Pitch slider can cause an unstable motor (clean with can of air and switch cleaner) if it spins counter clockwise it will be the brake. there is a little screw in a hole under the platter to ajust the brake speed.

Replaced Technics 1200 bulbs w/ blue leds...all work except strobe and turntable not turning when start button depressed, something is smoking...i immediately unplugged...help please?


Sorry to say but it sounds like one of two things. Either A. You somehow may have exposed some nearby wire that allowed for it to touch up against a metallic part of your mixer causing an electrical fire or almost fire. B. The particular capacitor that regulates the amount of voltage to course throughtout your turntable was drawing way more than specified due to the upgraded blue LED's that they themselves may be spec'd much to high for the Technics.

1999 Dodge Ram truck. last night i put $50. in gas... started the truck and the gas gauge hit "empty". the electronic mileage counter gradually dropped til i made it home. could this be a shot...


Sounds like you have lost power to the sender, or just a bad sender, which is located in the tank unfortunately. Try to find the the wires going to the gas tank and test them for power with a stab light.

My daughter's Kitchenaid Artisan 325 watt mixer had a malfunction last night. The unit itself is less than 3 years old. It had been running on high for approximately 5 minutes when sparks began to fly...


Sorry cant solve this but mine did the same. Mine is almost 4 years old now. Have you found out what the problem was with yours? Have you sent it back? Nicky.

Beater hitting bowl. Very wobbly, won't stand still when


More likely the pedestal base is bent. Your local service agent has probably seen it before and should be able to bend it back flat again. It's a brutal process with a heavy soft hammer that you probably won't want to see.

Garmin Nuvi 1200 does not have a qwerty keyboard, I would like to know where i could download one for the system


I have a Nuvi 1100 and I added the qwerty keyboard editing the british english keyboard file(en_GB.kbd). Open it with wordpad and change the "true" with a "false" like this: <group name="QWERTY" priority="1" wide_screen_only="false">
Then, go to tools, settings, language and change it to british english and you are done!

More than likely your RCA cables are going bad, and will need to be replaced. Not the hardest self-repair, but you will need to have some soldering skills. In addition, caution should be taken when taking apart your turntable.

Check out the following videos for self-repair assistance on these wonderful DJ turntables.

If you think it's too much for you to do yourself, get some professional assistance. Shouldn't cost too much for repair.

Hope this helps some.

How old is my Technics SL 1210 Mk2


Here's some information for you. Since your unit is a SL1210MK2, it may be harder to determine the age of the unit:

It is possible to tell the year (and the month) when the SL-1200 was manufactured from the serial number on the back or bottom of the turntable. SL-1200 serial numbers are in two different formats, depending on the date of manufacture. It isn't exactly possible to determine the decade in which the SL-1200 in question was manufactured, as the serial number contains only the last digit of the year. If the year digit is 8, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1978, 1988 or 1998. If the year digit is 0, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1980, 1990 or 2000. One rule of thumb is that old-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1970s and 1980s, while new-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1990s and beyond.
Old-format serial number: NHOJF20765 (SL-1200 manufactured 1982)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured. These serial numbers contain no indication of the month of manufacture. It should be noted that serial numbers in this format contain no letters following digits.
New-format serial number: GE4FB001154 (SL-1200 manufactured June 2004)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured, while the month of manufacture is indicated by the letter following it. Months are coded as letters between A and L inclusive; A indicates January, B indicates February, and so on.
In addition to the above, all the SL-1200MK2s from the 70's and early 80's have a 4 inch diameter plate where the RCA and ground wires enter the chassis in the rubber base of the unit. The later models have a smaller hole through which the wires enter the unit.
