Technics SL-10 parts

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I bought an SL-10 while overseas that didn’t power on but I was told it was the only issue, there are heaps of scams back at home but the shop owner seemed like a nice block.

 

My usual technician told me that the internal condition is pretty bad and will require significant effort to get it to work and also parts, wonder if anyone knows of any store where I can source replacement parts? I have tried eBay but couldn’t find anything.

 

cheers

Hi

It would be useful it your tech could narrow down the problem a little. A few questions:

Are mechanical parts worn?

Are electronic parts showing distress, resistors burnt, or capacitors leaking, or swollen?

Is circuit board showing corroded tracks, or dry joints?

Is there evidence of poorly execute past attempts to repair, or out right butchery by previous techs/diyers?

 

The issues raised in the first two questions could be addressed by parts replacement, but the last two are probably terminal issues.

 

Regards

Parts for sl-10 doesn't exist for a long time except for maybe the tonearm belt. Try your luck first with recapping and see if it powers up first

Thanks mate,

He told me is looking again in a couple of weeks as he is working on something else. He said his goal is to make it spin first and then advise if is worth to try a repair. That’s what I thought it will be a good idea to know where some spare parts can be found.

Thanks, He has managed to fix the power up issue but mentioned other issues. I’ll wait for his next report.

Yes, I was also thinking that you might be best getting another turntable and using this one for donor parts.
