You have to check an electronic store. If it does not have old one get a piece of string and measure around where the belt goes so you can know how big it is. Or you would have to order online, russell electronics sells all type of electronic belts you would have to search for a radioshack or another electronic store in your area.

Hi Norman

Normally the belt does not go through any special tensioners or anything of that nature,The belt should go directly from the spindle motor onto the inside of the platter. Hook the belt on the motor section and lay the belt open wide inside the turntable. Next, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platterinside through the two large holes

There should be a "C" clip on the center post that holds the record in the middle. Pop that off and gently wiggle table up. Careful not to over stretch the belt. There could be a cover over the clip.

This turntable goes to fast


I am sure you meant "TOO" fast...please be more specific. Remember, we vannot see your turntable from here, so "this turntable" doesn't help us much.
I have no idea if there's a pitch adjust on it, if it's belt or direct drive, DC servo or stepper controlled, nothing. You need to tell us that "My turntable model X by company Y is turning Z% too fast" filling in for x, y and z. if it sounds like it's just a little fast, z might be 5%. if it's going twice the speed it should, then z might be 100% - give a best estimate for Z but be accurate with everything else.

I bought a nice jensen home audio system with 3 cd changer belt drive turntable and dual cassette. When i got it home i tried to play a cd and it wont read any cd past track 7 please help


If this is an old set then it is possible that the optical head is weak, the servo is faulty or the mechanism is jammed.
So open and clean head, check to see if the optical head moves well into the mechanism if not clean the gears.
If none of these work the optical head is faulty.
replace with correct procedure.

I have a record player from the 70's and the turntable doesn't spin, but you can hear the motor running.


Most likely you may need a new belt, very common from that era, check the web to see if belt drive type.

New belts can still be found depending on what model you have.

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

Turntable won't turn


Hi!

Without any other information (and assuming you've checked to make sure there is power to the turntable and that it is turned on), the likely culprit is the belt drive of your turntable. Most, but not all, turntables have a "belt" that looks like a big rubber band on the underside of the turntable that connects the turntable itself to the drive motor. If the band has slipped out of place, stretched too far from age or usage, or broken, the turntable won't turn. To find out if this is your problem, gently lift the "platter" straight up (it should easily slide back into place) and visually see if the "rubber band" is in place. If it is stretched too far or broken, a new one should be availble form Teac or your local electronics supplier. If, by chance, you have a direct-drive turntable (unlikely), the problem will probably need professional work.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!

SX-1600 + KD-491F


Hi again,

It would seem that you posted the problem here also. With your kind permission, I will repost my excerpts of my responses that others may benefit on similar concerns.

A. Most current receivers no longer include a PHONO input. Perhaps what could be done is to purchase a phono to line level pre-amplifier to go along in your purchase for a new receiver.

I was made to understand that the Pioneer SX-1600 is prone to speaker output problems which could either be:
1. the speaker relay (protection); and/or
2. the amp, STK4191II Stereo Module.

Either should be relatively easy to work on and perhaps you can try the services of a locally available qualified electronic technician since the repairs would not be too specialized. The service manual may be of help (or at least a schematic , they may be downloaded from here and here).

B. To recap what you need is a receiver that can accommodate:
4 - Pioneer S-DF1-K (15-100W, 8 ohms)
1 - Pioneer PD-F407 25 Disc CD Player
1 - Pioneer CT-300 dual tape deck
1 - Kenwood KD-491F turntable

C. Possible choices are (keeping in mind that the power output should be less if not equal to 100 watts and a turntable/phono input):
i. Onkyo TX-8522 Stereo Receiver;
ii. Yamaha RX-397 100 Watt Natural Sound AM/FM Stereo Receiver;
iii. Sony STR DE695 AV receiver;
iv. Teac AG-790 200 Watt Stereo Receiver;
v. Denon AVR 888 - AV receiver - 7.1 channel.

Some of the above also includes feature(s) to hook up to your video system. Some may even require a fifth speaker (subwoofer).

Incidentally, you can also choose another brand/model even without a turntable/phono input. As initially posted, a turntable/phone to line level pre-amplifier is only required. Here are some examples:
a. XP200 Turntable Preamp - Nano Series;
b. Pyle® Pro PP999 Phono Preamplifier;
c. Pro-Ject Phono Box Turntable Preamplifier;
d. Radial J33 RIAA Turntable Preamp Direct Box

Good luck with your project.

The trick is to lift up on the platter (tothat metal on metal feel that you had) while simtaneously "lightly" tapping on the top of the shaft with a hammer. Trust me it will work as just changed my belt.
Hope that helps.
