Question about Wurlitzer Jukebox 1015 One More Time 100-Disc CD Changer
I have a Wurlitzer OMT 50 CD Jukebox (built 1/99) with a problem correctly spinning a CD. After the CD is properly loaded from the carousel it either spins erratically (varies in RPM then stops after a few revolutions) or does not spin at all but you can the CD player trying to move the CD. I am thinking the culprit is the CD player itself and have ordered a new CDM-12 (I did not find FixYa until after I ordered the part). What I need to know is 1, did I order a compatible CD player that will work with the Wurlitzer? 2, was my diagnosis of the problem correct? and if it was not any suggestions or fixes for this besides buying the new CD player would be greatly appreciated (I can always return the part I bought). 3, if my diagnosis was correct how difficult is this part to change out and are is there anything I should be careful doing or things to look out for. The part I bought: http://www.happcontrols.com/amusement/jukebox/95168301.htm Thank you in advance for any assistance I can get on fixing this.
I just had one like this and found an open bridge on the control board under the player. It is round and near the center of the board

As far as I know the CD player for a machine of that age was a CDM 12. Your diagnosis is right but the same symptom can be caused by the control pcb underneath the cd player (you can see the led display to the right of the player. That's the control pcb). But generally it is the cd player itself.
However, you should also know that a similar thing happens when the laser eye is dirty from dust. But it doesn't sound like that to me. If it is dust the cd spins properly...stops....spins again....and then gets put back. If it spins as if it is having problems spinning it is usually the laser unit.
It's sensitive to static so touch any part of the metal of the jukebox that is definitely shiney metal to discharge yourself. To remove it you undo the four posi screws at each corner of the oblong unit. It's about the size of a large pack of cigarettes. Lift it up about an inch and you will see three plugs going into the sides. One on one side and two on the other. They just pull off with a bit of wiggling. (make a note where they go). While you are there take note that there are two loose metal spacers that the unit sits on, on the far two corners where the screws came out. They can easily get knocked off when you lift up the unit.
Transfer the black metal bracket piece on the top, to the other unit .....it's just two screws. And replace in the reverse order.
Make sure when you put the new unit back that you have the two metal spacers in place or it wont sit down correctly.

I've just had a look at the link you posted. That's not the right unit. Electronically it is but not the base it is attached to is not for a Wurlitzer unit. It's a rock-ola (I think). If you are in the Uk contact Sound Sense Electronics. They will sort it out for you.

To make the jukebox automatically switch between jukebox CDs and the IPOD source, you'll need the background music adaptor. I have these in stock, but need to know which amplifier is in your machine, as different amplifier types require different BGM units. Please email email@example.com

SOURCE: I have a Wurlitzer Jukebox
This is not a problem....When the machine is idle, it displays the most popular selection, or as the Germans call it, the "hit of the house". I doubt it ever showed "0000", except when it was first turned on and then only for a few seconds. As you make more selections, this "most popular selection" is automatically updated. You can clear the Selection & Credit Computer (SCC) and then it will show "0101" until it recognizes a new "most popular selection". Your manual should tell you how to clear the SCC. Let me know if you need anything else, firstname.lastname@example.org.
