Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
At mid to high volumes when the needle is on the record and u touch or tap the deck u can hear the tap or touch coming through the speakers, have tried several different cartridges to no avail have also changed rca and earth cables to no avail, any one got any ideas wot would cause this, and only at high volumes am getting a rumbling noise
Try attatching the ground cables to the ground screws on the back of your mixer. That will solve the problem and eliminate any hum you may get at the moment. I did that with my 1210 Mk2's with my Numark Mixer and it worked.

Since you've already replaced your RCA cables, and tried different cartridges, the only other thing that would cause this type of issue is your tonearm. It's probably on it's way out, and will need to be replaced shortly.
You can obtain a replacement tonearm HERE, however, it's rather difficult to replace the tonearm without experience or knowledge on soldering.
