Hi, this is much more than the fuse. im sensing a board issue with a capacitor. there may be a cold solder also that has lost its hold as well. check the board for any lose or cracks. and discoloring.

No power when plugged in ? Is there a fuse ?


The best way to find out is remove the base of the deck. You should see the power supply then. If the deck is main's powered the transformer will be seen. Some have fuses built into them, so it needs checking. Some decks use a mechanical switch to turn on the motor. That can break or stop engaging. But this will only apply if the deck doesn't have a power light indication. A deck with an on off switch for the power can also suffer a broken switch.

Wont start as there is no power to the deck


A faulty on off switch can sometimes cause the power to fail. Some decks have micro switches that get bent out of place.

When i turn one of my decks on it trips the electric out. ive tried changing fuse in the plug but same thing happens


Something inside your deck is faulty and drawing excessive current. It could be either the transformer or anything to do with the power supply or the motor.

I turned the hertz button from 50hz to 60hz on the back of the decks and there was a buzzing noise for about 10 seconds then just turned off.have i blown a fuse inside? or will i have to take them to...


There's really no way to tell long distance, but I recommend that you check inside and HOPE that there's a fuse that you can replace. Otherwise the turntable will require professional repair. For future safety, never change a voltage or frequency setting while an appliance is switched on or even just connected to power.

No power in either turntable


maybe the power source that goes into the deck itself has dissconected, but it is strange that niether would work...so im guessing the decks are fine...it might be your extension cable...or u have had a power surge, if that has happened...then you need to seek profesinal help...and unfortunally, your decks may have died. But check your plugs/extension cables...etc....it should be a basic problem, and easily fixable

No lights or responce (power issue)


If you do not see fuses on the smaller pc board, next to the main PC board, underneath the turntable platter, then you don't have any. Not all 1200s series turntables have these fuses. So, that means you more than likely blew the Technics power supply / transformer.

Not an easy fix, and I don't recommend you do this, as seeing how you did not replace the pop-up light correctly, it seems you lack the experience. When you saw that spark, that means that you did not shield the pop-up light wires properly, a big mistake. It more than likely touched the cabinet, and created a short - very common. This short is enough to take out he power supply.

You will have to take your unit to an authorized repair center for repair.

Good Luck!

Deck does not play/turn on


Problem is not the fuses, but the power supply / power transformer has blown. This is why you should always wrap exposed wiring with electrical tape or heatshrink tubing.

The power supply can be purchased HERE, but this is not an easy replacement. And if you blew it by not properly replacing the Pop-up light, than I DON'T suggest you try to replace the power supply on your own either. You could really cause even more damage, and possible harm to yourself and your property.

There are two internal fuses that you can check, their positions and values are determined by which country the unit was sold in. You can get a copy of the service manual on the link below: http://www.backspin.org/sl1200mk2.pdf Make sure it's unplugged & the tonearm is secure before going inside!! I have indicated the position of the fuse in the attached picture. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
