Platter removal trouble on Rotel RP-2500

Anyone know the key to removing the platter? I need to replace the belt and all I see is "lift off the platter", but it doesn't come off. Help Thanks in advance.

Platters are often a taper fit on the spindle and stick over time.
If it simply says 'lift off the platter' then what you probably need to do (easier with a helper) is to lift the platter then at the same time GENTLY tap the spindle with a screwdriver handle or similar.
