Question about Sony PS-LX250H Turntable
It's likely the belt has come off the correct position. It would need to be adjusted. One reason it's moved is that it needs replacing, because it's too slack.

SOURCE: Sony PS-LX250H speed problem
I have a different Sony model (PS-LX-150H) that had a similar problem. I hadn't used it in awhile, and then when I did, I noticed the speed problem.
IF your PS-LX250 is like my PS-LX150, there are small speed adjustment screws accessible from the bottom of the unit. On mine, the two adjustment screws were labeled - one for 33rpm, the other for 45 rpm. Basically I just fiddled a bit with them using a very small precision screw driver until I could verify that I had reached 33 rpm (I used a stopwatch and literally counted the number of rotations/minute after making adjustments.)
Now it sounds right!

If this is a belt drive then most of these speed increases are caused by the belt being in the wrong position. The belt could be faulty and my need to be replaced. Otherwise it could be due to a power supply problem, such as a faulty regulator to the supply of the motor. A check on the voltage to the motor will determine this. Assuming you know what the correct voltage should be! Of course with luck it will be higher than the motor is supposed to run at.

According to anything I can find online, like any decent turntable it has a manual pitch control. Unfortunately, I can't find a manual or even a good close-up picture.
This is the best one I've found.
What's that rectangular slider-looking thing at the front right edge?
