Try some anti-static record cleaner. You can also get an anti-static matt to put the records on.

Hi, I have a jammed height adjuster on a Technics SL1200MK2. Does anyone know a way of fixing this?


Quite often grit and dust gets into the thread and jams it up.
If the deck was in my workshop I'd remove the actual tonearm and phono cord etc and after applying a little penitrating fluid I'd "encourage" the arm base to unscrew - not subtle but somtimes a little force is needed.

EVERYTIME I PLAY A RECORD IT DRAGS TO PICK UP SPEED


Are you sure you have a Technics SL1200MK2 Direct Drive Turntable? If so, then there is a major problem with the drive system. This can only be diagnosed and repaired by a qualified technician.

If your turntable is not the Techics SL1200MK2, and you have no idea what turntable you have, look at the model's label, if it says BELT DRIVE - this is the reason why it drags to pick up speed. If it says DIRECT DRIVE, then take it to a service center for repair.

It's very simple. Next to the "tone arm" (the thing you pull across towards your vinyl, and place down to produce sound) is a silver piece which you slide up and down to change the pitch (the speed) of the vinyl. This can be increased even further by changing the 35rpm setting (button near the start/stop button) to 45rpm.

Hope that helps

So the unit powers up still? First and foremost check to make sure there is nothing forcing the platter to not rotate. If the platter is fine, and there is nothing holding it back, then you have a drive issue. More than likely one of the IC's (Integrated Circuits) failed, or it could be one or some of the other resistors which control the drive/platter on this unit.

Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix. You will need to take it to a qualified service center for repair. Make sure you ask the service center if they are familiar with the drive of the Technics SL1200MK2, many service centers are not.

Unfortunately, it does sound like a drive issue. Just so you know, these units are direct drive, so there is no physical motor. It's just a bunch of various circuits which drive the unit, and if any one of them go bad, it will affect your turntable speed. You will need to have this looked at by a service technician to determine which circuit is faulty.

How do i replace the phono leads on my technics 1210?


OK,

you have to turn it over, remove the rubber housing, remove the round metal guard from below...


ONLY DO THIS IF YOURE CONFIDENT IN SOLDERING SKILLS!!

You have to unsolder 4 leads ( stereo ) and solder on a new pair.

If you actually proceed, i can give you a better step by step.

But this process requires soldering..so.


Keep me posted.

Platter will not spin....


Um, why did you clean off the magnet with rubbing alcohol? Is this other DJ a service technician? Please be cautious when taking advice from friends or colleagues. Consult a professional, otherwise, you might cause more damage to your unit. Now, on to the problem at hand... This is a common problem with the MK2's, and not a power issue. This is a drive issue, and you will need to get it professionally serviced by an authorized Pansonic/Technics service center. There are various components which control the drive of the MK2's, so it's not easy to determine which is the culprit. 95% of the time it's one of the IC's (integrated circuits) or a few, or all. Which is why you will need to take to a service tech to get it looked at... Now, I know that's easier said then done, as many service centers do not provide support for turntables, especially the 1200s. So make sure you ask if they are knowledgeable with the Technics SL1200MK2 series. A lot of times, many of these places will be factory authorized to repair Technics/Panasonic items, but none have ever seen a Technics SL1200MK2 turntable, or worked on a direct drive unit. Many work on CD Players, Cassette Decks, etc. Our company offers free return shipping for all Nationwide service, and if your in NYC, we offer free pick up. Oh, and we are masters with the 1200s. Unfortunately, I don't think we can post our company information here, as I do not want to violate any agreements. So, with that said, do a search using the REPAIR SERVICE search option in FIXYA.com and go to the following section-> HOME AUDIO -> Audio Shelf Systems - we are listed.
