I have a 1971 seeburg firestar jukebox - the zero (0) does not seem to work when you punch in the 3 numbers for the selection - so none of my selections that have zero in it do not play - also I do not have a key that works the lock on the back at the top -

    I have a 1971 Seeburg Jukebox. The records do not load when we try to play it. I have checked the magnet and it is in place. What other issue may be there?

Same key that operates the locks on the sides unlocks the top, but top might be sticky. Push down on it.
Order keys if you don't have them. It's key F291. GOOD locksmith can make it or order one off eBay.
Your jukebox is a USC2. Use that model number as a reference.
Keypad "0" contacts are probably dirty or broken, or the connectors to the keyboard or black and gray boxes might be loose or need cleaning. Circuit board might be dirty (YES! This is a common Seeburg issue). To clean it of check for broken contacts on the "0" key, you'll have to remove it and open it up. Putting it back together can be tricky. Be patient.
Worst case, you can install a replacement keyboard.

If you have someone come out, be SURE to have them give the jukebox a good lubrication. Seeburgs are complicated machines and need periodic lubrication.

Also, buy a manual. Jukebox repairmen don't usually have the manuals for your jukebox. Too many.

I have a 1971 SEEBURG MODEL USC2 "Bandshell"

Carosel doesnt turn on rowe ami r-82 jukebox


First check to make sure you are getting power to the drive system. If turntable is belt driven, check power to drive motor, then check the belt. Otherwise it is direct drive, which means the turntable is connected directly to ths motor and the motot will have to be replaced.

Counterweight on my technics 1200 wont catch to screw on. Threads inside the weight look fine but there seems to be a small "bump" on the under back side of the tone arm. This "bump" doesnt stick out as...


It doesn't screw on, it pushes on....

"With the tonearm locked in place, put the anti‐skate
dial on "0" and push the counterweight onto the rear of
the tonearm. Make sure that the numbers face to the
front of the turntable. Turn the weight until you feel it
"click" into place.

Unlock the tonearm from the rest, and move it
toward the middle, about one inch from the edge of the
platter. Hold the arm off the surface with your right
hand on the finger lift. Begin turning the counterweight
one way or the other, until the arm seems to just
"float".

As seen in the picture, the arm, when properly
floating, will not face up nor down.. it will stay
with the platter. It may take a few tries to get
correct. Lock the tonearm back on it's rest.

Holding the rear, silver, section of the counterweight
with one hand, use your other hand to turn JUST the
number ring. It doesn't matter which direction you turn
it, but you will want "0" to face up when you are done.

Using just one hand, turn the entire counterweight
(the silver part) COUNTERCLOCKWISE until the
recommended tracking force is achieved. New
cartridges will tell what the ideal number is. As a rule of
thumb, however, most "hi‐fi" cartridges track between
1 and 2 grams, while most DJ cartridges track between
3 and 5 grams.

Set the anti‐skate dial to coincide with the tracking
force... in other words, if the tracking force is 2 grams,
set the anti‐skate dial to "2". The exception is for DJ's
who scratch and back‐cue. Your anti‐skate must be left
on "0". "

Can weak tube be cause of jukebox not picking up records


1> be sure the service switch is in the PLAY position.
2> It's impossible to determine if the selections are not being written in to memory, or read out from the memory. it could be either.
You most likely have to have the control center looked at, common with a machine this old. The capacitors in your control unit on the back door have probably gone bad, which they do after 25-40 years. Your jukebox is from 1960, so it's time to have both the amplifier and control unit rebuilt. Not what you wanted to hear, but it has to be done. If you're handy and can solder and read a schematic, you can buy the kits on eBay or do a Google search for Bill Bickers or Vern Tisdale. Both sell the rebuild kits.(Feb 27, 2010)

Seeburg selectomatic 200 [has been stored in garage for 30 years ] all funtions work properly except it will only play record for about 1 second, then eject & go to next selected record & play for...


1. Check to see that the end of record switch is OK or not shorted, same with the reject button on the back and all associated connections.
2. THESE THINGS NEED OIL! The trip lever (just to the right of the tonearm) may not be resetting fast enough, or at all, due to gummy grease. Buy the manual (eBay - any service man will insist that you have it.). It will show you where to lubricate everything. NO 3-in-1 or paraffin based oils.

Sounds like it has a vibrato micro seiki dd 25


Hi, first thing you need to do is check your strobe lights , if you look near your power on/off you should notice a little guide with +6 0 -3.33 etc, set your pitch to 0 for instanceand watch the platter by the light on the on off switch, the big dots on the plater should stay stationary whilst the smaller dots above it and below it move around it, if the big dots don't stay still it may well be a problem with your pitch control,, these arent too hard to replace and arent that expensive
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRE6LvWrhbs
Is difficult for me to say without looking at them
But if it seems like your decks are holding pitch then it might be somthing more complicated and you might need to take it to your local technics repair centre, you can find this by typing in the name of your town / city and technics service/repair
Bare in mind that you can get a kind of warble when you leave the pitch fader really close to zero but not quite on zero and it wil flicker between 0 and +1
A useful resource is http://www.turntabletech.com/ have done a few services myself of info off this site
last thing dont get ripped off by the service centre, i.e paying £300 to repair a technics probs aint worth it when you could buy a refurb one for less.
Good luck

NSM Hit120 Jukebox circa 1970s. Fails to select and play.


Sounds like the encoder on the mech. It's the black gear on the lower right that rotates through the box with the wires soldered to it. (right next to the white gear that makes the whole unit go left to right.) It uses an optical sensor to count the holes in the wheel/gear. It's not registering either because of the wiring or more likely gunk inside the unit blocking the optical sensor.
