Question about Audio Players & Recorders

NSM Hit120 Jukebox.

Thanks for the info. it now selects and attempts to play, but as soon as the tone arm rests on the record, it immediately rejects and places the record back in the rack and the player tracks back to its' park position. You were spot on with your description of the encoder, so I have every confidence that you have extensive knowledge of this Juke. Thanks again for your interest and help.

    Thanks for your input, but this machine doesn't have an opto sensor on the tone arm. Instead it has a small magnet on the bottom of the tone arm which activates a reed switch when the tone arm magnet gets close to it at the end of the record play. Have temporarily disabled the reed switch by cutting one of the two wires attached to it, but no difference. It still rejects.

    Hope you can help.

There is an opto sensor the gets blocked when the tone arm is at the end of the song. It looks like a black u mounted on a circuit board. The flag that interupts the sensor is on the tone arm. The opto must be dirty so it thinks it's at the end of the song and continues to the unload sequence dispite the tone arm having just started playing.

Have a Rockola Model 481. Arm swings over when record drops but as soon as it swings over to start position it resets.

There are a couple things that could do would be if the reject bottom was stuck in or the wiring going to it shorted out, take an ohm meter and make sure there isn't a low resistance across it..The other thing I can think of is the reject switch on the tone arm is closed or out of adjustment and thinks the tone arm is at the end of the record so it rejects as soon as the needle sits down on the record

I have a Wurlitzer one more time. vinyl record jukebox.. I moved ( or turned) the turn arm forward to clean behind it and now the records will start to play and return to the changer. How do I adjust it.

Look up underneath the mechanism. You've moved the tone arm with respect to the bracket beneath it (which closes the trip switch). Select a record...turn the machine off...then look up under whilst someone moves the tone arm and you will see what it is attched to. If you are lucky you can hold that tight and gently move the arm back the other way a bit.

there's another switch inside/right near that encoded that clicks when the record is loaded. If loading/scrolling motor never stops during load unload i'd look there

NSM Hit120 Jukebox circa 1970s. Fails to select and play.

Sounds like the encoder on the mech. It's the black gear on the lower right that rotates through the box with the wires soldered to it. (right next to the white gear that makes the whole unit go left to right.) It uses an optical sensor to count the holes in the wheel/gear. It's not registering either because of the wiring or more likely gunk inside the unit blocking the optical sensor.

Wurlitzer 1800 jukebox, plays record but at end the arm does not lift so record does not reject until I press the reset button and then it works.

If the normal cancel button is working then take a look at the tone arm trip switch, which probably just needs adjusting. You can test this by flicking it with your finger when a record is playing. If it works it just needs adjusting to trip at the right place on the record.
The trip switch is located behind the fat end of the cobra tone arm on the back side of the arch, so you get to it by taking the machine back door off.
