Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable

1 Answer

Turntable grinds to a halt.

I have a Technics turntable that I've owned from new since 1996. It's had very little use over the years. Now when using the turntable to copy vinyl to the computer, it has started grinding to a halt shortly after starting to play an album, & now will not start at all.
Any thoughts on what the problem may be & is it worth repairing ?

Thanks

The Technics SL-BD22 is a belt driven turntable. It is most likely possible that the belt wore off, wore down, or could have spun off. The platter should have 2 holes in it. One of them should alow you to see, and replace the belt. YOu can lift the platter off the turntable via those two holes. MAKE SURE IT IS TURNED OFF AND UNPLUGGED......

You can find a replacement @

And the part should come with instructions. Those guys are very thorough.

Keep me posted.

After 14 years my Technics SL-BD22 Turntable has a disfunction The electric motor turns slow.


Your turntable is probably belt driven so most likely motor is turning okay but belt is slipping.
They are easy to change, first just lift rubber mat on platter and you should be able to see the belt through a access hole in the platter.

I just purchases a Technics 1200 turntable for $70.00. I have found a problem, at the end of the album, the arm does not auto return, but just stays on the album. Could this be a simple problem,...


First off, Congratulations on such a excellent deal! That's a $500.00 turntable. I know I own a pair and I've been a DJ for 18 years.

Second, the Technics 1200 does not have an auto return. You have to pick up the needle and bring it back manually.

The low grinding noise could be the motor spinning with "no load" i.e the belt has snapped or fallen off due to being perished.
Lift the platter to refit the belt and or replace it if required.

Hi, could just be platter not fitted hard down on spindle. I suggest you remove the platter and place it upon a dead flat surface to check to see that the platter is flat. If it is flat refit to turntable ensuring it is hard down on the spindle. If bent discard and replace with new platter.Platters can be ordered for all model 1200/1210 from [email protected]

Yes you need a pre amp

It would also be the same if you connected it to a computer to record an LP to CD. Mine is a little different and has one already built in that I can switch in and out of line.

Try spend a little more if you can as many pre amps can introduce noise.

You may also want to check that the turntable is properly grounded to prevent noise too

All my vinyl sounds warped on turntable


Most common problem is the belt getting soft, especially if it has sat for a long time. It will get a weak spot where it sat on the drive pulley and every time the turntable goes around and hits that weak spot it will slow down a little making it sound like a warped album.

The belts are usually very easy to replace. Usually just lift off the turntable or there might be a small clip on the center pin, then it lifts off. Replacement belts can be ordered from several places, as shown in this search... http://www.google.com/search?&q=SL-B200+Technics+turntable+belt
