Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable

1 Answer

Turntable power seems to be lightly surging

The light under the on/off switch is blinking slightly when the table is turned on. I can hear how the sound of the record is being affected at the same time the light blinks. I have a CD tuntable hooked up to the same power source and that is working fine. What could be causing that power to be surging like that? The table is brand new out of the box 3 days ago. Thanks in advance!

Just bought an Anders all in one player. The 33 1/3 speed is slightly slower. Cannot seem to get it to run correctly. any ideas?


If it is a fairly cheap unit there may not be an area where you can adjust the speed of the turn table
on better machines there is a variable rheostat where by you can adjust turntable speed
quality machines will have the edge if the turntable marked with what looks like bars
This is not decoration but when viewed under a light bulb will appear as stationary bars when running at the correct speed or as a blur when at the incorrect speed
It works like this
the bars are in effect a strobe that is affected by the light frequency or power hz so that when the strobe affect is exact the bars appear stationary
( like disco strobe )
so if your player has these bars on the edge , then check the actual speed with a bulb light Remember stopped bars is exact speed
If the turntable doesn't have these bars then most good home entertainment shops will have a paper plate that can be put on the turn table and the effect will be the same
other than that talk with a good radio repairer shop and have the variable control installed in the power circuit for the turntable motor .

Why does Panasonic nn-sn651 usually work; but sometimes, turntable won't start ?


This is an inverter model so there is no diode or hv capacitor.
You must adt. the door latch switch assembly to make sure that the door hooks make contact with the switches. Common problem is that the assembly is bent and must be perpendicular to the door.If it is bent the switch will not make contact with the door hooks.
Place a dab of lithium grease on the tip of the door hooks to ease closing the door. This is the cause of the bent switch assembly!

Microwave seems to run, but won't heat.


We have a similar problem! It sounds like a problem with the microswitch inside the unit that the door is suppose to engage when closed. If not engaged properly, it will not cook. We had the switch replaced last March but it has started acting up again. We can press in on the door and/or lift it slightly and it will cook. Try putting time on the counter and hit start. It the word "cook" appears then try moving the door slightly and see if the turntable starts turning. If not, then you may have a more serious problem. Good luck!

Replaced the lamp, still wont come on.


1- Did you make sure you have the lamp door on correctly, there's a safety switch that activates and wont let the lamp light for your protection.
2- Put your ear close to the lamp door and listen for a slight hum as soon as you turn it on, it will go in cycles. If you don't, it's going to be the ballast module or the color wheel, both these have to be working to let the lamp light. I suggest you call a service center after that, that's the best thing.

Nothing happen when pressing the Start/Stop button.


One ov my decks (same Gemini PT-1000 II) had the same problem. Just open it and clean the micro switches underneath the big buttons. It worked fine for me.

Turntable Issues


Check to make sure that your voltage setting is set correctly. Look under the turntable platter. You'll see a voltage selector. Make sure it's properly set for your area (115V or 220V).

If this does not solve the problem, or you have a turntable that does not have the voltage setting feature, then you might have a faulty turntable drive issue or an issue with the power, which means something is wrong on the main board (located underneath the turntable platter).

Power Issues or Drive Issues??


First and foremost, check to see that your turntable is set to the correct voltage setting for your area.

Remove your slipmat, as well as any rubber mat you might have on the unit. You want to expose the metal turntable platter. On the platter you'll see 2 holes on opposite ends. Rotate the platter to the 9 o'clock position. You'll see a voltage switch - 115V / 220V - make sure it's set to your country's setting:

U.S. / Japan / Canada: 110-115V
EUROPE: 220V

IF, you do not see this option on your turntable, then you do not have a Dual Voltage turntable. Now your talking about damage to the drive system. Which is comprised of various circuits, of which anyone of them could be bad. At this point, you'll have to take it to a reputable service center to have it diagnosed.
