One of my turntables target light was pulsing, so STUPID me did what I read on someones comment that the voltage should be switched to 110 V instead of 220V. DON'T EVER TRY THIS !!! after that switch all i heard when powered was a BOOM. I thought that the whole tt was dead. Fortunately only one fuse was burned so I had it replaced and the turntable is fine now.
I was so close to ruin the transformer.
IF YOU ARE NOT SURE WHAT YOU'RE UP TO PLEASE ASK FOR A PROFESSIONAL OPINION !

Cheers !

Power problem, CDJ wont turn on propperly as it is from the US and i live in Birmingham UK


The step down adapter should work fine as long it supplies the voltage and any other ratings shown on the turntable power supply indication pannel. However the problem might already have happened. If the fuses were before the power entered the mains transformer of the unit, then if they were set to blow above the USA voltage then things could be OK. However if the the fuses were in the secondary output from the transformer then the mains will have caused possible damage to the transformer. Maybe even elsewhere.

Hello i need some help,i have pioneer 800 mk2 cdj i buy from usa but im live in london so difirent pawer supply here i bought the converter but try connect and its not showing nothing maybe the problem...


You can have a fuse problem only in you plug it diectly to 240V, the UK voltage. Check that the converter is a step down transformer, 240 to 110 volts. The system should work with 110Volts. If everything is ok, then you blew the system´s powersupply with the 240Volts. that is difficult to solve.

Me technic 1210s wont *** on ive tryed change in the fuses wiv 1 from tv an still nothing any ideas?


It could have got an internal fuse, not the one in the plug. Also the power switch might have broken. There's only one way to find out! Take the bottom off and have a look.

No power when i turn on my mk3 turntable


Check the internal fuses. There are two. You have to strip the unit down to get to them.

This video will show you what's involved:

Deck does not play/turn on


Problem is not the fuses, but the power supply / power transformer has blown. This is why you should always wrap exposed wiring with electrical tape or heatshrink tubing.

The power supply can be purchased HERE, but this is not an easy replacement. And if you blew it by not properly replacing the Pop-up light, than I DON'T suggest you try to replace the power supply on your own either. You could really cause even more damage, and possible harm to yourself and your property.

No power


With a voltage meter, open the table back up to where the fuse is under the on off switch. With the table plugged check the voltage meter check the incoming ac prongs for 20V. Also, the 1210 has a voltage switch under the platter to the left
 a little hole for which a flat head screwdriver is needed to switch the voltage. If you live in the UK or outside od the USA it should be on 220V, IF YOU LIVE IN THE USA, IT SHOULD BE ON 110V. If your electricity is 110/120 and its on 220, the transformer is most likely fried. If your electricity is 220V and its set to 110V , then its not getting enough current. Its possible the transformer could have gone bad, with no smell of burn or sign of damage. Also, check board with all the capacitors on it around the motor, check fopr any leakage...


If service Technics for 15 years and sometimes i'll se voltage issues I've never seen before.....

Blown Fuse


The fuses for this model are located underneath the turntable platter. You can replace this yourself, however, please be sure to disconnect the unit from it's power source before proceeding. You will have to remove the metal turntable platter, exposing a black protective cover. Remove the cover, and you'll see the main PC Board. There are 2 fuses on the lower left side. Pull the fuses and take them to your local electronics store, or order online @ www.1200s.com. IF your unit does NOT have any fuses, then your transformer is damaged, and will need to be replaced by a qualified technician. Also, the fuses are only meant to circumvent small changes in electrical current. Many times, these voltage surges, will fry the fuses and the transformer. So if after you replace the fuses, it still doesn't power up, you will need to also have the transformer replaced. Good Luck!

Your power transformer blew. The fuses in these models don't offer much protection, when it comes to more serious power surges. And the only other thing that would be blown is the transformer - a common issue. You can purchase parts for this model HERE, however, I do not suggest replacing this part yourself, as it is a little tricky, and you may damage your unit ever more, if not done properly.
