My jukebox will for some unknown reason start flipping the selection covers automatically without pushing the selection button. This happens every half hour or so if I leave the cards in the center position or so it automatically flips them all from right to left until the last row of cards is left on the left. Can anyone figure out what I can do to stop this. Is it possibly a faulty switch. Thanks for any help. email@example.com
See your manual on how to enter SERVICE MODE. When you enter it the display will show SERVICE MODE. Then type, hold and push, or push the keyboard keys as follows:
Type 20 - display will show ATTRACT MODE ON
hold RESET key down and then push 9 key - display will show ATTRACT MODE OFF
push POPULAR key
The problem should be fixed and you can shut the door and resume normal operation.

Re: Rowe cd jukebox
There is something called a "play stimulator".
It's actually a program setting. When the jukebox is in a pub it is set to play a random record now and then to remind people there is a jukebox. It's programmed that way and can be turned on or off.
What you have is a setting for flipping the pages for the same reason.
It's not a fault it is actually doing what it has been told. You can time your watch to it.
I have no idea how to change it but rest assured it isn't a fault as such. It's been set up that way. You need a Rowe expert.

What model is your Rowe Ami jukebox, there will be an information label on the back or inside the jukebox with the serial number and the model type. We can suggest a solution once we know your model type.
You need to unlock the top door of the jukebox so you can operate the catches to get to the keyboard. The open relays R1 & R5 which are normally under a plastic cover, the open contacts on these relays need cleaning. Do not use any form of switch cleaner, just make a paper taper and pull this through the contacts to clean the contact tips.
AT THIS TIME YOU ARE NOT SURE IF THE PROBLEM IS IN THE LASER ASSEMBLY, OR THE AMPLIFIER? BORROW OR RENT, AN AMPLIFIER HOOK IT UP TO THE OUT PUT ON THE LASER OUT PUT ON THE LASER CD OUT PUT. LOOK AT LASER UNIT IT HAS A MARKING ON IT THAT SAYS AUDIO OUT PUT. PUT CABLE TO A SECOND AMPLIFIER. THAT WAY IF IT STILL FADES. THEN THE CD LASER IS THE PROBLEM . IF THE SOUND IS GOOD THEN THE AMPLIFIER IS AT FAULT DOCTOR FIX IT
You say you do not have the digital display lite up, have you checked all of the breakers on the power supply?
If not do so. Rowe Ami jukeboxes are very prone to dry joints (cold joints in the USA) this is cracking around the soldered pin on the connections to the boards.
If you can solder correctly then check out the printed circuit board on the power supply. I would retest and see if the display now lights after correcting a fault on the power supply.
If that has not made any difference then proceed to the Mechanism Control Board and the Central Control Computer (CCC) and check again for dry joints.
If you can not solder with any confidence then send in your boards to a Rowe Ami specialist for testing/repair.
With regards to your problem with the Rowe Ami 100 cd jukebox.
Do you have a manual, if not I suggest you buy a printer manual or one on CD and refer to the Programming and Installation section.
In order for the jukebox to know about the cd's that are installed in the jukebox it has to initialize all or the changed cd's that have been replaced within the jukebox.
Put the jukebox into the Service Mode (the service mode should appear on the display)
Type 3 to select the Initialize sub menu
Type 0 and full initialize will appear on the display
Press Popular to start the initialization
Place the jukebox service switch into the normal mode
Initiazation will take around 30 minutes to complete.
Rowe Ami jukeboxes are prone to dry joints (called cold joints in the USA), this is cracking around the soldered connection pins that connect the wiringing to the circuit boards. If you can solder correctly then I would advise you to check all of the boards for cracking around any of the pins on the boards. So check out the following:-
Power supply board
I would check out the Keyboard/Display the display board controls the title flip buttons.
I have seen a nuber of brand new display units for sale in the USA on Ebay for very little money.
When these were first made they were an arm and a leg. If you bought the combined unit that was put into the HML hideaways you could refit into your jukebox.
If You are not good at soldering then my advice would be send the boards to a Rowe Ami specialist for testing/repair.
