Question about Technics SL-1200M3D Turntable

1 Answer

Where is the ground wire connected to on the Technics SL-BD27?

I just inherited a Technics SL-BD27 from my parent's basement and it's in great working condition. The only problem is that the ground wire was removed from it and I'm obviously getting much static. I tried rigging one into that small hole beside the RCA inputs on the back but the ground issue remains.

    Does the system have to be grounded? I notice a screw in the back of the amplifier that says "ground." I can screw in a wire, but where would the other end be connected to?

You will more than likely need to wire it up from the inside of the unit, unfortunately. Parts for this model are discontinued. You can also try an iPod cable. As the size is a 1/8" plug - same as an iPod cable, then just cut the other end, and ground to your receiver.

How do I find a Technics SL-BD22 grounding wire?


A grounding wire is just a piece of wire connected to an earth point on the deck, connecting to an earth point say on a radiator pipe. There's nothing special about this wire any old piece will do. You only need it if you get a hum noise when the turntable is connected to the amp.

Cannot connect ground wire on SL BD26


Usually, on Technics turntables, the ground wire is attached to a ground lug on the receiver.

I dont have the orginal ground wire for my Technics SL-BD20D turntable someone told me i could use rca cables to ground it, i have a pre amp cause my main amp didnt have phono jacks on the back of it.


Hello,
You don't need the original ground wire for Technics SL-BD20D turntable,
any plain cable can be used for this purpose...
you should connect turntable to your pre amp,should be a "phone" input at the back...
here are some suggestions for grounding....
---------
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    My technics 1200 hums when connected to the amp even when the power cord is disconnected.


    Is the ground wire from the deck connected to the mixer?.

    If everything is connected ok then the ground wire or phono cord could be faulty - look here for replacements :-

    Could also be a "ground loop" - try a ground loop isolator.

    Yes you need a pre amp

    It would also be the same if you connected it to a computer to record an LP to CD. Mine is a little different and has one already built in that I can switch in and out of line.

    Try spend a little more if you can as many pre amps can introduce noise.

    You may also want to check that the turntable is properly grounded to prevent noise too

    You have 4 wires coming from the needle pickup to the cables which connect to the amplifier/receiver. I would check the needle, the pickup unit, and the leads from the pickup to the cables. You can probably run a continuity test or ohm test for verification. If that checks, pickup and needle is your next step.
