The power supply of the turntable needs checking. It could be just a fuse or something more serious, such as a faulty transformer.

Ineed remote for technics hifi model nos slhd60


The only place to try, would be Andrews Electronics, in Valencia, CA. It may be discontinued if it's older than about 2 years. Happy hunting.

Numark ttx shortage


Shortage?, no the vestax pdx 2000mk2 has shortage, the numark is not a well build unit from the. inside. I just can buy the ttx in store. Which is inside mostly oem%#}#%. Buy a te hnics , refurbish it yourself and tkake the kabusa straight/s-shape option, then atleast you have a proper tonearm and unit, but scewing arm together is very bad for your stiffness and the s-shape is very bad . Just but a s shape board and straight arm. You miss the accuracy and stiffness, which aint great on a te hnics also and the connection is a sad built for the money. I purchased half a year ago a vestax pdx 3000 mix and that unit is way better built then the the 2000 pro with the j arm

and it\'s new from the inside.

My mk-5 is also new, costing me 1000 euro and then i have a pgd. micro electronics. The average technics mk 2 is worn out stuf and a waste of money and the refurbished ones, ain\'t real refurbished. Buy a pioneer, then atleast it\'s new, with oem parts inside offcourse. Or you have to live in the netherlands and i can tell you what to need to need to renew on a technics, which are all caps, a lot a resistors , the two var resistors, tonearmcables and removing that stupid standard rca system and put nice rca\'s on a plate on it and the feet for new feet or just isokinets, since used technics have no usefull rubber anymore in the feet.

Trying to track down a tonearm plug in connector and stylus for an SL-BD22. Is it possible to get the connector separately? Can you recommend the best place to get them?

If so I have 1 in stock $39.90 USD. I also have an original Technics EPC 24 P mount cartridge with stylus which were fitted to SLBD series $49,90 USD. Cheers John. styluscity@gmail.com

The stylus skips across the record, despite readjusting the tracking force and the anti-skate control. After repeated adjustments for too little and too much weight, nothing helps. Does the stylus need...


If your needle skips across the record, then there is only 1 thing wrong with it... it's broken, and needs to be replaced.

If after you've replaced the stylus, and problem persists, then you have something a little more serious... Tonearm damage. More than likely not, but just in case replace the stylus does not help.

Good luck!

Technics SL-1700 Mk2, tonearm doesn't lower, cueing doesn't work


There's a rubber belt or O ring that broke. I couldn't find one at Technics, so I took the old parts to the hardware store and found an O ring in plumbing parts that was very close. Been working for years just fine!

No Power to turntable


Why not try replacing the whole power chord with new one instead of just changing the fuse ( but you will have to splice the two wire lines at the end of your turntable console if not to resolder it, and be sure to properly mask it with an electrical tape to avoid electrical hazard/shock to anyone... ;-)

How old is my Technics SL 1210 Mk2


Here's some information for you. Since your unit is a SL1210MK2, it may be harder to determine the age of the unit:

It is possible to tell the year (and the month) when the SL-1200 was manufactured from the serial number on the back or bottom of the turntable. SL-1200 serial numbers are in two different formats, depending on the date of manufacture. It isn't exactly possible to determine the decade in which the SL-1200 in question was manufactured, as the serial number contains only the last digit of the year. If the year digit is 8, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1978, 1988 or 1998. If the year digit is 0, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1980, 1990 or 2000. One rule of thumb is that old-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1970s and 1980s, while new-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1990s and beyond.
Old-format serial number: NHOJF20765 (SL-1200 manufactured 1982)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured. These serial numbers contain no indication of the month of manufacture. It should be noted that serial numbers in this format contain no letters following digits.
New-format serial number: GE4FB001154 (SL-1200 manufactured June 2004)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured, while the month of manufacture is indicated by the letter following it. Months are coded as letters between A and L inclusive; A indicates January, B indicates February, and so on.
In addition to the above, all the SL-1200MK2s from the 70's and early 80's have a 4 inch diameter plate where the RCA and ground wires enter the chassis in the rubber base of the unit. The later models have a smaller hole through which the wires enter the unit.

Technics 1210 Mk 2 Pitch Fade Problems


You have to understand any sort of calibration meter will only tell you if the pitch control is faulty - or excessively too fast/too slow. If your units are just 'off' then that is a matter of a simple calibration of your pitch controls back to original factory specs. Also, just so you know, the pitch controls on the 1200s are not really calibrated when they leave the factory. They are basically installed, set a default setting, then shipped off. So, you'll often times have 2 turntables with sequential serial numbers, but they are both off.

Here is a tutorial on calibrating your unit back to original factory settings: TECHNICS SL1200MK2 / SL1210MK2 TURNTABLE PITCH CALIBRATION

You can also print this out and give it to the technician who serviced your units. Also ask him what kind of calibration meter, or unit did he use to test? Just curios.
