Question about Wurlitzer Jukebox 1015 One More Time 100-Disc CD Changer
When I attempted to play it for the first time, the carrier spun around and the arm picked up the CD and placed it on the playing mechanism. At this point, it wouldn't play the song so I surmised that I probably put the CDs in facing the wrong way. In a nutshell, it appears that it's locked up, confused, whatever. Is there a simple way to clear the memory...reset it? I think it's confused and simply needs to be reset and the CDs turned the opposite way in the carrier. Any help out there? Really would appreciate it.
Spoke with "Doctor Jukebox" from Folsom, CA about a similar problem I had. You can find him
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 carousel.
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.

FROM DOCTOR FIX
REMOVE ALL CD RECORDS== THERE IS NO NEEDLE IN A CD JUKEBOX,==
YOU ALSO SHOULD NOT HEAR ANY MUSIC IN THE BACK GROUND UNLESS, IT IS A 45 RPM RECORD PLAYING.
MAKE SURE WHAT YOU HAVE.
IF THIS IS A CD JUKEBOX, REMOVE ALL C Ds IN CD MAGAZINE.
PUT ONE CD INTO MAGAZINE, AND GET NUMBER TO THAT C D SHINE
SIDE TO THE LEFT.
THEN START THE MAGAZINE TO SPIN A REVOLUTION. THAT WILL CLEAR MEMORY.
MAKE THAT C D SELECTION ON KEYBOARD. I HAVE THE WURLITZER A COPY OF FACTORY ORIGINAL LITERATURE ON WURLITZER C D IF YOU NEED IT .
SEE IF A SONG STARTS TO PLAY. ALL MEMORY SHOULD BE CLEANED OUT. AND YOU SHOULD HAVE A FRESH START.

The correct way to load a OMT is with the labels facing towards you on the right hand side and away from you on the left. (Just make sure it plays them face down.)
If it spins...thinks about it...spins again and puts the CD back you have a laser fault.
