Question about Technics SL-1200 Turntable
I posted this as part of my tone arm problem but haven't had any answers so I'll post it as it's own problem.
I have an SL-1200MKII and the platter is completely stuck. I've checked around, saw if you gave the middle knob a tab with a wooden hammer it can come free but this one is STUCK. It's been in storage for 5 years.
I put some WD-40 and let it sit to see if it would sink in but no luck. I've pulled very hard but am afraid of rigging something that might do serious damage.
Is there a way to get behind the platter? If I take it all apart, or is there a another suggestion someone might have?
If you take off the platter does the motor spin? if not the motor isnt working. also make sure that the platter is able to freespin if not it may be unbalanced and the turntable needs to be opened up and leveled/raised. very simple its just a few screws on the motor in the center of the turntable.
