Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable

3 Answers

Sudden pitch change.

During my sets I seem to be experiencing what seems like slight shift changing. For ex: I can find and match the beats at the beginning of my tracks, but towards the end I find that the beats are off and I have to re-match. I don't know if it could be the way the record was made or if it could be a turntable problem. My turntables are no more than a year old. I have a little over six years djing experience so I know how to find and match my beats. What do you think?

My speed change problem was caused by lots of dust and hair accumulating under the rim of the platter. Remove and clean the platter 'ditch'.

Some records that have centre hole too large can cause drift if record loose when placed on platter try small bit of paper between hole and spindle centre shaft ,if no drift then you know your deck isnt needing repaired ;)

There is a speed control IC inside this unit that could be defective or the speed detect sensors could be faulty. WIthout seeing the actual machine it is hard to tell. This one is a direct drive if memory serves me correctly, so you should not have this kind of drift. With the unit only a year old, I would not expect a motor problem either. Can you tell if the drift is toward higher speed or lower? Or does it vary?

Selectric II Pitch-shift lever won't change from 12 tom 10


If you haven't changed the pitch for a long time the lubricants dry up, if you have some WD40 spray it in the slot inthe margin bar where the L. & R. margin levers ride. Give it a few minites to work.

Sync problem with denon dns3000


I'm having a similar problem with my denon dp-300f. It seems to *ever so slightly* increase or decrease in speed (and therefore pitch)...I might not even notice it very often if I wasn't listening to my favorites. I have not found a solution to this problem, but my hunch is related to the power source. Meaning: I think the voltage output by my apartment is slightly sagging (<120V, AC ~60Hz...which most appliances can deal with) and this affects the speed of the motor that drives the belt. I'm looking into isolating this factor. I'll let you know.

Booting up windows, now receiving "HID DATA has stopped working" msg respond "check online and close program" message box goes away and laptop seems to work fine anything to worry about? OS: windows...


Hi. HiD Data is basically a control driver base located in the system 32 file bank. these drivers control mouse, game controllers and keyboard functions as well. Usually when this message box comes up, it is signaling a sudden change that may have occurred during a failed boot session or, sudden changes in the windows system 32 file base. these sudden changes can happen when there is a windows update that isn't quite compatible with the current version of one or more of the HID driver components or, if the OS has experienced a virus hit or , malware.

This may not be an issue at this time but, if the message box frequency level increases, i would recommend reinstalling the OS by using the repair option or, the restore feature.

Guzzi sometimes won't go into neutral


Sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. But start with a oil and oil filter change. Dirt and grit in the oil can cause the same problem. If the problem gets worst you will need to replace the bad fork. This is a very involved project and bets done in the shop.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Fran :)

1997 Honda Civic EX power loss


start with the easy stuff. check the plugs. make sure they are not wet with oil leaking from the spark plug stem seals located on the rocker cover. Check your air filter to make sure its clean. Now for the slightly harder stuff. The spark plug wires should be changed every 80k or so. My suspect the reason for the power loss is most likely a clogged cat convert in the exhaust system. check your exhaust flow. Way to do that is to check the temp. of the exhaust before the cat and the temp. after the cat. If the Cat is plugged the temp before the catalytic converter will be abnormally higher than after the cat.

BUT if you are experiencing misfire of engine. I would go straight to replacing spark plugs and wires. Distributor cap and rotor.

Also check the charging system. make sure the alternator is charging the battery at above 13Volts. With all components on. ( radio/lights/highbeam/AC). Use a voltmeter and check at the battery positive and negative. if its not charging above 13 V replace the alternator.

good luck
