Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
I bought two new 1210 mk5g turntable in March. Somehow on one turntable, one of the 4 pins inside the tonearm that connects to the cartridge is stuck in, the others seem to spring in and out but the one connector is stuck all the way inward. Is their an easy fix or will I need to send it in?
They also do seem to play at a lower volume than my MK3's did.
Hey raz, i've just taken apart and put back together my turn table trying to cure the same problem. I DIDN'T NEED TO!!!!
number 1) i think the tone arm is a sealed unit so far as i can gather so if the spring is broken you need a new tone arm. however. Get a cotton swab, soak in malt vinegar and use this to gently push the faulty contact in. The idea behind this is to get vinegar around the contact shaft. This should dislodge the dirt and release the contact.

The inner connection spring is not making contact, so you're not getting full fidelity on both channels. Go here, these guys rule! Sounds like you'll need to replace the tonearm. And stay away from needle lickers.
