Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
You need to check that the signal is getting to the amp. This can be done by removing the wires off the cartridge for the left and right channels. With the amp on touch the ends of the wires. If you hear a buzz the signal is getting to the amp and the cartridge is dead, but if you hear nothing and if the wiring is as you say good. Then the pre-amp in your amp for the cartridge has failed. This pre-amp will only affect the record deck and no other functions. If it has gone you can trace the wires from the sockets to it. Sometimes it will be on a seperate PC board. It's often a single IC that has failed. If you can replace it yourself be careful with the new one as these are often static sensitive chips.
PS the phono scokets on the amp sometimes buzz if you pull the plugs in & out!

I have a technic 1200 mk2. Yesterday while spinning the speed started to vary. Not pressing anything, the turntable would speed up and slow down by it self (only a small bit, not going crazy) just enough where the songs sound sped up or slowed down. When i pressed the start/stop again to stop the turntable it doesnt stop right away. It takes about 10 seconds to stop, but as its slowing down the turntable jumps (not a smooth stop) Some small things i noticed, when i pressed play all the lights, would slightly (very very small difference) dim and flicker (very very light difference) Any ideas what it could be?
