Trying to hook new amp to old jukebox??? 1963 Rockola

I have a 1963 Rockola jukebox that I want to hook it up to a newer receiver. The old amp needs rebuilt so I thought it would be cool to run it thur my home stereo. When i unplug the turntable from the amp i only have one plug my receiver has 2 phono jacks R and L. ?How would I hook that up?
thanks Randy

Hi Randy,

I take it that the output from the jukebox is mono (only a signal and screen cable) and the connection to the amplifier is a phono plug. You could make up a cable by using a phono inline socket and two phono plugs. I would think that you could purchase one from your local electronic store. If you make one up it should be made using a screened cable.

Rockola Model 490 2 Super Sound Juke Box wont power on


(1) Make sure the wall outlet has power. (2)Make sure the power switch is "on" (3) check the fuses. If you discover a blown fuse, be sure to replace the fuse with the correct value. If it blows again, you may have a more serious problem.

I have a 1979 rowe ami jukebox model R65 when i switch it on it plays one record then just spins the record magazine and wont select another record what parts do i need .


Hello Gary,

If your jukebox is ineed a 1979 model it would be a R-83 Fiesta, Claremont or Disco. These jukeboxes curved top to bottom.
I think your jukebox may be the 1981 R-85 Starwood, Starburst or Starlight.

If your jukebox is from the 1979 era upwards then it will be electronically controlled.

Rowe Ami R-80 imperial jukebox


Hello Andy,

Yes I know the 1976 Rowe Ami R-80 jukebox very well as well as most of the other Rowe Ami jukeboxes.

The turntable motor and the lighting work off of the 110 volt output from the power supply.
The other power voltages are connected to the power supply via the molex plug.

Pin 1 30VDC white/red
Pin 2 30VAC yellow/black
Pin 3 Common black
Pin 4 Ground gren/yellow
Pin 5 No connection
Pin 6 Common black

All the voltages are protected by circuit breakers.

I assume that you may be in the UK if this is the case here are my contact details.

Hi i hav a 470 rockola jukebox it dosnt seem to slect i push first butten down and2 but the 3 butten wont release to slect any ideas thanks


The problem is probably in the keyboard. Clean all the contact switches you can get to with very fine sandpaper. The reason it is stuck is it is waiting for that third selection to complete the circuit.

How do you set the Rockola 480 to free play?


For free play on Rock-Ola 480. Open your jukebox, on the right,you will see a large metal box marked Profit Setter. In this box are Sections A, B and D. In section D, you will see very small white buttons on a pink background. Push ALL of the buttons in section D to the left with a pen.It will play for free until changed. For money, put it back like it was. It will also play all songs automatically. If you wanna know that, e-mail to varnett1@woh.rr.com

The third select button will not stop down


I have a model 464 and my problem was similar but mine was the second digit.
I replaced the p c board in the selection control box and my problem was gone.
I would check the selection control box.
Hope this helps

Jukebox Rock-ola 464 wont turn on


Hi sullysfarm,

Here are the details of an action on Ebay for a 464 manual in the USA.
Rock-Ola 464 Jukebox Service Manual Item number: 220350796639

With regards to your jukebox not working after transportation I would check to see that you have not caught any power switches that are on the back of the jukebox (these may be in a recess) or check all the plug in connectors for a loose connection.

I have a rockola mystic jukebox & one side of the speakers does not work, i would be greatful for any tips


Either a bad connection somewhere, or one channel in your amplifier is out.

Before you try anything else, switch the amp from 'stereo' to 'mono.' If the speakers come on, your amp is good and you simply have a bad connection somewhere between the amplifier and cartridge (thing that holds the stylus"needle"). Or, possible, but not probable, a bad cartridge.
For a quick fix, switch the amplifier to "mono" and then run all the speakers to the working channel.
In the meantime, if you're handy, try switching the speaker leads and such and see if you can isolate the problem.

Old Technics turntable got a buzzing sound


sounds like the input to your hifi is a line level input.to use an old turntable you need a phono pre amp to make it work.try maplins or a local independent hifi shop.

Troubleshoot auxiliary equipment


There is no Phono input on your JVC.

What TT are you trying to hook up? If it's a traditional one you would need a preamplifier to boost the tiny signal from the cartridge to a suitable level for the AUX to use.

If you have an old traditional receiver with a Phono section hanging around you could rig something up between it and your JVC.

Plug the TT into Phono on the old receiver. Run RCA cables from any Tape REC output to the AUX. Done.
