Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable

1 Answer

Hi. The audio lead on one of my decks does not work and I believ it is due to the lead. I have bought another one to replace but I cannopt find any info online how to do it so I am unsure if I should attempt to do this myself. Can you advise of any manuals to help or recommend somewhere in the uk (midlands) where I can take it to be fitted. Kind Regards

Here is a LINK to a DIY repair on replacing the RCA leads on a 1200. There is soldering involved, so if you don't have the skills, find someone who does. Otherwise, you'll burn the PC board, and this board is no longer available. We've actually had to source our own replacement board, because of the amount of people burning their boards, and requesting new ones! They are HERE, in the event you need one (hopefully you wont).

Good luck, and BE CAREFUL!

Here are some disassembly instructions for you.

Hi, Bought marantz tape deck on Ebay. Works fine but running slower than normal How to fix, Im a Hobbiest

Usually this is due to old belts. You should replace them.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you'll probably have to adjust motor speed. This is done by a variable resistor that may be found on the main board or sometimes on the motor itself.

Hope you can solve the problem.

I just bought a Kenwood KDC-MP438U I installed all the wires right, power is to the deck because it accepts a cd. the deck face doesn't light up. I called in at Kenwood and they had me test it directly to...

Check your Ground Wire inside the Truck and Check the Illumination Wire. I Think on Kenwood the Illumination Wire goes with the Power Wire. If they still will not work, You might want to get a Wiring Harness from Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Motorized flip face won't open

i have had this deck since December 06 when it first came out. Retail was around a grand but with an employee discount price was only three hundred. For whatever reason the motorized face does not work well when the interior gets hot. I do believe it is a defect in the deck. If your deck can be returnded get rid of it. I originally thought the problem was due to low voltage going through the deck, but it has nothing to do with that. People will inform you to replace a ribbon on the unit, but really why bother, more than likely it will fail again.
P.S. if the unit does partially open you can still force it the rest of the way. I did this by pushing the face up while it was trying to rotate. Mind you I only resorted to this due to bring sick of the current cd, and I was on the way to installing another deck. If the deck will continue to work after forcing it open numerous times, i do not know.

No sound out of deck

If you've already replaced the RCA /Phono cables, then the only other item that would cause this kind of problem is your tonearm, and it will need to be replaced.

No power cable

There is no polarisation on the input lead - It won't hurt the deck if you get it reversed. If you have a shaver lead that fits, that should be fine.

Uninstalling KEH P2800 from dash 92 GMC Safari


I believe you can pop the bezel loose using a butterknife to pry on it. do not force it too much as it will break. Use 2 Butter knives, one on each edge to release the Deck. Once the catches are held back by the knives, pull the unit straight out.
