The transformer is not fried (at least not likely)

PROTECTION IC'S 2 - 2SD637 (These are fried...$2 each...:)

IF NO POWER CHECK THESE are NORMAL
TRANSISTOR NPN 2 UNITS MAIN SOURCE OF NO POWER
Q2 Q3 (EBC label on the board)
I did this myself. EXACTLY the same thing. Two protection IC's (I prefer fuses -.-). Order from Syracuse semiconductors. 5count for $10 and fast free shipping. You can get singles for $2 on ebay if you only want five, but then you have to wait on shipping from China. Good thing I went with 5, because I ruined the first pair running the iron to hot. LOL but it works now.

More than likely you fried your transformer. Also take a look at the fuses - some units have them, some don't - so first check to make sure they are not blown.

FYI, this unit has just enough circuit protection, and many times, when the Pop-up light or other repairs are done to the unit, and not done properly, issues such as these will occur. Especially with the pop-up light. Disconnect the pop-up light connection on the main board, then try powering up your unit. If it doesn't work, then your transformer is definitely fried and will need to be replace. You can order a replacement transformer HERE

My powerswitch on the sl 1200 is pushed in how do i pull iit out?


Basically you dont.
You will need to replace the power knob which comes complete with the brass rod that goes through the strobe housing. To do this you will need to remove the base of the deck - be carefull not to lose the spring and ballbearing.

Fried power on technics SL 1200MK2.


If you are lucky then just the fuse may have failed - usually F1 / 250mA / 20mm type.

If your unlucky the transformer may have fried - mail me for a price mail@technicsdjuk.com

No lights or responce (power issue)


If you do not see fuses on the smaller pc board, next to the main PC board, underneath the turntable platter, then you don't have any. Not all 1200s series turntables have these fuses. So, that means you more than likely blew the Technics power supply / transformer.

Not an easy fix, and I don't recommend you do this, as seeing how you did not replace the pop-up light correctly, it seems you lack the experience. When you saw that spark, that means that you did not shield the pop-up light wires properly, a big mistake. It more than likely touched the cabinet, and created a short - very common. This short is enough to take out he power supply.

You will have to take your unit to an authorized repair center for repair.

Good Luck!

Tonearm lift is probably a deteriorated belt. Google it, it's pretty common. The platter spinning might be due to a bad control board. You'll probably have to go to a repair shop to diagnose it.

Technics sl-1610 mk 2 turntable


Unfortunately, it does sound like a drive issue. Just so you know, these units are direct drive, so there is no physical motor. It's just a bunch of various circuits which drive the unit, and if any one of them go bad, it will affect your turntable speed. You will need to have this looked at by a service technician to determine which circuit is faulty.

Power failure


Hi Darren,

Out of curiosity, how did you find out it was this part at fault?

My deck has just had the same thing happen to it :(. Unfortunately turntables are not popular in Cyprus, so it looks like I have to diy it.
