Question about Technics SL-1210M5G Turntable
Not a pitch issue. This is a drive issue. The drive circuits are located underneath the turntable platter, on the main PCB. They usually go bad, more recently then before, unfortunately.
Not an easy fix, but not an expensive fix either, as the components are relatively cheap. It is time consuming, and if you have someone work on it who doesn't know what they are doing, could run up a nice tab on the repair. So be careful where you take it to. Ask them if they've worked on Drive Issues on 1200s before. If they look at you like, huh? STAY AWAY.
