Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I just received a Thorens TD320 TT via UPS today. The inner platter was out of the shaft and rolling around. Once installed, the platter does not rotate easily. The belt jumps off as soon as the motor is turned on.

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.

The rubber drive belt on my new Akai ATT021A USB Turntable has come off both spindles, and dissappeared under the platter.Can anyone recommend how it can be refitted. PaulR


Remove mat from platter. Using a small screwdriver remove the cir-clip holding the platter on, careful here mind your eyes it may spring away. Carefully lift the platter of, not too much force, you will see the belt laying underneath. Take the belt and put it around the underside of the platter, you will see where it goes, just on the large inside edge. Put the platter back on but not the cir-clip yet. Move the platter around until you can see the motor spindle. Using a small screwdriver and your finger put the belt onto the motor spindle. Make sure it is not twisted. Test the player if the turntable spins OK replace the cir-clip, this can be tricky but get it located first then lift the back up to clear the spindle bearing. There you go.

Hello, is it possible to connect my anolog turntable to my klhR5100 receiver


No TT input. Need to get a phono amp (a small line amp). Check your local Best But Radio Shack.

First check for a line level switch on the TT, Might be under the rubber mat a you may need to turn the platter to fine it. Older TTs probably wont have one.

I'm guessing that the belt is too large (stretched). Normally it should be small enough to stay on the platter itself. Install the platter and place the belt around the motor hub (white plastic), If the belt is too loose, it will just sit and not turn the platter. Try a new belt first as that is the least expensive option to try.

Keep us posted.

PUT A BLET ON TURNTABLE FOR KEENWOOD KD-491F


The belt normally wraps around the bottom of the metal platter. Put the platter back on the turntable, and you'll see holes on opposite sides of the patter. Just pinch the belt out a little, and wrap around the motor shaft - should be a brass shaft assembly.

My drive belt on my optimum turn table has come of how do i put it back on?


Hi mcmassous
Refitting the belt is easy.
1.) Remove rubber pad/mat.
2.) Remove platter just beneath mat. Some platters are "press fit" onto the center shaft and seemingly can't be removed, the trick is to lift up on the platter while simultaneously lightly tapping on the top of the shaft with the handle of a screwdriver. While others may have a "E" clip at the base of the center shaft which must be removed with the a screwdriver, with care that it doesn't fly away before the platter can be removed.
3.) Use rubbing Alcohol soaked cloth to clean outside of large 'lip' or ledge underneath platter and the (usually) brass pulley shaft on platter drive motor which should now be visible.
4.) Install belt around the ledge underneath platter. Belt should be somewhat snug without falling off.
If the belt just falls of the rim of the platter, then it is failing and needs to ne replaced.
5.) Optional: Clean then Lube main center platter shaft of turntable with 3-in-1 oil or similar.
6.) Re-install platter.
7.) look thru 'access window' in platter and rotate platter until platter motor becomes visible.
8.) Stretch belt from platter ledge over to far side of motor pulley.
9.) Re-install mat and start player.

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.
