Re: turntables

Your power transformer blew. The fuses in these models don't offer much protection, when it comes to more serious power surges. And the only other thing that would be blown is the transformer - a common issue. You can purchase parts for this model HERE, however, I do not suggest replacing this part yourself, as it is a little tricky, and you may damage your unit ever more, if not done properly.

Re: turntables

1)I know it might sound silly, but try using different plug sockets, ie down stairs. This is to see if its a problem with sockets. Once had a dodgy power cord that kept one deck from turning on. 2) Check the the voltage is set correctly on both decks, by looking at the hole on the left side of the platter. My little brother messsed around with the turn switch and it blow the internal fuses years ago. If none of the above work it means the equipment could have had an electrical surge and knocked out the internal fuses. Can help you with that if needed. Let me know. Peace DJ Nyce

The power supply of the turntable needs checking. It could be just a fuse or something more serious, such as a faulty transformer.

Recently there was a thunderstorm in my area and now when I plug my turntable in no power is getting to it, I'm presuming the fuse has blown, is this in the turntable itself/can I change it or do I need to...

If you can get inside the turntable then you should look for a glass looking fuse or anything that says "ma" or "A" on it. The fuse itself will have what it type it is on it. Some circuit boards have the ratings on too! If you can't find one then replace the power supply adapter.

My 1210 was working fine the other day, my daughter was playing around with it turning it on and off but nothing too harsh. I went to turn it on today and there is no power what so ever. How do I change...

Your turntable may be plugged in to a "switched" power outlet on your receiver/amplifier. If it is, your amplifier needs to be on for your turntable to get power.

No Power to turntable

Why not try replacing the whole power chord with new one instead of just changing the fuse ( but you will have to splice the two wire lines at the end of your turntable console if not to resolder it, and be sure to properly mask it with an electrical tape to avoid electrical hazard/shock to anyone... ;-)

Stopped working

No! I meant trying another wall outlet. If you do not have a meter to check the power then try another plug. The motor will usually have some hum or noise if there is power to the motor. Steve

Stopped turning

Try removing the cover and looking for a broken belt. Make sure that the motor is spinning too. If you find a broken belt, let me know and I'll help you find a replacement.

Good luck!
