Question about Technics SL-1200 Turntable
Dear thimc (to whom it may concern) I'm having problems keeping the pitch steady after matching the bpms of both records. I've used other turntables so I know it's not me. I can still use them for parties without causing a train wreck (Which i had to learn the hard way),but I still want them working in good condition. feeling hopelfull. Armand
I know this problem has subsided, probably, but just in case someone else comes along with the same problem, you can find a detail instruction on djtutor.com (under repairs) but basically you take off the platter and un-screw the plastic cover, then you will see a blue circle with notches, by turning it to either the right speeds up the platter motor and to the left slows the platter, but you will have to put on the platter and turn it on to see the changes that you need to make, watch the video * this is for the technic sl1200,

Sounds like the pitch needs replacing or tighting. Get them serviced. Ask your equipment supplier shop. Good way to check the decks are in sync is to place the pitch on each marked seting ie 0 / 2/ 4/etc making sure both decks are set to the same pitch adjustment speed. Look at the light from the on/off switch and check the 4x circles on the deck platter and make sure they are the same as each other. If you never used this before. set your eyes and pay attention, you will notice the pattern. I mix this way to get tunes roughly in time without listerning to the track - DJ EZ helped me with this years ago. peace DJ Nyce
