Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
My Deck seems to be dead. When Turning on My deck there seems to be no responce. I have changed the plug, the fuse, the socket Im plugging the deck into and still no responce. Is there an internal fuse that can blow? If so is it easy to replace myself? while replacing the stylus lamp, I saw a little spark, and now have the same problem, nothing works. I have a U.S. model (M) from about 1995, and they don't seem to have any fuses in them, at least not in the places the other models have them. any suggestions?
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.
