Switch off for a will and see.
if still bad. check the circuit board under.

with old electronic devices, capacitors are commly the ones that may go wrong/dry. which would cause oscillatory circuit to generate wrong signals or strobe or feebacks. if you know how to take out the circuit board, check it starting from capacitors.

There are 2 problems with the my deck: 1. The +-0 light for the pitch will not work but everything else about the pitch works fine. 2. The deck will not change from 33bpm to 45bpm, I have replaced the...


Hi, please do this test for me. With the deck running on 33 speed and the pitch control set to 0 use your finger on the platter centre and speed it up manually as much as you can. Doe's the quartz lock lamp come on? If not then open the deck up and loosen off the fixing screws on the circuit board that has the 33/45 buttons. Try to change speed with the board loosened off. If none of the above makes any difference replace the quartz lock neon. Use only original Technics neon. As a matter of interest have you done any mods to the deck? Cheers John,

Pitch problems


You would need to calibrate them to each other. Not very difficult, but not that easy either.

I would suggest taking it to a service center, and ask them to calibrate the turntables to each other. It's a matter of adjusting VR302, which is located underneath the turntable platter. You'll also need a frequency counter or similar - which aren't cheap.

Pitch problem out of nowhere!


HI Mattgood2

I believe this is a common problem more evident in decks that have a very hard life,
You pitch controls are probably due for replacements so I suggest you take then to the service agents to service them,
unless you know how to do the servicing

I grew up with Decks under my fingertips so I have seen this before and remember the only satisfing fix was a service and the pitch controls had to be replaced,

I thought I would have a go re-servicing myself and found far too many things to cover once the covers were off,

There are many things that need attention on the inside of these decks and the precise placement of each component is vital to the correct operation of this unit,peace of mind really

It takes a small amount of care to maintain these decks,
when they die or fail get a pro to fix the problem.
guess work only makes you look like an "Amatuer"

Please dont be offended (by my words) Ive done it too,LOL
I had a full dance floor and then nothing,the decks got replaced

What have you used to clean the pitch control sliders???

PITCH CONTROL PROBLEM


The reset button disables your pitch control and allows the turntable to rotate at TRUE "0" (zero). FYI, these turntables were NOT made for DJing. They were made for radio, studio, and high end home use. They became DJ turntables, because they were perfectly built for the trade. So, the pitch reset button is more of a function best suited for radio stations or a producer who needs to record or play at a true zero speed.

Now, on to your question...

More than likely you just have to calibrate your pitch control. There are various videos on YouTube on how to do this properly. Just do a search CALIBRATING 1200s or similar. FYI, all the Technics SL1200/1210 MK series are the same inside. MK2, MK3, MK5 - so don't worry if you only find videos on calibrating MK2's or MK5s - works the same on all the models.

Good luck!

Technics 1210 Mk 2 Pitch Fade Problems


You have to understand any sort of calibration meter will only tell you if the pitch control is faulty - or excessively too fast/too slow. If your units are just 'off' then that is a matter of a simple calibration of your pitch controls back to original factory specs. Also, just so you know, the pitch controls on the 1200s are not really calibrated when they leave the factory. They are basically installed, set a default setting, then shipped off. So, you'll often times have 2 turntables with sequential serial numbers, but they are both off.

Here is a tutorial on calibrating your unit back to original factory settings: TECHNICS SL1200MK2 / SL1210MK2 TURNTABLE PITCH CALIBRATION

You can also print this out and give it to the technician who serviced your units. Also ask him what kind of calibration meter, or unit did he use to test? Just curios.

Platter problem


THE PITCH slider or the variable resistor could have gone faulty. A new pitch is only $25 i think. They may need to salvage the pcb from your old one as technics no longer manufacters them. I've never seen the pitch led stay on lock when the actual pitch is not at zero. Hopefully the pitch did not short out the brake or the variable resistors on the motor's circuitboard.



keep me poted.
