Default Problem in pitch TECHNICS SL 1210

Hello Friends,

I bought a pair of TECHNICS SL 1210 and I repaired a small problem in the pitch.
When I place 2 music similar with the pitch in 0 the mixing she leaves perfect during the whole time.
When I remove the pitch of the 0 and I take him for +2 in both she plays them disks BPM already seedling, then I have to alter the pitch of one of them for +1,5, after made this the mixing it is perfect...
When I place in +8 I have to place in the other +6, and looking at the plate of the two in movement with the pitch in +8 of the to see perfectly that one of the lair disks wheel more slowly...

Can this problem be the pitch? or components like Q2, Q1 and D3? because when I bought one of them vein with problems and these components were substituted...

I await return.

Thank you
Willian - Brazil

To adjust the pitch correctly, connect a frequency counter between TP27 and ground and adjust VR301 for 268.08 kHz, +/- 0.05 kHz.
Next adjust VR302 for 2.7kohm, +/- 0.1 ohm, measured between TP31 and TP32.
VR302 is the trimpot located on the same PCB as the pitch slider.

The Service Manual is downloadable but I can't recall where. Try Google.
