    DJ box can't source many of the original parts any more and couldn't service mine.

    I couldn't find anyone to service them and ended up doing the service/repairs myself which turned out to be straight forward:
    -Calibration of Pitch, Break Sharpness & Anti Skate (just need a good multimeter)
    -Motor spindle clean & oil (correct oil needed - ebay)
    -Tone arm adjustment
    -Replaced lights, buttons, feet, headshell and audio rca leads (ebay for parts)

    Mine had two major issues when I got them back from DJ box. One wouldn't spin and the other had a weird jitter to the platter. Both problems fixed by installing a new AN6675 chip.

    If you need a new tone arm only 1200 series colour parts are available new and they are expensive. For pitch control issues only MK5 pitches are available new (no click at 0).

    The new 1210 MK7 is due for release in a few months too.
