Rock ola 460

I have a rock Ola 460 jukebox from 1975 - until yesterday it played just fine. the problem is the prematurely rejects the record. It will pick the record from the carousal, place it on the platter, the arm will come over to the record, BUT as soon as the needle touches the record it rejects and places the record back in the carousel. it is almost like I am pressing the reject button on the back of the machine BUT I am not

If the normal cancel button is working then take a look at the tone arm trip switch, which probably just needs adjusting. You can test this by flicking it with your finger when a record is playing. If it works it just needs adjusting to trip at the right place on the record.
The trip switch is located behind the fat end of the cobra tone arm on the back side of the arch, so you get to it by taking the machine back door off.

SOURCE: CAn I hook up externa speakers for the jute box Rock Ola 480

That depends if you have skp out or a head phone jack .If so the RCA out jack would
have to go to the input of your amp.

or the head phone jack could directley
drive a small set speakers , the 1/4 or 1/8
head phone jack plug wire from a old
pair of head phones would be strip and
wired to small external spk , or driectly
to the auido amp But keep the volume
on the Rock Ola very low if you
chose the latter ,as not to over drive
your amp.

There is a sensor which detects the start position of the carousel and if it isnt working it goes round forever. (Although I am not very familiar with this box)

It won't reject because it needs to have the gripper arm complete the motion before the microswitches on the cam are in the right position.
It has either seized up or blown a fuse or both.

Rock-ola 448 jukebox skipping how to repair


The stylus might be worn or of the wrong type. A simple tone arm needs a round stylus and if an elliptical type (intended for a long S-shaped tone arm) has been fitted by mistake it could skip.

If nothing is wrong there, the remaining conclusion is either the mechanism is maladjusted or the tonearm bearing has a tight spot. In that case the tone arm should be removed and the shaft examined under strong magnification and any irregularities carefully removed, eased, blended in using a very fine abrasive (12,000 - 20,000 grit) and then ensuring the shaft and bearing is thoroughly clean apply a little very light machine oil and reassemble and readjust the playing weight...

Rock-ola cd jukebox bubbles wont bubble?????


They are probably made like the old Christmas tree bubble lights. These had a solution, I think it might have been calcium chloride and they were heated at the bottom end of the tube by an incandescent lamp that ran pretty hot. The lamps in your unit might be burnt out. I remember we had to tap the tubes lightly to get them to start bubbling sometimes.
