Blown Fuse I forgot to change the voltage before I plugged it in. What type of fuse do I get? How do I change the fuse? Can I do it myself or should I take it to a shop? Thanks... Jo

Re: Blown Fuse

One of my turntables target light was pulsing, so STUPID me did what I read on someones comment that the voltage should be switched to 110 V instead of 220V. DON'T EVER TRY THIS !!! after that switch all i heard when powered was a BOOM. I thought that the whole tt was dead. Fortunately only one fuse was burned so I had it replaced and the turntable is fine now.
I was so close to ruin the transformer.

Cheers !

Re: Blown Fuse

The fuses for this model are located underneath the turntable platter. You can replace this yourself, however, please be sure to disconnect the unit from it's power source before proceeding. You will have to remove the metal turntable platter, exposing a black protective cover. Remove the cover, and you'll see the main PC Board. There are 2 fuses on the lower left side. Pull the fuses and take them to your local electronics store, or order online @ IF your unit does NOT have any fuses, then your transformer is damaged, and will need to be replaced by a qualified technician. Also, the fuses are only meant to circumvent small changes in electrical current. Many times, these voltage surges, will fry the fuses and the transformer. So if after you replace the fuses, it still doesn't power up, you will need to also have the transformer replaced. Good Luck!

Recently there was a thunderstorm in my area and now when I plug my turntable in no power is getting to it, I'm presuming the fuse has blown, is this in the turntable itself/can I change it or do I need to...

If you can get inside the turntable then you should look for a glass looking fuse or anything that says "ma" or "A" on it. The fuse itself will have what it type it is on it. Some circuit boards have the ratings on too! If you can't find one then replace the power supply adapter.

Plugged a 110v IonProfile into a 220v outlet. Is there a way to repair it myself by replacing a specific part on the turntable?

If you are lucky the fuse might have blown. If not then it will probably need a new power supply.

I have blown a fuse inside my turntable by flicking the voltage switch under the vinyl platform. How do i fix it?

Cant tell you exactly how to fix it, but I would be surprised if it was a fuse, if you are technically minded then strip the turntable and look for damaged components to replace, chance are that it is a diode that has blown.

Technics SL-1200MK5 voltage or fuse problem

To change it from the 110 to 220 the switch is under the turntable platter. Put your fingers in the 2 holes under the slip matts and pull up evenly. It may be a little hard but it will come off. As for the fuse...its inside the deck. Unscrew the feet and all the screws. the black rubber part will come off. Good luck!

I turned the hertz button from 50hz to 60hz on the back of the decks and there was a buzzing noise for about 10 seconds then just turned off.have i blown a fuse inside? or will i have to take them to...

There's really no way to tell long distance, but I recommend that you check inside and HOPE that there's a fuse that you can replace. Otherwise the turntable will require professional repair. For future safety, never change a voltage or frequency setting while an appliance is switched on or even just connected to power.

No Power to turntable

Why not try replacing the whole power chord with new one instead of just changing the fuse ( but you will have to splice the two wire lines at the end of your turntable console if not to resolder it, and be sure to properly mask it with an electrical tape to avoid electrical hazard/shock to anyone... ;-)

Internal fuse

The Solution:
1. Firstly unplug the decks!!!
2. Remove the slipmatts and platter
3. Unscrew the circular plastic cover (Note: 5 screws holding it down)
4. Upon removing this circular plastic cover you will see a clear piece of plastic covering a circuit board, open it up. Now you will see a two fuses one clear and one stripey. 5. Remove the fuses (Gently poke it out with a pen/screwdriver or whatever) and examine it and see if either or both have infact blown.
6. Bring the suspect fuse/s to any electric/hardware/music type store (or search the net) and try to get a replacment but make sure its the same as the fuse you removed!!!. A T250 mA fuse(clear) an a T1A Fuse (stripey) are stated in the Technics user manual.
7. Now get the new fuse and gently snap it back in to the silver holders.
8. Replace the clear plastic circuit board cover.
9. Screw back the the circular plastic cover (Note: 5 screws holding it down)
10. Replace the Platter and slipmats
11. Turn them on and spin awaysmile.gif

No lights or responce (power issue)

There are two internal fuses that you can check, their positions and values are determined by which country the unit was sold in. You can get a copy of the service manual on the link below: Make sure it's unplugged & the tonearm is secure before going inside!! I have indicated the position of the fuse in the attached picture. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
