Technics 1210 platter won't stop, goes crazy when press stop button

Hi there, ive just changed the phone cables on my deck and attempted to replace the target light. I realised that i had the wrong light for the target light (which was blown) so i insulated the wires with electrical tape to prevent them from shorting out. However the wires may have touched when i was performing this. My problem is - when i press stop the platter changes speed and makes a grinding like sound. The platter will then not slow until it is powered down. Any suggestions will be much appreciated! thanks

    i think it may be the braking? as the platter grinds when i try to change the speed (both slowing and speeding)

As everything was normal before you started the work, I'm thinking you might have disturbed something. Such as caused a wiring plug to come loose. Maybe even a bad solder joint somewhere?

There are 2 problems with the my deck: 1. The +-0 light for the pitch will not work but everything else about the pitch works fine. 2. The deck will not change from 33bpm to 45bpm, I have replaced the...


Hi, please do this test for me. With the deck running on 33 speed and the pitch control set to 0 use your finger on the platter centre and speed it up manually as much as you can. Doe's the quartz lock lamp come on? If not then open the deck up and loosen off the fixing screws on the circuit board that has the 33/45 buttons. Try to change speed with the board loosened off. If none of the above makes any difference replace the quartz lock neon. Use only original Technics neon. As a matter of interest have you done any mods to the deck? Cheers John,

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.

Platter or motor or what?


Been seeing a lot of problems like this on the newer decks. if the lights instead of moving smoothly are moving a bit, then stopping a little, then moving a bit more. or just wobbling a little bit usually has something to do with the motors... I have also just had to have mine replaced to was having the same problem.... expensive

Technics 1210 mk2 problem with pitch and lights


Check that your voltage settings are set correctly. This is located underneath your turntable platter. If you remove the slipmat, you will see 2 holes on the metal platter. Rotate the platter till you see the voltage switch, located @ the 9'o'clock position. Make sure it's set to your correct settings (N.America = 115V / Euro = 220V). If not, you will need a flat head screw driver to switch it. Before you switch it, make sure your unit is off and unplugged. After you swich it, it should be ok.

If your still having issues with the speed and the pop-up light, then there is something seriously wrong, and will need to be checked by a technician. Sometimes a resistor or IC will go bad, causing the speed issue, but for the pop-up light - that's usually faulty wiring generally caused by an incorrect replacement.

Did you buy this new or used? Have you had this serviced recently?
