Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Wurlitzer troubleshooting I recently acquired and have almost finished repairing a 1936 Wurlitzer 412 Simplex. I am having a problem with microphonics, and from what I understand this is a common problem with this particular model. However I know they can work without having this problem, and I can't help but wonder if there is some sort of fix I am missing that will not detract from the value of a wonderful old machine. I have replaced several capacitors, checked to ensure everything is tightened and secured properly, but cant seem to get rid of the problem. Do you have any suggestions?

SOURCE: Wurlitzer 3600 Jukebox turntable problem

The 3600 has a hub that is supposed to play dinked and undinked records. They had 33rpm and 45 rpm records back then, so to change the record speed the undinked (small hole ) records pushed down the hub flat when it landed on it, which changed the gearing. When a dinked (big hole) record lands on it falls onto the larger part of the hub. So if the hub is down and stuck there that's your problem. After the hub has been pushed flat (because of a small hole record) it is supposed to rise up again when the record is returned to the carousel. Have a look under the turn table and push up the centre rod.

It can only be replaced by another one, but they aren't easy to find. Try who sell parts in the UK.

SOURCE: Wurlitzer 1015 OMT Disc spins, then stops....

Spoke with "Doctor Jukebox" from Folsom, CA about a similar problem I had. You can find him on craigslist.

I did NOT have the "2222" display issue.

Root cause: The laser isn't "seeing" the CD and interprets inability to see as being the end of the track, therefore, puts the CD back into the carousel.


1) Clean the lens. Be careful to use an appropriate lens cleaning solution. The lens is made of plastic and may cloud up if a harsh solution is used. Use a Q-tip dipped into the cleaning solution and gently clean the lens using a side-to-side motion, not a front-to-back motion. Wait for a bit until the lens is completely dry, then try playing a CD. (note: this fixed the problem for me)

If that doesn't work...

2) Replace the laser module. It's easy to remove with a torx. Be gentle when disconnecting and reconnecting the ribbon cable and/or other connections so you don't bend the leads. Laser modules cost a few hundred dollars, so try Solution 1) above before replacing the module.

What is the age of my Wurlitzer piano serial number 192157?

Free Piano Age Research Look here. It looks like it was built between 1939 and 1940. Go down the page til you find Wurlitzer; after 1937: The year built is found by finding the serial number 192157, which would be between 180000 and 195000. That would make it having been built between 1939 and 1940. Hopefully, that's correct.
