Hi,

Offhand, the double springs are already installed inside the Audio Insulator (Foot).

Should they have been disassembled, it is sandwiched between the bottom part and the top with the threaded portion. Some versions are held in place by a circlip.

Mounting the Audio Insulator (Foot) is a matter of threading it to each corner of the unit. There would be appropriate embedded nuts to accept them on the bottom. The threads also serve as an adjustment to even/balance the CD/DJ player.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Go here for the full forum on DJ gear. Same stuff that another expert just blatantly copy and pasted, you will find much more at this address.

but as for putting the feet on, you can do it without flipping the turn table upside down. Just slide it to the edge of a shiny surfaced table, and carefully whilst the deck foot(one at a time) is still like 2/3 the way until you can get access to it, watch for pressure downwards from the spring! and get to each foot in turn . Saves inverting the deck, . unless you have a road case for it then it ain't so much a freak feast. What are your concerns about fitting the feet. Let me know and we can work it out together If you want I will find some photographs for you, Would that help?

If you look at the manual for your unit it only screws in with on screw , then screwing it in or out will adjust its level

    1.First of all, if you have never worked on electronics successfully, and have had NO electronics traing, then DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS!

    Tools you will need:
    Grounding strap (found at most nerdy computer parts stores...) keeps you grounded to the machine, and prevents unwanted static discharge
    Phillips head screwdrivers (I used a high power, high speed cordless drill w.interchangable screw bits..)
    Precision phillips screwdriver set
    solder
    soldering iron
    small wire strippers
    heat shrink (or..electrical tape...)
    Q-Tips.
    rubbing alcohol
    TINY set of needle nose pliers or forceps
    can of compressed air electronics cleaner/duster
    an old driver (raw speaker..) that you can use to locate any dropped screws (trust me on this one...)


    let's get started.

    Take the turntable, set it on a LARGE, Clean, sturdy syrface. I used my dining room table with TWO table cloths, as to not damage either the deck, or the table...

    Next, take the power, ground, and RCA cables, and drape them BEHIND the deck.

    THEN, IF SO EQUIPPED...
    Some Technics SL1200 mkII, mkIII & mk5 (especially if they are ONE owner...) have one of several types of Dustcover Hinge Sockets srewed into the BACK of the turntable housing. REMOVE THESE FIRST. My turntables had these removed by me many years ago, so I did not have them to photodocument this step.

    Remove the platter. this is done by removing the slipmat, or rubber mat, and placing your two index fingers into the two holes in the platter, and pulling STRAIGHT UP on it. DO NOT try to shake it loose! the weight of the turntable chasis should be enough to allow you to pull the platter fre of the motor assembly. Place the platter upside down on the table next to the Turntable.

    You will see a slotted plastic disc screwed to the aluminum chassis. remove the six screws holding it in place, and place the screws into the upside down platter (TRUST ME...) remove the slotted disc, and set aside.

    with the turntable facing you, stand it up on it's back (see photo 2) DISREGARD THE YELLOW CABLE, AS YOU DON'T HAVE ONE ON YOURS!



    2. While supporting the unit in the vertical position with one hand, unscrew the feet and place them into the platter. Next, take a #2 phillips screwdriver (or powerdriver..) and begin removing all of the screws holding the isolation boot (that big, black rubber thing on the bottom..) and place them into the platter, seperating them by size (trust me...) this will help you remeber what went where.
    3http://www.djforums.com/forums/images/tutorials/stylusilluminator_03.jpg[/IMG]


    remove the Isolation boot, and place it to the side. You may decisde to go ahead and CLEAN that bad boy. If you are like me, you have no doubt discovered how HORRIBLY nasty the inside of the deck is! BOTH of these decks have SURVIVED LARGE spills ON THEM! the liquid just runs around the electronics, and under the spaces left by the posts and isolators.. That stuff really needs to be cleaned out every once in a while.. if you are a bedromm DJ, and never gig yours to death like I do, then a light dusting may all you need to do...

    Now that you have cleaned your boot, you need to take a good look inside of the turntable. You will see a big circuit board up (see photo below) in the TOp right hand side of the circuit board, you will see the socket where the stylus illuminator plaug into



    By now, you have probably noticed the conition of the inside of your TT, mine are usually FILTHY by the time I have to open them for service (which is rarely, these had not had service in six years!) You may decide that this is an opportune moment to CLEAN the circuitry and the chassis inside. No, I won't tell you how now...

    You will see two screws holding down the right side of the circuit board to the chassis, REMOVE THESE, then CAREFULLY slide the stylus illuminator lead out of the socket.
    NOW, CAREFULLY lift the circuit board SLOWLY and pull the leads under the circuit board towards the stylus illuminator. THERE WILL BE A HOLE IN THE CASTING TO ALLOW THE LEADS TO COME THROUGH.
    Now, turn the turntable back onto it's back edge.
    Just to the right of the center top, you will see the stylus illuminator housing assembly

    You will observe two brass screws holding onto the chassis, remove these now.
    After you have removed these, carefully dislodge the assembly from the chassis, then CAREFULLY, pull the leads through the hole in the chassis.
    NEXT:
    you will observe the two black wires protruding from the RIGHT slot of the iulluminator housing. One will require to be cut from the switch assebly there on the housing, the other will likely be connected to the socket lead via a small solder joint covered by heat shrink. SLIDe the heat shrink back and REUSE IT! (I do..) and snip that connection. Then, snip the other black lamp lead from the switch wires, leaving enough to resplice the new one on...
    Place the socket lead into the platter (trust me..)
    NEXT: The fun part!
    With your precision phillips screwdriver, remove the TINY screw holding the reflector onto the spring loaded shaft of the assembly

    next, take a Q-Tip and clean the INSIDE of the reflector housing with rubbing alcohol, or windex

    Place the reflector in the platter

    Now, Slide the lamp out of the inner barrel(photo 9), do this carefully, and try not to break the leads, as the inner barrle and spring cannot be removed if the lead is still protruding OUT of the inner barrel!
    9

    Next: take the stop pin out of the inner barrel of the assembly using a msall phillips head screwdriver
    Remove the inner barrel from the outer barrel of the assembly

    This is another good time to CLEAN! WHEE!!! Use a Q-Tip and some good, evaporative solvent to do this (windex, alcohol, etc..)
    remove the spring, and clean it too.
    next, look into the outer barrel of the assembly(photo 12) yup, it's funky in there too, get after it!


    OK, Here's the hard part:
    take your newly cleaned inner barrel,slide your newly cleaned spring into it, and your newly acquired technics replacement Neon lamp (Panasonic part #SFDN122-01E) and insert the leads down the barrel. NEXT take a set of TINY pliers, or use your precision screwdriver to guide the tips of the leads so that they BARELY poke out of the hole in the side (photo 13-14) you may choose to insert the spring after you have inserted the leads, this is cool too...


    CAREFULLY slide the barrel and sring back into the outer barrel, being sure to NOT allow the leads to slide back into the inner barrel, or to allow the leads to slide out of the hole in the side of the barrel, asthe inner barrel CANNOT be inserted back into the outer barrel with the leads poking out too far!. Once the inner barrel and spring are back in the outer barrel, and the leads have been alligned with the RIGH side slot, use needle nose pliers to pull the leads all the way through, then seat the neon lamp firmly onto the inner barrel.

    next, reach into that platter, and pull ou the reflector, and tat tiny little screw that held it onto the inner barrel. replace the reflector onto the barrel now.

    OK, now, depress the light release spring, and line up the hole in the inner barrel with the slot on the LEFT side of the outer barrel. Then, reach into the platter and grab the newly cleaned stop pin, and replace it while depressing the spring.

    Now, splice the leads onto the same wirwes you removed your old lamp from, carefully insulating them with electrical tape, or heat shrink. Screw the assembly back into place, connect the leads back onto the circuit board socket, and re-assemble the turntable using all of those organised screws in the platter....



    this should fix your problem

There is a screw that goes thru the feet and attaches to the bottom of the turntable. Put the spring on the part of the feet that are closest to the bottom of the turntable, then just place the feet on the bottom of turntable and put in the screw. Do this while the turntable is turned upside-down.

    1. While the turntable is upside down locate the corners where the feet are supposed to go.

    2. Put a spring over one of those spots, centered over it with the smaller opening of the spring first (against the bottom).

    3. Put one of the feet on top of the spring with the bottom of the foot outwards so the other side of the foot is set into the springs bigger side.

    4. Then you take one of the long screws and put it thru the middle of the foot into the hole and into the bottom of the turntable where the hole is at for the screw to fasten into.

    5. Then you turn the screw with a phillips screwdriver turning it clockwise so that the screw tightens.

    6. Repeat this method for each of the four feet by putting one in each corner of the bottom of the turntable.

    Remember that the spring goes in between the foot and the bottom of the turntable, it works like a shock absorber. You need the screws to hold the feet onto the bottom of the turntable. If you are missing any of the parts, even the screws, you will need to get the right ones because they are made a specific length to hold the feet on with the right tension against the springs.

    I don't know if you will get any better instructions, if you can not tell where the feet go, I don't think you will be able to do this yourself. You should then just take it to a service center and they could do it for a small fee. They may even do it for free, I know the shop I work in would do it for free. It should only take a couple of minutes to finish this job.

Hi!

Click on this link http://www.eserviceinfo.com You may get the schematic for your CD player. However, for replacing the same you need to contact local tech shop or Bestbuy and get it done from them.

You will not be able to replace it on your own. You may have to change the entire unit.

Thanks

above video should help. if your platter is "stuck" then call them for tips. also make sure it does NOT say "direct drive" on the front of the unit.

Nope. There are no input connections on the DZ1200. However, you can use programs like Serato, CUE, TRAKTOR, or PCDJ, and you can keep your music on your computer/hard drive, and control with the DZ1200 via specially coded CDs.
