As inquired above; "...which deck please ? ...A or B..."
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it's a 3 CD player. the belt turns the CD deck. other than that, your question makes no sense. you can call me if you need to.
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.
I understand and confirms that it is the CD deck and not either of the TAPE decks.
From the Service Manual, I can provide you with the Part Number. Would this information serve your need please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Philips said they do not have parts to sell for this unit. I need to know the size of the belt exactly so that i can go online or where ever you recommend, to purchase the correct belt. can you help me with that problem?
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.
I can only provide Part Numbers.
Hopefully another member can provide an alternate approach to your concern. The question would be re-opened as I would be opting out.
Still, good luck with the repairs.
