Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders
Your unit is older and probably needs a new belt and a good cleaning and lubrication. You can get the belt here http://1200s.com/Store/p10000368/Technics_SL-BD22_Drive_Belt_Replacement/product_info.html . To replace the belt you will need to remove the platter and while in there you can clean the spindle bearing and motor as well as re-lubricating the motor and spindle shaft. You will need a can of Blue Shower Degreaser, available at http://www.mcmelectronics.com/ as well as lint free wipes and a good oil designed for electronics. To remove the platter you will have to remove a "C" clip on the spindle, below the rubber mat on the surface. Once removed the platter should slide right off the spindle. Using the blue shower spray any turning surfaces as well as both ends of the drive motor. The blue shower will not hurt anything and is the best to remove any grease or dirt. Once all parts are clean and dry apply a small amount of lubricant and reassemble the entire assembly. You will have to remove the rubber mat to access a slot in the platter to hook the belt to the platter using a small flat screwdriver. This should make your unit run as good as new if this was the only problem and the motor did not have more serious issues. Generally after years of use this is the most common problem.
