Sharp AZ-3000 Linear Record Player Repair #Part 1 Ridiculous Belt Change | UK eBay Reseller

We bought this Sharp AZ-3000 linear record player HiFi from auction. The hammer price was £42 so with commission we paid around £50 for this unit.
The auction house said it turned on but that's as far as they test.

Can we get this fully working?
Is this Sharp AZ-3000 worth over £500?

This AZ-3000 needs some work to it:-
The record doesn't spin (replace belt)
The tape player won't rewind and is slow to fast forward, but does play.
One of the VU meters for the tape is full on and distorts sound, so needs looking at.
And the volume control (and probably others), is crackly so it all needs a good clean.
