DJ Turntable buttons pressing during rewind?

Well thanks to all of our members over in our forums it seems that there are a few teething problems with DJ Hero turntable controllers. The most reported and most annoying (in our humble opinion) is during a rewind or fast scratch the buttons on the turntable seem to press themselves causing your streak to be destroyed!

There has been a lot of discussion about this on the Internet and even some people suggesting fixes involving jamming this here or that there to stop the problem. Taking a slightly more scientific approach we think we may be close to finding out once and for all what causes this problem but we need more help from you – gamers of the world – to find out if we are right.

What we need is as many people as possible to head over to the forum thread “buttons press themselves when I spin the turntable”, have a look what it says and post your own results. Once we have gathered a bit more information we may feel confident enough to post the definitive reason for what is causing this problem and what users can do about it.

Together we can sort this so come and join us!

    So I’m just trying to play this for the first time since I got it for Christmas. I’m not sure what my problem is. My buttons just seem to be pressing themselves whether I scratch or reverse or not. I can’t even get through the tutorials it’s that bad. I do seem to notice that if I keep the thing absolutely still that nothing happens, but that’s what’s supposed to happen!!! Furthermore, that seems to be the exception to the rule. It doesn’t matter if I do nothing or something, the friggin’ buttons are just happily jamming away. To what I have no idea.

    Can someone help? The DJ hero turntable for Wii does not allow for the scratch feature. I contact the company and was told I was to purchase a new one. This game is not even a year old and I keep it in the box. Why is that I am having this issue?
