Question about Panasonic Audio Players & Recorders
The belt will only need replacing if it breaks or falls off, or the sound has wow and flutter on it. It will not effect the sound level. First has the sound level gone down or is this the first time you have connected it to your amp?
If it is the first time, you need to check the amp has a 'magnetic cartridge pre-amp' built in. If you don't know look at where the turntable plugs in. If it doesn't say phono or record deck etc, then it most likely doesn't. In which case search on the net for one.
If the sound has gone bad then: (A) sound quality poor - change stylus. (B) sound level low change cartridge. A good test to determine it's the cartridge is to remove the wires to it. With your amp working touch them one at a time. You should hear a loud buzz on the right on one wire and and another buzz on the left on another wire. The other two wires should not produce any sound or little.
If you do hear the buzz then the cartridge is faulty, if not then either the amp isn't working or the connections between the two devices are faulty.
