You have a fault on the quartz-lock speed control electronics. It may be a simple fix, it may be not.

It will require specialist investigation. A Technics dealer should be able to advise you, and arrange shipping back to Technics for repair if you decide that is the best thing to do.

Couple of options , but first cleanen the pithfader and variable resistor pitch vr3 i thought, it's an open one , he needs allways to be replaced, even technics says so and first clean the board, inside and on youtube and this side there enough movies and text how to do it, and check the pitchfader cables very good.

No power to my 1210 MK2s


HI,

Open the turntable. It sounds like the on/off switch is bad. Remove the platter and screws with a phillips screw driver and just make sure the connections are in place. make sure you disconnect the power first.

The platter on my 15 year old SL-BD22 turntable does not move when I move the tonearm into postion to play a record. Do I need a new motor? If so, where can I find the original equipment, what will it...


Not certain you will need a new motor - yet- !
First since the arm movement turns on the turntable some kind of switch must come into play. These break or move out of poistion, so check that first. The access I suspect will be through the base of the turntable.
As most of these types of turntables use a 12 volt motor, you can attach a 9 volt battery to it's terminals and that should make it spin. If it's dead sluggish or doesnn't spin fast or at all, it's dead. If it does spin then there's something up with the power supply section to it.

EVERYTIME I PLAY A RECORD IT DRAGS TO PICK UP SPEED


Are you sure you have a Technics SL1200MK2 Direct Drive Turntable? If so, then there is a major problem with the drive system. This can only be diagnosed and repaired by a qualified technician.

If your turntable is not the Techics SL1200MK2, and you have no idea what turntable you have, look at the model's label, if it says BELT DRIVE - this is the reason why it drags to pick up speed. If it says DIRECT DRIVE, then take it to a service center for repair.
