. Slip belt over finger between belt and platter "pulley" surface. Carefully reinstall platter with finger/belt slot lining up with drive motor pulley. Slip belt over drive motor pulley and remove finger, making sure the belt is not twisted. Now, manually rotate the platter to check for proper belt movement.....if all is well, reinstall rubber mat (platter cover) This concludes belt installation.

    My drive belt on my optimum turn table has come of how do i put it back on?


    Hi mcmassous
    Refitting the belt is easy.
    1.) Remove rubber pad/mat.
    2.) Remove platter just beneath mat. Some platters are "press fit" onto the center shaft and seemingly can't be removed, the trick is to lift up on the platter while simultaneously lightly tapping on the top of the shaft with the handle of a screwdriver. While others may have a "E" clip at the base of the center shaft which must be removed with the a screwdriver, with care that it doesn't fly away before the platter can be removed.
    3.) Use rubbing Alcohol soaked cloth to clean outside of large 'lip' or ledge underneath platter and the (usually) brass pulley shaft on platter drive motor which should now be visible.
    4.) Install belt around the ledge underneath platter. Belt should be somewhat snug without falling off.
    If the belt just falls of the rim of the platter, then it is failing and needs to ne replaced.
    5.) Optional: Clean then Lube main center platter shaft of turntable with 3-in-1 oil or similar.
    6.) Re-install platter.
    7.) look thru 'access window' in platter and rotate platter until platter motor becomes visible.
    8.) Stretch belt from platter ledge over to far side of motor pulley.
    9.) Re-install mat and start player.
