When the playback is going on, the sound can get blurring, fuzzy, now it can get worse or better when I touch the rca cables.
If its a problem with the RCAs - then what is the solution, and how easy is it to fix it.

Re: RCA Phono plugs
Replace the rca leads, make sure the ground lead is tethered, make sure the lines arent crossed under the headshell....but soldering a fresh pair of rca, usually fixes that....Also remove the headshell/cartridge, and see if there is any residue in the 4 contacts in the tonearm....

The preferred approach is to run a ground cable from the turntable to the ground post on the back of your preamp or receiver. This keeps buzz and hum out of the audio signal. If your receiver doesn't have a ground post, you'll have to connect the ground to one of the RCA signal jacks. In both cases the question is, when you have two grounds, which one to connect? You'll have to determine this by trial and error. My guess is you'll get the best results by connecting both, so start with this arrangement. Connect the turntable's audio cables from its RCA jacks to the receiver, select the phono input, and turn it on (with the volume turned down). Turn up the volume until you can hear hum or buzz. Then connect a piece of wire to the ground post on the turntable panel and touch the other end to the ground post on the receiver or to the RCA jack/plug's outer ring. If the hum/buzz goes away, you're good to go and can connect the wire permanently. If not, try the ground cables individually and use the connection that works best.
Tried another needle and cleaned the contacts of the tonearm and this needle and recordddd?
measured the connections from your rca cables to the tone arm output? How old is the unit and have you ever replaced the tonearmwire(in the arm itself, the standard one sucks) and the external rca cable. Then it's about time if you havent. The standard cables are outdated and it will cost you together about 100euro, wires are about 70 euro for in your arm and buy some nice rca cables for 30 euro, not from technics which lay on the shelves for over ten years. It really souns better. I have a person which makes real nice cables for just 40 euro a pair, shielded , good rca plugs(i have phono outputs on all tables, no pcb, but those are wbt and are 100 euro a pair. The cables from that men really sounded good, while the denon distributeur sold me some different oyaide cables and i noticed nothing. The 1200 mk2 series are now really at an age that you need to refurbish the caps and resistors and wires and the spindlebearing and housing.... And don't let it be done by a so called service centre, do it yourself, 40 euro job for capacitors and 30 for the spindle and he is as new.
either you haven't earthed the deck to the amp, on the proper ground screw, or your head shell wires are touching.
if the cartage(the thing the needle slots into) unscrews from the tone-arm, try unscrewing it,then putting back on, nice & tight....
if it still does it then it's your RCA leads that go from the deck to the amp(phono cables).
normally you would wire a deck/decks to a mixer first, then from the master out on the mixer to the AUX IN on the amp.
Try the switch in the other position and see if that fixes the problem. some turntables had a phono level that is different than a standard rca line level input. Also try a different cable if the rca is not hardwired in to the turntable. The cable could be bad. If worse comes to worse upgrade to another amplifier or tuner that has a separate phono input. hope that helps.
"Much" sound? What's that mean? Very low, almost silent, tinny?
"There is a switch on the bottom panel, next to the RCA cables, that selects between PHONO/LINE. Use PHONO level for
plugging into a turntable (PHONO) input on a home stereo. Use the LINE level for plugging into CD/AUX/TAPE inputs. WARNING: You
may damage your receiver if you plug in a LINE level into a PHONO input."
If you're using the RCA cables, how is the switch set on the TT?
From the manual....
2. RCA Audio Output Cables: These cables should be plugged into a CD or Auxiliary input on your computer. IMPORTANT:
