You have a runaway platter issue which is generally caused by either 1 or many factors - none of which are easy fixes, unfortunately. It could be any of your IC, resistors, or capacitors that have gone bad. Fortunately, these parts are still available with the exception of IC301 - discontinued - so, pray that it is not it. You will need to take it to an authorized service center for repair. Use the Repair Service search feature in Fixya.com to obtain someone locally. If you can't find one in your area, we are listed in the directory, and our company offers free return shipping within the continental U.S. - and if you are in NYC, we offer free pick up/delivery. We are experts with the 1200s, so rest assured you are in good hands. If you find a knowledgeable service tech in your area, and he's stumped, he's welcome to give us a call as well and we can walk him through the servicing & repair. - Justin

It is a 3 pronged chip near the power supply.. there are two of them. desolder and replace with new of the same part number. you may need a service manual to retrieve the part number. to be safe do them both. This is usually caused by a reverse ground. I did that one time (actually twice) messing with my pop up light.

This is a high dollar turntable. If you want, take the screws out, open it up and check that the direct drive speed gear is in place. Other than that I would take it to a repair shop. There's one guy on ebay selling a new one for $500.00 http://cgi.ebay.com/Technics-SL-1200MK2-Manual-Direct-Drive-Turntable-New_W0QQitemZ320132536688QQihZ011QQcategoryZ64448QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
