Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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 : )
