Did you ever open the turntable. It sounds like the on/off switch is bad. Remove the platter and screws with a phillips screw driver and just make sure the connections are in place. make sure you disconnect the power first. let me know what happens afterwards.

you might try lifting the platter off and putting a drop or two of light machine oil on the spindle. cleaning the motor might help also.

There is power going through my technics 1210,but the platter & strobe light still will not work


how do you know theres power to the unit if theirs no strobe light pitch adjuster light & the platter doesn't spin?
the power comes in & to the transformer first,then through the strobe switch, the transformer is what blows when you short the target light out.....i've seen this many a time when people try & change the target lights to blue neon.

Help for technics 1200 MK2 and 1210 Speed is too fast


On the 1200MK2 the pitch control slider is for just that purpose. Disregard the 0 setting and use the illuminated strobe marks on the platter to adjust to nominal speed. When they appear to be motionless you are there. The control on the 1210 may be a knob but the same principles apply.

Technics sl 1210 MK2 does not start


Your switch probably went bad. Does it not respond at all? Does the button at least 'bounce' back when you press it? If not, then you might have messed something up when putting it back together.

Technics 1210 mk2 problem with pitch and lights


Check that your voltage settings are set correctly. This is located underneath your turntable platter. If you remove the slipmat, you will see 2 holes on the metal platter. Rotate the platter till you see the voltage switch, located @ the 9'o'clock position. Make sure it's set to your correct settings (N.America = 115V / Euro = 220V). If not, you will need a flat head screw driver to switch it. Before you switch it, make sure your unit is off and unplugged. After you swich it, it should be ok.

If your still having issues with the speed and the pop-up light, then there is something seriously wrong, and will need to be checked by a technician. Sometimes a resistor or IC will go bad, causing the speed issue, but for the pop-up light - that's usually faulty wiring generally caused by an incorrect replacement.

Did you buy this new or used? Have you had this serviced recently?

1200 platter drag


the platter should have two holes on it,my 1210 does. put your thumb on the spindle and a finger in each hole and prize the platter off. theres no screws holding the platter on just a tapered spindle shaft. it is quite heavy so a good pull will do it. as for the scraping it might be as simple as packaging placed under the platter to secure it for shipping, technics are built really well so i cant imagine it could be anything major. i hope this helps you out, if you need any more help let us know. please also let us know how you get on. darren
