1. Remove the rubber disc from the metal platter.
2. Remove the metal platter by pulling straight up.
3. Ignore the player for the moment; focus on the platter.
4. On the underside of the platter is a circle about 2 inches smaller than the platter; stretch the belt around that inner circle. Make sure it is not twisted.
5. Put the platter back on the player. Rotate the platter so that one of the rectangular holes reveals the drive wheel.
6. Stretch the belt so that it goes around the drive wheel (I used a pencil but tweezers would likely work well).
7. Replace the rubber disc.

Denon auto lp turntable -model dp=29f

Lift the rubber cover off- there should be an opening or two in the metal or plastic turntable platter. Rotate it slowly until you see the motor pulley sticking-up; use a nail file to gently pull the belt from the bottom of the turntable over the pulley. rotate slowly to verify and then put the rubber cover back on. Let me know how it goes. Thanks.

Adjust pitch

Register (free) at Vinyl Engine and download the service manual. The adjustment you need to do seems fairly simple. You will need a turntable strobe disk to get the the speed right, unless you have perfect pitch.

No sound when i connect my denon-dp 29f turntable to denon rcd-m39 receiver. what might be the reason? Wrong receiver?

If your receiver ain't has a phono input and the tt has only a phono output, you'll need a phono to line line riaa amp , between the units.

The drive belt came off. How to I get it back on?

This is from the manual:


These are the directions for assembling when new, so your belt won't have the ribbon tape. Just install the belt around the platter and put it back over the drive shaft with your finger. If the belt comes off again, it's probably stretched and needs to be replaced. Replacement belts are available from several online sources in the $10-$20 range.

Denon DP-29F belt is loose

please not this is when first set up but may help

The drive belt is fitted under the platter. When assembling the
player, please handle the drive belt with care.
• Remove all packing materials attached to the tone arm, except
that on the stylus, and then open the dust cover and assemble.
Remove the stylus cover after assembling.
Hold the platter by the holes at its outer surface, and
then carefully lower the platter so that the center
spindle enters the center hole.
Rotate the platter until one of its outer openings is
aligned with the driving roller. (Refer to illustration.)
Gently grasp and pull at the ribbon tape of the drive
belt that is would under the turntable, and then
extend the belt around the driving roller. (After
attaching, remove the ribbon tape.)
In order to make sure that the drive belt has been
correctly fitted, slowly rotate the platter 3 or 4 turns.
Place the rubber mat on the platter.
IMPORTANT! Please Check.
Check that the drive belt and ribbon tape have been attached
under the platter. Grasp the ribbon tape as shown in the
illustration to the left, and extend it onto the driving roller.

Belt came off

Remove the rubber mat and you will see two holes in the turntable. Put your fingers in these holes & using equal force pull up to release the turntable. The drive belt goes around the metal disk you will see below and around the drive pulley. Most likely it has just jumped off the pulley so hook it back over. Replace the turntable and gently rotate it a couple of revolutions, you can see the belt through the holes in the turntable. If all is seated OK power up & enjoy! You can download the manual from the link below: This shows the procedure as per original install. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
