Make sure your 2nd turntable is connected to the PHONO input of your DJ Mixer or Receiver. If you have it connected to LINE IN or AUX IN, the turntable will be very low, as this model requires a phono pre-amp to amplify it's signal.

If this is set up correctly, then you might want to check your cartridge. Can you swap the cartridges out to see if the problem remains on the same turntable, or if it switches to the other turntable. If it switches, then you know the problem is with the cartridges.

If that checks out ok, you might have an issue with the RCA cables or Tonearm or both. At this stage, I would suggest taking it to a service center for assistance.

I'd say the cartridge is getting tired. Swap the head shells with carts and test. Cheers john. Styluscity

You could be getting acoustic feedback from the speakers to the TT's. Lower the volume or somehow isolate them from room sounds and vibrations.

Technics 1210's playing out of one speaker / channel


Have you considered the amp to be the problem? The amp has a magnetic cartridge pre-amp, which only the turntables would use, that can fail. It's often a single IC that has gone.

I have technics 1210 mk3d turntable, problem is its sending out a louder sound signal through the right speake than the left .... please help !


Two causes a bad cartridge, or something wrong with the pre-amp for turntables in your amp. Reversing the leads into the amp should make the poor channel go to the other side. If it doesn't it's the pre-amp. If it is the pre-amp, they are not to diffcult to fix. Most are just an IC with a few components around it.

Deck fades out when i bring the second deck in (records I mean)


are you running phono pre amps ? are you running pre amps to each deck or one for both decks , if you are running pre amps maybe the power supply is not sufficient to run two decks anymore [ possibly damaged ] but it sounds like a power delivery failure to me . hope this helps
