Question about Technics SL-1200MK5 Turntable
The lights flicker as the platter starts to spin.
Posted by Anonymous on
May i ask which lights you mean, also the pitch? And does after that everything works fine?... then i don't see a problem to be honest. But i'll check my mk5(refurbished really everything only i'm busy with the tone arm wire rewiring, so i can't move it.But now is the time to replace your capacitors for better then standard ones, if you see how old they are and replacing the potentiometres and main wires etc. almost 15 years old. The so calles refurbushing by the often one person stores is a waste of monet, just do it yourself.
Greetings richard and i'll come back on the subject, when the table is ready.

SOURCE: platter will not spin....
Um, why did you clean off the magnet with rubbing alcohol? Is this other DJ a service technician? Please be cautious when taking advice from friends or colleagues. Consult a professional, otherwise, you might cause more damage to your unit. Now, on to the problem at hand... This is a common problem with the MK2's, and not a power issue. This is a drive issue, and you will need to get it professionally serviced by an authorized Pansonic/Technics service center. There are various components which control the drive of the MK2's, so it's not easy to determine which is the culprit. 95% of the time it's one of the IC's (integrated circuits) or a few, or all. Which is why you will need to take to a service tech to get it looked at... Now, I know that's easier said then done, as many service centers do not provide support for turntables, especially the 1200s. So make sure you ask if they are knowledgeable with the Technics SL1200MK2 series. A lot of times, many of these places will be factory authorized to repair Technics/Panasonic items, but none have ever seen a Technics SL1200MK2 turntable, or worked on a direct drive unit. Many work on CD Players, Cassette Decks, etc. Our company offers free return shipping for all Nationwide service, and if your in NYC, we offer free pick up. Oh, and we are masters with the 1200s. Unfortunately, I don't think we can post our company information here, as I do not want to violate any agreements. So, with that said, do a search using the REPAIR SERVICE search option in FIXYA.com and go to the following section-> HOME AUDIO -> Audio Shelf Systems - we are listed.

SOURCE: 1200 platter drag
the platter should have two holes on it,my 1210 does. put your thumb on the spindle and a finger in each hole and prize the platter off. theres no screws holding the platter on just a tapered spindle shaft. it is quite heavy so a good pull will do it. as for the scraping it might be as simple as packaging placed under the platter to secure it for shipping, technics are built really well so i cant imagine it could be anything major. i hope this helps you out, if you need any more help let us know. please also let us know how you get on. darren

did you ever open the turntable. It sounds like the on/off switch is bad. Remove the platter and screws with a phillips screw driver and just make sure the connections are in place. make sure you disconnect the power first. let me know what happens afterwards.

The chances are the rubber drive belt has either broken or stretched so that it has fallen off the drive pulleys.
You will need to gain access to the underside of the turntable to replace it.
With most turntables the process will be to secure the tone arm (a rubber band will do the trick) before turning the whole thing upside down and unscrewing the base.
Replacement drive belts are easily available on the internet. Search by make and model number of your turntable
