Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
Sounds like a short. A resistor probably burned out, and is causing unregulated power to hit your system. If you look at your main PC Board, underneath the turntable platter (disconnect your turntable), and remove the board. You'll be able to look at the board, and see if there are any burn sections on the board. If so, than the components around that area will need to be replaced. Generally R213 gets burnt, and Q2, Q3 get burnt, causing this sort of issue. This is not something I would recommend fixing yourself, and I would suggest seeking professional assistance.
You might also want to take a look at your fuses, which are located on the left side on a smaller PC board. If you don't see any fuses, then your unit does not have any fuses (common) installed.
Hope this helps.
