SOURCE: technic 1200 mk2 turntable wont spin

need to know if it powers up. Does it try to spin, do you hear it trying to spin? More than likely the on/off switch went bad. No, I am not referring to the ON/OFF knob. THere is a switch this engages when turned. The part is S601. You might also want to replace the Start/Stop switch as well. If neither work, then the issue is on the main PC board, and probably IC101, or IC201 with the problem. At this stage, you will have to have a service tech look at your unit.

SOURCE: all my vinyl sounds warped on turntable

Most common problem is the belt getting soft, especially if it has sat for a long time. It will get a weak spot where it sat on the drive pulley and every time the turntable goes around and hits that weak spot it will slow down a little making it sound like a warped album.

The belts are usually very easy to replace. Usually just lift off the turntable or there might be a small clip on the center pin, then it lifts off. Replacement belts can be ordered from several places, as shown in this search... http://www.google.com/search?&q=SL-B200+Technics+turntable+belt

If everything seems ok with the power , there is usally a small microswitch that sends power to the motor when the tone arm is moved to the start of the record.
The switch might be bad or the lever that actuates it (connected to the tone arm) might be sticking. You may have to take the bottom cover off or remove the platter to see it.
Also make sure the belt is looped over the motor shaft. If the motor runs but the belt still doesnt turn, belt might be bad.

SOURCE: New RCAS on Technics 1200 Getting a Loud Buzzing Noise

It is not suggested that you remove the ground cable. Performing the mod for the ground by soldering a bridge on the circuit board doesn't really do anything either than remove that buzz/ground hum. You've essentially removed the wire that grounds the turntable cabinet to the earth. The buzz is gone, but now your turntable is no longer grounded properly.

I would suggest replacing the ground cable to it's original state, then attach the Monster cables.

If this does not work, then either there is an issue with the soldering to the board, or the board itself might be damaged. You might want to look at the trace paths to make sure none are lifted, or damaged in any way on the board. Another issue might be faulty tonearm wires or not properly soldered wires.

FYI, monster cables are not good for this purpose. I would suggest the following cables:

Yes you need a pre amp

It would also be the same if you connected it to a computer to record an LP to CD. Mine is a little different and has one already built in that I can switch in and out of line.

Try spend a little more if you can as many pre amps can introduce noise.

You may also want to check that the turntable is properly grounded to prevent noise too

Left channel not producing any sound, right side works perfectly


Disconnect the wires to the cartridge. With the amp on. Touch each wire (one at a time) with your finger. Two of the wires should buzz (1 left, 1 right) if the left doesn't buzz either the connections are faulty or the pre-amp in your amp is.
If you get a buzz on the left, replace the cartridge.

I've been given a Technics sl-bd22d turntable, an Arcam amplifier and a Cambridge 551P pre amplifier. How do I connect them all together?


Depends what type of sockets these have. If the Pre-Amp has a RCA phono sockets you just need some RCA leads. I don't know if the Arcam Amp works with any pre-amp. But if it does, it's likely to have the same type sockets as the others. So you just buy another two RCA leads and connect it up.

Cannot hook up sound to surround sound , everything else works, cd player, radio, tapedeck. just the turntable does not work. any suggestions? deb


Hi, you need to connect the turntable to your amp via a phono input connection. If no phono input available then a pre amp needs to be used between turntable and amp to up the signal. Cheers John. Styluscity@gmail.com

I wired my technics 1210 turntable up to my usual audio set up and although it shows itself to be working, there's no sound coming from the speakers. Can anyone shed light on this?


First put your finger on the audio imputs for the deck in your amp. They should buzz with the amp switched on. If you can't get them to buzz, then the magnetic cartridge pre-amp in your amp has failed. If they do buzz. Take the wires to the cartridge off (make a note of where each one fits). Then with the amp powered up and deck plugged into it. Touch each wire one at a time with your finger. You should hear a buzz on two wires (one on the left one on the right) and nothing (much anyway) on the other two. If you don't hear any buzz there's something wrong with the connection cables to the amp. If you do hear the buzz, then the cartridge is dead.

No sound out of one of my turntables SL1210 Technics


The thing to remember with turntables is that if you touch the audio imput of where the deck connects and it doesn't buzz then there's something up with the amp. If it does buzz, then remove the leads to the cartridge and touch them one at a time with your finger. One should buzz in one channel and the other in the other channel. The two other wires are earths and generally don't buzz.
If you get the two channels to buzz the cartridge is faulty. If they don't then inside the deck is a fault (perhaps an internal pre-amp has failed).

Hi there. although my mk2 plays normally,sudenly i cannot hear it. i`ve checked wires and cartridge, what else it could be?


You need to check that the signal is getting to the amp. This can be done by removing the wires off the cartridge for the left and right channels. With the amp on touch the ends of the wires. If you hear a buzz the signal is getting to the amp and the cartridge is dead, but if you hear nothing and if the wiring is as you say good. Then the pre-amp in your amp for the cartridge has failed. This pre-amp will only affect the record deck and no other functions. If it has gone you can trace the wires from the sockets to it. Sometimes it will be on a seperate PC board. It's often a single IC that has failed. If you can replace it yourself be careful with the new one as these are often static sensitive chips.
PS the phono scokets on the amp sometimes buzz if you pull the plugs in & out!

Hi there! i just bought a numark tt1650 and an ortofon arkiv cartridge, connected it properly to my old technics a700mk2 amplifier (phono, grounding and all that) but it still has a buzzing problem...


Try connecting the turntable to one of the other inputs like CD / tuner etc and see if the buzzing disappears. if so then your turntable has a built-in pre-amp so it can be connected to any input except 'phono' as this would obviously be used for turntables without a pre-amp.
a lot of modern turntables now have built-in pre-amps to compensate for certain amps and receivers made without a phono input and can now be connected just like a CD player, tuner etc.

hope this helps.

1210 mk5 poor sound


If the cartridge is good and your wiring is good. Then it's either got to be a fault on your amp, or there is a pre-amp in the deck itself faulty. Double check that the amp is working, amps have a pre-amp for record decks, they cause trouble a lot.
If you touch the wires that connect to the cartridge, you should get a buzz on either channel (remove them from the cartridge first). If you don't get a decent buzz, and you know that the amp is working fine, then there's something inside the deck causing the problem. In which case take the bottom off and take a look inside.
