Issue is either your tonearm or your RCA cables. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to determine which is the problem. I would suggest replacing the RCA cables first, as it is the least expensive. If it does not solve your problem, then the issue is with the tonearm.
You can also do this for now:
Remove your headshell/cartridge from the tonearm. Look inside the tonearm tube, you'll see 4 gold prongs. Make sure all 4 prongs are protruding, and are 'shiny'. If they are not, then the issue is with your tonearm. If they look good, then more than likely, the issue is with your RCA cables. Taking it to a qualified repair center will help in determining what is the issue, but they will need to open your unit to test, so be prepared to pay for the estimate right off the bat.

I have had the same problem on my 1210 MKII. I have taken it apart a number of times to replace the original lights with LED's, and naturally thought I messed something up in the reassembly. I actually found that the problem was in the connection between the tone-arm and the pick-up "housing".(Pardon my bad english) There is a little rubber band in between, and sometimes you have to unscrew the "housing" flip the rubber band, and screw it back on pretty hard. Also try cleaning the four contact pins before screwing it back on. I have heard of quite a few having this problem. A pretty obvious thing to do, but I had not thought of it, and it would have saved my from taking the entire machine apart several times.
