Your best bet is to get a good quality switch contact cleaner to clean all the contacts on the speed control switches.
I guess the contacts inside the switches will have corroded slightly with your turntable having been stored in the garage.

Since the SLQ-200 doesn't have speed potentiometers like most turntables, there likely won't be anyplace you can clean. It uses a quartz signal, much like a wristwatch, to determine the speed for the motor. I've read there are quartz sensor controls that go bad, much like can happen in a quartz watch, that need replacing, but I haven't yet found anywhere that would show where they are or what they look like to replace them.

I have the same problem with my Technics SL-Q200 turntable. I have the spray, but where do I spray it to correct the problem. Do I spray the whole mechanism of the speed selector switch or just the switch itself. Please inform. Thanks.

How do I get the Autocue function to work on the Technics SL-D202 direct drive turntable?


Hi,
When you say that the auto cue does not function properly,do you mean that the arm will not lift from the rest onto the record or do you mean that the set down point of the arm on the record is not correct? Or does it not work at all?

I have a Technics Quartz SL-10 Direct Drive Automatic turntable and I need a pre-amp to drive it through a JVC RX-6012VSL Audio Control System.....preferably a Technics pre-amp.

There are, of course, many non-Technics PHONO preamps out there.

If you already have the central receiver and amplification part nailed down you really only need a Phono Preamp to boost and shape the output of the Phono Cartridge. Otherwise you're paying for source switching, volume and tones controls you don't need.

The cartridge arm does not go back to the off position.


it's a "manual" turntable so this is normal. You would need to buy an "automatic" turntable to have the arm return back when done.

Technics 1210 MK2 - unstable/uneven speed problem


Since this is a direct-drive turntable, it isn't a slipping or stretched belt. You will need a technician with a couple pieces of equipment and some experience/training to find the source of the problem. I suspect the part(s) will be the minor cost of the repair.

High pitched singing


It could be the wrong drive belt if the turntable is of the old fashioned type and does'nt have the direct drive. If the 33/45 switch isn't working properly then its a possibility its the drive belt tension on the turntable.

EVERYTIME I PLAY A RECORD IT DRAGS TO PICK UP SPEED


Are you sure you have a Technics SL1200MK2 Direct Drive Turntable? If so, then there is a major problem with the drive system. This can only be diagnosed and repaired by a qualified technician.

If your turntable is not the Techics SL1200MK2, and you have no idea what turntable you have, look at the model's label, if it says BELT DRIVE - this is the reason why it drags to pick up speed. If it says DIRECT DRIVE, then take it to a service center for repair.
