    can I get detailed information on where to place the belt under the turntable. Also, where should the gear for the needle be in relationship to the neutral position.

Dear Sir,
First, remove the platter. On the bottom of the platter you should find what appears to be a decorative ridge or rim. It may even have a black stain from the belt.
Put the belt onto this rim.
Next, pull the belt away from the platter enough so that you can see it from the top of the platter. From the top of the platter, stick your finger into the loop you have created and keep the belt stretched enough to be visible from above.
Don't pull it much farther than that or you will stretch the belt and make it unusable.
You should see a small pulley situated near to where the outside of the platter would be if it were installed.
Start re-installing the platter onto its centre pin but still keep it an inch or so away from actually sticking it onto its centre pin.
Loop the belt off your finger onto the small pulley. Then push the platter the rest of the way down.

Well, you should have two pulleys, one for the drive motor (the
small one), and one for the record plate (the large one). Other
than that, you will have to go to a local stereo repair shop for
the necessary assistance, or you could contact this place...

There are two main types of phonograph turntable drives still being manufactured today, the belt-drive and direct-drive systems; the names are based upon the type of motor system found in each.
In a belt drive turntable the motor is located under and to the side of the platter and is connected to the platter by an elastomeric belt.
The design of the belt drive turntable allows the use of a less expensive motor than the direct-drive turntable. Also, the elastomeric belt absorbs motor vibrations which would otherwise be picked up by the stylus.

The turntable should be under warranty still so contact the makers and they should sort it out. Any tampering with it could void any warranty so don't let any unathoriesed person touch it.

Lift the rubber cover off- there should be an opening or two in the metal or plastic turntable platter. Rotate it slowly until you see the motor pulley sticking-up; use a nail file to gently pull the belt from the bottom of the turntable over the pulley. rotate slowly to verify and then put the rubber cover back on. Let me know how it goes. Thanks.

Have a brand new Denon DP-300F turntable that worked fine for the first two recods. Now when I use it the records sound as if they are playing in slow motion. Could there be an issue with the belt eve


It could, but it could be caused by something stuck inside it, perhaps from the packing or some other bizarre thing connected with it being transported to your home.

Running VERY slowly


The thing to do is to check the belt first, then look at things like is there a build up of grease dirt anywhere. Clean up the platter make certain no grease or dirt is the works causing it to slow down.
See also that the motor that drives the belt can turn freely and very easy by hand.

In my DENON DP-300F tone arm don't come back after playing record. It just stays in the end of record? How can i fix it?


A lot of decks don't actually do that anyway. But if it previously did this then it's probably a mechanical problem. Removing the bottom of the turntable might show up the cause of the problem.
