Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX will help you out. It seems that your carousel may be blocked by some fragments. That is most probably the reason that your belt got off. try opening again and moving the carousel slightly backwards by hand and then forward. See if it is blocked. If yes then check what might be blocking it. It can be a broken gear. Also check that the motor that turns the carousel is functioning when you give the signal ( without the belt) If no it could be that the motor has got damaged.

If you need further assistance let me know.

i can move it by hand with no problem. when i turn it on, i hear a humming sound and then it shows TABLE ERROR

It seems that most probably its the motor that turns the belt and the carousel that is the problem then. Try running it with the belt disconnected and see if it turns. If still the humming noise it will need replacement.

i found that the belt keeps slipping off when i turn on the player. can the belt get worn and stretched out?

Expert:  Noel Schembri replied 6 years ago.
Yes it can, if the belt is slipping off it may need replacement as it may have got stretched. Thus it means that the motor is turning(that is good news). Most probably that is your problem.
