Question about Technics SL-1200MK2 Turntable
Your problem Is more than likely one of two easy to fix things. First we'll try the easiest. that would be reset the centerpoint of your pitch controll. All you need is a Phillips screwdriver and a little time and this picture: Apparently the picture is too blurry to read so let me give you the link: http://www.deckdoctor.com.au/TECHNIC%20SL1200%20PCB.pdf
you don't have to worry about all the technical stuff really it's just started look at the strobe lights and slowly turn the screw as you move the slider back to Center and make sure you bring this keep the strobe stable. if that doesn't fix your problem, then you do have to worry about the complicated stuff. If you are not familiar with all of that, I would suggest just replacing the pitch control. it's cheaper than paying what it would cost you at a repair shop and very straight forward. You don't even need to saulder. They don't cost very much and the part number is right there you can get one on eBay for pretty cheap. Good luck

On the 1200MK2 the pitch control slider is for just that purpose. Disregard the 0 setting and use the illuminated strobe marks on the platter to adjust to nominal speed. When they appear to be motionless you are there. The control on the 1210 may be a knob but the same principles apply.

More than likely it is a faulty drive IC (Integrated Circuit). If so, your out of luck, because most parts for this unit are discontinued, with the exception of the belt.
There really isn't much else you can do. Will probably cost too much to repair, if you can find someone who can repair it.
Sorry couldn't be of much more help.

You will need to check your belt for wear. Lift felt on platter and check belt tension. It may need replacing. To replace, simply lift platter section of the unit, taking note of the belt position. replace and your problem will be solved

Hi, could just be platter not fitted hard down on spindle. I suggest you remove the platter and place it upon a dead flat surface to check to see that the platter is flat. If it is flat refit to turntable ensuring it is hard down on the spindle. If bent discard and replace with new platter.Platters can be ordered for all model 1200/1210 from email@example.com
