Unplug your turntables.

The first thing to do is compressed air. A can of compressed air can be purchased at any hardware store. Blow out each fader (the sliding part of the platter) to the best of your ability. The dust in this fader is causing the nasty noise.

Next, you need to get a can of Contact Cleaner. The best stuff to buy is called "DeOxit". Amazon carries it. Place the red straw onto the spray nozzle, and work the nozzle in between the dust guards where the metal shaft comes out of the fader (the knob of the fader attaches to the metal shaft) and spray the DeOxit. Once sprayed, work the fader back and forth rapidly 10-15 times, across its full range of motion. Let the DeOxit dry (5 minutes) and do it again. Do this for both tables, and the faders will be cleaned of the dust contaminate.

If this problem comes back, the faders may need to be replaced.

Is it bad for the motor to test a technics sl 1200 off load with the platter removed?


No. Motors simply turn. It's when you make them work harder by putting loads on when the problems start.

Hi, could just be platter not fitted hard down on spindle. I suggest you remove the platter and place it upon a dead flat surface to check to see that the platter is flat. If it is flat refit to turntable ensuring it is hard down on the spindle. If bent discard and replace with new platter.Platters can be ordered for all model 1200/1210 from styluscity@gmail.com

You will need to check your belt for wear. Lift felt on platter and check belt tension. It may need replacing. To replace, simply lift platter section of the unit, taking note of the belt position. replace and your problem will be solved

Technics DZ 1200 not working - blue screen and just spins!


Sounds like something shorted out. Possible an IC (integrated circuit) or resistor. Unfortunately, not easy to diagnose. You'll have to take it to an authorized service center for repair.

1200 platter drag


the platter should have two holes on it,my 1210 does. put your thumb on the spindle and a finger in each hole and prize the platter off. theres no screws holding the platter on just a tapered spindle shaft. it is quite heavy so a good pull will do it. as for the scraping it might be as simple as packaging placed under the platter to secure it for shipping, technics are built really well so i cant imagine it could be anything major. i hope this helps you out, if you need any more help let us know. please also let us know how you get on. darren
