Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
My problem is that i cant get the little dot to stand still at -3.3,the dot is at -2 on both table's,+3.3 & +6 it's ok,i had this problem since i bought them (second hand),,i did have new pitch's put in but the problem persists,ive tried adjusting the blue pod under the platter and i also drilled a hole underneath the deck to have easy access to the pitch control screw,tried adjusting them both,all combinations,even with the platter spining,but i just cant get it right,,,what i need to know is what exactly does the blue pod,and the screw on the pitch control do ?
You lack the proper tools to calibrate the pitch. Here are is a tutorial on calibrating your unit: http://www.djproaudio.com/cgi-bin/Help/kb.cgi?do=read&id=18&lang=en Also, that decal on the turntable that measures speed, is not an exact science. It's just an indicator to give you an estimate of the speed your turntable is rotating. It's not to be used as an exact measurement. Over time, pitch controls tend to drift from their original settings. Calibrating it back to factory specs might fix the problem, however, there are various other factors which control the drive of these turntables. So, if this does not work, the problem lies somewhere else - usually within 1 of the 3 IC's.
