Hi welcome to just answer.

What happens when you move the pick-up arm? Do you hear any motor noise?

Would you be able to remove the plater to perform belt inspection?
Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Electronics Technician: electronicsguy, Engineer replied 7 months ago

To take the plater off, remove the rubber mat, then remove the c-clamp that holds the metal plater in place. Use a flat head screw driver to remove c-clamp. Be sure to protect the clip from flying off the plater as it is small. The pull the plater vertically up and remove it. You can see whether the belt is broken or it is off the driver motor.
