Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
Hi..Ive knocked the top black plastic bit off the start stop knob on my decks...1st time in 20yrs so about time i did some damage. Inside, I can see the brass post that i assume was holding the plastic lid on, has dropped into its shaft...any help on fixing would be much appreciated :-)
No easy way to fix this. You can do this one of two ways:
1) The correct way
You'll have to open up your turntable, and this means going in from the bottom. Instructions for opening your turntable are located HERE. Once your inside, you'll see the area where you need to be working. You'll need to order a new On/Off switch, which can be found HERE. Just put back on the way you took off the old one, and that's pretty much it. There is a small spring and a small metal ball bearing you have to be careful you don't lose when removing the old power knob shaft. This is held down by a cir-clip on a white plastic piece. You have to remove this piece in order to swap out the old brass shaft with the new shaft/knob.
2) The incorrect way - but easy to do.
Try and grab the brass shaft with a pair of needle nose pliers or similar. Grab your broken On/Off knob and put some crazy glue on the inside where the shaft aligns. Carefully place the knob on the shaft, and hold in place. This will be somewhat tricky, but you'll figure out a way. You might have to flip your turntable upside down in order to get the shaft to stick out. Just make sure if you do flip the turntable upside down, that you don't rest your turntable on your tonearm - otherwise you'll have an even bigger issue.
