Question about Wurlitzer Crosley WR18 Mini-Bubbler CD Player CD Player

1 Answer

Remote control does not work with unit

My Wurlitzer CD player cannot operate by the remote control. The player
will go on by manually pressing the button inside. There is radio only
available that way. The bubble light will go on.
I have replaced the batteries in the remote with two different sets & still
it is not working.

    I have the same problem. The remote control does not work. I suspect this is caused by battery corrosion in the remote. The Logitech Harmony remote control series, with their data base of components, is supposed to control the WR-18. I haven't checked this out, but have a Harmony 880 on order for my home theater system.

The only way you can be sure is to test it on another machine or try another remote control unit. Not very helpful I know.

Where to order a brand new remote for my Wurlitzer Jukebox wr-18

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability.
Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site Check this site too. Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.
Type in the brand name of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window, and press enter to get all related posts. It will make surf easy.

1. Turn power on using either the remote or power button located behind tuner door.

2. Push CD / RADIO BUTTON (25) to enable FM tuner.

3. Turn FM dial to desired station.

Arrange the volume of your jukebox without using the remote

In earlier models you plugged either the remote box OR the volume control box into the same socket on the amp. If you still have the volume control box simply plug it in where the remote is plugged in.

Volume will just blast real loud

If you have a remote control , unplug the lead from the volume control (at the back of the machine) and instead of it plugging into the Inrfa Red control unit in the base of the cabinet, plug it straight into the amp volume input.
There has been problems with the remote that does what you are suggesting so this will prove the point.

1015 OMT CD Infrared remote control problem.

The fault you describe is one I have seen before. Last time I saw it, it was caused by the remote control unit being faulty (the hand held bit). So if you changed the kit then you are still using the same remote hand held bit and getting the same fault.
I have never established if this works but try hitting the volume button and then threwing the remote into another room or wave it behind the wall of a doorway so the infrared has no direct line to the jukebox. If the volume doesn't continue to increase....that proves the point one way or another.
