Re: Help!!!!!!!!!

Your transformer's need to be replaced. This is the big grey metal looking box near the fuses. The fuses do not offer much protection, and the only thing generally affected is the Power Transformer. If you'd like to attempt a repair yourself, here is the part:

Make sure you choose the correct transformer for your model. If you feel you do not have the experience or do not feel comfortable in performing this repair, take it to an authorized service center. We provide Nationwide service, if you cannot find anyone locally:

Most turntables are belt driven. Suggest you take a look inside but remember to unplug the deck first. Usually it's a simple case of slipping the belt back on.

I have a crosley record player but there is a high pitch tone if I get a better needle will that help with the sound? The tuner adjustment button and volume really doesn't help the super high pitc

Not at all in this case. You either have a loose wire to connections to the cartridge, which can be fixed by hand. Just push the wires on to the cartridge. Or you have a fault in the power supply of the deck. Most likely a mains filter capacitor that is letting the 50hz mains hum in.

The hum will either be caused by a poor earth connection or a power supply problem. The stylus would not cause any hum at all.

My 1210 mk3's keep's popping the internal fuse?

Sounds to me like the capacitor across the motor needs replacing. On the + and - on a motor is a capacitor. This might be the problem, replace it as it should not be too expensive, you can never tell. Some times they are a few pence other time they are a few pounds. Why I don't know. If it's a common one, a few pence if it's a rare one, pounds....... I hope this helps.

Spilled drink on cdj800

Usually the platter is held on by a simple cir clip around the record spindle , sometimes covered with a small plastic disc on the top .
but I suggest that first you check the actual motor below the deck chances are this is a direct drive system ( no rubber wheel on the fulcrum motor being driven by a primitive spindle ) as the older type are so unreliable now days and newer decks are mostly direct .
with the power unplugged remove the deck from the case a series of screws at the base gently pries apart and check for spillage , you will need to get as much sugar substance or beer off the deck as you can a small paint brush with methylated spirits is good as it evaporates and cleans well , good to use cleaning the motor also particularly around the bearings .. with careful inspection and methodical observance you shouldn't have too much of a problem , also if this has a preamp fitted check for spillage on that also .. then afterward a small hairdryer will clear the rest .... good luck Regards Vortash

Deck speed up to uncredible speed and wont stop

You both have issues with your drive circuits. There is no easy fix for this. You will have to take it to a repair center to have them serviced.

There are 4 main Integrated Circuits that control the speed/drive and any one or all may have gone bad. We are seeing this alot with these units now.

Wish I could be of more help.

Technics 30th Aniv Edition - help with break speed.

Do you recall the adjustment you made? That brake switch under the hod is real sensitive. For starters, try pulling back half way from which you adjusted, to get a sense of sensitivity. Did you alter the pitch switch at all?

Keep me posted.
