(Sorry just covering my ars)

This is a video showing you how to replace the little pop up target light on the front of your Technics SL MK2 turntable to an LED.
the advantages to this are, the LEDs draw less power, they are brighter, they have a longer life span and as an added bonus they work out cheaper in the first place.
By the way the LEDs on my decks look blue but they are actually white, they look blue on the camera because they have a high colour temperature.

Order codes:

Order code for maplin led:
N28BY = WHITE.
N30BY = GREEN.
N33BY = SUNSET ORANGE.
N31BY = BLUE.
N32BY = YELLOW.

Order code for maplin voltage regulator:
QL31J = (PART NUMBER: TS7805CZ)

OR

UJ54J = (PART NUMBER: L78S05CV)

When ordering the voltage regulator be sure to check the part number on the part its self to insure you are getting the correct part.

Order code for Radioshack voltage regulator: 276-1770 = (PART NUMBER: ML7805A)

WANINGS:
Dont have the turntable plugged in while you have the plastic case off, i did the test with the multi-meter so you dont have to.

Check and double check that there are no short circuits before powering up your turntable, and never allow a short circuit to occur in the lamp terminals. Or you can permanently damage transistors or regulators in your turntable.
