Default 1210 ground lead!

Hello, Can anyone help me? I have a technics 1210 and unfortuneatly whilst it was being transported, the ground lead got pulled out of the deck. I opened up the turntable but i have no idea where abouts the lead needs to be re-attatched.

Thanks very much.

The same thing happened to mine! I repaired it myself, I took the rubber base off, and from memory, I think there was a small metal plate underneath, held on by one or two screws, which when removed reveal the ground lead going around plastic posts, serving as a strain releif. Not wanting to do any more dissassembly, this is where I re-attached the lead (it broke just here), by soldering, and covering with heatshrink tubing. I think I held my 1210 on its side for all this, to avoid the oil running out of the bearing (i.e. not turning the turntable upside-down) It might be safest to remove the platter whilst working on it like this!

good luck.

In emergency situations, I have tied a single strand of wire to the tonearm, which enabled the unit to be used, better than nothing eh!

Hi Arnold
Looking at the picture, you can see the earth cable running under the PCB. Then it is soldered to the solderlip marked with the arrow.
Hope this helps.

I was wondering how accurate my memory was! was I right about the small metal plate? That pic looks like it was directly under the base of the tonearm. Well, I'm glad that nice person posted that picture!
