This is a common issue with the drive in these units. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix. You will need to take it to a qualified service center for repair.

2 dead amps, am I dreaming that I could ever fix them is it even worth it... Sansui Au-101 & Technics SU-X302


it is always good to take on a project from which you will learn a lot
everything is fixable and in the case of electronics it takes a fair amount of electronic knowledge before you begin
You are obviously very keen to do this so you have to start from the right angle to have any chance of success
first you will need a full schematics of the circuitry so that you can see what works what and what is happening after the next component
next get beginner electronic books to get the right ideas and approach because if you know what each component is supposed to do in the circuit it makes it easier to understand a result when you do something
finally all electronic shops uses an oscilloscope when testing circuitry as it shows the wave pattern produced and the voltage after each component
example --- a capacitor shows a stop/ start pattern , ac current shows a wave pattern, dc current a flat line and much more
keep at it but be aware that the project will take time and if you surround yourself with technical publications and the right equipment you will get it working
remember it takes a qualified electronics technician around 5 years of learning to do what you hope to achieve at home

I use my Sl1200 with Serato and the other day one of the decks was starting slow. I solved the problem by spinning the record first and then placing the stylus down. But I want it to go back to the way...

HI,
After long years of use the electrolytic capacitors in the circuitry will get slightly change its value. If so it can affect the speed of the turntable. Its better to replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the turntable's electronic circuit board. It will not coast a lot for all the capacitors. Will only come around $3 or $4. .
OK

There are 2 problems with the my deck: 1. The +-0 light for the pitch will not work but everything else about the pitch works fine. 2. The deck will not change from 33bpm to 45bpm, I have replaced the...


Hi, please do this test for me. With the deck running on 33 speed and the pitch control set to 0 use your finger on the platter centre and speed it up manually as much as you can. Doe's the quartz lock lamp come on? If not then open the deck up and loosen off the fixing screws on the circuit board that has the 33/45 buttons. Try to change speed with the board loosened off. If none of the above makes any difference replace the quartz lock neon. Use only original Technics neon. As a matter of interest have you done any mods to the deck? Cheers John,

Hi there. although my mk2 plays normally,sudenly i cannot hear it. i`ve checked wires and cartridge, what else it could be?


You need to check that the signal is getting to the amp. This can be done by removing the wires off the cartridge for the left and right channels. With the amp on touch the ends of the wires. If you hear a buzz the signal is getting to the amp and the cartridge is dead, but if you hear nothing and if the wiring is as you say good. Then the pre-amp in your amp for the cartridge has failed. This pre-amp will only affect the record deck and no other functions. If it has gone you can trace the wires from the sockets to it. Sometimes it will be on a seperate PC board. It's often a single IC that has failed. If you can replace it yourself be careful with the new one as these are often static sensitive chips.
PS the phono scokets on the amp sometimes buzz if you pull the plugs in & out!

Technics SL-1700 Mk2, tonearm doesn't lower, cueing doesn't work


There's a rubber belt or O ring that broke. I couldn't find one at Technics, so I took the old parts to the hardware store and found an O ring in plumbing parts that was very close. Been working for years just fine!

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.
