Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
Had my 1210s a few months, my problem is the light that comes on green when you put the pitch adjustment knob to 0. Is always on. The light does get a bit stronger tho, when on 0. does not seem to cause problems with the pitch when mixing, i have done a full pitch test.Looked everywhere for a solution. please please help. peace Dj Nyce
I have decided to replace both pitch adjusters on my Technics because they are both more than 15 yrs old. should solve the problem..
next..... the tonearms...

Did you buy this turntable used? If so, more than likely the previous owner replaced the pitch control and either connected it incorrectly, or used a pitch control off of a MK3 or MK5 turntable. If you bought this new, and you have been the only owner, the problem could be as TTECH described, either a voltage issue where you have it set up, or needs to be cleaned out. However, if neither of those are your issues, then it's time to get it professionally checked by a service tech. The pitch control is more than likely faulty, and will need to be replaced, but that wouldn't cause the constant LED light from being on. That is usually caused by a bad capacitor or resistor - i would be it's a capacitor that isn't discharging correctly. So, this is where a service tech would come in handy. Sometimes the Pop-up light causes these types of issues. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix. If it's not causing you too much trouble, you can always leave it the way it is. - Justin
