    Hi, this has been posted before but that post didn't have specifics that I was looking for. I would like to replace both the bulb and resistor (?) to get this turntable repaired. Can anyone tell me what specific part #'s I need to order? The service manual for the Technics SL-1900 is hard to read from vinyl engine which is why I'm asking here, thank you.

    There are probably a number of TTs that use the same parts, might want to check some different MCS and Technics manuals to see if you can figure it out

    Great thank you for the info, just bought it. I’m wondering if I could also use that resistor as well for the replacement?

    Yes, you should be able to use that resistor as well. It is 10k ohms which should be the same value as yours. If yours is 7.5k ohms then definitely use that resistor.

    I put in the other resistor from a strobe light parts SL-B100 last night and it worked like a charm! Sprayed the speed pots and it's holding rock steady now. Thanks all for the help.

    Hi, is that a standard 10k 1w carbon resistor, like any one would do?

    Go with a 2 watt if possible. The housing heats up pretty hot which causes the failure. I used a 2 watt ceramic Ohmite resistor for a friends repair.

    Thank you Nashou, that is exactly what I will do.
