Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable

1 Answer

Just got a brand new techincs deck, never had one before. The instructions for fitting the lid say to just put it on top of the deck, only there are no brackets/hinges that I can tell. Do I have to buy these seperately?

Vestax pdx 2000s. Where can I get tonearm counterweights? I cannot find any online many thanks!!


I recommend you search for just tonearm counterweights. Rather than your make of deck. You will then have to compare them to see if it will fit your arm. Amazon do have them for different makes. Vestax might be just a name given to a shop brand, the deck itself being made by a more well known company.

I need to replace the top plastic dust cover for jvc la31.


There's an odd named website called "Organ Doner Parts" which has some spare parts for this model - you could try them. Otherwise your best bet is e-bay. I don't think you will find one to be honest, as this deck is very old now and most plastic lids on turntables are easily damaged making them rare and greatly wanted.

I recently received a Viking Solid State Record Player. and I need to buy a needle/cartiridge for it but I dont know WHERE to buy it or WHICH NEEDLE to buy! This is the Model: N 2 SFG 249


You always go on the installed cartridge for any deck when finding the correct stylus (not called needles now). It should have a model number on it, put that into Google and you should find the stylus. You can always fit a new cartridge and stylus. It's just a question of which one will fit into the headshell. That way you can get better sound.

Where can i buy Gem Sound BJL-1150 Turntable parts.? ive looked almost everywhere but no luck. ineed needles and belts


What you need to is look at the cartridge that's fitted to the deck. Just put the model number into google and search for that. If you can't find that all you have to do is look for a new cartridge that will fit the headshell. It doesn't have to be the same make. The quality will be what you are willing to pay.
The best solution I can suggest for the belts is to measure them, Starting with the diameter, than the thickness all in MM. Then put those into google again, with the words "Record deck drive belt".
Go for the nearest to your dimensions.

DP29F turntable has static


either you haven't earthed the deck to the amp, on the proper ground screw, or your head shell wires are touching.
if the cartage(the thing the needle slots into) unscrews from the tone-arm, try unscrewing it,then putting back on, nice & tight....
if it still does it then it's your RCA leads that go from the deck to the amp(phono cables).
normally you would wire a deck/decks to a mixer first, then from the master out on the mixer to the AUX IN on the amp.

When I put an album on it skips for the first few songs then plays fine. The records are not warped. could something be wrong with the turntable. It happened with 5 or 6 albums I tried.


HELLO

Make sure you have the deck set up correctly! Check the headshell - is the cartridge out of alignment or is the stylus worn?

Also, it may be that the counterweight is set too lightly for the cartridge and check the anti-skate control as well (example if the arm is tracking at 2 grams, anti-skate must be set at 2).

Follow these instructions for setting the counter balance:

Turn the weight so that the arm is just floating then set the balance ring (with the numbers on) you will see there is a line. Turn the ring not the weight to the ZERO mark where the line is on the top of the arm. Now turn the weight and ring together where it moves forward down the arm and set it at about 2 grams.

Now set the arm using the height adjustment that is the ring fitted to armboard and make sure the arm is straight (if not, the stylus will mistrack). Now try the deck again. You might have to make adjustments to the tracking weight again so whatever you have it set to, set the anti-skate to the same!

Good luck with it (:-)

I have an old Thorens TD125 Mk2 turntable with a SME pick up arm. I haven't used it for years and whilst it all lights up, unfortuntately the turnatable does not go round. I can feel resistance on the...


HELLO
Right, first off I don't know the deck very well in question....this is more advisory. Have a look on the internet at www.theanalogdept.com and you will find many things regarding THORENS decks including links to other websites. Myself, I own a Thorens TD166mk2.
Judging by your posting it SOUNDS like something needs lubricating - not quite sure what though - all depends on where you had it stored. If it was just put into an attic, remember that heat and cold will affect the deck in loft spaces significantly.
If you have any doubts about looking at the deck yourself, then take it to a reputable hifi dealership for servicing.

I've knocked the start button off my 1210's..brass shaft has dropped..HELP !


No easy way to fix this. You can do this one of two ways:

1) The correct way
You'll have to open up your turntable, and this means going in from the bottom. Instructions for opening your turntable are located HERE. Once your inside, you'll see the area where you need to be working. You'll need to order a new On/Off switch, which can be found HERE. Just put back on the way you took off the old one, and that's pretty much it. There is a small spring and a small metal ball bearing you have to be careful you don't lose when removing the old power knob shaft. This is held down by a cir-clip on a white plastic piece. You have to remove this piece in order to swap out the old brass shaft with the new shaft/knob.

2) The incorrect way - but easy to do.
Try and grab the brass shaft with a pair of needle nose pliers or similar. Grab your broken On/Off knob and put some crazy glue on the inside where the shaft aligns. Carefully place the knob on the shaft, and hold in place. This will be somewhat tricky, but you'll figure out a way. You might have to flip your turntable upside down in order to get the shaft to stick out. Just make sure if you do flip the turntable upside down, that you don't rest your turntable on your tonearm - otherwise you'll have an even bigger issue.

Good Luck!
