SOURCE: purchased technics sl-bd20d what else do i need just to play records ?

well the mixer is optimal way if you are planning to buy another one sometime but if you are to have only one then you need a corrector which changes the signal (preamp)
just ask for a corrector and say your problem in any tech-shop they will help you..

Usually the damping fluid is to let the tone arm lower slowly, lifting is usually a mechanical link. Read THIS.

Hope that helps...

SOURCE: How to connect turntable Technics

Most recievers should have Phono Jacks labled on the back. That is where my Turntable an (MCS made by Technics but was sold under the J. C. Penneys name) connects on my JVC. I have 2 JVC 's One is old (1972) and one is new. Both of them have Phono jacks. Phono stands for Phonograph. This is an old term for turntables. The jacks should accept RCA patch cords. Good luck.

Technics sl-b35 shut off not working. What should I look at? Record play, arm returns, but will not shut off.

This could be a mechanical switch that is stuck in play mode. You might have to take the bottom off the deck to see what is happening inside.

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....

My turn table is going to fast when i play an record , what can i do to fix this? thanks

Hello the turn table has two speeds. 45rpm and 33rpm (rotations per minute) If you are playing a record that takes up the entire turntable you need to set it on 33rpm. For the records that only take up half of the turntable you want to set it on 45rpm. Setting the turntable on the wrong setting for a certain size record can make the record play to fast of to slow.

Technics SL-L3 turntable no sound until warm up

either the cartridge is bad in the phonograph tone arm.  Or the pre-amp in the stereo is bad...remember that the turntable is the only accessory that uses the pre-amp input on the stereo.  I'm betting the pre-amp is bad.

Techics sl-1210s m3 turntable spins back on itself

You have a fault on the quartz-lock speed control electronics. It may be a simple fix, it may be not.

It will require specialist investigation. A Technics dealer should be able to advise you, and arrange shipping back to Technics for repair if you decide that is the best thing to do.

You need a belt.. Lift up the record support..(platter) Underneath you will see a metal post.. Belt goes around that and the bottom of the plate.(there is a rim) . If the belt is there, motor might be bad..
