Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
When turned on it gains speed without any control. i think it is going to catch on fire....obviously the belt drive is dead?
I 2nd the opinion. Control electronics "gone bad".

This unit is NOT belt driven. It is direct drive, meaning, that a series of Integrated Circuits (IC's), and various other electronic components control it's speed. If it's going very fast, more than likely one of the IC's (or multiple), have gone bad. You need to take this to a service center for repair.
