Re: Fuse

The fuse is located on the rear of the unit. Remove it and take it to an electronics shop for replacement. If it does not work, then you've fried the transformer and will need to have it replaced by a qualified technician.

No power when plugged in ? Is there a fuse ?

The best way to find out is remove the base of the deck. You should see the power supply then. If the deck is main's powered the transformer will be seen. Some have fuses built into them, so it needs checking. Some decks use a mechanical switch to turn on the motor. That can break or stop engaging. But this will only apply if the deck doesn't have a power light indication. A deck with an on off switch for the power can also suffer a broken switch.

Wont start as there is no power to the deck

A faulty on off switch can sometimes cause the power to fail. Some decks have micro switches that get bent out of place.

No lights or responce (power issue)

If you do not see fuses on the smaller pc board, next to the main PC board, underneath the turntable platter, then you don't have any. Not all 1200s series turntables have these fuses. So, that means you more than likely blew the Technics power supply / transformer.

Not an easy fix, and I don't recommend you do this, as seeing how you did not replace the pop-up light correctly, it seems you lack the experience. When you saw that spark, that means that you did not shield the pop-up light wires properly, a big mistake. It more than likely touched the cabinet, and created a short - very common. This short is enough to take out he power supply.

You will have to take your unit to an authorized repair center for repair.

Good Luck!

I pluged my american stanton T60X (125V) to 225V. Any solution?

if you can find a fuse or reset switch, replace/reset that first. look around where the power cable enters the device.

if it has no fuse, you've probably cooked the transformer which converts outlet voltage (mains) to whatever the voltage the device is designed to run on. if that's the case, then you'll just need to swap in a transformer that matches the requirements of the deck to the output voltage of whatever country you want to use it in.

if this sounds too daunting and you're not confident with taking electrical stuff apart, go to a shop and get them to sort it for you.

long and short, don't ditch your deck just yet, Chet.

No power to the decks

Hi, this is much more than the fuse. im sensing a board issue with a capacitor. there may be a cold solder also that has lost its hold as well. check the board for any lose or cracks. and discoloring.

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

Power failure

Hi Darren,

Out of curiosity, how did you find out it was this part at fault?

My deck has just had the same thing happen to it :(. Unfortunately turntables are not popular in Cyprus, so it looks like I have to diy it.

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!
