Why is my Technics sl1200 mk2 platter movings back and forth when I hold it, light on the switch blinks and the lamp wont completely turn off, platter spins with no pitch control at all, what to do?


There would be no way to service your unit, if you live in remote area. There are too many ICs to just guess at one. Anything from a drive ic to a microprocessor(computer inside your technics). You need to be highly tehnical to repair this. Sorry.

My technic 1200 mk2 skips records, i tried other needles and adjusted tone arm. Even tried pennies on cartridge


Ensure that the turntable is sitting as flat as possible and does not allow any external vibration to penetrate.
Also try operating it without a record on it make sure that the plate is turning smoothly without interruption and also does not have any vibration.

Technics sl 1200 MK2 WEAK SOUND


Regarding the poor sound quality (and possibly the skipping):
check the needle condition, see if exchanging it with a needle (or the entire pickup head) from a working turntable does any good.

Check the pickup connection pins (contacts on the pickup head and on the end of the wires coming through the arm from the unit), see if there is any dirt or oxydation and clean the contacts if necessary, also check for any damage to the wires.

As for the skipping - a heavily worn needle may affect the sound quality and cause skipping as well - if cahnging the needle (or the pickup head) doesn't make a change, try to realign the weight on the tone arm so that the pickup head will become a bit heavier, this could help somewhat (before you actually try to realign the weight, try to put a small coin or a small weight of some kind on the pickup head while it is playing a record, if the skipping goes away, you need to realign the tone arm weight).

This could also be a problem with the tone arm lifting mechanism (may be obstructed by something or damaged so it won't let the tone arm sit properly onto the record and "grab" the groove).

I just mentioned a few things you might want to check, but don't take anything for granted, the problem may as well be elsewhere in the unit.

Basically, have just bought 1210's mark 5's one of them, the tone arm makes the Brand New cartridge skip when it gets to certain points, its because the tone arm sort of swivels, like something is not...


i have this case now, i bought some mk2's. If u have a record that is single sided, put the side that dosent play on the slip matt, put the needle on it...add more weight if needed. it should stay where u put it, if it dosent...then it should be a case of moving the anti-skate, untill you are satisfied that it is not moving anymore. If u dont have a record like that, like i dont....i took the stylus off...and the slipmatt off...and let the cart run on the platter at 33, i hope it helps your problem, if i dosent then i would take it to a technician.
