On the shaft in the center where the hole of the record goes there is a locking washer on it . you can carefully remove this with a thin knife of something similar . you may need to use a little force , it is on there pretty tight however it can be removed .good luck

The platter just lifts right off. No special tricks or anything. Just lift the platter up!

    No, I am not sure, however 99% of all turntables allow for easy platter removal for drive belt replacement. This is a Radio Shack brand unit, so it might just be this is the 1% that does not come off easily. However, I did manage to locate the operation manual for you:

    See if that helps.

Connect optimus lab 1100 to macbook


The type of computer is not relevant. This turntable provides output at nominal "line level" and can be connected to your MacBook with a properly shielded audio cable through the audio input.

For best results, you might want to disable automatic-gain-control (AGC) in the "Sound" preferences pane in the "System Preferences" panel, and set the level manually such that the input does not overload.

As I mentioned above, the signal level is nominally "line level", and that can mean very different things depending on context. You might find that using a passive volume control (potentiometer) between the turntable and the computer's analog-to-digital converter can greatly improve the quality of sound.

My turntable speed is too slow. I have the optimus lab 1000 and there are speed adjustments on the bottom side of the unit but turning these either for 45 or 33 rpm did not change results. I have already...


Look under the platter or on the bottom of the turntable. There should be two adjustment holes for 45 and 33. You will need a small screwdriver for adjusting these. If this does not work clean the control pots with spray cleaner.

How do I remove the turntable to replace the belt underneath - I have just purchased the turntable and the belt is loose.


Good day. I assume that you have lifted the platter off the table. On the inside of the platter you will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helpsmicmor100.jpg

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.

Optimus lab 1100 truntable will not operate.


this is a belt driven platter. the belt is old and fell off. http://www.archive.org/details/Turntable_Belt_Installation

this link shows how to replace a belt, once you see where the belt goes thread a piece of string through the mechanism where the belt should go and measure it and contact them with the length. or measure total length of the old belt if still in one piece. figure about $14 for most belts.

Optimus 1000 belt drive automatic turntable


Usually, for most turntables, the belt goes on the bottom of the platter first. Then you put the platter back on the turntable. From here you should see an opening on the platter where you can 'grab' the belt. Pinch the belt, and then wrap it around the rotating motor's shaft. This is usually at the top left side - around the 10 o'clock position.

How do I replace the belt on a mt-6410 turntable


Just lift the platter off the turntable, and you'll see where the belt goes. You'll see a metal spindle/motor - this is where the belt wraps around. Then you will have to wrap around your turntable platter. This is a little tricky, but you should be able to figure it out.
