Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
The arm seems loose and twists a little. When I take it out of the tonearm rest, the whole thing twists so the bend is pointing downward. I can't seem to find anybody with the same problem anywhere on the internet.
It still plays fine and puts out a strong signal, but I am worried I am going to damage my records if I keep using it in this condition.
How can I fix this? I noticed there are 2 screws underneath right where it meets the rest of the tonearm assembly, If I remove the tonearm and tighten those could it fix it?
Most of your question was missing, so I'm guessing what you were going to say.
It sounds as though one of the arm pivots - one vertical and one horizontal- has worked loose or broken. They are very delicate precision parts.
Unless you are very skilled you should leave this job to a specialist turntable dealer to fix.
