Technics SL-B2 Frequency Generator Servo Automatic Turntable will not play

I could not submit this question with the correct "Product:" (Technics SL-B2) so put in Technics SL-1210 Turntable.

A neighbor just gave me their old Technics SL-B2 Frequency Generator Servo Automatic turntable which hadn't been used for years. After I attached it to my Sony receiver and plugged the electrical cord in I discovered there was no "ON" button. My neighbor said since it had been so long since they had used it he really couldn't remember how it started, but thought all you had to do was pick up the arm and move it towards the record. I tried that and nothing happened. They haven't been able to locate the manual, so it was probably thrown out. They never had any problems with it - it always worked fine. Do you have any suggestions or solutions. Thanks for your help. Elizabeth

    I solved the problem myself - it needs a new belt.

    I have the same unit. I figured out that it turns on when the arm is moved, BUT when is the record supposed to spin, mine does not spin? Does it spin at the same time when the arm is moved, if so then I guess I have the belt or motor problem?

    Also the Red and the white ends, where are they supposed to plug into? Line in/out, speaker in/out?

    Thanks Joe

There is no on-off switch.
The plugged in turn table turns onwhen you lift / move the arm.
I have one - still works after over 20 years.

Hello

You need a belt.. Lift up the record support..(platter) Underneath you will see a metal post.. Belt goes around that and the bottom of the plate.(there is a rim) . If the belt is there, motor might be bad..

Turntable running slow


Hi Ken,

it is a Technics Frequency Generator Servo (Belt drive SL-23). I have four different belts and neither one of them works. Two are too slow and one is too fast and the other one is slow and fast.

I changed the belt before that I got off of an old turn table. It deteriorated.

I would appreciate any help.

So far I am also having Gateway Monitor problems and Canon Mp560 printer problems

Thank you,.

NEED A BELT FOR MY DC SERVO AUTOMATIC TURNTABLE SYSTEMS SL-B210


You have to check an electronic store. If it does not have old one get a piece of string and measure around where the belt goes so you can know how big it is. Or you would have to order online, russell electronics sells all type of electronic belts you would have to search for a radioshack or another electronic store in your area.

Scrobe light


If memory serves me correctly, the strobe is nothing other than a neon lamp. These should be available at any electronics parts store.
