Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable

1 Answer

I haven't been using my 1210 for quite some time and I happened to go and give them run for old times sake but they do not power up ...I tried changing plugs and directing them to the mains but still no luck. What is fishy is that both of them do not light up ...can some one help me out here please?

I don't know what you mean by "directing them to the mains". Can you simply plug them into a known good wall outlet? You are right that both not lighting up suggests the cause is outside of the turntables.

Why my e250 when i put in drive and give gas loos power like going to died

I cannot quite understand your question. Is your van loosing power when you try to accelerate . Please let me know as there can be a few problems like this. If it is loosing power when you are trying to accelerate ther is a possability of a couple of things
1. check your fuel filter it may be clogged up if you have not had it replaced or maybe your air filter is clogged not allowing your engine to breathe right will create this type of power loss.
2. If those are not it you may need to check out your ignition set up that being your distributor cap, your spark plugs if they are old your timing may be off but this is rare unless there has been a problem with your sensor also You may neeed to have it scoped take it to Auto zone they will run a diagnostic check on the van with their diagnostic code machine this will most likely tell you what is wrong and if they have the problem listed they most likely have the parts right there. Good Luck.
P.S. for your sake use the spell check and try to be clearer about your issues as if they are hard to understand they are hard to help.

Ppendo pad model pndpp41dg7bl won't boot up

We need more info about what happened that could have caused it, ok? Til then, here's a lil thing I just answered with someone else.
"ALWAYS try all the easy simple solutions 1st before you get into any complex ones! Then if simple solutions don't work, try others, but I'd sure avoid opening my laptop and monkeying around with stuff inside!
Usually the reset routine by unplugging the power cord and take out battery for a minute works,or try unplug/battery out/ hold power button down for 2 minutes, hook all back up again, BUT there are so many problems that can cause this same issue. It can be caused by a dead battery, bad power cord or connection, or liquid getting into the pc, or a new ap that is causing it. Mine even once had a problem that somehow "pages" in my system folder were locked, though I didn't lock them, but it kept my pc off til Windows found it's own solution online somehow. Just recently I installed a new ap that made my startup ap keep trying to keep it from running, and it kept insisting, so it took about 4 minutes before pc came on finally, and I then uninstalled that ap fast. As you can see, so many things can make it happen. Be careful what you do to attempt to fix it! If possible, always tell us exactly what you did before that happened. One thing you can try if it happens to you is- do the unplug/remove battery a minute, put both back in/on, and then when you start it up, before it starts loading Windows press F8 over and over til SAFE mode option comes on, pick safe mode, and go find in your system the Control Panel, then "Recovery", then "System Restore". That can take your PC back in time to a day or 3 before present and you lose no data. Pick a time very close to the last time you used the pc, and run that. Often that fixes any problem within the pc itself. Try again with a different time before giving that up. I'd never try other things 1st, til I tried these simple things.
Ask your question as a new question if that doesn't work for you, and give us details about what happened,please.
If you got liquid in it, DO NOT run pc for a couple weeks, and let it dry completely before you try to run it again. If it could be the battery, DO NOT go buy another one without being sure that's really the problem. Take your pc and old battery to a place that can check it for you, like a battery store. Don't just follow advice to open the pc and work on it!! If you're not an expert, you can ruin your pc.AND for your sanity's sake, always keep a recent backup! Paragon makes the best free backup aps. It's even possible to make a flash drive with your system only on it!

My Bonneville will quit running while going down the road suddenly. The engine will loose power first and then quit. If I stop and then turn the key off and then try to start the car will restart and run...

This is most likely due to a failing antitheft system. Next time this happens, look for a light in the dash somewhere that says "security" or might be a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If you see this light, go to this link for help.

Hello Cindy Wells, I saw you on and I am having a bit of a problem with my Canon PIXMA MP490. Basically every time I try to print something the printer will start working (i can hear it...

hi there,

it may be that a paper sensor is picking up a small piece of paper in the printer. Has any paper ever torn in the printer? if so there may be some left behind. Carefully inspect the printer to see if there is any small pieces of paper in the printer. You could also try unplugging all cables and taking the outer cover off to inspect closer.

Re the ink cartridges, inkjet printers are notorious for ink drying out in the cartridges and the nozzles blocking with old ink, if the printer is not used at least once a week. It happened to me, i had to get a new printer.

Hope this helps

Hi, each time i turn on the vacuum cleaner, the water in the tank will bubble and foam causing an overflow although the water level is just right. i will have to throw out the water and refill again....

Try changing the water before you turn it on the first time -- that will probably help you resolve the issue. It seems like there is probably some sort of soap or carpet shampoo in the system causing your foam issue. If your carpets have been shampooed or if you have spilled soap or detergent on your carpet at any point, the vacuum is probably picking up remnants of the soap when you are cleaning, and it is working its way into the water supply of the vacuum. This will continue to happen until you have completely removed the soap from your carpet -- and if you haven't cleaned out your vacuum very well. Try rinsing out the hoses and water tank really well, to make sure that the soap is not stuck in the vacuum itself and give it a try. Hopefully just rinsing out the machine will fix the problem.

I was given a small fridge. It was built by GE and is not but a few years old! It will turn on but will not cool! Please give me some troubleshooting tips to try to fix this thing!

Most of the dorm sized refrigerators is see that run but dont cool have a sealed system problem which is either a leak or compressor problem. Look in the small freezer section. many times, people are too impatiant to defrost them properly and use a tool to chip the ice away and inadvertantly puncture a hole in the tubing causing a leak. Seen that happen quite a few times.
