Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
I've seen repairs for the Technics SL1200MK2 turn table, but nothing on the 1610.
Anyway, I've got a 1610 that looks very much like the 1210 and I've had it for quite awhile. I have not used it in a long time, but I went to play an album and the turntable would not turn. The power is on (lights are on) but I can't get it to rotate.
Could it be anything other than the motor itself? How hard would that be to replace?
Unfortunately, it does sound like a drive issue. Just so you know, these units are direct drive, so there is no physical motor. It's just a bunch of various circuits which drive the unit, and if any one of them go bad, it will affect your turntable speed. You will need to have this looked at by a service technician to determine which circuit is faulty.

OK. Whoever stated that the Technics SL-1610MK2 is direct drive, probably did not notice the "belt" being sold for only $14.90 online. If this belt is being sold, there is a strong possiblility that this turntable is belt driven, so maybe the belt just slipped off or busted. order a belt and replace. Good Luck.
