Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable

1 Answer

It's an SL-B202

The belt stretched. We ordered another. Looks right, but it's too large. Is there a trick or was I sent the wrong belt? The guy in my office who knows this stuff best is at Navy Reserve for two weeks.

The belt wraps around the bottom of the metal turntable platter. Put the platter back on, then rotate the platter so that you can see the motor. Pinch the belt around the motor, and that's it. If it's too big, then the belt you ordered is too big. You have to get the correct size. Not just any size belt will work. If it doesn't fit, you'll have playing issues, and you'll wear out your motor, records, and styli very quickly.

From your description it sounds like the motor is the issue, it probably needs to be taken apart and cleaned and re-lubricated with phono oil if it still available. It is possible that time will improve the performance, but you probably should replace the turntable belt especially when it has been sitting for a long time without use.

Turntable turns on, but it when i press play the plate doesnt spin. i noticed it budges like a mm but definetly not working


Turntable Drive Belt


The chances are the rubber drive belt has either broken or stretched so that it has fallen off the drive pulleys.


You will need to gain access to the underside of the turntable to replace it.


With most turntables the process will be to secure the tone arm (a rubber band will do the trick) before turning the whole thing upside down and unscrewing the base.


Replacement drive belts are easily available on the internet. Search by make and model number of your turntable

I have not used it in a long time seems like the speed is wrong when i put it on 33/1/3 plays slow when i put on 45 it much better playing the 33


Good day. It sounds to me like the belt is worn. Under the felt of the turning section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

Looks like the rubber band came off


if it is black and fairly long it's probably the drive belt and it has likely become stretched (or sticky).The belt fits on the inner circumference of the platter- to re-install - remove the rubber platter cover and platter
-stretch the belt around the inner (botom side inner) lip of the platter
- you should see the motor facing up with a brass capstan or drive bobbin
-from the top side of the platter stretch the belt slightly off the platter through the openings provided and while re-installing the platter loop the belt over the motor bobbin.
If the belt flops off the inner platter it's to stretched and a replacement would have to be ordered

Unfortunately, it does sound like a drive issue. Just so you know, these units are direct drive, so there is no physical motor. It's just a bunch of various circuits which drive the unit, and if any one of them go bad, it will affect your turntable speed. You will need to have this looked at by a service technician to determine which circuit is faulty.
