Have u checked internal fuses,theres one that protects the transformer an one that protects the main board.if both decks have gone maybe a sudden surge of power could have caused them to go?i had a the same problem quite easy to check really m8.
remove platter unscrew the 5 plate screws an remove.then put a multimeter on the fuses,might be able to even see if there gone.
important u change them for the right fuses though, can be picked up from any electrical whole salers ie rs components.gd luck

Hi surprised that both stopped!!

Are they plugged into a transformer of any sort, if so, there could be a problem with that.

I have a 2008 MKZ and the driver power seat suddenly. Quit working. The main fuse is OK and the control switch checked out good..is there a secondary fuse. Or does th)e motor need replacing


When you toggle the switch to the different positions of seat movement do the motors receive power? Also if one or more of the motors (there are 3 I think) is defective they are not available separately, you must replace the entire power seat track assembly.

My 1210 turntable is slowing down/speeding up, so as the song sounds out of tune....what is the problem, and how do I fix it?


over time the motors go. you can replace it but its nearly impossible since they no longer make or manufacture technics due to controllers taking over the dj world.

No Power to turntable


Why not try replacing the whole power chord with new one instead of just changing the fuse ( but you will have to splice the two wire lines at the end of your turntable console if not to resolder it, and be sure to properly mask it with an electrical tape to avoid electrical hazard/shock to anyone... ;-)

No Power to 1210s


Problem is not the fuses, but the power supply / power transformer has blown. This is why you should always wrap exposed wiring with electrical tape or heatshrink tubing.

The power supply can be purchased HERE, but this is not an easy replacement. And if you blew it by not properly replacing the Pop-up light, than I DON'T suggest you try to replace the power supply on your own either. You could really cause even more damage, and possible harm to yourself and your property.

They wont turn on


Check the fuses. If the fuses are good, then it's the transformer that is shot. The fuses are located underneath the turntable platter. If your unit does not have any fuses, then the only problem could be with your transformer. You can PURCHASE A REPLACEMENT TRANSFORMER HERE.

Good Luck!

Technics 1210 Distorts


Well, if it's not your tonearm, then the issue is either your RCA cables (red/white), or your cartridge/stylus.

There is nothing else on this unit that would cause distortion in sound. Well, unless you have the unit sitting next to a very powerful electrical source. Try a different outlet as well, just to be on the safe side that it's not electrical interference.

How do i replace the phono leads on my technics 1210?


OK,

you have to turn it over, remove the rubber housing, remove the round metal guard from below...


ONLY DO THIS IF YOURE CONFIDENT IN SOLDERING SKILLS!!

You have to unsolder 4 leads ( stereo ) and solder on a new pair.

If you actually proceed, i can give you a better step by step.

But this process requires soldering..so.


Keep me posted.

No power


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.....
