Either a bad connection somewhere, or one channel in your amplifier is out.

Before you try anything else, switch the amp from 'stereo' to 'mono.' If the speakers come on, your amp is good and you simply have a bad connection somewhere between the amplifier and cartridge (thing that holds the stylus"needle"). Or, possible, but not probable, a bad cartridge.
For a quick fix, switch the amplifier to "mono" and then run all the speakers to the working channel.
In the meantime, if you're handy, try switching the speaker leads and such and see if you can isolate the problem.

    Yes, I forgot to mention something a little dirty. Often just sliding the bass and treble and stereo/mono switches, etc. a few times or wiggling/tightening the speaker connections will do the trick.
    Glad it came back to life for you.

What causes a Rockola jukebox not to index?


I might be wrong about this but check inside for a switch marked Scan/off/play inside at the front of the mech. It should be in play position. Also check any circuit breakers and reset them on the upper back of the machine (inside). They look like the clicky end of a ball point pen.
After that I am stuck.

Been given a grade 5 Rockola 160 433, need a copy of the service manual


Contact the folks at www.victoryglass.com and tell them the make and model of your jukebox. They will have the manual set for around $50. Also, they bought out the entire Rockola factory parts inventory. So if by chance you needed Rockola parts, they would have it.

How do you set the Rockola 480 to free play?


For free play on Rock-Ola 480. Open your jukebox, on the right,you will see a large metal box marked Profit Setter. In this box are Sections A, B and D. In section D, you will see very small white buttons on a pink background. Push ALL of the buttons in section D to the left with a pen.It will play for free until changed. For money, put it back like it was. It will also play all songs automatically. If you wanna know that, e-mail to varnett1@woh.rr.com

Jukebox Rock-ola 464 wont turn on


Hi sullysfarm,

Here are the details of an action on Ebay for a 464 manual in the USA.
Rock-Ola 464 Jukebox Service Manual Item number: 220350796639

With regards to your jukebox not working after transportation I would check to see that you have not caught any power switches that are on the back of the jukebox (these may be in a recess) or check all the plug in connectors for a loose connection.

Trying to hook new amp to old jukebox??? 1963 Rockola


Hi Randy,

I take it that the output from the jukebox is mono (only a signal and screen cable) and the connection to the amplifier is a phono plug. You could make up a cable by using a phono inline socket and two phono plugs. I would think that you could purchase one from your local electronic store. If you make one up it should be made using a screened cable.
