Hi there,

I have purchased a cheap LED strip kit from ebay which you can change colour using a remote control and powers directly to a UK power source.

here is a link to what I purchased:

I would like to power the LED's internally using the Technics power supply.

Please can somebody explain to me what I need to do in order to complete this.

I am from the UK :)

first of all there is not enough space between the cover and the platter, so your LED Stripe wont fit under the platter without destroying the cover.

and then there is a power consumption problem, the internal power supply is to weak to supply both, your deck and the LED stripe, youll need the aditional power supply, doesent matter if it is the one delivered with the stripe or another one that suits your needs... but i dont think it will go well without a 2nd power supply.

thank you for your reply, would I be able to mount this inside the turntable directly from the internal power and wire the LED's to it?

I can mount the LED's no problem inside the deck but would be great if I can find a way of internally powering them

You could, but ill suggest strictly to not do this.
Youre playing with 230V inside a Protection-Class 2 Device with a metal case.
If you do a mistake or get a lose wire after a time > risk of death.

Okay so what is the best way of internally powering any LED's for under the platter?

Best bet (imo, did it some times. there is maybe a better way) is:
Buy some LEDs, drill 3mm Holes into the black Cover under the Plate, connect them with wires and some some kind of glue and then connet it to the mainboard.

But you need to calculate LED/Preresistor to get 20V voltage-fall total.
then connect to Ground (for example lower left Mainboard-Screw and +20V (needlelamp).
But im not sure if the Power from the orinigal transformator is high enough. i use other Transformator because i mostly convert Japanese Turntables for use with 230V supply
