Question about Technics SL-1200 Turntable
If after trying another wall outlet, you still have no power to the turntable you may want to check inside the unit. Make sure the cord is not plugged into an outlet when you do this.
I am assuming that you have the Technics SL-1200 turntable.
Take the bottom off the turntable by removing the many screws in the bottom while the turntable is placed on a table upside down in front of you. After getting all those screws out, you will be able to just lift the bottom piece right up and off of the turntable. This turntable has several circuit boards in it. Look at the board that the A/C cord goes into and there should be a glass fuse on it. It is a small board with a couple of wires going to it and also a switch that comes from the blue, brown and red wires on that board. The glass fuse could be blown, if so replace it. If the fuse is good, you may need to check the switch or the power transformer. The transformer has 2 red wires going to it from that same board.
Let me know if you need to check the switch and transformer. If so, I will try to help you but you will need a multimeter and know how to use it.
