Question about Technics SL-1200 Turntable
My son just brought a Technics SL1200 turntable and the braking was not working right so i opened up the TT and adjusted the braking pot (VR201) to the right, but when i push the start/stop switch the TT would not stop, it would slow down but not completely stop, what else could i do to make it stop?
Well, does the platter spin at a constant speed (33 or 45 rpm), or does it spin super fast? If it spins at a constant speed, and it just wont stop, replacing that pot should do the trick (VR201 can be purchased HERE). You can attempt to replace it yourself (soldering skills are required), or just buy the part, and have a service tech replace it for you.
If it does not solve the problem, then the issue is with one of the IC's (integrated circuits). This is a more complex diagnosis and repair. But try replacing VR201 first, then taking it from there.
