Sounds like your transformer is blown. This is located underneath the turntable platter, right next to the main PCB (Printed Circuit Board). You'll have to have this replaced. I do not suggest replacing it yourself, unless you are handy with electronics. Otherwise, please take it to a service center for repair.

FYI, the part is located here (www.1200s.com), so you can purchase the part separately, then take it in.

Good luck!

Im not getting any sound out of my left rca, I cant install scratch live on the mac-pro, a vertical line appears on calibration...?


You need to have your RCA's replaced. If you are technically inclined you should be able to replace them your self. All you need is a soldering kit and a screw driver, and of course a new pair of RCA cables. You can use any regular pair of RCA cables. Cut them and strip out enough wire to solder them on. If you don't want to do that, then you can have it done at the shop and they usually just charge about $30.00 if that much. There's plenty of youtube videos that walk you through the process. Check out the videos by viperfrank. His videos helped me do this and change the light on my 1200.

SL-1200 Turntable: My brand new Technics 1200 MK2 sounds wobbly when ...


Try plugging it into a different power point. The problem is with the power supply fluctuating. You can eliminate that with a UPS, here is a link to wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uninterruptible_power_supply

Technics 1200, no sound out right speaker


And it will be. I can almost steak my life on it. Easy to replace. Most djs had to already. Most off us went to Radio Shack and bought the 6 foot gold RCA's and cut them in half for both decks. Its not that hard to do. Any problems message me.

When i turn on my technic 1200 turntable it the lights flicker and looses audio sometimes


Hi, i doubt the 2 are related as the T 1200 doesnt have a preamp, only speed control.

Maybe try checking to if there are any loose ground wires in the turntable (ONLY if you are comfortable to open)

Other than that it the sound issue might be either on the head, or on the phono outs not connecting properly.

If the speed is remaining good, then the issue is just with the LEDS themselves, maybe loose solder, if it is changng pitch as well, then dry joints in the power supply/pitch control

Hope that helps

Technics SL 1600Mk2 turntable works, but turns off seconds later


The SL1600MK2 is a direct drive turntable. Meaning that there are multiple electronic components which make it turn. With that said, the only place you can start is the main circuit board. Unfortunately, this will not be an easy diagnosis without the proper testing tools - multimeter, and a scope to get you started.

Otherwise, you'll have to take it to a service technican for repair.

Unfortunately, all parts for this model are discontinued, so if it's something that is specific to this unit, it will be very hard to source parts.

No control of platter speed


One of the drive circuits on the main board are faulty, and will need to be replaced. This is not an easy fix, so you will need to take it to a qualified service center for service and repair. Not an expensive fix, but a little time consuming in isolating the issue.

Technic 1200 mk2 turntable wont spin


need to know if it powers up. Does it try to spin, do you hear it trying to spin? More than likely the on/off switch went bad. No, I am not referring to the ON/OFF knob. THere is a switch this engages when turned. The part is S601. You might also want to replace the Start/Stop switch as well. If neither work, then the issue is on the main PC board, and probably IC101, or IC201 with the problem. At this stage, you will have to have a service tech look at your unit.
