No power to my 1210 MK2s


Open the turntable. It sounds like the on/off switch is bad. Remove the platter and screws with a phillips screw driver and just make sure the connections are in place. make sure you disconnect the power first.

My 1210 was working fine the other day, my daughter was playing around with it turning it on and off but nothing too harsh. I went to turn it on today and there is no power what so ever. How do I change...

Your turntable may be plugged in to a "switched" power outlet on your receiver/amplifier. If it is, your amplifier needs to be on for your turntable to get power.

Me technic 1210s wont *** on ive tryed change in the fuses wiv 1 from tv an still nothing any ideas?

It could have got an internal fuse, not the one in the plug. Also the power switch might have broken. There's only one way to find out! Take the bottom off and have a look.

What type/size of glass fuse has the coloured bands on

They are the standard type, it's just some fuse makers use coloured bands to indicate the type of rating, just like the colour codes on resistors. Your local Library should have a book which will give you the meaning of the colour codes for fuses.

Technic 1210 deck

Make sure your 2nd turntable is connected to the PHONO input of your DJ Mixer or Receiver. If you have it connected to LINE IN or AUX IN, the turntable will be very low, as this model requires a phono pre-amp to amplify it's signal.

If this is set up correctly, then you might want to check your cartridge. Can you swap the cartridges out to see if the problem remains on the same turntable, or if it switches to the other turntable. If it switches, then you know the problem is with the cartridges.

If that checks out ok, you might have an issue with the RCA cables or Tonearm or both. At this stage, I would suggest taking it to a service center for assistance.

Tone arm snapped off

Unfortunately, not an easy fix. You will need to replace the entire tonearm, and this should only be done by a qualified service center.

If you would like to try it yourself, check out this site - - their are DO It Yourself repair videos for this model.

NOTE: This is NOT an easy fix, and if you had to ask this type of question, I am going to assume you don't have much knowledge with electronic repair.
