Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable

Technics 1200 MK2 displaying irregular speed to include dragging and slowing

Where can I send my technic 1200 MK2 turntable for repair.  The turntable speed is irregular. It spins good for a while and drags for a few seconds then does well again.

 

5-6 years ago I got the dust blown out of it but that didn't seem to fix the problem.

 

Please notify me of some good repair shops in New England: NY, CT, MA.

 

Or let me know if I can fix it myself.

 

Thanks

My turntable won't play at 33rpms. tried the pitch adjustment with no success. my turntable is a Technics model#SL-35


First, I'm not a Technics tech.
* Normally I would suggest to check for warranty, but this unit is outdated.
* Try to contact ; https://www.technics.com/us/support/
*** The following is for information only.***
* The following vid shows the speed switch on the left. If it's not tracking then there may be a problem in the selector switch, sync tracking, or motor drive.
* You may want to check the "window" or sensor of the the speed sync light (the orange light). Wipe down the lamp and the peep hole where the sensor is located (on or near the lamp)
* Wipe down the outer edge of the turn table to clean the metal "dots" or "bars" on the rim. This is what the sensor reads to determine speed.
* Speed controls and direct drive turntable are not customer serviced parts (other than replacement of the component).

SL-1200 Turntable: My brand new Technics 1200 MK2 sounds wobbly when ...


Try plugging it into a different power point. The problem is with the power supply fluctuating. You can eliminate that with a UPS, here is a link to wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uninterruptible_power_supply

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.

Help for technics 1200 MK2 and 1210 Speed is too fast


On the 1200MK2 the pitch control slider is for just that purpose. Disregard the 0 setting and use the illuminated strobe marks on the platter to adjust to nominal speed. When they appear to be motionless you are there. The control on the 1210 may be a knob but the same principles apply.

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.
