Sl 1210 mk2 problem spin on 33 rpm

Ok it could be the following of which is a very detailed way to go about fixing it so here we go:
1. Make sure your deck is set to 33rpm & that the pitch fader is at the greenlight or dead center spot. Remove the platter & plastic under covering that bares 5 phillips head screws. ee6d0e64-5572-4814-bdd5-3c288a65f86d.jpg 981b4425-f1bb-44db-8009-96c4f6f7045a.jpg
2. This is what it looks like without the platter & plastic cover.
3. Next flip your turntable over onto a big fluffy pillow to protect your tonearm mainly.
4. Remove the feet & all the screws from the bottom rubber cover. After that simply pull up the rubber cover easy & it may be a little tight in there so just do it nice & easy until it has been separated and completely removed out of the way.
5. Now on the underside of your pitch fader you'll see the board & locate the hole thats in that board & use a phillips screwdriver to turn it to the left all the way until it stops. db1b13b1-7724-4ad3-b6fb-849e4b202cf0.jpg
6. Now flip it over and turn it on, make sure its set to 33rpm & the pitch fader is st to "0" or where the greenlight turns on.
7. Then move the pitch fader in the "+" or positive direction or slide it towards you slowly a couple of increments say until you get to the "+2" the Big Red Dot moves & then comes to a stop again like it was before you moved the pitch fader when you stop on "+2". When that happens leave the pitch fader there turn off the deck, remove the platter and then unplug the pitch fader from its internal connection. a6fb6645-36a8-4b1e-b91c-c72b15b430dc.jpg
8. After its unplugged flipp it bck over again& now you need to bust out your Multimeter & set it to the 20k mark. 87b1f47f-20ee-40f6-b803-9f7559643700.jpg
9. After that then take your 2 contact points and place them on these to solder joints on the pitch fader board to get your first reading. e11add40-cf29-46a9-8030-8ef186bb2662.jpg 6c759cec-641c-4d93-bf6d-5c3702914fd6.jpg
10. Again dont go by what reading I have in the picture but instead whatever reading your mutlimeter gives you & write that number down & now you have to get the 2nd reading.
11. First you must reach underneath & now you can slide the pitch fader back into the "0" position or in the middle again & then repeat the same process you did when you got the first reading by placing your contacts again back on the two solder points and take a 2nd reading.
12. Now while you hold the black/red contacts on the solder points, you take your screwdriver & place it back into that hole from earlier & slowly turn it to the right until you see the reading on the multimeter screen matching whatever the number was that you got on your 1st reading. When they match stop & flip over your turntable & make sure you re-connect that plug for your pitch fader.
13. Now go ahead and put the rubber bottom cover back on with all those screws but leave the top internal plastic cover off still, of course you can put the platter back on but leave that plastic part underneath it off. TO BE CONTINUED...

Technic 1200mk2 pitch problems

Check for bad solderings on Q201 and surrounding areas.
Resolder IC101 and IC201. If that doesn't help, Q2 and Q3, both 2SD637R, could be broken. If that doesn't fix it replace the electrolytic capacitors. Cheers john. Styluscity

My CDJ 1000 mk2 pitch control doesn't work and it doesn't regeister on the display, can you help??

The pitch faders do fail but usually they just become erratic rather than give up completely.
I think the most likley problem is a crack on the pitch circuit board or problems caused but liquid spilt into the pitch fader.

you have to replace the slide pot.they are made to be replaced.remove the pitch cover,unplug the cable with white wires and blue connector (it just slides in,or out),remove the ground wire (the single wire with white connector (it just slides off too).now unscrew the blue metal houseing form the pitch you have a fader+motherboard soldered will have to desolder the posts.once this is done discard the old slide pot.test fit the new slide pot gently into the motherboard.if fits correctly,and posts are lined up,solder into place.clean debris if necessary.let cool,reconnect,test pitch.good luck! i had to replace mine,and it was a bad slidepot.take my advice,order 2 slidepots,just in case the other goes out,because they are hard to get your hands on!

I've got to be honest...(in response to your question)

The need to be cleaned as much as you play them. If you play them on a daily basis, I would suggest cleaning the pitch faders at least once a month. Also, the studio environment is also a factor. Is it a dusty place, or relatively clean?

You can clean the faders out with an air can, and some Deoxit or other contact cleaner. DO NOT USE RUBBING ALCOHOL.

There are 2 was to clean, blow the air can inside the fader, removing any debris, then spraying your contact cleaner, then spray air again.

Or, you can take the turntable apart, take the pitch control apart, and clean the contact fader inside. Desoldering is required for this. But it's a more thorough cleaning.

Helpful tips can be found here:

Or, you can just buy a new fader, and install <-- easiest method!

Pioneer cdj pitch control

You have to properly calibrate your unit after any repairs. If you purchase the Service Manual for this unit, it will instruct you on how to accomplish this.

Pitch/Tempo control/fader problem

You can buy a contact cleaner spray and spray inside the fader while moving the fader from -10 to +10. If the problem is dust or dirt this will fix it. If the problem presists, then go ahead and get a fader replacement.It's easy to replace ;-) Regards. DiMiS Greece.
