    Thanks for the reply



    It's a direct drive unit.

Is this a belt drive unit? Seems to me that this model was. It might just be a slipping belt....accordianman

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.

I have an older QL-45 turntable that needs tone arm adjustment- I don`t know how to set the weight so it doesn`t lower down to album so hard or heavily


I can't find the specific turntable. Who makes it?

This should work with some modifications for your specific controls...

Make a note of the tracking force setting.


Make sure the turntable is level.


Unplug the power to the turntable.

Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.

Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.

Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.

Set the Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting to 0.

Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.

Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.

Return the tonearm to its rest.

Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.

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.

Have a Sansui compu edit p-m70 turtable. I turn


Lift off the turntable mat and the platter. Near the tone-arm, remove two screws holding down a panel and then inspect the tonearm belt. They wear out and stretch out and this could be the problem. Replacement is easy and does not require any special tools or further dissasembly.

Lock light indicates that turntable platter speed has reached correct speed.

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.

Garrard turntable model 630s


There are a couple of things that need to be done here and there is no guarantee that the unit will work, but I have been successful in the past.

First remove the platter and clean all of the grease out of the unit. With all of hte grease removed, replace the platter and make sure that it turns freely. Regrease the unit one all of the old is removed. Next you will need to clean and treat the rubber drive wheel.

Good luck,

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.

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.
