Wurlitzer Zodiac 3500. How do you change to free play

Purchased this jukebox (Wurlitzer Zodiac 3500) and started to restore it. Found out to my surprise that some previous owner with no knowledge tried to tinker with it. At the present I am stuck on how to convert it to free play. I have a service manual, but it doesn't mention anything about converting to free play. Thanks Martin Goings I think that to convert it to free play, you have to change the jumper wires inside the jukebox. I'm certain that someone out there has made this change and I would really appreciate some help.

Free play on these machines simply requires a jumper wire. Find two Molex pins and a bit of wire and jumper between pins 2 & 5 of the COIN MECHANISM SOCKET that is located on the CONTROL CENTER. You will first have to unplug the COIN MECHANISM from that socket. Or you can simply open the COIN REGISTER MECHANISM control unit and move the spring on the CANCEL WHEEL so the wheel is pulled the other way (counterclockwise) and the machine is then on permanent FREE PLAY.
Or you can simply adjust the KEY SWITCH so it is permanently closed.
A manual will be of assistance - I recommend you find one!

SOURCE: My Videos won't download onto my MP4 even after conversion

Ok i Just had the same problem but ithink i figued it out because i just put a video in their and it worked. So first of all u must ahve done a type-o because WMA is not a video format it means Windows Media Audio so i am assuming u said Windows Movie Video(WMV).
So what i did is I put the Resolution as 320x240 and put it in a folder in your desktop then drag the file and drop it try that and if u still have problems just ask.

    See if there is a pattern to the number keys that are not operational, such as, 1 through 5 good, and 6 through 9 not good. This would indicate a break in the daisy chain from switch to switch. If it is just random numbers, maybe some need cleaning or adjustments. The buzzing could be a number of things, maybe the latch solenoid or a ballast.

    I purchased a used Wurlitzer 1015, question When selecting number 51 is a code number 82 and does not play can you explain me this, what the problem is thanks

    The number of Cds in the carousel can be set on the Credit unit to stop it playing fresh air if for example you only have 50 Cds and not a whole 100. Sounds like yours is set to 50 so won't play anything over 50.
    I 'think' this is what you do.
    On the computer credit unit...
    Service Switch ON...Press LT button.
    Press 5 on the keyboard once.
    Enter 0000
    Service Switch off.
    Press LT or turn machine off/on.
