I seem to be having a problem with my tech 12M3D's

I purchased them new about 3 years ago and I recently moved with them so I'm assuming the move might have done something to them but I'm not totaly sure.

My problem is this:

I'll be cuing a record and the needle will almost always skip back to the front of the record or further into the track. I've tried to re balance the tone arm according to technics specs and I still seem to be having the problem. Also during cue the tone arm is moving slighty from side to side and I think this is what is causing the needle to skip off the groove. I've never had this problem before so I'm hoping that you might have an answer for me as to what could be the problem.

So what's my problem...I;ve tried pretty much everything but I wanted some opinions before I lose my mind

Is it a tone arm issue a needle issue?

Should I throw them away :-(
