Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
I have had my technic 1210 mk2s for two days it fell and i caught it bt the arm and it snapped off please help me
Unfortunately, not an easy fix. You will need to replace the entire tonearm, and this should only be done by a qualified service center.
If you would like to try it yourself, check out this site - http://djprolab.com - their are DO It Yourself repair videos for this model.
NOTE: This is NOT an easy fix, and if you had to ask this type of question, I am going to assume you don't have much knowledge with electronic repair.

this could be the tone arm bearings too tight,damaged or in need of a little oil.
i had a similar problem on my 1210, it kept jumping all the time,ruining my mixes! it turned out it was the bearings too tight.
unscrew the counter weight so that the arm hovers over the platter and move it to the centre with anti-skate on zero.
slowly turn the anti-skate round to three and the arm should move over to the arm rest smoothly,if it stops before the arm rest or isnt smooth theres your problem,loosen the bearing adjuster slightly and try the hover routine again until its as smooth as you can get it. it is possible,if the turntable has been transported without dust covers the bearings or the pin could be slightly damaged from knocks on the top of the tone arm assembly.
let me know how you get on or if you need any more help.
