Hi Pieter - my guy said he "cleaned" the buttons , they were sticking a bit...I'm not sure what actual servicing would be...If you have anybody who can fix this issue , I'm game ! I had the needle pull off the table about 7 times tonight randomly , so annoying
I also replaced my outlet and grounded it / surge suppressor attached.
Might be ready to find another table or find a cartridge for my B&O Beogram 3000. I love this Technics, wish it would cooperate! Some guy on another forum said all direct drive tables are trouble and to sell it
