Question about Technics SL-1200M3D Turntable

1 Answer

The Power switch on to of the strobe is pushed all the way in, if I take the black power on/off button off, and push with a screwdriver, the turntable works. Any idea how to fix problem, do I need to replace the whole assembly or partial replacement? Do you know where to find cheap Technics replacement parts anywhere in the world, any website leads?. Thank you!

Replacement parts can be tough... Open the unit and you will likely find the switch itself has been pushed in too far... POSSIBLY bending a bracket it is mounted on OR sometimes pushing it out of some plastic tabs... If the tabs have been broken, then one uses an appropriate adhesive to hold the switch where it belongs... Use either a contact cement or silicone adhesive.

    The whole strobe light pushes in, any particular brand of contact cement or silicone adhesive?

  • Fred Yearian Mar 12, 2011

    The first thing to do is to observe what is supposed to hold the switch in position. Depending on how it is held will depend on the adhesive to use. One that can work pretty well and still be so that it can be removed if necessary is "3M weatherstrip" which is usually found in the automotive section of stores. It comes in a redish box and tube and is yellow. I use it to secure various things. It is intended as a contact cement, but if you goop up something and let it dry, it forms a pretty good bond. So many of the things these days are "snap together" depending on plastic tabs and those can break off that repairs can be dificult. Please note that SUPER GLUE and things like Elmer;s do not bond well to the usual plastics and are not suitable in spite of what the label on them says. The Silicone things like bathtub sealer can often be used but they DO have springiness and you have to evaluate the use based on that.

    You definelty have to open the unit and see how the button is supposed to be secured. Sometimes there is a bracket that is held by small Kaylon screws into plastic "bosses" that tend to break away. If you have to restore a boss, build up around it with a FILLED epoxy two part such as JB Weld using a generous amount. Let harden a full day.

    How's the best way to take turntable apart, any suggestions? I don't want to mess them up.

  • Fred Yearian Mar 13, 2011

    He is a link to the service manual fo the unit:
    http://elektrotanya.com/technics_sl-1200...

    Click on the brownish button with the down arrow in it to download. I can see the power switch but the photos are not clear enough to see how iit is restrained. Anyway, the service manual shows the disassembly procedure.

  • Tone Loc Mar 13, 2011

    I cannot find the brownish button with the down arrow.

  • Fred Yearian Mar 14, 2011

    The button is in the upper left corner under something like "Google Hidresek" or something like this. This is a Hungarian site... Come to think of it if you are not signed up with them the screen might look different... Find "download" in brownish lettering... Mine automatically logs me in and the screen if you are not registered with them might look a little different... If you ar not registered, they only let you download TWO files a day... I don't know how to force my machine out to the non registered screen... I think they have a notice about the two file limit on the screen... The file is too big About 21MB or I could send it email to you. Keep looking at that link and if you can't get the file let me know.

  • Fred Yearian Mar 14, 2011

    OK, from the link I gave you when you are not registered you need to call for the download as the brownish button is NOT displayed. Instead, SCROLL down the page and look for the words "GET MANUAL". There will be a note beside it saying only two downloads per day allowed. This file 20;6MB/

    I did not realize the page is displayed differently...

Lately, my vacuum will only turn on when the accessory hose is hooked up. If I have the carpet brush attachment in place, the power will not turn on. I noticed that there are 2 switches that need to be...


It is most likely the switch. To be certain, hold the lower switch button on the front in with a small screwdriver and push the switch. BE SURE to push the button in first, and then the switch. If the motor doesn't start, you need a new switch assembly.

The power button is gone so there is no way to turn it on. is there anyway i can turn it on with the button?


You could try using a small screwdriver pushing straight in thru the hole where the power button was. If that doesn't work, put screwdriver in hole then push down on it. The switch inside the TV could be just inside the hole or up to an inch or so inside. To prevent electric short, wrap tape around screwdriver.
If that doesn't work, unplug the TV and take the back off, slide the circuit board out far enough to see how the power switch works then go from there. The actual switch is soldered to the circuit board. The power button is only a piece of plastic that actuates the switch.

Dryer electric when i push the start button nothing happpens


Make sure you have 220 Volts of power at outlet, check circuit breakers. Then, with dryer door open, look for door switch actuator on door. It may be broken. Use flat screwdriver to manually push door switch in, then push start.

On/off switch is faulty


I just fixed my Dyson DC17 last night with this same problem. You will need a T-15 Torx screwdriver and (optionally - this just makes part of it easier) a small flathead screwdriver.

Pull the extension hose out to expose the area behind the power switch. There will be 2 small screws there. Unscrew them with the Torx screwdriver. Next there are 4 plastic tabs that need to be pushed in (this is where the flathead is helpful, but I was able to do them with just my fingers). When you push the tabs in, you can remove the switch cover from the front. (I also removed the dust collection container) You should see two small black boxes with a small reddish-colored switch on top - these are the switches. One is for turning the brush on/off (on the left, as you face it) and the other is power (on the right). Slide the black box for the power switch out of it's position. This may not be everyone's problem, but my switch apparently had something inside it that was stuck. As it is opaque and had no obvious way to open it, I can't say exactly what was wrong. I just flicked it a few times with my finger until the switch on top popped up. After that, when I pressed it down, it clicked into place. Pressing it again made it click out of the held position. Put everything back together and you should be good to go.

Power cord broken inside s251i miele How do i open the s251i ????


HOW TO OPEN MIELE 251 VACCUUM: 1-Unplug from wall and disconnect power cord 2-Remove black switch panel at back of top panel: A-Use Phillips screwdriver, remove two silver screws visible between back of hinged top door and front of black switch panel
B-Push back of the panel down while pushing it forward (towards front of machine). There are two plastic notches and clips which are tightly fit together that you need to separate.
Once it releases, push it a bit more towards the front of the machine and lift off panel. It has wires connecting it to the main body so it will not remove completely.
C-Be careful not to lose the springs that simply sit inside of two plastic channels, one under each of the two switches. These are required for your witches to operate properly.
3-Locate screw at bottom of deep rectangular hole now revealed (under former location of black switch panels). Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 4-Open hinged top panel. Locate two silver screws, one on each side of main housing. Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 5-This will let you lift off the whole top assembly, door and main housing, revealing the plastic chassis and the motor unit within.
You now have access to the motor, wiring connector harnesses, circuit board and the cord reel.

Power lead


The Switch is non-powered except by the board.
Black should go to power or + side

It's like a wall switch for the light (power comes in on one side and out on the other) If it were a push in to a detent (like the Old 386's and 486's with AT power supply) to connect and a push in to release the detent it would make a difference. With these power buttons on the cases now, it doesn't.

Kyocera - Strobe


Open your phone to the qwerty keypad. In the righthand corner above and between the speaker and power/clear buttons, there should be a whiteish little button. Is anything obstructing it? Try pressing it gently a few times with a small phillips screwdriver or a ball-point pen top. GENTLY being the keyword! When you push that down, your outer screen should be lit up, and when you release it, it should light up the inside screen. Note that when your inside screen is lit, that your outer screen should light up blue-black-purple, and vice-versa.

If there is no obstruction that can be easily removed or fixed, I reccomend returning it to the retailer/company for a refund or new phone.

As a strobe owner, I understand your frustration. Worst phone I've had so far.
