No, there is no motors on these things. They operate on a direct drive system. What this means is that there are various components/circuits which control it's drive function. If the torque is off on your turntables, more than likely one of the resistors is just old and needs to be replaced.

Not a job for a novice. Take it to a professional.... someone who knows about 1200s.

How do I test for a poor ground wire as opposed to a bad ground wire?


One tiny wire has very little resistance. Turn up your Ohm meter to it's highest setting. Be sure to have it calibrated exactly the same for each test (zeroed out). The very good connection should read infinite but the tiny connection should show a tiny bit of resistance. It's difficult but not impossible. Get a friend to help so the resistance in your body doesn't affect the data. Use one hand and new clips.

I have a 1970's Panasonic Flip Clock Radio. (Model RC6530) The radio works just fine, but the flp clock stopped flipping. There is power going to the unit. I can also hear a low hum from the flip...


It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.
