The RCA phono leads on Technics SL1210 turntables (and other makes) often get internal breaks in them and become intermittent or cut the sound off completely.
The SL1210 turntable is fairly prone to this problem as it was once a popular DJ deck so the phono cables would have been connected and disconnected every time it was taken to a different venue.
Along with intermittent or missing audio, broken phono cables can also cause problems with the turntable creating hum or buzzing sounds through your speakers.
I can replace the faulty phono leads and the separate earth wire with new ones along with investigating sound problems.
Please contact me for latest prices.
The replacement cables I use are the same thickness as the originals and both the left and right signal wires have individual screens. I can also replace the separate earth wire.
Faulty turntables can be dropped off for repair in Nailsworth (near Stroud in Gloucestershire) or shipped.
I don’t require the cartridge and stylus for replacing the cables so feel free to remove the headshell.
If shipping, please ensure you pack it adequately to avoid damage to the tonearm and cartridge (you can remove the cartridge and platter) and ensure there is plenty of packing around the platter to prevent it coming off and damaging anything including the motor magnets.
Turntable belt replacement
The SL1210 has a direct drive motor which means there is no belt to break.
A lot of different record turntables use a belt that connects the turntable to the motor. If you need the belt replacing or new phono leads fitting please contact me for a quote telling me the turntable model number.
I can also replace the cartridge and stylus for you.
