As long as the only thing damaged is the power cord, this should be easy. You said that you needed to know how to tell which side is positive and which is negative? The power cord carries alternating current not direct current. So in this case, polarity really isn't important. The same applies to the two yellow wires supplying the main motor board. They are A/C too. As long as the replacement cord you use is of equal or higher power handeling, and you make sure your connections are solid, it will work fine regardless of polarity. Just be sure the only problem is the cord. Check this link to be sure. Good luck, EW.

It's an ac cord. there is no positive and negative. the solid black side is "hot" and the ribbed or striped side is "neutral".

SOURCE: Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable i need to replace the on off switch on a mk2 technics 1200 any

The part is located HERE - but you will have to take apart your turntable from the bottom in order to replace it. It's not very hard, but if your not mechanically inclined, I would not suggest doing it, as you could cause more damage.

SOURCE: My technics 1200 hums when connected to the amp

Is the ground wire from the deck connected to the mixer?.

If everything is connected ok then the ground wire or phono cord could be faulty - look here for replacements :-

Could also be a "ground loop" - try a ground loop isolator.

Try plugging it into a different power point. The problem is with the power supply fluctuating. You can eliminate that with a UPS, here is a link to wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uninterruptible_power_supply

No! I meant trying another wall outlet. If you do not have a meter to check the power then try another plug. The motor will usually have some hum or noise if there is power to the motor. Steve

Technics 1200 turntable - no power Musical Fidelity AMP - no power


Technics 1200 - if the mains cord connectors and fuses are ok - it could be the power switch - when you rotate the switch do any lights come on? If it is just no rotation of the turntable platter then it could be the motor controller IC.

There is an internal regulator - often the associated zener and transistor fail.

Please rate this as a genuine cure - I know these inside out and with a bit more information I can give you a solution.

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.
