Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
Keep losing r hand channel, sometimes works, then doesnt.
Have metered the phono cables to connection board, all ok.
Used various stylus and cartridges sometimes works, then doesnt.
Have cleaned tone arm contacts with cotton bud and switch clean as looked dirty, still works intermitantly?
Hey, I'm having the same problem. I found this with a little help from a small site I found called Google:
Here's what he suggests. I have no clue what it means but I'm sure that it cane be decoded with some manuals:
Technics SL1210 , 1979 ?
Intermittent 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.
