Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
When I power on my tables everything seems normal, but when I turn on tables...The lights flicker slowly. Also, the audio sounds real slow and distorted.
All connections are hooked up properly and audio connections and means are correct.
First and foremost, check to see that your turntable is set to the correct voltage setting for your area.
Remove your slipmat, as well as any rubber mat you might have on the unit. You want to expose the metal turntable platter. On the platter you'll see 2 holes on opposite ends. Rotate the platter to the 9 o'clock position. You'll see a voltage switch - 115V / 220V - make sure it's set to your country's setting:
U.S. / Japan / Canada: 110-115V
IF, you do not see this option on your turntable, then you do not have a Dual Voltage turntable. Now your talking about damage to the drive system. Which is comprised of various circuits, of which anyone of them could be bad. At this point, you'll have to take it to a reputable service center to have it diagnosed.

Check to make sure that your voltage setting is set correctly. Look
under the turntable platter. You'll see a voltage selector. Make sure
it's properly set for your area (115V or 220V).
If this does not solve the problem, or you have a turntable that does not have the voltage setting feature, then you might have a faulty turntable drive issue or an issue with the power, which means something is wrong on the main board (located underneath the turntable platter).
