    In a pissed state I left a drink on top of one of my decks when I came home over the weekend.

    No surprise I wake up in the morning and one of my 1210's is filled with water. Typical of my luck at the moment.

    Maybe its secretly a blessing in disguise, I've been considering getting some cdj1000's recently.

    Anyone know if Technics can survive a pint of water? Or can be fixed? Its highly doubtful it will or it can be saved, but worth the question nonetheless

    If it wasnt on when your water spilled into it you probably stand a good chance of bringing it back to life.

    Let it dry out, you could also unscrew the baseplate and make sure theres no water left in there

    If you turn it back on and its still dead, dont forget to check the fuses. There should be one in the plug and I think theres another on the main circuit board.

    One of mine had beer spilt in it once, went in all round the tonearm, we just took the platter of, took the plastic protector off and began to shake as much if it out as we can and hand dry what we could, I took it home and checked to see if it worked and it was fine, I left it spinning for an hour or two so it didn't seize and it's been fine since.

    So you should be ok man.

    cheers for all the comments.

    After 5 days of drying, using either the airing cupboard or a hairdryer, she has survived.

    However looks like the motor is damaged as the platter doesnt spin well and when you are cueing up a record on it and your finding a particular cueing point, you have to push the record it get it going.

    Seemed too good to be true it working again.

    Also, DONT TURN IT ON UNTIL ITS 100% DRY.


    If you got a big box, stick it in there with a bit of silica gel.
