Maybe this will be of help?

No! The amp must have a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to increase the sound level. If it has one it will say "phono" on the inputs on the back and have a "turntable" - or "Phono" selector switch. If it doesn't have one (many new surround amps don't) you won't be able to play it properly untill you get a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp". This will make the signal loud enough to be used on a normal aux imput of the Sony.

This should be straightforward. Take off the slipmat and lift off the turntable (platter) and you'll see there is a rim on the underside of the platter this is where the belt goes.
Put the belt round that rim and you'll notice a couple of holes in the platter itself. Hold the belt through one of these holes and put it back on the tunrntable while taking notice of the motor position on the deck.
When the platter is in place (still hold belt) and move the platter to the position of the motor pulley and slip it on. Manually turn the deck once or twice to make sure it is in place - DONE! Replace the slipmat.
ENJOY! (:-)

Typically, one would run a single wire, 18 or 20 gauge will work, from the turntable motor housing to the amp chassis. I know the older amps have a ground screw on them,, but any chassis screw will work.
