Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
It seem that one of my SL 1210 MK2 height adjustment (the big black ring ) cant be adjusted. It's stuck, unmovable. What sould i do to resolve the problem?
You can drop some WD40 on the outside of the rings. But, before you do that, make sure that you have the height adjustment lock OFF. This is located on the rear of your tonearm, right underneath the balance weight, right on the tonearm base. Just make sure it's in the UNLOCK position.
If it is unlocked, then spray some WD40 along the outside of the tonearm base. One of 2 things either happened:
1) It's just full of grime/grease/dirt, and you need to put some pressure to turn it
2) The threads have gotten misaligned. If this is the case, there is nothing you can do, other than replacing the part. THE PART IS LOCATED HERE. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix, as you will have to take apart your entire tonearm base & assembly. This requires de-soldering. And if you don't have experience than I don't suggest you attempt this on your own.
Try the WD40 first, then see how that works for you.
