Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a technics 1200 mk2 turntable. It turns on properly, and appears to work, but when I place the needle on the record, I get nothing through the speakers. I don't know if the connection is being made where the cartridge/head shell plugs into the tone arm. It appears the RCA cables were changed before I bought it. I can't SEE anything that would lead me to say what the potential issue is. I know nothing of the technical aspects of the turtable, so I am at a loss...

Turntable signal problems are difficult to locate because of the extremely low signal levels. Are you sure that you have the output of the turntable connected to a Phono input? If connected to a standard AUX or Tape input, you won't hear anything. Check for signal by turning on the unit and touching lightly the needle. You should hear a scratching sound. If not, start with a new needle.

Keep us posted.

There should be a "C" clip on the center post that holds the record in the middle. Pop that off and gently wiggle table up. Careful not to over stretch the belt. There could be a cover over the clip.

Need a needle for a TECHNIC SL-3350


It's 'TechnicS' and 'stylus'. Wouldn't a web search have been faster?

"TECHNIC SL-3350 stylus"

But even 'technic" and 'needle' would have worked.

I have just fitted a Technics SL BD20 Turntable to my new Panasonic SA-AKX50 system. I can't get much volume out of it when playing a record on the turntable. I have a black wire coming out of the back...


Does your NEW Panasonic SA-AKX50 have an input label "PHONO"? If not, it can't PRE-amplify and RIAA-equalize the tiny voltage signal produced by the phono cartridge.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it and old-school turntables would require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

If your unit doesn't have a PHONO connection you will have to get a Phono Preamp to connect between the TT and any Line Level input, like Aux.

your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

Pioneer PL-670 record rejects continually


Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.

Hi, I have recently purchased a pair of technics 1200 mk2 turntables. One works fine but the other skips, even though I have tried adjusting the height of the arm and adjusting balance etc, no combination...


there may be a weight missing on the arm , look at the other one to see the parts on that arm and make sure they are exactly the same nothing missing , otherwise there may be something wrong with the armitures guide
try tape on a penny then put it on top of the arm and see if it still skips

Technics 1200 turntable - no power Musical Fidelity AMP - no power


Technics 1200 - if the mains cord connectors and fuses are ok - it could be the power switch - when you rotate the switch do any lights come on? If it is just no rotation of the turntable platter then it could be the motor controller IC.

There is an internal regulator - often the associated zener and transistor fail.

Please rate this as a genuine cure - I know these inside out and with a bit more information I can give you a solution.
