Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a technics sl-b2 that hasn't been used in a while. It was my fathers, looks in good shape. I put a new belt on. I'm having trouble with the pitch adj. It seems to not be able to maintain the same pitch for very long, I'm constantly adjusting it. Is this a simple fix, or should I upgrade to a newer turntable.

Switches and other controls that permit the user to adjust the speed on the turntable often become erratic due to oxidation of the metal contacts contained therein. Dust and smoke add to the problem. Cleaning the controls with quality electronics-type contact cleaners usually gives years of happy service. The job is best left to someone familiar with the complete assembly since other finite adjustment potentiometers are often employed and located on the internal circuit board.

I have a technic turntable. SL B2 My needle is worn. I am trying to find the right needle/stylus for it. Do you know where I can purchase one.


You need to look at the cartridge it fits into. It will have a make and model number on it. Put that into Google search and it should come up with suppliers of both.

I need to put new turntable belt on a Technics SL-B200


The belt goes underneath the turntable platter. First you attach to the lip on the bottom of the turntable platter, then you put the platter on the turntable. You'll see some holes on the platter, after you put it on, just rotate the platter, until you see the motor shaft, then pinch the belt around the motor shaft.

Adjustments on Technics SL-B2 Automatic Turntable


the pitch is just the speed, adjust to your liking.

"How do I adjust tracking pressure and anti skate?
If you are lucky enough to have these two adjustments here's how: Move tracking force counter weight till needle suspends/hovers above record. then rotate numbers to zero. (this is zero grams pressure on record) then rotate weight AND numbers to recommended tracking pressure for your needle usually 1.5 to 3 grams is average. Then rotate anti skate to be equal. That should get you there. If you still have adjustment related distortion then it may be time for a new needle.
NOTE: Anti skate is adjusting side to side pressure WITHIN GROOVE of record. Tracking pressure is how hard the needle is pushing down inside the groove." from

turntableneedles.com/FAQs_ep_33.html

lots of crackles are caused by crummy records and needles. to some small degree are unavoidable no matter what, but above all the records must be clean.

someday the manual may show up for free here

How do i put my belt back on a technics dc servo automatic turntable system SL-B210 i havnt used it for a while so when i got it out to use the belt was lose uder the thing the disc gose on


Remove the platter, then take the belt, and wrap it to the bottom lip of the platter. You'll see an inner lip underneath the platter... this is where the belt goes.

Next, put the platter back on, and you'll see 2 holes on alternate sides of the platter. Rotate the platter until the brass shaft of the motor is exposed - usually @ the 11 o'clock position. Pinch the belt and pull it out, to wrap around the shaft.

That's it.

Good luck!
