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.

I would like to know how to put on a Technics SL-J110 Belt Drive back on please.


For most of the belt drive turntable the procedure is more les the same:
Pull up the rubber mat, pull up the platterand find the belt. If the belt is removed from the platter, replace it with theglossy side outward. Pull the platter back at the original position. Turn untilone of the 2 big openings come over the motor pulley. With your finger placethe belt from the platter at the motor pulley. Pull the rubber mat back. Youare ready. Here is a schematic for all the above:technical114_86.jpg

I have a older model record player/8-track/cassette/radio stereo. It have been in an attick in the box for many years. The record player does not turn - it is very stiff. I can manually turn it with my...


A combination of heat and dirt is "public enemy #1" for electronic devices. Most people's attics are loaded with both.

A thorough cleaning followed by careful lubrication may bring the record player or "turntable" back to life - but it will most likely need to be done while at least partially disassembled. A few drops on the center spindle from above is no guaranty that the oil will seep underneath the platter - as most are solid parts. You didn't include a name and model number so I can only speak in generalities rather than specifically to your model.

Much of both the tape drive mechanisms rely on rubber drive belts. These belts look like simple rubber bands but are not (and will not work when replaced with rubber bands either - I know - I've tried). The drive belts, like most simple rubber bands will dry out very quickly and break in the extreme heat found in attics in the summer. Similarly, many turntables are belt driven, too. The belts for those, while longer and thicker, will suffer the same fate in those conditions. Inspection and replacement of these belts seldom can be done without some dis-assembly. The turntables that are direct drive do not have these belts. The drive motors for both types of turntables may benefit from one or two drops of sewing machine oil (or other light, thin oil) applied at the point the drive shaft meets the motor housing. Anything that turns or rubs against other moving or stationary parts can also receive a single drop of oil. Do not over do it - and wipe away excess oil as oil attracts dust and dirt.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Define optimum.

If it tests out in the speaker setup then it's probably just fine. There usually isn't much program material directed to that speaker.

I'm guessing that the belt is too large (stretched). Normally it should be small enough to stay on the platter itself. Install the platter and place the belt around the motor hub (white plastic), If the belt is too loose, it will just sit and not turn the platter. Try a new belt first as that is the least expensive option to try.

Keep us posted.

Garrard turntable model 630s


There are a couple of things that need to be done here and there is no guarantee that the unit will work, but I have been successful in the past.

First remove the platter and clean all of the grease out of the unit. With all of hte grease removed, replace the platter and make sure that it turns freely. Regrease the unit one all of the old is removed. Next you will need to clean and treat the rubber drive wheel.

Good luck,
