Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
Hi,i bought a pair of turntables sl-1210mk2 of ebay but the problem is when the platters are spining they dont't feel heavy and hard as a normal technics turntable would.
Have you tried swapping out the platters? Sometimes this will fix the problem. Also, although VERY RARE, make sure you were sold the right platters with your turntables. I doubt they found a pair of copy cat platters, but ya never know!
You can remove them by just lifting them up and off. There is a magnet that holds them down, so if you encounter resistance, just tap the center shaft with a wood block, mallet, or similar. Don't hit it too hard, you just want to disrupt the magnetic force, and/or loosen the platter from the shaft (which sometimes gets stuck).
Other than that, I've never heard of this type of issue, and I repair these things for a living.
