Because DJs don't like to have the hinges on they usually just rest the lids on top. I'm not sure if the M5Gs come with the hinges. I know that the M3Ds did not. Check to see if your turntables came with the hinges, if they didn't you can order some and install them

The 1210m5g comes with hinge-free lids.

If you search for 1210m5g hinge-free dust cover you will see this mentioned.

It should be fairly obvious. The only thing I can think of it that the hinges are missing (these slot in to both the lids and the turntable and are easily lost if someone has been using them with the lids off).

If they are missing, it certainly would make it difficult to figure out!

Turntable power knob broke..


there should be a metal bit in the middle of that switch housing, sorta like the spindle on the platter, it should have one flat edge just get some pliers and twist the metal bar in the middle clockwise, until you replace the switch that will be the only way to swtich it off and on.

ive done this before many times, and sometimes in clubs the decks are in bad shape, so i always bring pliers, just in case!

Technics SL-L92 directdrive automatic turntable (needle fixed in lid)


Not sure what could have happened here. Maybe a wire came loose - doubtful, but possible. You will have to open her up to see if there is anything unusual inside. Or, you'll need to take it to a service center for a diagnosis.

How old is my Technics SL 1210 Mk2


Here's some information for you. Since your unit is a SL1210MK2, it may be harder to determine the age of the unit:

It is possible to tell the year (and the month) when the SL-1200 was manufactured from the serial number on the back or bottom of the turntable. SL-1200 serial numbers are in two different formats, depending on the date of manufacture. It isn't exactly possible to determine the decade in which the SL-1200 in question was manufactured, as the serial number contains only the last digit of the year. If the year digit is 8, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1978, 1988 or 1998. If the year digit is 0, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1980, 1990 or 2000. One rule of thumb is that old-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1970s and 1980s, while new-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1990s and beyond.
Old-format serial number: NHOJF20765 (SL-1200 manufactured 1982)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured. These serial numbers contain no indication of the month of manufacture. It should be noted that serial numbers in this format contain no letters following digits.
New-format serial number: GE4FB001154 (SL-1200 manufactured June 2004)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured, while the month of manufacture is indicated by the letter following it. Months are coded as letters between A and L inclusive; A indicates January, B indicates February, and so on.
In addition to the above, all the SL-1200MK2s from the 70's and early 80's have a 4 inch diameter plate where the RCA and ground wires enter the chassis in the rubber base of the unit. The later models have a smaller hole through which the wires enter the unit.

FYI, the dust covers on this model do not come with hinges. So, you'll have to purchase them separately.

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.
