I just bought this as a gift for my husband on our anniversary. The day I bring it home the belt falls off and as we desperately try many ways to get it back on...the turn table spinner doesn't turn now! I just got this today off a private owner who wasn't much help. I wanted a gift not a project so if you have any suggestions on how to get this up and running it would be more than appreciated!!

Re: 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.

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.
Go online to rca, contact customer support and technical department. They should be able to provide the belt kit. The second option is go to a rca dealer nearest you. The third option is to bring all the belts down to a tv repair shop and have them size up, using a belt gauge. This would be the cheapest approach.
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.
The belt is located within the cd mechanism, so you will have to take apart piece of it to change the belt. My advise is to let a professional do it, cause setting back the mechanism can be tricky if you don't know what your doing. Also, I have found in some of these units, the CD pickup tends to go faulty easily, so be aware.
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.
Its not a typical repair that a do it yourselfer can do unless youve had troubleshooting experience on microprocessors. Your problem could be the 5 volt power supply is not filtered clean when it warms up or the reset voltage falls too low for the micro. good luck
