Question about Technics SL-1210M5G Turntable
My warranty has just expired and now suddenly my pitch adjustment is very stiff when I try to move it. I opened up the top of it and saw that there is some grease showing around the top as if it leaked. I opened up my other turntable and did not see any grease. Is there a way to fix that by taking it apart and removing the adjustment? Or will I have to send it in to get it repaired?
What did you open up? The top of what? If you could be specific, I can direct you.
If your pitch is stiff, try spraying some contact cleaner or similar - DO NOT USE WD40. Use an electrical contact cleaning solution, such as CAIG DEOXIT or CAIG FADERLUBE both work very well, and are good for electronic contacts.
If this does not work, then maybe the pitch control knob/shaft is slightly bent? Any physical damage?
Other than that, there isn't a whole lot you can do, unless you replace the pitch control - Technics Pitch Control.
