We are working on a series of DIY videos for Technics Repair
, as well as general Turntable Repair
and servicing. So far, only a few videos are up, and we are working on finishing up the others. We expect to have about 20 videos just on the Technics Turntable Repair, Modification, and Calibration alone.
These videos are done by our professional service team in our service department.
Feel free to check them out by going to: http://djprolab.com
If you have any specific questions on tonearm calibration or replacement please post here, and I'll help you out.
In regards to the DJForums.com instructions on cleaning and calibrating the tonearm by removing the pivoting screw, we do not recommend this. We've seen toooo many times that people just don't know how to put it back together, and they have a tonearm that skips on them. We don't even like messing with the pivoting screw, because over time, it will become loose again, and of course always at the worst possible moment. It is our policy here at the service shop to ONLY replace tonearms and not try and fix any damaged ones. We can fix them, but cannot apply any sort of warranty to the work. For new tonearms, we have no problem applying our 6 month warranty.
But most of all, please use common sense when working on your turntables, or any gear for that matter. If you feel you might be getting in over your head, please contact professional help.
