SOURCE: technics mk2 tone arm replacement

once you soldered to circuit board place - this might help Advanced Tonearm stuff Tightening the suspension on your tonearm Some TT's have tonearms which seem to be loose. If you grab the tonearm and pull it gently back and forth and it seems loose you can tighten it. It shouldn't move at all. A loose suspension can severely affect it's performance - from jumping needles to binding. It's pretty easy to tighten the suspension. You'll need a small flat screwdriver and a large one. Use the large one to loosen the outer locking screw on the top of the pivot point. Now use the smaller screwdriver to loosen up the smaller screw. Put a drop of oil where the bearings are (under that top support on the other end of the adjustment screw) so that it doesn't bind. Now tighten the small screw slowly until it just contacts the bearings. Adjust the tightness so the tonearm doesn't wiggle if you pull on it but leave it loose enough for the tonearm to pivot freely without binding. Adjust carefully and don't overtighten otherwise the bearings will be damaged! When done, tighten up the locking screw. Tightening up the headshell locking ring Have you put on your headshell, twisted that knurled tightener at the end of the tonearm as tight as possible and have found that the headshell still moves around? What will happen is that the headshell won't sit parallel to the record but may be tilted as a result of twisting of the headshell. This usually occurs when you change headshells a lot or if you've had your turntable for a while, and can contribute to needle jumping so here's what you do to fix it. First read 3.2 on base disassembly. Remove the rubber base. There will be this big piece of hard black plastic covering almost everything. You'll need to remove it. To remove the tonearm assembly look for three screws (all formerly under that black plastic) and unscrew them. Be careful not to drop the tonearm when you remove that last screw! Now, remove the tonearm assembly from the rest of the 1200, and look at the bottom of the tonearm where the headshell is put in. There will be two tiny philips screws there. Get a jewelers screwdriver of the CORRECT size and tighten those up. Put the headshell on and try wiggling it to make sure everything is right. Now put your tonearm back on and close everything back up. hope this helps peace DJ Nyce

For Technics parts, check www.1200s.com, for a service center in your area, check the Panasonic web site (parent company of Technics): http://www.panasonic.co.uk/customer-Support/svc-dealer-locator.asp As for instructions on doing this, it's not an easy fix. You have to solder 5 very thin (as thin as dental floss) to a circuit board, and they don't leave much room for error. Oh, and the circuit board is discontinued, so if you damage the board due to self-repair, you can't have it replaced. So, thing twice before attempting this repair yourself.

Oh boy. This is always interesting. Here is a part schematic which will help you in figuring out how to put this back together:

http://1200s.com/images/Parts/MK2_tonearm.jpg

However, there's a little more to it than just putting it back together. YOu have to make sure the wires are routed correctly.

How did you disassemble it? Did you just remove the screws from the top (incorrect), and go that route, or did you go from the bottom of the unit (the correct way)?

I get an intermittent loud hum using NAD AV316 amplifier, with stereo speakers(B connection) with phono input from Dual 606 turntable. Hum increases/changes when tone arm on turntable is touched.


The hum of course is the 60 cycle line AC voltage. Make sure that the routing of the AC power plug is as distant as possible from the stereo RCA cables.

The most likely problem is the connection of the phono cartridge to the wires in the arm. These connections usually are silver plated and become oxidized creating a bad connection. Remove the cartridge and using a fine eraser polish the connections. There is a ground connection that makes the five wire connection. Be super carfull these terminals are very easy to break

The phono connections to the stereo is very low voltage subject to interference. The connection to the magnetic pickup at the tone arm is low impedance and is inductive. Any poor connection between the cartridge up to the AV316 will produce this hum. Continue to check connections and swap cables with a known good to resolve.

I have switched the left and right cables to ensure that the cable is not the problem.

Hope this helps?

Tone arm on technics Sl-BD22 lifts before the end of an album


the anti-skate is set wrong, this stops the arm skatting on to the label in the middle of the record & destroying your stylus tip.

Why is the right side of my Technics turntable dropping out and giving me a ground hum?


It sounds like a bad connection to the cartridge, perhaps even the cartridge itself.

I have a Dual CS714Q turntable with a constant hum on output. Any suggestions?


Hello!
Did you connect single black ground wire to the "ground" terminal at your amp? Probably not! Or, it got stepped on it, while moving around. Professional of hi-fi turntables using magnetic cartridges and require 2 well shielded audio cables, connected directly to the cartridge, plus separate ground wire, which attached to all the metal parts of tone arm and body. Failure to connect this wire to the body(metal) or the amplifier, will cause this loud "hum".
thanks,
Alex.

I have recently removed the tone arm assembly and replaced the tonearm rest on my 1210's and now the tonearm is stiff horizontally so it stays in the same place and won't move across with the groove....


Check the arm wires have not got caught around the anti skate mechanism.
Did you adjust the screw / lock nut on top of the arm?. It's not supposed to be moved but if you did it might be to tight.

Louder sound signal out off the right hand side of my system think its the tone arm but need help


First reverse the deck plugs to your amp to make certain it's not something to do with that.
Disconect the left and right wires from the cartridge. With your finger & thumb grab hold of each channel wire. It should hum/buzz. If there is no difference then the cartridge is faulty. If there is a difference, I would have a look inside the turntable (access via the bottom) you might find a pre-amp or something wrong in it.
If the problem is in your amp, trace the cartridge pre-amp via the wiring. You might find what might be the cause there. Most by the way are a single IC that does all the work.

Technics sl 1200 MK2 WEAK SOUND


Regarding the poor sound quality (and possibly the skipping):
check the needle condition, see if exchanging it with a needle (or the entire pickup head) from a working turntable does any good.

Check the pickup connection pins (contacts on the pickup head and on the end of the wires coming through the arm from the unit), see if there is any dirt or oxydation and clean the contacts if necessary, also check for any damage to the wires.

As for the skipping - a heavily worn needle may affect the sound quality and cause skipping as well - if cahnging the needle (or the pickup head) doesn't make a change, try to realign the weight on the tone arm so that the pickup head will become a bit heavier, this could help somewhat (before you actually try to realign the weight, try to put a small coin or a small weight of some kind on the pickup head while it is playing a record, if the skipping goes away, you need to realign the tone arm weight).

This could also be a problem with the tone arm lifting mechanism (may be obstructed by something or damaged so it won't let the tone arm sit properly onto the record and "grab" the groove).

I just mentioned a few things you might want to check, but don't take anything for granted, the problem may as well be elsewhere in the unit.
