Turntable Belts info: If you have the turntable belt:· Pinch both ends of the belt. Ensure that the threaded metal sleeve is a the right way up with the recess on the top side. Then hold the stylus under a magnifying glass to see if the point is worn, rounded or broken off. Straightening the point is not possible.
