I recently installed two pop lights and two tone arms on a set of technics 1210s. Use technics replacement parts. Everything works fine except for one of the pop lights. when i press the start/stop button the pop up light goes faint. Also when i slow down or speed up the platter with my hand it also goes faint. i have tried changing the wires coming from the bulb around. but there is no change. I have also checked my soldering to make sure their are no problems with any of the connections.

May i ask which lights you mean, also the pitch? And does after that everything works fine?... then i don't see a problem to be honest. But i'll check my mk5(refurbished really everything only i'm busy with the tone arm wire rewiring, so i can't move it.But now is the time to replace your capacitors for better then standard ones, if you see how old they are and replacing the potentiometres and main wires etc. almost 15 years old. The so calles refurbushing by the often one person stores is a waste of monet, just do it yourself.
Greetings richard and i'll come back on the subject, when the table is ready.
I got it partially fixed. The black wire from the tone arm was broken so that been solder back on place nd the rca also the song is playing foward on channel 1 only, thats a start! New problem accuring now! Can't use that table to scarch now caus every time i do so the song goes foward only??? No back and forth in the sound??? I'll get a new tone arm and it should get everything better!
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.
For Technics parts, check www.1200s.com, for a service center in your area, check the Panasonic web site (parent company of Technics): http://www.panasonic.co.uk/customer-Support/svc-dealer-locator.asp
As for instructions on doing this, it's not an easy fix. You have to solder 5 very thin (as thin as dental floss) to a circuit board, and they don't leave much room for error. Oh, and the circuit board is discontinued, so if you damage the board due to self-repair, you can't have it replaced. So, thing twice before attempting this repair yourself.
Hope this helps!
