Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
The issue could be 1 of 3 things...
1) Cartridge / Headshell
3) RCA cables
or a combination.
Hard to isolate the issue. Make sure the cartridge/headshell wires are connected properly. Does the his go away when you touch the tonearm? How about the RCA cables? If so, then that is usually the culprit. Did you buy this new or used? If new, I would suggest returning it, or excersizing the warranty.
If the tonearm is the issue, this is not something I would suggest you replace on your own, as it is rather complicated.
Here is a site to buy all the parts you need for your unit:
Just pick the model you need parts for. You can use any good quality RCA cables, but soldering is required in order to replace.
Hope this helps.
