We wanted to play an old lp last week, and haven't used the turntable for awhile and it wouldn't (turn). The belt is in place, but it just won't turn. It has power, we checked that thoroughly. Any suggestions?
I have the same trouble so I gave it a push and after manually spinning the table and then putting through it's sequence a few times it worked fine!....but now it's started to run at a speed half way between 33 and 45rpm.
To see if its just a stuck motor, remove the table lift the arm move it over so it's trying to drive then just rotate the pulley clockwise between finger and thumb.

A damaged or worn stylus will effect all records not just one. I don't know what D4 fluid is, but if there was some still present on the record it could have got inside the cartridge and done some damage to it.
Hi, your unit has "The efficient belt-drive system provides accurate play and control" and normally the belt lasts for long time ..i.e at least 5 years.. If you sure that it is belt ,you need to take the turntable disc (should be a security pin in the middle ) than you can access underneath of disc or some models needs to access from bottom of the turntable ,inside the receiver.. just in case ,if you need detailed user manual in pdf format pls visit he URL below.. Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)

most of today's receivers dont have the jacks for phonos...you will be able to plug left/right plugs into aux/cd (unless you are using a power amp) . is your phono equipped with the needle (cartridge) also? yes, then you are ready to play a LP/Album...turn volume down on amp or receiver place LP onto turntable needle on switch source selector to what you plugged into turn vol up slowly and enjoy
If the turntable is a belt driven unit have you checked to see if the belt has slipped off from around the inside on the platter. Or maybe it could be snapped.
Put you ear to the turntable and switch it to play (you will have to pull the tone arm to where it would normally be to play an LP) listen for a faint noise of a motor running. If you can hear it, the drive belt could be the culprit.
I just checked and YES it is a belt drive. I'll bet my boots that's the problem. Pull the power plug and inspect the actual platter to see if it's removeable. You may have to rmove a circlip from the main drive shaft to remove the platter. To replace the belt. Slip it over the motor shaft and lay it in the bottom under where the platter sits. Then replace the plater and using two fingers pick up the belt and guide it onto the rim the inner rim under the platter and keep rotating the platter slowly until the complete belt is around that inner rim.
Things are now ready to go. If the belt continues to fall off it means it''s been stretched and you will require a replacement. Obviously for free if it's under warranty. Changing the belt yourself shouldn't void the warranty.
Sometimes you have to unplug it for about 30 seconds, then when you plug it in press the power on button. If there is still no sound, check the speaker connections on the back they sometimes come loose.
The mechanics in your arm postion is throwing the switch. A mechanical postion switch has sliped out of postion, a arm from the toner arm post has moved to an encorrect postion, or if your turntable has a multi-album play abilty your 'next to play record' post postion sensor switch is out of postion. Last or first is your belt could fool ya. Your belt may have a weak spot on it in turn no friction underload.
