I have cross-referenced most of the Wurlitzer 200A transistors to off-the-shelf replacement types. You can find the list at http://www.bustedgear.com/res_Wurlitzer_200A_transistors.html

If this is the kind of organ with the wire sticking out of the key that makes contact with the bus bar to create the note you will have to make sure that key is operating the same as adjacent keys. The busbars have to be clean and the contact wires have to be clean. Sometimes when cleaning the wires they will spring out of place and not make contact with the appropriate bus bars. Check that key against the rest and see what you find. Hope this helps.

The organ is basically a harmonica gated by keys. It has reeds and a fan.
I would open it up and clean everything. It is possible a mouse has gotten in there and they stink including their messes for quite a while.
You might need to lube the fan.

SOURCE: Re: Wurlitzer Digital Home Organ
If you have it apart, look in the area of where the power cord goes in. It would help me if you could mention the model number of the organ.The capacitors are in the same area as a fuse would be. The capacitors smooth and filter the A.C. power after the power goes into the power transformer and is then converted to D.C. to run the components. A fuse could be in the A.C. line or in the D.C. line depending on what it is designed to protect. With a model number we could do a search for a schematic and have a look at the most likely problem spots. The schematics for older analog organs are getting hard to find for free but a newer digital one may be easier. Let me know how you make out. Here is an interesting article that may give you some clues:http://www.theatreorgans.com/hammond/keng/kenhtml/wurlitzer%20organs%20by%20frank%20pugno.htm Here is another link with info:http://www.combo-organ.com/spares_and_repairs.htm#Electrolytics Let me know if this helps.
