Try this first.
The Tormat, located on the bottom of the main assembly, gets dirty and needs cleaning in most cases.
Be sure the power is off when you do this. You will have to remove the front glass to see the tormat or selection contacts. These are located under the records and have a bundle of wires that lead to it which are attached to a bank of contacts that are very delicate and if not adjusted using the proper tools you can do more damage than you can imagine. The contacts or buttons that the points make contact with are brass and can become corroded at times. Use a piece of good quality paper (not sand) and rub back and forth until polished. You can look at the points and see if they are making contact with the brass buttons. If the points appear worn out or need to be adjusted you should contact a pro.
If there is a broken wire on the point bank look for the soldered point tail that is missing
a wire and re-solder it to the contact. Again, if none of this makes any sense contact a pro.
One other possibility is that the pin connector on the grey box located on the left side of the mechanism may not be making good contact resulting in a loss of information to the tormat.

All contacts dirty? Doubtful.
Possible: Wiper that runs along the contacts isn't making contact. be sure that the wipers that contact the selection memory dots are both working properly. You'll have to open the back door to see this.
One could be bent or broken.
Be sure jukebox gets a lube job. It's often neglected for decades.
Be sure to wiggle the contacts on the keyboard and at the gray plastic box on the side of the record magazine. could be a dirty contact, too. Seeburgs of this era are known for it.

When you get your manual (the 1975 Entertainer is the STD2) I would check out the very fine cables that are on arm that runs over the tormat on your jukebox. On the tormat is a series of contacts A and B that are for each of the record selections. The contact can be cleaned with a pencil eraser (rubber) this will clean the contacts up with out any damage.
