Re: How to remove platter on Optimus Lab-1100 Turntable
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

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 helps
I don't know the answer, but you have written one of the finest, most comprehensive problem descriptions I have come across. In mechanical scenarios, that is priceless. I'm sure a turntable guru will see it and go, "aw. I know what that is". Good Luck.
That is the drive belt for the turntable . It's not that hard to set up. Take the mat off the platter and wrap the belt around the underneath -slightly-less-diameter portion.
With a pointed end needle or something like it , put the tip between the belt and the platter portion it's wrapped against. Pull the belt away from that( keeping the rest of the belt on the platter portion) and set it over the motor pulley. This is usually a small diameter brass spindle unit
The belt is replaced as in the following diagram from the manual that you can download on the link below:

ahh! same thing happened to me during a move. quite frustrating, but a simple fix:
remove the plate and look at the underside. here you'll see a ring around it, place the belt around that ring. there are 5 holes total, one small in the center, two larger ones to the side, and two rectangular ones on the edge.
as you're putting the plate back onto the player, grab the belt through one of the rectangular holes and place that part of the belt around the cylindrical moving post to the upper left the same time as you put the plate back in place.
it sounds confusing, but it's simple, i swear. let me know if i can clarify anything for you.
