Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
During my sets I seem to be experiencing what seems like slight shift changing. For ex: I can find and match the beats at the beginning of my tracks, but towards the end I find that the beats are off and I have to re-match. I don't know if it could be the way the record was made or if it could be a turntable problem. My turntables are no more than a year old. I have a little over six years djing experience so I know how to find and match my beats. What do you think?
My speed change problem was caused by lots of dust and hair accumulating under the rim of the platter. Remove and clean the platter 'ditch'.

Some records that have centre hole too large can cause drift if record loose when placed on platter try small bit of paper between hole and spindle centre shaft ,if no drift then you know your deck isnt needing repaired ;)

There is a speed control IC inside this unit that could be defective or the speed detect sensors could be faulty. WIthout seeing the actual machine it is hard to tell. This one is a direct drive if memory serves me correctly, so you should not have this kind of drift. With the unit only a year old, I would not expect a motor problem either. Can you tell if the drift is toward higher speed or lower? Or does it vary?
