Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
Everytime i put new internal fuse in it will play untill i touch or scatch the record then the fuse blows change styleses and earth still the same please help thanks
You have a short somewhere on your main PC board that is causing this. You will have to take it to a qualified service professional for testing.
There is no 'motor' per say on this model. It is direct drive, so there is no moving parts. A drive coil rotates the magnet that is located under the metal platter. This in turns causes the platter to rotate. You can stop the platter, and nothing will happen to the drive system. It's basically just not going to turn. There is no resistance occurring, which is the beauty of these turntables, and which is why DJ's prefer them to other models on the market - especially the Turntablist community.
More than likely there is something on the main PC board that is causing a short, blowing out the fuse. Look at R213 - see if there is a discoloration around it, also take a look at Q2 and Q3.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, then don't try to figure it out. Take it to a service center.
