I own two Technics SL-1200mk5 turntables. My problem is that on one of them the platter has a wobble which makes the needle skip when I place a hand on the record/platter. What can be done to fix/correct this?

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]

Any of the Servisol products are suitable. They have lots of specialist products for tackling this kind of problem. You can get them from places such as Maplin (UK) or Radio Shack (USA). Also on-line at Amazon and E-Bay - just search for Servisol.

Technics SL-1200MK5 voltage or fuse problem


To change it from the 110 to 220 the switch is under the turntable platter. Put your fingers in the 2 holes under the slip matts and pull up evenly. It may be a little hard but it will come off. As for the fuse...its inside the deck. Unscrew the feet and all the screws. the black rubber part will come off. Good luck!

After mixing for a while the turntable (1200 technics mk5) starts to lose the pitch or the record starts jerking up near the -5 or -6.


hi! there is a problem inside your turntable (on the main board) check the components  TRANSISTOR    Q2, Q3,  ZENER DIODE   D3..

CHANGE IT IF POSSIBLE..

Computer not playing my technics table


More than likely the RCA cables need to be replaced. Torque, Serato, and all digital dj programs require a clear signal path coming from the source (turntable, cdj, etc). If it does not have a clear signal, or 1 side is louder than the other, it will not work.

You have to remember, these are analog turntables connecting to a digital system. The signal quality is different, and your RCA cables have to be prestine.

The following cables work very well for this type of configuration:
