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.

What compatible turntable on the market for Technics stack system.SA EH670


If the amp has a left and right phono jacks for a record deck, you can use any turntable you want. Though you will need a separate power plug socket for the deck.

Just a thought but wouldn't it be easier to find some kind of power supply converter to knock the 60HZ down to 50HZ?

Faulty switch? If all else fails go inside! Often from the underside of the turntable and see what you can find.

Me technic 1210s wont *** on ive tryed change in the fuses wiv 1 from tv an still nothing any ideas?


It could have got an internal fuse, not the one in the plug. Also the power switch might have broken. There's only one way to find out! Take the bottom off and have a look.

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.

Humming noise/ feedback


your mixer should be grounded by the power cord, and the decks have a seperate ground wire which connects, usually on a screw terminal, to the mixer, which provides the ground for the decks. I would try the headshells to make sure they are tight and connected correctly also make sure the power socket on the wall is earthed properly.

Platter or motor or what?


Been seeing a lot of problems like this on the newer decks. if the lights instead of moving smoothly are moving a bit, then stopping a little, then moving a bit more. or just wobbling a little bit usually has something to do with the motors... I have also just had to have mine replaced to was having the same problem.... expensive

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.
