You more than likely have to have the pitch control replaced or cleaned.

Hi, I have just bought a second hand Technics SL-1200 MK2 and it looks great overall. There is one problem though with the pitch. When I want to slow down the speed a bit, the platter starts to spin a...


Your problem Is more than likely one of two easy to fix things. First we'll try the easiest. that would be reset the centerpoint of your pitch controll. All you need is a Phillips screwdriver and a little time and this picture: Apparently the picture is too blurry to read so let me give you the link: http://www.deckdoctor.com.au/TECHNIC%20SL1200%20PCB.pdf
you don't have to worry about all the technical stuff really it's just started look at the strobe lights and slowly turn the screw as you move the slider back to Center and make sure you bring this keep the strobe stable. if that doesn't fix your problem, then you do have to worry about the complicated stuff. If you are not familiar with all of that, I would suggest just replacing the pitch control. it's cheaper than paying what it would cost you at a repair shop and very straight forward. You don't even need to saulder. They don't cost very much and the part number is right there you can get one on eBay for pretty cheap. Good luck

CDJ 1000MK2. CDJ pitch control is out of calibration. The pitch plays at zero when the slider is at what should be the slowest setting. How do i reset zero to the middle of the slider.


There is a fine adjust on the pitch control circuit board, however if it is staying at Zero at the extremes then it's time for a new pitch control :(

I own a SL1200 MKII and when the light "turn on" in the pitch control slider (green LED) the speed is not correct (big dots on platter move slightly) .Could you please give me some tips to solve...


Use the slide on the pitch control to move forward or backward until the dots stay steady. If it is a little old the quartz control won't work as well.

How to calibrate control on a technic 1200 by sight


Put the pitch slider to +6 and adjust the internal preset until the top set of dots on the platter are stationary.
Check again with the pitch at +3.3 if the dots are stationary then job done!, if not then the pitch slider is worn and perfect calibration won't be possible until the pitch slider is replaced.

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.

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

Platter problem


THE PITCH slider or the variable resistor could have gone faulty. A new pitch is only $25 i think. They may need to salvage the pcb from your old one as technics no longer manufacters them. I've never seen the pitch led stay on lock when the actual pitch is not at zero. Hopefully the pitch did not short out the brake or the variable resistors on the motor's circuitboard.



keep me poted.
