All parts are discontinued for this model. The SL1200MK2 dust cover will not fit this turntable. You can actually have a dust cover made rather simply and cheaply (depending on where you live). Just take the dimensions to a PLEXIGLASS or even a GLASS shop. You can even purchase the Plexiglass yourself, cut it, and glue it together. I would suggest getting it professionally done. You can use any high impact plexiglass. Get something that is resistant to scratches and discoloring.

Yes they can be replaced.

Contact the store you purchased it from or ask where they have repairs done. They should be able to order the parts for you.

Is the dust cover on the Technics SL-B101 , the same as the Technics Sl- D303?


It took me about an hour to find this info for you. Problem is that you'd be taking someone's word for it. The answer came from a turntable forum where another person asked what other dust covers fit the pictured turntable (model SL-B303) Several people responded and if you click on this link: , look at the bottom right hand corner of every response on that page.(they are numbered) and you'll see that #1 has the question about the cover for the SL-B303. Scroll down to response #6.
This person says that the SL-B101 and the SL-D303 use the same cover.
Where did he get his info from? It's a risk but if you find another person that says the same thing, chances are it's the right answer. Wish TECHNICS had some sort of official release so that everyone could see what covers fit which turntables.

Good luck

Which ports do I use to connect a Thorens TD166 turntable to a VSX D511 reciever, and does it require a pre - amp

Turntable plugs into an RIAA pre amp, (if not fitted within the turntable) then to a line level input on your amplifier.

How to remove Platter on JVC L-A120 Turntable

Hi Jeff...
The platter on the JVC LA-10 does not come off as most turntable platters do. It is attached to the spindle with a Philips head screw.

Here are the steps:
Remove dust cover from turntable. Unscrew hinges and lift.

  • Secure tonearm to prevent stylus damage.

  • Turn the turntable on its side and remove screws that hold the top to its base. Remove platter by unscrewing the bottom plate from the turntable. The spindle bearing is held in place with a Philips head screw. Loosen it and the platter will separate easily from the spindle.

  • Loop replacement band around the pulley cylinder in the motor. Replace platter and bottom plate. Tighten spindle screw. Test the new belt by turning the platter clockwise two or three rotations. Belt should fit snugly and turn with little resistance.

    Does anyone know where I can but a hinge replacement hinge that holds dustcover on a Vestax bdt 2600 turntable?

    Vestax went out of business in 2014. I have found a website called Virtual Sounds Technology. They are the largest suppliers of their parts going. They say "if we don't have it, it either no longer exists or can only be pulled from a used unit".
    So your best option is to ask them!

    Dustcover will not stay up. how to adjust? where to find service manual?

    You will probably need a set of Allen Keys. One should fit in the bracket which will tighten up the hinge.
