Technics SL-1700 Mk2, tonearm doesn't lower, cueing doesn't work

Hi, I own a Technics SL-1700 Mk2 and the tonearm doesn't come down anymore. When I press the cueing-button a purring sound starts, that doesn't stop if I push the button again.The cueing mechanism is not responding. How to proceed? Can you override the mechanism or is there something seriously wrong? Thx in advance for help!

There's a rubber belt or O ring that broke. I couldn't find one at Technics, so I took the old parts to the hardware store and found an O ring in plumbing parts that was very close. Been working for years just fine!

Tonearm doesn't automatically return technics sl-d 202


Hi, at the base of the tonearm (left side) you will will find a rubber grommet or hole. Insert flat blade screw driver. Adjust until tonearm is lifting at end of record. Cheers john.

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

Technics SL 1600 MK2


Your tonearm is damaged. More than likely the bearings on the tonearm have been damaged. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix for this. You'll have to have the tonearm replaced, however, parts for the SL1600MK2 have been discontinued. The tonearm for the SL1200MK2 might fit it, but you will need to do some retro-fitting in order to make it work properly. Something only a qualified service center could perform.

Hope this helps some.

Good luck!

Tecnics 1200 MK2 No sound.


It's more than likely your tonearm or your RCA cables. Does the sound come in at all? Try wiggling the RCA cables. If no sound whatsoever, then more than likely it's your tonearm, and will need to be replaced.

Tonearms for this model are available HERE, however, I don't recommend trying to replace this yourself, as it is rather complicated, and you could cause more damage to the unit.
