Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
I assume you mean the output makes the crackling sound, not the turntable itself.
Is it only the turntable doing this? No other source? If yes, turn off your receiver and manually operate every function and control throughout its range and toggle every switch and button repeatedly to remove oxidation. The Tape Monitor control is famous for causing droputs even when it is OFF.
Listen carefully to the sound.
Is the sound dropping out or is the volume fluctuating?
Is the turntable tracking proerly or is it skipping, lifting off the platter?
Is it on both channels, one or random?
DE-select the phono on the receiver so the following is not passed through to the speakers.
Remove and reinstall the RCA phono plugs from your receiver using a twisting motion to remove oxidation. How is it now?
