Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
Both my Technics 1210 mk3 have a feedback problem, when a record is on the platter, if you knock the deck or tap it, you get a hollow/echo type noise through the speakers. Have check the earth wires which are ok........Please help its driving me nuts !! Cheers Tufty
More than likely it's your RCA cables, or it could be a tonearm or cartridge issue. First try and swap out the cartridges on your turntable, and see if the problem persist. If it does, then you can narrow it down tot the tonearm and RCA cables. Since the RCA cables are easier and cheaper to replace, I would suggest doing this first - You can try
to do this yourself, however soldering experience is required. You can
purchase the parts HERE - and install yourself, or try to find a reputable service center area to replace the cables.
A word of advice, try not to use the original RCA cables that are installed with the turntables, as they aren't of the greatest quality. Try and put a better brand, or use the MOGAMI cables, available HERE.
If the problem persists, then the issue with your tonearm, and replacing the tonearm involves a lot more in-depth work, and I would only suggest having it done by a profession. You can buy the part HERE, and bring it with you to the service center, to minimize your cost.
There is nothing else that would cause this kind of problem except one of the 3 (or combination). So, by a process of elimination, you'll solve the problem.
