BELT FALLS OFF

Hello Dan,

I just purchased this item from someone local who told me sometimes the belt falls off and you can easily pop it back on. Yeah Right! I bought this gift for my husband's one year anniversary and we have spent more time trying to repair it than listen to the albums! And to add to that, now the table doesn't even spin! Since you live in the same state we do (MA), I was wondering if you could offer any help...I really wanted a gift for my husband to enjoy--not a frustrating project! Any insight on how these players work (or fix!) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
New Broken Owners :(

Without the model number, I can't supply the belt number or size. These belts do stretch over time. If we can find the correct one, the belt shouldn't be more than $8-$10. If you aren't far from Lancaster, there is a flea market there that has a repair booth. You can try there as well.

My stereo wont play cds or even open now why could this be


Dust can get inside the unit and land on the lens making certain the disc can't be read. Also a small rubber belt opens the door. That can break and fall off. Both are easily corrected by cleaning the lens, but you will have to go inside first find the belt that opens the draw and replace it. Or you can take it to the nearest repair shop. Belt replacement is not expensive nor is cleaning.

I have got a Sony CMT-EX100 Micro System. When I touch the OPEN/CLOSE-button on the top, the system doesn't open. I opened the system and it seems that the magnetic disc-holder holds the disc-tray too...


This problem is easily repaired! The belt that drives the mechanism is worn out (relaxed) and slides on the motor pulley. Just open the device (from the bottom and then drag the body up by removing the edges). You have to put a new belt section ø 35 mm 1 mm and the unit will work again.

The display on my old Pioneer stereo multi CD receiver fades


The problem is a bad solder connection probably on the display itself. These are not the easiest to open up. I would not suggest you attempt this if you haven't done these before. This is a simple fix for any shop that handles audio repair. Call around for a shop that works on Pioneer gear and request an estimate over the phone. Indicate that the dispaly has bad connections that need to be resoldered. You may find a shop that will repair this for short money. Where are you located? Perhaps I can suggest a shop.

MY SONY LBT-LX90AV CASSETT PLAYS DISCORD AND BELT FALLS OFF


Hi. Make sure the flywheel turns freely and that the capstan pin and pressure roller are clean. If this is OK then it is more than likely that the belt is stretched, dried out or generally worn. These parts only have a certain usable life and are quite cheap to replace.

BELT FALLS OFF


1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

DTA800 do not receive UHF


I am not from that part of the country, so I can't say for sure, but check the following:

1) Are the UHF channels local and small stations? If so and under a certain power level, they are not required to broadcast in digital. THere may not be digital UHF channels local to you.

2) The changeover is required by law to occur by Feb 2009. Not all stations have made the change yet. You could still be in an area where the stations have not yet converted to digital broadcasts.

Make a few calls to find out which category yuo fall under above. If you don't fall into either of the above, update this and we'll look elsewhere for the problem.

Fisher Studio-Standard Belt-drive Semi-Automatic Turntable MT-32


Most likely the grease in the whole system has started to stiffen or the motor is failing. This can be fixed. Try oiling the motor first. If that fails, I'd look at the motor driver IC as the most likely failing part.

Philco turntable CD with cassette


Most of these are blet driven and the belt is probably slipping. This is a relatively simple repair if you have the correct belt. I'm in Massachusetts, so I don't have any particular recommendations for you. The belt will cost around $10.

I found this website in my search for the same problem. I don't think my belt is loose though, it just keeps falling off and I can't get it back on. But here is the site that sells the replacement belts http://www.turntablebasics.com/belts/philco.html
