Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
With a voltage meter, open the table back up to where the fuse is under the on off switch. With the table plugged check the voltage meter check the incoming ac prongs for 20V. Also, the 1210 has a voltage switch under the platter to the left
a little hole for which a flat head screwdriver is needed to switch the voltage. If you live in the UK or outside od the USA it should be on 220V, IF YOU LIVE IN THE USA, IT SHOULD BE ON 110V. If your electricity is 110/120 and its on 220, the transformer is most likely fried. If your electricity is 220V and its set to 110V , then its not getting enough current. Its possible the transformer could have gone bad, with no smell of burn or sign of damage. Also, check board with all the capacitors on it around the motor, check fopr any leakage...
If service Technics for 15 years and sometimes i'll se voltage issues I've never seen before.....
