My brand new Technics 1200 MK2 sounds wobbly when I play it and the lights dim in and out...as if the power wasn't flowing evenly. this is the 2nd one I bought. The same issue happened with the 1st one so I took it back because I thought it was defective and purchased a new one from another store. same issue.

Try plugging it into a different power point. The problem is with the power supply fluctuating. You can eliminate that with a UPS, here is a link to wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uninterruptible_power_supply

My turntable won't play at 33rpms. tried the pitch adjustment with no success. my turntable is a Technics model#SL-35


First, I'm not a Technics tech.
* Normally I would suggest to check for warranty, but this unit is outdated.
* Try to contact ; https://www.technics.com/us/support/
*** The following is for information only.***
* The following vid shows the speed switch on the left. If it's not tracking then there may be a problem in the selector switch, sync tracking, or motor drive.
* You may want to check the "window" or sensor of the the speed sync light (the orange light). Wipe down the lamp and the peep hole where the sensor is located (on or near the lamp)
* Wipe down the outer edge of the turn table to clean the metal "dots" or "bars" on the rim. This is what the sensor reads to determine speed.
* Speed controls and direct drive turntable are not customer serviced parts (other than replacement of the component).

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]

Technics 1210 MK2 - unstable/uneven speed problem


Since this is a direct-drive turntable, it isn't a slipping or stretched belt. You will need a technician with a couple pieces of equipment and some experience/training to find the source of the problem. I suspect the part(s) will be the minor cost of the repair.

How old is my Technics SL 1210 Mk2


Here's some information for you. Since your unit is a SL1210MK2, it may be harder to determine the age of the unit:

It is possible to tell the year (and the month) when the SL-1200 was manufactured from the serial number on the back or bottom of the turntable. SL-1200 serial numbers are in two different formats, depending on the date of manufacture. It isn't exactly possible to determine the decade in which the SL-1200 in question was manufactured, as the serial number contains only the last digit of the year. If the year digit is 8, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1978, 1988 or 1998. If the year digit is 0, the turntable may have been manufactured in 1980, 1990 or 2000. One rule of thumb is that old-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1970s and 1980s, while new-format serial numbers belong to SL-1200s manufactured during the 1990s and beyond.
Old-format serial number: NHOJF20765 (SL-1200 manufactured 1982)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured. These serial numbers contain no indication of the month of manufacture. It should be noted that serial numbers in this format contain no letters following digits.
New-format serial number: GE4FB001154 (SL-1200 manufactured June 2004)
The first digit shows the year when the SL-1200 was manufactured, while the month of manufacture is indicated by the letter following it. Months are coded as letters between A and L inclusive; A indicates January, B indicates February, and so on.
In addition to the above, all the SL-1200MK2s from the 70's and early 80's have a 4 inch diameter plate where the RCA and ground wires enter the chassis in the rubber base of the unit. The later models have a smaller hole through which the wires enter the unit.
