Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

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.

Will load record arm will come down and start to play then rejects it

On some turntables, there is an adjustment for this. Typically, you turn a small screw to tell the turntable when to return the tone arm to its rest. You might have to look underneath the unit to find it.

How can I stop the tone arm from returning too early on smaller records?

The adjustment for auto return position is normally at the tone arm base on the left side under a rubber grommet. Use a flat blade screw driver to move adjustment screw, then test. Keep fine tuning until arm lifts at desired position. Cheers John. Stylus City NZ

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249

Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John.

How do you shift to play records. When I turn to phono on dial it turns the unit off. I have a radio cd player with CR24 turntable

Move the tone arm off the rest on to the record and it will start to spin. There is a switch that turns the player off when the tone arm is on the rest.

Jukebox makes records skip.

Most skip problems are caused by a worn stylus or not enough pressure being applied to the stylus. This being caused by the weight on the end on the tone arm being off place.

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.
