SOURCE: technics 1210 mk2 problem with pitch and lights

Check that your voltage settings are set correctly. This is located underneath your turntable platter. If you remove the slipmat, you will see 2 holes on the metal platter. Rotate the platter till you see the voltage switch, located @ the 9'o'clock position. Make sure it's set to your correct settings (N.America = 115V / Euro = 220V). If not, you will need a flat head screw driver to switch it. Before you switch it, make sure your unit is off and unplugged. After you swich it, it should be ok.

If your still having issues with the speed and the pop-up light, then there is something seriously wrong, and will need to be checked by a technician. Sometimes a resistor or IC will go bad, causing the speed issue, but for the pop-up light - that's usually faulty wiring generally caused by an incorrect replacement.

Did you buy this new or used? Have you had this serviced recently?

SOURCE: How old is my Technics SL 1210 Mk2

Here's some information for you. Since your unit is a SL1210MK2, it may be harder to determine the age of the unit:

It is possible to tell the year (and the month) when the SL-1200 was manufactured from the serial number on the back or bottom of the turntable. SL-1200 serial numbers are in two different formats, depending on the date of manufacture. It isn't exactly possible to determine the decade in which the SL-1200 in question was manufactured, as the serial number contains only the last digit of the year. If the year digit is 8, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1978, 1988 or 1998. If the year digit is 0, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1980, 1990 or 2000. One rule of thumb is that old-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1970s and 1980s, while new-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1990s and beyond.
Old-format serial number: NHOJF20765 (SL-1200 manufactured 1982)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured. These serial numbers contain no indication of the month of manufacture. It should be noted that serial numbers in this format contain no letters following digits.
New-format serial number: GE4FB001154 (SL-1200 manufactured June 2004)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured, while the month of manufacture is indicated by the letter following it. Months are coded as letters between A and L inclusive; A indicates January, B indicates February, and so on.
In addition to the above, all the SL-1200MK2s from the 70's and early 80's have a 4 inch diameter plate where the RCA and ground wires enter the chassis in the rubber base of the unit. The later models have a smaller hole through which the wires enter the unit.

Check to make sure you have a nice solid connection on your tonearm from your cartridge. The problem is either your tonearm or your RCA (red/white) cables.

Neither are easy repairs, unless you have soldering skills/experience. The tonearm replacement is the more difficult and more costly of the two.

Parts for the unit can be purchased HERE. If you have any questions about testing your unit on the exact cause, please feel free to give our TECHS a call - they are available 24/7 for your convenience @ 1.866.668.1596 ext 1

SOURCE: technics sl 1210 will not start up

did you ever open the turntable. It sounds like the on/off switch is bad. Remove the platter and screws with a phillips screw driver and just make sure the connections are in place. make sure you disconnect the power first. let me know what happens afterwards.

SOURCE: Technics 1210 MK2 - unstable/uneven speed problem

Since this is a direct-drive turntable, it isn't a slipping or stretched belt. You will need a technician with a couple pieces of equipment and some experience/training to find the source of the problem. I suspect the part(s) will be the minor cost of the repair.

BUZZING NOISE


Is this noise a motor buzzing noise? If motor has power but the start circuit is not energized, then the power through the run winding cannot start the motor and may make a buzzing. Need to address the type of buzzing and if the motor, then check motor circuit.

Danfoss 103 timer is making a constant buzzing noise!!...everything's works fine but I want to stop this buzzing noise. Any actions I should take or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.


How much wattage is going through the timer and what is its rated load max? try unplugging whatever is plugged into it and see if it stops but if you exceeded the max load might be damage to the internals which can cause that buzz.

Buzz noise behind dashboard 2001 GS300 LEXUS


The buzz noise is probably coming from the airflow controls turned off but being stuck in a particular mode such as vents and feet mode or winshield and feet mode, creating a buzzing noise while it is turned off. To stop the buzzing noise turn off the aircondition / heat by pressing the off button, next press the mode button for the fan controls to make the picture point to face only not feet or winshield, this should stop the noise.
