Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Gemini Xl-1800 turntable. When I put the unit into quartz lock via pitch control slider, according to the platters strobe rpm meter it's running slow. Have to move the pitch slider and speed it up to make the dots appear stationary.. At 33rpm it needs to me moved ahead 1% and at 45 its 2%
Sometimes it's down to the mains in the country you are in. Some decks change speed from 50HZ to 60HZ.

The drive circuits on this unit are probably failing. Have you had any service done to it recently, or at all, ever? If so, this might be the problem. The caps have probably dried out. Once they dry out, they go pretty fast afterwards causing variance in speed. A good tech should be able to replace the caps, and get your unit back to original specs.
