No power to my 1210 MK2s

Hi, i have a problem that is really bugging me, i have have had my 1210s for around 7 years now and never had a problem, i was on them the other day and they were fine, 2 days later and they dont power up at all, i turn the switch and nothing happens.
They were plugged into a 6 plug power surge adapter along with my mixer and amp, both the mixer and amp are fine, ive tried plugging them into various plug socketsin my house plus ive changed the fuses in the plugs and checked the onboard fuses on the power board under the platter and they look fine, ive also opened them up from the bottom and the switch mechanism on both look fine.

HI,

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.

    you may also have caused some damaged to the main board, if you
    did not follow proper grounding procedure before handling.

    Check out the internal fuse make sure all the connections are properly fixed inside.remove platter remove plastic cover main fuse is there and try replacing it.

    If you still face the problem then the only solution is to get it repaired.

    make sure all the connections, cables, and whatever are properly
    seated, or not broken. Make sure that all the soldering was correctly done, and nothing was bridged.

I have two 1210s, a mk 2 and a mk 5. When I let go of a record on my mk 2 it seems to take longer to catch speed compared to my mk 5, and feels 'slack'. Any ideas what this is?


Being the older model, the chances are that the drive belt on the Mk2 turntable has got worn and shiny with use. It may also have stretched a bit. If you are using the tables for 'scratching', the fact that you are holding onto the turntable when the motor is running is placing a strain on the belt that it is not really designed for. I would recommend changing the belt - you can easily find spare belts for sale on the internet

My 1210s will not turn on as if there is no power going to them,there is, and i have changed the plug fuses! any ideas?


Faulty switch? If all else fails go inside! Often from the underside of the turntable and see what you can find.

Me technic 1210s wont *** on ive tryed change in the fuses wiv 1 from tv an still nothing any ideas?


It could have got an internal fuse, not the one in the plug. Also the power switch might have broken. There's only one way to find out! Take the bottom off and have a look.

Tone arm snapped off


Unfortunately, not an easy fix. You will need to replace the entire tonearm, and this should only be done by a qualified service center.

If you would like to try it yourself, check out this site - http://djprolab.com - their are DO It Yourself repair videos for this model.

NOTE: This is NOT an easy fix, and if you had to ask this type of question, I am going to assume you don't have much knowledge with electronic repair.

No Power to 1210s


Problem is not the fuses, but the power supply / power transformer has blown. This is why you should always wrap exposed wiring with electrical tape or heatshrink tubing.

The power supply can be purchased HERE, but this is not an easy replacement. And if you blew it by not properly replacing the Pop-up light, than I DON'T suggest you try to replace the power supply on your own either. You could really cause even more damage, and possible harm to yourself and your property.

Technics 1210 Distorts


Well, if it's not your tonearm, then the issue is either your RCA cables (red/white), or your cartridge/stylus.

There is nothing else on this unit that would cause distortion in sound. Well, unless you have the unit sitting next to a very powerful electrical source. Try a different outlet as well, just to be on the safe side that it's not electrical interference.

Maybe you should try putting a smaller (in Watts) lamp in the pop light...

Torque Problem


They actually need to be "broken in". The mk5 uses a different pitch board, allowing you to reverse, pitch up and down to 16, and lock and unlock the quartz. The mk5 is more precise, so its also more sensitive. Notice the notches on the turntable shaft behind the tonearm weight. The mk5  is just make to be finer calibrated.....your decks are fine, and more so probably your mk2s as well.

Oh and also, the infinite lubrication used on technics that was developed in the 70s is no match for the formula developed in the late 90s. Slick!!
