Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable

1 Answer

No Power to 1210s

I recently moved the location of my 1210s, but kept the setup and sockets the same.
Now neither deck has power.
The sockets are working fine and i've changed the fuses in both without any luck.

    Thanks for the advice, however i've already had help fixing this.
    The problem was one of the internal fuses which had blown.
    I replaced them and it's working fine.
    Quite glad I didn't have to replace the PSU.

Problem is not the fuses, but the power supply / power transformer has blown. This is why you should always wrap exposed wiring with electrical tape or heatshrink tubing.

The power supply can be purchased HERE, but this is not an easy replacement. And if you blew it by not properly replacing the Pop-up light, than I DON'T suggest you try to replace the power supply on your own either. You could really cause even more damage, and possible harm to yourself and your property.

No engine power with deck engaged


Make sure the deck turns freely and there is no large build up of rubbish under the deck to create a drag, if all is ok, it could well be a fuel starvation issue, if it has an in line fuel filter chage it, if it has a fuel pump check its function by removing the hose from the carb and cranking the engine ( there should be a good flow of fuel from the hose )

I have a gateway desktop computer. Recently moved


Before you actually replace the power supply, check some other things first:
1. Wall socket
2. Power strip/surge protector
3. Power cable
4. On the back of the computer, where the power cable plugs into, is the red switch set to 115? It should be 115.
5. Make sure that the power cable is not connected to a regular extension cord. Power cable must plug directly into a surge protector that is not daisy-chained to another power strip, surge protector, or normal (household) extension cord. Surge protector must be directly plugged into wall socket.

If none of the above solve the problem, open up the case and ensure that all power connections are secure. Also check ALL other components' connections. Any loose connections can cause problems for you.

If everything is secure and the problem persists, replace the power supply.

PS2 slimline dropped on floor. Comes up saying 'can not read disc' Cleaned the lens.


This could be a few things. The most common problem I have seen after a unit has been dropped is the spindle that moves the laser back and forth comes out of the socket. Disassemble the unit and reinstall the spindle in the socket. Sometimes the laser goes out. New lasers can be purchased on ebay for less than $10.00. It could also be one of the two switches that lets the system know when the lid is closed. One of the switches is located on top of the power switch board and the other is located on the motherboard near the back left corner of the laser deck.

Computer will not load up - frozen on acer start screen?


Are you sure the monitor is plugged into the correct port? Also, check the monitor cable for bent pins. A small move shouldn't make this kind of difference. Eliminate that power strip and just plug the computer and monitor into an outlet.

Techics sl-1210s m3 turntable spins back on itself


You have a fault on the quartz-lock speed control electronics. It may be a simple fix, it may be not.

It will require specialist investigation. A Technics dealer should be able to advise you, and arrange shipping back to Technics for repair if you decide that is the best thing to do.

Your power transformer blew. The fuses in these models don't offer much protection, when it comes to more serious power surges. And the only other thing that would be blown is the transformer - a common issue. You can purchase parts for this model HERE, however, I do not suggest replacing this part yourself, as it is a little tricky, and you may damage your unit ever more, if not done properly.
