Rowe AMI Laserstar CD100C jukebox not playing the cds.

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?

Hi,

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

SOURCE: My cd rowe ami jukebox is stuck in scan/transfer mode

Hello,

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.

DOCTOR-FIXCAN MAKE A COPY FROM MY ORIGINAL. MOST LIKELY YOUR PROBLEM IS THE LIGHT THAT COUNTS AS EACH CD PASSES. LOOK BETWEEN CD CAROUSEL, AND CD GRIPPER ARM. A CD MAY HAVE HIT THE METAL LEAVER THAT THE LAMP,
IS ATTACHED TO. YOU HAVE TO GET DOWN 0N IT WITH A MIRROR TO SEE THE LAMP, AND SEE IF THE METAL LEAVER IS NOT BENT. FOR COPY OF WURLITZER MANUAL, A CD RECORD PROBABLY HIT THE LAMP. 636 2273300. NAME IS SEYMOUR LEVITT COMPANY NAME IN-HOME JUKEBOX REPAIR. SEYLEVITT@JUNO.COM THIS IS A COMMON REPAIR PROBLEM. GOOD LUCK.

This is a laser unit fault or the pcb under the laser unit. Both are expensive.

SOURCE: I have an 1991 ami rowe juke box -laserstar

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.

Code to initialize ami rowe jukebox


For full initialization, in service mode, press 3 to enter init. sub menu, type 0 for full initialization. Press popular, then put switch in normal position and initialization will begin. You can still select and play discs while initialization is in progress, providing you select from cd's already finished. The machine will continue initialization after selections are finished playing.

I have a rowe ami laserstar and cannot remember how to initialize when adding a new disk. Can you please help.


Hello,

Place the service switch into service, SERVICE MODE should be displayed on the keyboard display.
Type 31 and the display will show PROGRAM INIT enter the CD numbers that you have changed and press the popular button after each number.
After you have entered all the CD changes place the service switch back to normal and the initialization will begin.

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.
You need to send in your boards to a Rowe Ami specialist in the USA you would contact :-

How do I slow the speed of the 45s on my rowe r-92 jukebox .The records are playing a little too fast


Hi,

The turntable motor on the jukebox range of R-84 to R-93 is none adjustable.
If you are in the USA then the motor operates on 60hz but in Europe it would have to be on 50hz to do this a different pulley is used.

The Rowe Ami part numbers are as followes:-

30791907 Turntable Motor Assembly 60hz
30791908 Turntable Motor Assembly 50hz
21817801 Motor Pulley 60hz
21817802 Motor Pulley 50hz

These can be ordered from a Rowe Ami dealer or you could try www.victoryglass.com
