Braking not working right

My son just brought a Technics SL1200 turntable and the braking was not working right so i opened up the TT and adjusted the braking pot (VR201) to the right, but when i push the start/stop switch the TT would not stop, it would slow down but not completely stop, what else could i do to make it stop?

Well, does the platter spin at a constant speed (33 or 45 rpm), or does it spin super fast? If it spins at a constant speed, and it just wont stop, replacing that pot should do the trick (VR201 can be purchased HERE). You can attempt to replace it yourself (soldering skills are required), or just buy the part, and have a service tech replace it for you.

If it does not solve the problem, then the issue is with one of the IC's (integrated circuits). This is a more complex diagnosis and repair. But try replacing VR201 first, then taking it from there.

Good luck!

One channel on my sl1200 mk 2 has very minimal sound out put. I have to turn my balance selector on my reciever almost full right to balance the volume. Any insight to this problem is...


As a test, switch the right and left RCA cables from the turntable to the amp. If the problem reverses, the issue is in the turntable or with the cables. If it stays the same, its a problem with the amp.
