Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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.

My thorens turntable makes a grinding/scraping sound on every revolution. platter is scraping on frame.


The only thing I can suggest is that you remove the platter. They often are attached by a horseshoe clip at the spindle. This might be hidden by a plastic cover. Once off you might see the cause. It might just need some grease or oil. Or something might have got inside it!

My Thorens TD150 MK2 Phono Turntable Motor will not run or spin with the belt on but will turn without the belt on.What is wrong.


If you can turn the platter easily by hand, then so should the motor. You can also disconect the power leads to the motor and hook up a PP9 9 volt battery to it. If it\'s slow and easily stopped from rotating then there\'s nothing wrong with the power to the motor and the motor is bad!

I HAVE A THORENS TD 125 MK11 AND THE BELT KEEPS SLIPPING OFF, I REPLACED THE BELT AND THIS STILL CONTINUES ARE THE BELTS OLD? OR THE SPINDLE ON THE MOTOR SHAFT NOT WORKING


Couple things to do here - First turn your platter upside down on a towel placed on a hard surface.
  1. Clean the motor pulley and the inner platter real good with some rubbing alcohol and some Q-tips. Be sure to let them dry.
  2. Now then wet your fingers with some water and just barely wet the belt with your fingers. Don't soak it, just enough to coat the belt with baby powder.
  3. Put the belt in a baggy and add some baby powered and shake it up real good till the belt is coated.
  4. Take the belt out of the baggy and shake the excess off. This is an old trick that will help the belt grab real well.
  5. Now you put that belt on and and watch the pulley and belt when it starts to spin.
  6. See if the belt slips now.
  7. If it does there is a little spring adjustment on the mount for the pulley. You have to find just the right spot during adjustment. It may require a little trial and error but the things I listed will solve your problem

Looks like the rubber band came off


if it is black and fairly long it's probably the drive belt and it has likely become stretched (or sticky).The belt fits on the inner circumference of the platter- to re-install - remove the rubber platter cover and platter
-stretch the belt around the inner (botom side inner) lip of the platter
- you should see the motor facing up with a brass capstan or drive bobbin
-from the top side of the platter stretch the belt slightly off the platter through the openings provided and while re-installing the platter loop the belt over the motor bobbin.
If the belt flops off the inner platter it's to stretched and a replacement would have to be ordered

Belt fell off


HI, First remove mat from TT platter. Next hold it with upward pressure while striking centre pin with a sharp tap, (real light instrument) not blow. Next you will see the motor shaft (once TT is removed) note it's position, put belt back onto TT rim, that will be the underside flange, lift belt by one finger away from flange edge and place TT back over spindle while having finger with belt over motor shaft. allow belt to contact with motor. Now belt should be around under platter flange and around motor pulley. If this is correct, power up, if all works replace soft mat and enjoy the music. A word of warning, the belt and stylus/cartridge may need replacement!

How do i put my belt back on a technics dc servo automatic turntable system SL-B210 i havnt used it for a while so when i got it out to use the belt was lose uder the thing the disc gose on


Remove the platter, then take the belt, and wrap it to the bottom lip of the platter. You'll see an inner lip underneath the platter... this is where the belt goes.

Next, put the platter back on, and you'll see 2 holes on alternate sides of the platter. Rotate the platter until the brass shaft of the motor is exposed - usually @ the 11 o'clock position. Pinch the belt and pull it out, to wrap around the shaft.

That's it.

Good luck!

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.

Drive belt routing


BASIC INSTALLATION: Most belts are easily replaceable. It involves removing the turntable platter (usually metal and they usually just pull straight up off of the spindle). The belt is placed around the inner lip of the platter. Platter is replaced onto spindle and then, through one of the holes in the platter, reach your fingers in, grab the belt from the inner lip of the platter, and stretch the belt around the capstan or motor shaft. You are done. Some turntables are a little more involved, but most are simple. Check yours out. I was helped by a nice gentleman on the e-bay auction.

Fixing a Kenwood KD 491F turntable


The reason why the audio is low, is that todays receivers do not have a phono input, and these types of inputs are differant then the ones of today. You will need whats called a phono preamp, and one should still be available from Radio shack. Or you can go here to find out more about them: http://www.phonopreamps.com/ To reseat the belt, take off the rubber mat on the turntabe disc. Install the belt around the inside ridge, there should be a couple of holes on the platter disc. Install the patter back onto the center spindle. Turn the platter around till you see the motor pully through one of the holes in the platter. Take the belt that is around the turntable platter, and pull it over to the motor pulley. Good Luck
