The pitch controls are probably dirty and need to be calibrated. Any authorized Technics service center should be able to do this fairly easily. You can clean them out yourself by using DEOX-IT or similar, but would need a frequency counter to calibrate them.

My 1210 mk2 spins at crazy speed when turned on and both 33/45 buttons light up but dont do anything when pushed.


I have seen this problem many times.
Option 1:
If you are comfortable with soldering, try replacing the drive IC. This solves the problem 90% of the time. The part number is: AN6675 . This is a discontinued part so you may have to search around a bit, but you can usually find one of them on eBay for between $25 - $40. There are a few newer versions of the chip that are suggested as replacements, but most of them have been on back order for years and you could end up waiting forever. I'd stick with the OEM part number on eBay. Just be sure it is in stock before you buy.
Option 2:
If you are not comfortable with delicate soldering or want a fix that is easy and 100% sure to work, I suggest replacing the whole motor board. This may sound extreme but it's really not. These are discontinued as well, but are usually easy to find on eBay. I've purchased many of these for less than $115. That may seem expensive at first, but it is still way cheaper than the $300 - $400 price a repair shop will charge. Be sure to purchase from a reputable seller with good history and, be sure that it is in good working order. Some are not, so carefully check the description. Some may look a little different than yours due to minor changes over the years, but as long as it is listed as compatible with the MK2 series, it will work fine. This is the most fool proof option if you don't mind the price. Like I said before, it is super easy and always works.

Technics deck has power but stopped rotating


If you're lucky, this can just be a dirty/corroded speed control. Try removing the platter and you should see 2 holes lower center of the indented section. In those holes should be the coarse speed controls. These really set the range of the fine speed controls we play with on the outside. Use a good commercial contact cleaner and spray these babys. Gently move them a bit counter clockwise and clockwise, spray again, then return to about where they started.
If that doesn't help, you either have a motor issue or the controller board has a problem - no easy fix there.

Technics 1210 MK2 - unstable/uneven speed problem


Since this is a direct-drive turntable, it isn't a slipping or stretched belt. You will need a technician with a couple pieces of equipment and some experience/training to find the source of the problem. I suspect the part(s) will be the minor cost of the repair.

Help for technics 1200 MK2 and 1210 Speed is too fast


On the 1200MK2 the pitch control slider is for just that purpose. Disregard the 0 setting and use the illuminated strobe marks on the platter to adjust to nominal speed. When they appear to be motionless you are there. The control on the 1210 may be a knob but the same principles apply.

Turntables lags on pick up


I have the same exact problem with one of my 1210 MK2 turntables. It seems like the motor is too slow now. When I hit the start button or release the record, it takes much longer to speed up to the normal speed than my other same exact turntable. I don't think it has anything to do with the pitch slider. Please let me know if you find out what the problem is thanks!

Pitch problems


You would need to calibrate them to each other. Not very difficult, but not that easy either.

I would suggest taking it to a service center, and ask them to calibrate the turntables to each other. It's a matter of adjusting VR302, which is located underneath the turntable platter. You'll also need a frequency counter or similar - which aren't cheap.

Sounds like you need a new pitch control. YOu can purchase a pitch control separately and install yourself, however soldering is required. You will have to solder off the old board, and solder on the new board.
