    how do i open it up?

  • jasmado May 02, 2009

    I have a Technics SL B20 (after looking inside, determined it's direct drive). Before opening, the power light would come on and I would hear what sounded like the motor working--no spin however. Checked inside and from the motherboard there's a cable that feeds to a "chip" (?) right next to the on/off switch. The chip is encased in this rectangular open box thing. What is this thing called? I'm speculating that the power from the motherboard is not being transferred to the turning mechanism through this chip, so the chip needs replacing. Am I on the right track??

Not sure what could have happened here. Maybe a wire came loose - doubtful, but possible. You will have to open her up to see if there is anything unusual inside. Or, you'll need to take it to a service center for a diagnosis.

    If you have to ask how to open it up, then I don't suggest doing it. Generally, it entails, flipping your turntable upside down. You'll have to be careful when doing this. Remove the screws from the bottom, and that's it. However, it's not as simple as it seems. So, as I said... if you have to ask, then I DO NOT SUGGEST you do this.

How can I get a manual on how to fix this item? The arm needs adjusting. Thanks P.S. its a Technics sl-dd33 turntable


Technics website may have one. The counter weight has a setscrew on it. Loosen it ans move the weight slightly forward until the needle just rests completely in the groove and stays there. Too much will cause excessive wear to the needle and the record.

I've just set up my Technics SL D212 turntable after moving house. It keeps skidding across records. I've tried the usual adjustments and leveled the turntable. Any clues?


Please make 100% certain the needle is still in place... To test this *GENTLY* rub your fingertip over it and you should hear noise from the speakers when you do. If there is NO noise then there is likely no needle.
Did you put the protective device on the needle/arm for the move? Is it still on there?
Sorry Mate, that the only thing I've got to help....

I had not used my turntable for about five years due to no needle. Found a needle and played two LPs, then on the third one, it just did not move or work at all. It lit up but just acted like it had no...


The low grinding noise could be the motor spinning with "no load" i.e the belt has snapped or fallen off due to being perished.
Lift the platter to refit the belt and or replace it if required.

The cartridge arm does not go back to the off position.


it's a "manual" turntable so this is normal. You would need to buy an "automatic" turntable to have the arm return back when done.

Turntable wont spin


If everything seems ok with the power , there is usally a small microswitch that sends power to the motor when the tone arm is moved to the start of the record.
The switch might be bad or the lever that actuates it (connected to the tone arm) might be sticking. You may have to take the bottom cover off or remove the platter to see it.
Also make sure the belt is looped over the motor shaft. If the motor runs but the belt still doesnt turn, belt might be bad.

Technics sl 1210 will not start up


did you ever 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. let me know what happens afterwards.
