Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a 1990's era Rowe AMI Laserstar CD100C jukebox. It is not playing the cds. It picks them up, puts them on the turntable, spins for a few seconds, then puts them back in the magazine. Then it picks the same cd up again, goes through the same process and then goes on to a different cd - same thing. Sometimes it actually plays one, but more and more often they are not playing. Any suggestions?

Are you initalizing the CD's in your jukebox after you install them?
If so it should play all of the tracks.

You say you do not have the digital display lite up, have you checked all of the breakers on the power supply?
If not do so. Rowe Ami jukeboxes are very prone to dry joints (cold joints in the USA) this is cracking around the soldered pin on the connections to the boards.
If you can solder correctly then check out the printed circuit board on the power supply. I would retest and see if the display now lights after correcting a fault on the power supply.
If that has not made any difference then proceed to the Mechanism Control Board and the Central Control Computer (CCC) and check again for dry joints.
If you can not solder with any confidence then send in your boards to a Rowe Ami specialist for testing/repair.

I operate rowe cd 100 jukeboxes for a living, In the manual it will tell you what these error codes are, off the top of my head I know that one to mean either there is a problem with the inner or outter cam switch. these switches are located under what we call the transfer motor, there will be two of them look in your manual to see whether the error relates to the inner or outter cam switch. Inner being the one closest to the actual mechanism and outter being the one furthest from the mechanism. The switches are usually black but can be white and are about the size of an block ink/pencil eraser. You most likely can get the switch from a local electronics store I.E. radio shack.
