Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I had a similar problem with a much older turntable some years before, but it went away when I hooked up this newer (but still quite old) turntable. The needle may have been dropped as right before this happened a kid was goofing with the turntable.
You should check the connections to the turntable, it sounds like it might be feedback hum, caused by a wire touching or something like that. Don't forget to check the connections to the cartridge too.

Yes, that large metal box is the housing for the transformer. Not too hard to replace, but if not done properly can cause serious damage to your turntable.
I've never heard of a transformer on these units causing a buzzing noise. Did you buy this used or new? If it's new, it's highly unlikely that the issue is with the transformer. However, we have been seeing some 'unusual' issues with Technics 1200s lately, which we attribute to a decline in quality standards @ Matsushita (Technics parent company).
The transformer can be purchased HERE. There really isn't much to replacing this part, just put it back exactly as you took it apart. Take pictures along the way, to help you if you get stuck. Also take some notes on where each part goes.
If you get stuck along the way, feel free to give us a call. Our service techs are masters with the 1200s, and we can walk you through it: 1.866.668.1596 ext 1

The only thing I can say is to make sure you set up your cartridges correctly - click HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS on BALANCING YOUR TONEARM properly.
If, you've balanced your tonearm, and set up your cartridges correctly, then you should not have any problems. Unless, your tonearms are damaged. But this is highly unlikely. I just think you need to balance properly.
Another note, Ortofon Concorde have a design flaw, in that they don't connect very well to the Technics tonearm. The Concorde's, have short and stubby connections on the rear, making for poor connections to the tonearm. Ortofon has addressed this issue by releasing the Ortofon OM series cartridges, and mount them to standard Technics Headshell.
If you still can't figure this out, feel free to give our techs a call 24/7 @ 1.866.668.1596 ext 1 - they can walk you through setting up, and properly testing your tonearm to see if it's damaged or not.

More than likely your motor might be bad. There is nothing else that controls the speed. Are you sure you purchased the correct size belt? Turn on the unit, without connecting the belt, and touch the motor shaft, and see if it fluctuates. You can also just get a marker, and marker a point on the motor shaft. When you turn it on, it will act as a visual indication as to it's speed.

Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"
If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.
Hope it helps

Your tracking and anti-skate are not set correctly.
If you have the manual for this unit, it should have directions for setting these.
