Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Hi..I have been following your threads. very informative. I have a Ami Rowe R-84 jukebox. It was working fine and I put in storage for 8 months. Now tone arm will not move after selection and the selector will pick it up straight away. The turntable also will not move. Is the tone arm break suppose to have a break is in the rod? I am lost?? Thanks, Jacqueline

    My apologies I gave you the wrong model number. Its R-82B Ami Rowe Jukebox. I had tried the weight earlier, that isn't the solution. The arm will start but the record pickup will take the record and return it to the magazine,the arm goes no further.

Hi there,

You need to balance the tone arm, do this by setting the tone arm weight to zero. Then screw the tone arm back so that it is perfectly balanced (the tone arm is leveled and completely parallel to the turntable, do this without a vinyl on the turntable). Then mark this as zero on the weight measurer. Then put a vinyl on the turntable and slowly turn the weight to the specified weight for the needle. If not know use somewhere between 2.5 or 3 which are usually average you should be able by the difference in sounds frequencies, which weight pressure sounds the best. After this set the anti-skate corresponding to the weight of the tonearm.

Good Luck!!

    Ok... It seems that there is some problem with the motor of that jukebox, check the RPM of that motor and try again.

How do I slow the speed of the 45s on my rowe r-92 jukebox .The records are playing a little too fast


Hi,

The turntable motor on the jukebox range of R-84 to R-93 is none adjustable.
If you are in the USA then the motor operates on 60hz but in Europe it would have to be on 50hz to do this a different pulley is used.

The Rowe Ami part numbers are as followes:-

30791907 Turntable Motor Assembly 60hz
30791908 Turntable Motor Assembly 50hz
21817801 Motor Pulley 60hz
21817802 Motor Pulley 50hz

These can be ordered from a Rowe Ami dealer or you could try www.victoryglass.com

My cd rowe ami jukebox is stuck in scan/transfer mode


Hello,

You say you do not have the digital display lite up, have you checked all of the breakers on the power supply?
If not do so. Rowe Ami jukeboxes are very prone to dry joints (cold joints in the USA) this is cracking around the soldered pin on the connections to the boards.
If you can solder correctly then check out the printed circuit board on the power supply. I would retest and see if the display now lights after correcting a fault on the power supply.
If that has not made any difference then proceed to the Mechanism Control Board and the Central Control Computer (CCC) and check again for dry joints.

If you can not solder with any confidence then send in your boards to a Rowe Ami specialist for testing/repair.

Song Programming


Hello,

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.

Have a Rowe Ami mmcd-1 jukebox but having keypad problems


Hello,

Rowe Ami jukeboxes are prone to dry joints (called cold joints in the USA), this is cracking around the soldered connection pins that connect the wiringing to the circuit boards. If you can solder correctly then I would advise you to check all of the boards for cracking around any of the pins on the boards. So check out the following:-
Power supply board
CCC
Mechanism control/decoder
Keyboard

I would check out the Keyboard/Display the display board controls the title flip buttons.
I have seen a nuber of brand new display units for sale in the USA on Ebay for very little money.
When these were first made they were an arm and a leg. If you bought the combined unit that was put into the HML hideaways you could refit into your jukebox.

If You are not good at soldering then my advice would be send the boards to a Rowe Ami specialist for testing/repair.
