Question about Wurlitzer Jukebox CD Player
I have a weird sound problem which is only apparent on some tracks. E.g.... Sing baby sing will sound like Ssssssing baby sssssing, lyrics with a high frequency 's' are not crisp although not all tracks distort like this.I think this is called Sibilance. It is not the CD,s as tried them in a CD player and I have had the woofers re coned and tested. The distortion comes from the woofers not tweeters, it is annoying as the sound is otherwise perfect. Thanks for any help, Steve

As far as I know the CD player for a machine of that age was a CDM 12. Your diagnosis is right but the same symptom can be caused by the control pcb underneath the cd player (you can see the led display to the right of the player. That's the control pcb). But generally it is the cd player itself.
However, you should also know that a similar thing happens when the laser eye is dirty from dust. But it doesn't sound like that to me. If it is dust the cd spins properly...stops....spins again....and then gets put back. If it spins as if it is having problems spinning it is usually the laser unit.
It's sensitive to static so touch any part of the metal of the jukebox that is definitely shiney metal to discharge yourself. To remove it you undo the four posi screws at each corner of the oblong unit. It's about the size of a large pack of cigarettes. Lift it up about an inch and you will see three plugs going into the sides. One on one side and two on the other. They just pull off with a bit of wiggling. (make a note where they go). While you are there take note that there are two loose metal spacers that the unit sits on, on the far two corners where the screws came out. They can easily get knocked off when you lift up the unit.
Transfer the black metal bracket piece on the top, to the other unit .....it's just two screws. And replace in the reverse order.
Make sure when you put the new unit back that you have the two metal spacers in place or it wont sit down correctly.

I've just had a look at the link you posted. That's not the right unit. Electronically it is but not the base it is attached to is not for a Wurlitzer unit. It's a rock-ola (I think). If you are in the Uk contact Sound Sense Electronics. They will sort it out for you.

Yes, you can buy an iPod docking bay and background music adaptor and play your iPod throught the jukebox. If a CD is played it over rides the iPod music until it has finished playing. It is called and iPod docking bay kit.

All of the one more time jukeboxes used the Phillips CD player, they started with the CDM3 then the CDM4 and CDM12 etc.
Around 1993 it would have been the CDM3/4.
You need to identify which Decoder it is using in the jukebox or you need a kit that replaces the CD player and Decoder.
