Question about Technics SL-1200 Turntable
need to know if it powers up. Does it try to spin, do you hear it trying to spin? More than likely the on/off switch went bad. No, I am not referring to the ON/OFF knob. THere is a switch this engages when turned. The part is S601. You might also want to replace the Start/Stop switch as well. If neither work, then the issue is on the main PC board, and probably IC101, or IC201 with the problem. At this stage, you will have to have a service tech look at your unit.

The part is located HERE - but you will have to take apart your turntable from the bottom in order to replace it. It's not very hard, but if your not mechanically inclined, I would not suggest doing it, as you could cause more damage.

On the 1200MK2 the pitch control slider is for just that purpose. Disregard the 0 setting and use the illuminated strobe marks on the platter to adjust to nominal speed. When they appear to be motionless you are there. The control on the 1210 may be a knob but the same principles apply.

1, The regulator circuit has failed, usually transistors Q2, Q3 and zener diode D3.
2, The drive I.C (I.C101 / AN6675) has failed, this can be natural failure but also can happen if the deck is turned on and started with the platter removed.
