Yes, you can have these replaced. You can GO HERE to purchase parts for this model. If you have soldering skills, then you can attempt the replacement yourself, however, it is a little bit tricky, so you must be careful. If you have no soldering skills, and have no idea on where to begin, DO NOT DO THIS REPAIR yourself. As you might cause more damage to the unit.

Audio cuttin out on my CDJ 800


Do you mean the RCA connection (red/white) on the rear of the unit? If so, then yes, more than likely it might have come loose, or damaged. If your comfortable opening it up, you can attempt to repair yourself. Otherwise, I would suggest taking it to a service professional.

Have you tried a different set of cables?

Always remember, whenever removing your cables, you want to grab the cables by the head of the connection, and never by the actual cable itself - you also don't want to yank your cables loose - this is usually what causes these sorts of connection problems.

Poor quality sound


Double check all your cables. The only 2 things that affect sound on the 1200s is the RCA cables and the tonearm. I would first replace the RCA cables to a better quality set.

Hum on right channel


It doesn't really sound like this tech knew what he was doing. He probably connected the ground wire incorrectly. I would also suggest opening up the tonearm base section, and checking to see the work he did. Perhaps he did not solder the RCA leads correctly.

If all is good, then there are only 2 other things which may cause this... 1) Tonearm, 2) Cartridge. You'll have to check those 2 out.


FYI, I work on 1200s for a living, so I know these machines inside out.

Tecnics 1200 MK2 No sound.


It's more than likely your tonearm or your RCA cables. Does the sound come in at all? Try wiggling the RCA cables. If no sound whatsoever, then more than likely it's your tonearm, and will need to be replaced.

Tonearms for this model are available HERE, however, I don't recommend trying to replace this yourself, as it is rather complicated, and you could cause more damage to the unit.
