I have an old Wurlitzer Jukebox, Americana II, 3000 Series, I think. Plays old 45 records. Everything seems to be in working order...however it will only play songs that end with "0". A0, B0, C0...and so on and so forth. Any ideas? Thanks, John

Re: Only plays certain numbers
If it is a 200 selection machine you probably have a jammed number solenoid in the selector unit. This prevents the machine being able to move the solenoids to the correct number. Look at the circular selector unit with 'pins' on it under the carousel. at the bottom of that you will see a circular disc with 'teeth' all around it. When the jukebox is at rest or turned off you should be able to gently rotate that plate with the teeth on it. If it is jammed then that's your problem and will need some serious fixing.

See if there is a pattern to the number keys that are not operational, such as, 1 through 5 good, and 6 through 9 not good. This would indicate a break in the daisy chain from switch to switch. If it is just random numbers, maybe some need cleaning or adjustments. The buzzing could be a number of things, maybe the latch solenoid or a ballast.
This could also be a progaming problem. It just means that too many plays have been used. You just need to reset and the disc should play. If you do not have a manual, ask any dealer and they can walk you through it. It entails switching on the service switch and putting in a quick code. Then you will start from the beginning. For example, 9999, will entitle you to that many plays.
