Reattaching Belt to Two posts

The belt slipped off the two posts in my record player, and it seems as if the belt is two times too large for the distance between the two posts.

How do I reattach the belt to the two posts?
Thank you

I had the same problem... Here is what I did. As the previous post mentioned, remove the black plastic turntable platter. You now should see the loose belt. If the belt is still good, place it back on the underside of the platter. You will notice there are two opposing plastic pins located at the outer edge of the platter. Pull the belt over one of the pins. Place the platter over it's chrome spindle shaft, with the plastic pin facing the motor shaft. after the platter is in place (don't put the "e-clip" on just yet...) rotate the platter a couple of turns. This should do the trick. If not, keep trying. It worked for me on the first try. After the belt is back on, secure the platter with the e-clip and replace the black rubber mat. Viola!

The player only intermittently recognizes CDs inserted; it does not seem to make any difference whether they are commercial, recorded at home, etc. Sometimes it says "insert disk," sometimes "no disk." ...


A CD tray is usually powered by a rubber strap, the belt can slip through, causing the electronics to miss the input timing, including a microswitch or copper contact which is activated at the closed disc tray so that the laser is focussed to read the table of contents Due to the fact that the spindle motor is activated. And in some players (interchanges there is also a selects witch that can be contaminated. a suggestion to help in the link

Turntable won't turn


There is usually a cotter pin at the center of the platter around the spindle base. This can be removed with a screw driver using a twisting motion. There is a blades worth of space between the clip and the spindle base. Screw driver should be in vertical position. Sometimes the vinyl slip mat must be removed first. Watch that clip, cause it can go flyin. Once the clip is removed, the turntable should let go easily.

Record player not working


Hi Allan,

Unfortunately it sounds like the belt either broke or is slipping. If you're up to it, you can order a replacement belt from a few different places online. As I haven't messed with a turntable in years, I can't make any personal recommendations. A quick google search returned this company, though... http://www.turntableneedles.com/

You'll need the current belt measurements before you order a replacement. And, disassembling the unit will confirm if the belt is broken or just slipping. (Or, better yet, slipped off the pulleys!)

Keep in mind that replacing the belt can be a daunting task.

Good luck!

Belt slipping


I have a Ryobi sander with a belt slipping issue as well. The problem seems to be in the design, not on the user end. The drive barrel is made of a semi-hard, non-gripping material. Wood dust becomes a final release agent that breaks any grip that the barrel may have had.
To compound the problem, the more the belt slips the smother the underside becomes allowing for greater slippage.
I now know why this model was the least expensive unit. >.<
