Question about Technics SL-1200 Turntable
The platter on one of my turntables changes direction or stops when the pitch control is not set to zero. This seems to be an intermitent problem. Some times it will correct itself and I can move the pitch control. I have had the pitch controls replaced in the past but I am still having this problem on one of my decks. Please advise.
Seems to me that an ic gets to hot and comes in the thermal out zone, or too many dust at the potentiometre, often a lack of cleaning etc , which technics owners are well known for... you have one ic or unit which or can't stand the heat or gets different data.....
First take a look by yourself. It ain't rocket science

More than likely either an issue with an IC (integrated circuit) on the main PCBoard such as IC301 (Pitch Control IC) or one of the Regulators like Q2 and Q3. While your at it, you might want to check IC201 (Turntable Control IC), and IC101 (Turntable Drive). Doesn't sound like anything is busted just yet, if it comes and goes. This means something is about to fail, and your just seeing the failure in action.
