Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
I have had my technics 1210s for 8 years now with no problems but this year one has gone funny
the records sound as if they are wobbling and the deck will start up again from pressing the stop button and the strobe is not stable ( the largest circles are meant to be static when at zero pitch green light on but my turntable they looks as if the platter is wobbling but i have changed the platters over and both are fine
has my motor had it or can it be healed?
Been seeing a lot of problems like this on the newer decks. if the lights instead of moving smoothly are moving a bit, then stopping a little, then moving a bit more. or just wobbling a little bit usually has something to do with the motors... I have also just had to have mine replaced to was having the same problem.... expensive

It could be the motor bad. There's also a voltage regular, possibly an LM317 that could cause this. Also I've seen the lube grease on the platter turn to tar after time and cause problems.
