Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
Both my 1210's have stopped working at the same time. I assume a power surge has taken them out. All other equipment on the same extension are fine (Mixer and amp). Fuses in both plugs have been checked and are fine. I have removed the plastic cover under the platter and inspected the two internal fuses f1 and f2 on both units. they are clear glass and I can see they are all fine. Is it possible for both transformers to go at the same time? Is there anything else I can try? Any input would be greatly appreciated thanks!

did you ever open the turntable. It sounds like the on/off switch is bad. Remove the platter and screws with a phillips screw driver and just make sure the connections are in place. make sure you disconnect the power first. let me know what happens afterwards.

If you remove the rubber pad from the top of the platter then you should be able to lift the platter off the servo drives' center shaft,
from memory the unit is not attached just held on by gravity,if the servo magnet is gone the take it in for a service and pay the man for his time,
My first problem on my 1200s was a pitch control issue and easy to fix,with a little cash,never use second hand parts unless you know what you are doing because when they fail on you while playing to a packed dance floor then youll get more of a supprise than you barginned for,

Here are some DIY steps that may help you fixing the problem.
I'm assuming that your unit is dead set without an standby LED
light and your outlet is live.1.Power
cord - check the cord it
might be opened (no continuity).This is due to frequent bending,pulling. 2. Power switch - check for dry joints, open contact. 3.Check the internal fuse-
sometimes the fuse fail because of the power
surge, replacing with new one will cure the problem, If this is the case
I've advice you to use surge protector/AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator).
However if the fuse blew again this is an indication that you have a shorted parts on the power supply, you may visit the
link http://www.fixya.com/support/r8053361-fuse_keeps_blowing for more info. If no reaction and
still the unit didn't power up then you have an open parts on the power supply.
4.If you see that the fuse is intact on the board, don't attempt to touch
anything because there somefatal components
stored electricity enough to hurt you with a simple mistake only.
The next steps should be done by an expert or qualified technician
because isolating the problem on the power supply is quite technical and fatal.
Also check if your unit is under warranty before opening the back
panel, it will void the warranty. Avail it because the manufacturer of your
unit will fix it for free or a little charge only.
Hope it may help you.
Thanks for using fixya.
