Question about Technics SL-1200 Turntable

1 Answer

I have two Tehcnics 1200 turntables. On my right deck, the bass frequency range is cut out. It almost sounds as if a filter is on the turntable. I have switched inputs into my mixer, switched needles, and the problem still lies in the turntable itself. What is the problem with my right deck, why is it doing this?

At the back of your mixer you should have a switch to change the frequency for a turntable. Also make sure you have the turntable's earth (ground) wire connected.

Too much bass


I didn't know that a turntable had bass control on it. If it has why not turn the bass down? I think it is your receiver not the turntable

My technic sl 1200 is distorting. It is not the stylus or cartridge as i have swapped them and it still distorts. Any ideas?


Could be a couple of things. Could be the alignment, weighting, tracking or all of those causing this. It could be the gain structure on your mixer is not set and is too high. Maybe that the output of the cartridge is to high for standard mm inputs

Distorted sound on Technics SL-1200/1210


You could be getting acoustic feedback from the speakers to the TT's. Lower the volume or somehow isolate them from room sounds and vibrations.

Technics 1200, no sound out right speaker


And it will be. I can almost steak my life on it. Easy to replace. Most djs had to already. Most off us went to Radio Shack and bought the 6 foot gold RCA's and cut them in half for both decks. Its not that hard to do. Any problems message me.

One of my technics' 1200 turntable's tone gets too high


You can try adjusting the pitch's gain, which is located on the pitch control circuit board. Only problem is that you'll have to take apart your turntable in order to get to that section (its on the bottom).

If that does not work, your pitch might be bad, or one of the main circuit drive IC's might be bad.

Hope this helps some.

Turntable output level too low and plain compared to CD, etc.


Get an external pre-amp. They range in price from 25-100 and more, depending on the capabilities. All over Ebay, and electronics sites. That will fix your problem. Hope this helps

No sound out of deck


If you've already replaced the RCA /Phono cables, then the only other item that would cause this kind of problem is your tonearm, and it will need to be replaced.

Plugging a turntable into a harmankardon 147 receiver: where and how to get volume. The sound volume is too low.


The 147 receiver doesnt have an input for a turntable. THe output from a turntable is VERY low and is heavily equalized because of the actual record format ( the bass is cut way down and the highs are boosted.....when run through an actual phono input, it "un does" the equalization by boosting the bass and cutting the treble......this is called the RIAA compensation curve ).

You need wither a receiver with an actual phono input, or a good quality Phono Pre Amp....

Good luck... Rob

No signal from the Left output + Tinny sound


1. Assuming there is no problem with your amplifier of input cable, the headshell/tone-arm needs rewiring. This is very thin flexible wire and not easy to do, but can be done if you are careful.

2. Turntables require a special input on your amplifier which has a frequency response that is suitable for them. If you connect a turntable to an ordinary input, it will sound tinny. If you don't have a turntable input (known as a phono input [from phonograph]) you will need to use a preamplifier with your turntable.
