On the main board you should see what look like a metal open screw it will be located sort of to your left and is rite at the edge of the plinth. You can adjust that to line up the LED's on the pitch control............. It will allow you to move to either the + or - depending on what you need to do..........
With all do respect, this is not the way to do it....
This way you loose all reference incase you might put on a correct platter
The MKII strobe is on a other internally regulated frequency than the MKI version and is not suited for the mentioned platter.
I agree with Alec, ignore the dots, and make sure that your speed is accurate with an external strobe.
In all the 23 years of ownership, my SL1200MKII has never had any speed issues.
Your table is quartz locked too, so if the speed is okay now, it always will be okay, and if you still have doubts, just do the external strobe check.
Be very careful with trying to fit one to the other, you will be lost in space before you know it.
In my opinion, if you want to see a steady strobe, buy a platter from EBay for 25 bucks, I don’t know if you have damping underneath your present platter, the one you need have, or at least will, because only 1200 platter are available. In fact you can sell your present platter to me than if it is in good shape, I have an SL1700MKI and I can do a little experimenting, however I don’t know if the shipping costs to Holland will add to much to the price....
Vinyl, tubes and tapes... how lucky can you be
