Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
This is a self diagnosis but i think i have either a pitch or drive problem on my techniks sl-1210mk2 if the pitch control is on 0 then the turntable appears fine but when i either move the fader + or - the platter slows down with a slight jerky movement, even if i move the pitch control to +8 it goes as slow as if it was on -8 there is no difference, can any1 help meee please
Yep, time to replace the pitch control. You can attempt to do this yourself, however good soldering skills are required (not the time to learn). You will have to desolder the old pitch control, and solder on the new one. Which is why I say, now is not the time to practice soldering on your turntable. You could actually cause more damage.
If after replacing the pitch control, you still have the same issue, then there is something wrong with the drive on the unit. The drive is controlled by various integrated circuits (IC's), and they are known to short out every now and then. The problem is isolating the correct IC. FYI, Technics is starting to discontinue parts, and 1 of the main IC's on this unit is no longer available (IC302 - Nand Gate).
You can order the PITCH CONTROL HERE.
