Question about Technics SL-1200MK5 Turntable

1 Answer

Leveling Turntable I recently tried to level my turntables with a circular spirit level to get a better sound from them and it seems that the table that supports them is bowing a bit. I tried adjusting the feet on the turntables to level them but the feet come off before the turntables are level. Is it okay to use shims underneath the feet of the turntables to level them?

Yes, shims are fine, but just remember, shims are prone to movement. Why don't you bring all the feet to their maximum setting, then adjust from there. Perhaps the table it is sitting on needs the shims?

That's right.

Here are some in-depth instructions.
Turntable-belts generally go from the spindle motor to the underside of the platter. The platter, or table tray, is the metallic structure which supports the record. After taking the platter off the turntable, a pretty self-explanatory process, look for the only large, circular "lip" on the platter's backside and wrap your belt around it. Make sure the band is flat, not twisted. Put the platter back in its original place and, working through one of the holes in the platter, pull the turntable belt to the far side of the spindle motor.

I hope this helps.

I have not used it in a long time seems like the speed is wrong when i put it on 33/1/3 plays slow when i put on 45 it much better playing the 33


Good day. It sounds to me like the belt is worn. Under the felt of the turning section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

Hooked my turntable to my compaq desktop computer. Turntable plays, but I have no sound.


I would be very surprised if you have a phono input on your sound card.What you need is a phono preamp because the signal level coming from your t.table is too low for the line input,You can find it in any electronic supplier like radio shack. Have fun

One of my DJ turntables = only left side stereo sound


need to narrow it down, using 1 turn table ONLY with the mixer on channel 1 (the chanel that is working) to test reciever is working properly and sound working on both side of the speakers, this eliminate the first turn table. Next, disconnect the working turn table (1) and connect your second turn table to the same chanel and see if you getting the sound coming chanel 1 just as your first turn table did. If you getting sound coming out from turn table on ch1 than is not the turn table issue. It will be you mixer having problems. You cant solve the problems having everything connected. Testing one turn table at a time using working chanel on the mixer to see if both turn table working properly. If you use the same chanel testing both turn table and the second one does not work than it will be one of your turn table is faulty. Note: if you find and test both of your turn table is working properly than it will be your mixer. good luck and hope that help..

Sony ps-lx2 turntable clicks when spinning


It seems something may have come loose over time or history, but you will have to delve inside to see what it is. It sounds as though the fault should be obvious.

If you do not want to do this, a repair shop should have no problem. I assume that the deck is working ok otherwise.

Crosley traveler turntable noise


Hello attaboy. You may need to check you ac cord if the noise is in turntable, radio, & cassettte mod. If it has a 3 prong plug than you are missing a GND connection, in the cord or inside the unit. If it has a 2 prong plug than take it back or open it up and replace filter capacitors or bridge rectifiers in units power supply.

Turntable Issues


Check to make sure that your voltage setting is set correctly. Look under the turntable platter. You'll see a voltage selector. Make sure it's properly set for your area (115V or 220V).

If this does not solve the problem, or you have a turntable that does not have the voltage setting feature, then you might have a faulty turntable drive issue or an issue with the power, which means something is wrong on the main board (located underneath the turntable platter).
