I find it hard to believe some of these answers. If the platter is wobbling, if you remove the platter, you'll find the spindle the platter rotates on. That will probably be loose. At the bottom of the spindle bearing, you will find a nut. Tighten that, and you should be in business. If you have further questions please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there.
If it keeps sliding in one direction, it probably needs an anti-skating adjustment or to be put on a level surface. If it jumps all over, the stylus weight is probably too light or the surface it's on isn't stable enough.
CHECK ANTI SKATING SETTING SHOULD BE SAME AS STYLUS FORCE ABOUT 3.ADJUST TONEARM HEIGHT SO IT IS PARALLEL TO RECORD WHEN PLAYING.HAS THE DECK HAD NEW PHONO CABLE FITTED RECENTLY IF SO THIS WILL BE THE CAUSE GET IT DONE PROPERLY.
Your belt is probably worn and needs replacing. Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps
when you say ages to get back to speed how long is that exactly? even on my technics for cueing i give a slight throw to hit my cue points.
also your slip mat may be an issue. do not use the rubber mats use the soft nylon foam one that came with it only.
some tables require the tonearm to be over the record area before the patter starts to spin. If thats not it, have you tried "jump starting" the platter with your finger? the direct drive "stepper" motor might be confused as to where it is at the moment. and finally remove power from the wall for a few minutes then retry.
