Hi, i doubt the 2 are related as the T 1200 doesnt have a preamp, only speed control.

Maybe try checking to if there are any loose ground wires in the turntable (ONLY if you are comfortable to open)

Other than that it the sound issue might be either on the head, or on the phono outs not connecting properly.

If the speed is remaining good, then the issue is just with the LEDS themselves, maybe loose solder, if it is changng pitch as well, then dry joints in the power supply/pitch control

Hope that helps

Target light won't turn off


Your wires are crossed. You'll have to switch them out. Make sure when you put the wires back together, that they are covered properly with either electrical tape, or heat shrink tube. If any part of the wire is exposed and it touches the cabinet, it will ground/short out your turntable, and you'll have an even bigger and more expensive issue to fix.

Technics SL 1600Mk2 turntable works, but turns off seconds later


The SL1600MK2 is a direct drive turntable. Meaning that there are multiple electronic components which make it turn. With that said, the only place you can start is the main circuit board. Unfortunately, this will not be an easy diagnosis without the proper testing tools - multimeter, and a scope to get you started.

Otherwise, you'll have to take it to a service technican for repair.

Unfortunately, all parts for this model are discontinued, so if it's something that is specific to this unit, it will be very hard to source parts.

Technics 1200 turntable - no power Musical Fidelity AMP - no power


Technics 1200 - if the mains cord connectors and fuses are ok - it could be the power switch - when you rotate the switch do any lights come on? If it is just no rotation of the turntable platter then it could be the motor controller IC.

There is an internal regulator - often the associated zener and transistor fail.

Please rate this as a genuine cure - I know these inside out and with a bit more information I can give you a solution.

Turntable Issues


Check to make sure that your voltage setting is set correctly. Look under the turntable platter. You'll see a voltage selector. Make sure it's properly set for your area (115V or 220V).

If this does not solve the problem, or you have a turntable that does not have the voltage setting feature, then you might have a faulty turntable drive issue or an issue with the power, which means something is wrong on the main board (located underneath the turntable platter).

Sounds like a short on the pcb, one of the IC's could have gone bad, or the 33/45 have shorted out. Unless you have the proper tools i can only direct you to who you could send it to or order the part(s) from. If youre good at soldering and can work in square inch spaces, go for..
