This unit needs a service visit. It may be a common problem with that model but to me it sound like a power supply issue as when you play a disc more power is used to rotate motors and move the sled. This is indicating to you that it is in a weakened condition and will soon fail more significantly. The problem may be as little as a solder joint or a defective Filter capacitor which is common in some models of equipment.
The button you need is the Auto Cue button, which is to the left of the top display. Press and hold to turn auto cue off, which puts the player into continuous mode. This button is also the Time Mode button.
I seem to be having the same problem and all signs point to the serial control board board Pt# 0046630 under the player. The symptoms with mine were randomly cutting off songs about 20 sec after song start and returning disc to carrier. It started mostly when juke was first turned on (cold) and then progressed to all the time and now display on cd board is dark only randomly coming to life then dead again. power on the sub transformer is good and when it comes to life player works well. I am sending the board to be repaired.
With regards to your problem with the Rowe Ami 100 cd jukebox.
Do you have a manual, if not I suggest you buy a printer manual or one on CD and refer to the Programming and Installation section.
In order for the jukebox to know about the cd's that are installed in the jukebox it has to initialize all or the changed cd's that have been replaced within the jukebox.
Put the jukebox into the Service Mode (the service mode should appear on the display)
Type 3 to select the Initialize sub menu
Type 0 and full initialize will appear on the display
Press Popular to start the initialization
Place the jukebox service switch into the normal mode
Initiazation will take around 30 minutes to complete.
this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.
Spoke with "Doctor Jukebox" from Folsom, CA about a similar problem I had. You can find him
I did NOT have the "2222" display issue.
Root cause: The laser isn't "seeing" the CD and interprets inability to
see as being the end of the track, therefore, puts the CD back into the
1) Clean the lens. Be careful to use an appropriate lens cleaning
solution. The lens is made of plastic and may cloud up if a harsh
solution is used. Use a Q-tip dipped into the cleaning solution and
gently clean the lens using a side-to-side motion, not a front-to-back
motion. Wait for a bit until the lens is completely dry, then try
playing a CD. (note: this fixed the problem for me)
If that doesn't work...
2) Replace the laser module. It's easy to remove with a torx. Be
gentle when disconnecting and reconnecting the ribbon cable and/or other
connections so you don't bend the leads. Laser modules cost a few
hundred dollars, so try Solution 1) above before replacing the module.
the most likely problem is a weak or failing optical pickup. try a cleaning disc first there may be dust on the lens. do not use any liquid to clean the lens. remember this is an optical system if it can't focus properly or "see well" it can't read.
