Seeburg b 100 jukebox carrier will not move to pick up records

Jukebox was working fine, then did not pick up some selections, now carrier will not do anything. carrier will move with manual switch but that is it. cleaned all contacts several times to no avail. talked to a jukebox repairman and he said a tube is probably the problem, very rarely do contacts go bad. A 2050 tube is the only tube that I see controls some of the contacts, don't know what the problem could be, would appreciate any help what might be the problem.

Inside the control center is a solenoid that's connected to some switches. These activate the mechanism to start scanning when a selection is made. You'll have to check that. Could be dirty or need lubrication. The do get sticky after years.
Don't lubricate the plunger, just he other small parts on the switch unit with some light Teflon lube, TRI-FLOW, any hardware store for about $4.
Whatever controls this solenoid might not be working, also. It should activate every time a selection is made, and deactivate after 2 scans of the mechanism.

Your juke is 58+ years old now, so it might be time to have some maintenance done if you're not comfortable tinkering with the innards. Be sure it gets a lube job, too. At least the oil cups on the side of the motor at the very least.

This is a free help response, for help on a SEEBURG JUKEBOX, that does not scan.
(1) Is there a 45 rpm record in the head that has not been rejected. (the meck will not scan.
(2) does the motor drive shaft turn?. Or is the drive shaft frozen? (Lack of lubrication)
(3) are ALL the little pins below PIN BANK push together, or is one or more moved to out side.
(scanning should happen if selection pins are moved out.)
That enough for now.

Preamps, turntable and 24bit / 96kHz recording


You need an ADC ( analogue to digital converter) along with a phono preamp to restore the RIAA correction to the turntable output. Check out musicdirect dot com for some examples. Alpha Design Labs makes a great one that retails at $500.

It is more than likely the audio output transistors have shorted out, test equipment will be needed to find out the extent of damage.

I have a LPC 480 Seeburg Jukebox that scans, pick up the record, the needle touches the record, then returns the record to the carriage without playing. What can I do?


Try reading this, basically the fault can be in the mech, the amp or trip switches.

Hello, My seeburg has a TSA1 amplifier with noise in the output signal. I can change all capacitors but i would like to know if its possible to put in a modern amplifier only to amplify the signal coming...


A TSA1 tells me you probably have an LPC-1 or LPC-480.

Any substitute amplifier must have a PHONO input as the Seeburgs have magnetic cartridges.
OR, you can use an amplifier with a line level input (AUX, TAPE, CD, VIDEO) but you'll have to buy a preamplifier to install between the cartridge or amplifier, easy enough to do.

In most cases, it's best to rebuild the original amplifier as the speakers are matched to them and might be of a weird impedance, like 12 or 16 ohms instead of the standard 8 ohms.

Technics SU-V98 No Sound


If I understand your posting correctly, the amp works using the Aux In connectors but not using the VCR1 even when VCR1 is selected correct? If that is the case, there is an internal electronic switching IC (TA9263 I think) that may be defective. This is not a complex repair and can be confirmed easily by any shop that does audio repair. They will trace the incoming signal with an oscilloscope to the IC and see nothing come out when VCR1 is selected. The IC costs less than $10.
