Hi,Dead as in no power up or dead as in the turntable will not spin?? If
the turntable isn't spinning check and see if you have a direct drive or
belt driven.Getting back to your turntable, if it is belt driven your
belt may have become dried rotted. replacements are available at
needledoctor.com ... good luck, definitely worth getting it up and running again...
Generic replacement belts are available from a number of suppliers, but you need to know the dimensions of the original. My cross-reference guides for a couple of companies don't list your Sharp model so I can't give you a specific part number. You might try taking the old belt to a service shop. If they have a belt gauge they might be able to order a suitable PRB brand or equivalent replacement for you.
Doing a search for your model turned up this vendor (in Australia!) who claims to have the belt in stock. They offer international shipping, so maybe this would work for you.
The liely cause of the slow speed problem is the belt. Your turntable is belt driven, like components in your car's engine compartment. As the belt ages, it can begin to slip. Replacement of the belt will probably restore the speed once again. The PX-E860 turntable has been discontinued. There are parts, such as the belt, that are still available. How much longer these parts will be available for remains unknown. If you like the the turntable, you should consider purchasing several belts as the next time you need one, they may not be available or may cost much more.

You might also need a manual to direct you as to how to go about changing the belt. The manual is a free (after registering) download below:
Hello Cliff, You will need 2 belts, if the turntable belt is gone the other is not far behind . One for the turntable size 23.6 inch by .188 and one for the tracking motor that is in the top cover part, is a 3.0 inch by .046 belt. best place to get them is at kenselectronics.com part numbers 1407-201 and AV-SBS3.0 if you have been checking around you will see other sizes, I have a SL-J1 and have used these and they work perfectly.
