The fader for the M5G's are the same as for the MK5's. As for cleaning, you will have to do it like you did with the MK2, and go from underneath.

How to calibrate control on a technic 1200 by sight


Put the pitch slider to +6 and adjust the internal preset until the top set of dots on the platter are stationary.
Check again with the pitch at +3.3 if the dots are stationary then job done!, if not then the pitch slider is worn and perfect calibration won't be possible until the pitch slider is replaced.

Gemini CDJ02 - Pitch Control Slider Stuck @ 0% The Pitch Control Slider will pitch down all the way but sometimes it will randomly change pitch and most the time wont pitch-up past 0.1-0%. This happens on...


Your pitch control is faulty or dry. Try spraying wd 40 into the pitch sliding hole form top to bottom. Dont over spray it. Just a bit from top to bottom will do. If issue still persists, then there's some capacitors are weak which controls this pitch.

Pitch slider


usually, when you buy the pitch fader itself, then it comes with the circuit board. Ring up panasonic or a distributor and maybe they stock them, but im not sure why you need just a circuit board...and if u bought a pitch and it came without one, then just give a ring around...at least someone will stock it

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 Slider


You more than likely have to have the pitch control replaced or cleaned.

1210 mk5g pitch adjustor


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.

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.

SL1210 mk2 pitch problem


You lack the proper tools to calibrate the pitch. Here are is a tutorial on calibrating your unit: http://www.djproaudio.com/cgi-bin/Help/kb.cgi?do=read&id=18&lang=en Also, that decal on the turntable that measures speed, is not an exact science. It's just an indicator to give you an estimate of the speed your turntable is rotating. It's not to be used as an exact measurement. Over time, pitch controls tend to drift from their original settings. Calibrating it back to factory specs might fix the problem, however, there are various other factors which control the drive of these turntables. So, if this does not work, the problem lies somewhere else - usually within 1 of the 3 IC's.
