SOURCE: Pitch LED not working

LED probably burned out, or installed reverse (+/- reversed) - Or, you installed a clickless (MK3/MK5) pitch control in an MK2 turntable.

Did you do this yourself? Or did you have this professional done? If professionally, and the LED does not work, ask for your money back! This is electronics repair 101!

If you did this yourself, then more than likely you installed the LED backwards. The longer lead is the positive lead. If the LED did not burn out, you might be able to just remove it and switch it around. If it does not work, then it probably shorted (more than likely). Also make sure that none of your solder is touching. This could cause a bad short to your entire turntable. So you want to becareful.

If you need any further assistance, feel free to give our service dept a call. We are masters with the 1200s, and fix over 300 a year! 1.866.668.1596 ext 1

SOURCE: muffled sound

HELLO!
I don't think the problem is the actual stylus (needle), it sounds like the magnetic cartridge has become faulty in some way (it does happen). My advice is try another cartridge and stylus (borrow if you can). If the audio stays the same then it MAY be the wiring in the arm going through the plinth (deck) and these wires terminate to pins or a small pcb board in the turntable where the phono cables and arm wires are connected. There may be a bad connection inside.
Also, make sure your tonearm counterweight and anti-skate are set up properly as well as this can have an effect on audio.
I hope this helps as I have been into audio since I was a kid!

You MAY have contamination in the slider.You could try putting a little CRC226 into the slot and work the control. Use ONLY this product CRC226 available at Home Depot in the electrical dept/

My pitch slider has snaped off my cdj gemini 203's ? how do i fix it ?


The fader slider will have to be replaced. It is a bit of work, however finding the exact replacement often is hard unless you get it through the manufacturer.

Issues with turntables picking up speed when trying to time start off. It's hard to match beats when the table does not start on cue or slowly try to catch up to speed. What's wrong with them?


This seems to be a pitch control issue. controller,
replacing \t,could be worn over time,
SL1200 Technics - if you want a solid long lasting excellence of sound reproduction for many years to come,

I had the same pitch control issue,
happened on one of my decks so I replaced the controller and good to go from there,

Another important tip -
never lubricate the controls sliders with any thing apart from the correct greases or oils applied by the manufactuer,most people dont think of the damage caused by the cleaners they use ,some aerosols eat away the fine oil that lubricates the pitch control sliders making them dry and brittle eventually cracking producing odd random performance issues,

hope this helps,cheers Misterdj

Your pitch control is faulty or dry. Try spraying wd 40 into the pitch sliding hole form top to bottom. Dont over spray it. Just a bit from top to bottom will do. If issue still persists, then there's some capacitors are weak which controls this pitch.

Tempo slider does not increase or decrease when move up or down


I am in the same boat. I disassembled both of mine and had them powder coated at a paint shop last summer. Both were working fine but now the pitch on one unit is not working. And the green zero lock light stays on no matter which way I adjust the ptich.

My 33 & 45 speed giving problems


HELLO
I have just posted a cure for this deck, it is to do with the microswitches under the speed select buttons - they need to be replaced. Just repaired mine today - now there are no more problems selecting speeds.
If the speed goes back to 33 when the deck is switched off, this is because 33 is the default.
ALL THE BEST!

Pitch problem out of nowhere!


HI Mattgood2

I believe this is a common problem more evident in decks that have a very hard life,
You pitch controls are probably due for replacements so I suggest you take then to the service agents to service them,
unless you know how to do the servicing

I grew up with Decks under my fingertips so I have seen this before and remember the only satisfing fix was a service and the pitch controls had to be replaced,

I thought I would have a go re-servicing myself and found far too many things to cover once the covers were off,

There are many things that need attention on the inside of these decks and the precise placement of each component is vital to the correct operation of this unit,peace of mind really

It takes a small amount of care to maintain these decks,
when they die or fail get a pro to fix the problem.
guess work only makes you look like an "Amatuer"

Please dont be offended (by my words) Ive done it too,LOL
I had a full dance floor and then nothing,the decks got replaced

What have you used to clean the pitch control sliders???
