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

Do you have the numbers off the transistors? i can look up the data sheets and pick a suitable or improved replacement.

What is the age of my Wurlitzer piano serial number 192157?


Free Piano Age Research Look here. It looks like it was built between 1939 and 1940. Go down the page til you find Wurlitzer; after 1937: The year built is found by finding the serial number 192157, which would be between 180000 and 195000. That would make it having been built between 1939 and 1940. Hopefully, that's correct.

How do I connect my roland piano 5500 to an amp


On the rear of the piano there will be two 1/4" jacks labeled Output Left and Right. One will be labled Mono as well. If you are using a stereo amp, use both, and if a mono amp use just the mono output. If your amp is a guitar type, connect a shielded cable with 1/4" phone jacks such as you'd use with an electric guitar from these jacks to your amplifier. If you are useing a home stereo amp, you will need a cable with 1/4" phone jacks from the piano to RCA phono jacks on the amp end.

How do I change electolytic coupling caps for a Roland FP-8 Piano?


Replacing the electrolytic capacitors in this keyboard would require you to be somewhat experienced in electronic soldering, especially the surface mount electrolytics. You should be able to find how-to videos on YouTube if you are curious. You also probably do not need a service manual. The values of the capacitors should be printed directly on them. Replace them all. Replacements can be ordered from Mouser. BUT, I suggest at least bringing in a friend that has experience with these types of repairs. These circuit boards are not designed for inexperienced soldering!

What caused my wurlitzer model no. 625 to stop playing after removing the ear phone plug I had inserted? I get electric static when turned on so I know it's getting electricity.


Well if the removing the earphone plug and the unit no longer working aren't a co-incidence? Then perhaps the earphone socket has faulted and cut off the speakers, output. You see in an earphone socket there is an additional set of contacts, that makes & breaks the line to the speaker and routes it to the earphones, often these contacts will stay open, after the plug is withdrawn. and thus stop any output from going to the speakers. Or sometimes the solder join on the PCB can break and the effect is the same.
The only way to tell is to examine the unit and check this out. As mooted before though, i do wonder if this isn't a co-incidence, and the fault is to do with something else, often these units fail in the area of the output amplifier IC's. The unit really needs to be put through the troubleshooting procedures to exactly tell. If one was to attempt a DIY, then at the least one would need to obtain a service manual, for these steps and to obtain the parts numbers to buy any spare parts.

Above is a place to assist you with a service manual, should you wish to DIY? However, Wurlitzer's are a complex device, and my professional recommendation is to get a "Quote" for any prospective repairs, from a Wurlitzer repairer.

I am attempting to repair a Kustom K100A-1 guitar amp. I found one shorted output transistor, an RCA 36892, which crosses with a NTE 130. Do I need to replace all 5 outputs with matched transistors, or can...


I don't have a schematic for this unit, however good design would not demand matched transistors.
If a transistor has shorted, USUALLY mating transistors have been damaged. I am not sure how "5" outputs are configured as usually there is symetry and an even number. If the "5" are all on one side and there are mating trnsistors of another number, then likely there is damage to more components and probably back one stage in the drivers or even farther.
Hint: when re-powering this after repair, put a 100 Watt light bulb in series with the power into the unit to act as a limiting fuse that resets without driving heavy current into the unit causing more damage due to failed parts that were not eliminated in the first reapir.
