Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
Hey my 1210 goes mono from time to time, any suggestions ?? I hope that its only a pickup problem.
Hey guy's, I did some GOOGLE-ing and found this: It doesn't make sense to me, but I think I can decode it with some other manuals and such. I found it on a page of other electrical problems that you might find useful if you have other turntable issues: http://www.divdev.fsnet.co.uk/repair3.htm
Technics SL1210 , 1979 ?
Intermittant loss of one channel.
The headshell was slightly loose on the tonearm
and moving inwards would cause loss of one channel.
To remove this arm undo the slotted lock ring at the very top
of the arm pivot and undo the central pin. The arm
with jiggling can then be removed assuming enough slack in
the signal wires. Undoing the 2 watchmakers screws near
the headshell allows removal of the 4 pin connector.
Presumably the wires inside the tone arm at this connector
could touch the inside of the tonearm and lead to
break in sprung connection. Placed a bit of brass shim
in the slack area and pushed back in to wedge tight.
Also removed the soft washer on the plug shaft of the headshell.

Check to make sure you have a nice solid connection on your tonearm from your cartridge. The problem is either your tonearm or your RCA (red/white) cables.
Neither are easy repairs, unless you have soldering skills/experience. The tonearm replacement is the more difficult and more costly of the two.
