Question about Wurlitzer Jukebox 1015 One More Time 100-Disc CD Changer

It doesn't Light Up

The lights on the left hand side won't light up. I am not sure if it is a fuse or the bulb. Actually the lower left hand side and the right bubblers aren't operating. I just received this Wurlitzer OMT CD Special Ipod Edition.

What do I do

    Just got done restoring one of these, so. Basically all the bubble tubes have heaters at the bottom of them. Firs thing is you will need to examine the wiring going to all the heaters that are not bubbling. All of the heaters are wired in parrallel. You will need to unsolder 1 lead of each at a time. There are 2 wires per heater, then measure the heater with an ohm meter. The resistance is 120 ohms. If they are open, then your going to need to very very carefully remove the bottom color cylinder motors, and then remove the 2 long screws and 1 inch standoffs that hold the heater assemblies. Now in order to remove the bubbler tubes and may I caution you that they are very easily broken. And very expensive to replace. But basically very very slowly turn and wiggle each tube base up and out of the heater. Be sure to p[ace a blanket or carpet under the door area. Now with great caution look up at the top of the tubes there are s small metal wire clips held in by short phillips screws, You need to remove the screws one at a time whilst holding the tube and gentl lower the tube place the screw aside. Now carefully slide the metal clip down the tube an inch or 2. Now you can get the tubes out and into a safe place to be later reinstalled. Now you can safely do the other tube same way, and then after all this you can finally carefully remove the 2 heaters out of the unit to fix them. The first thing you will see is that the heater can be taken out by bending the 2 metal tabs on the bottom of the plastic holder, and pull them off. Then take a screwdriver push it up into the orange rubber sleever, and rotate the screwdriver to help expand the rubber sleeve and slide it off. The heater is a 120 ohm wirewound 10 watt or more resistor. I was not able to locate a square one like the factory type BUT i was able to sub in a round ceramic type, and bend the clip into shape to fit the replacement. Slide some heat shrink tubing or strip out some wires using the wire insulation slide over the ends to insulate and prevent the wires to short out. Then I looped the end of the wire resistor, and slid the rubber sleeve back on. Put the heater back into the slot on the plastic holder and bend the tabs back into place with a small flat blade screwdriver. Assembly is the reverse, after re soldering wiring, place the holder back into place, put back the long screws with the sleeves. You will not fully tighten them yet, instead reinstall the bubbler tubes and gently work them back down into the heaters, They just need to be snug fit but never force them. Once back in place squeeze the metal wires and carefully slide them back up into place, and secure carefully with the short screws, And then position the heaters to line up the tubes and carefully tighten them into their place. Then is the job of putting the motors back and screw them into place, and then putting the color wheels and fixtures back into place. A lot of what I call fenagling to get it all lined up again. And lube the motors and gears at the same time.

If the problem is nor related to just one bulb as it sounds like it isnt then most likely you have a fuse blown or a defective lamp or 24v circuit. Check out www.flippers.com as they have the OMT manual in pdf format assuming you dont already have it.

Hi, I have a 2016 Nissan Sentra. When the lights are switched on, only the left rear tail light doesn't come on. Brake lights work, indicator, hazards and reverse. I've checked the fuses cabin and engine...


All parking lights are on the same circuit. If there is no voltage at the bulb socket, trace the wires. Either the ground or park light wire is broken.

Alpha Romeo 156 My Left hand indicator light stays on continually, does not flash. and when I turn the hazard light switch on both indicators continually glow.


Generally speaking, symptoms of a bad or failing turn signal bulb are usually the culprit...in your case, either it's the front left or rear bulb. Varies for different vehicle makes...common signs include:
  1. turn signal light staying on solid
  2. or blinking very fast
  3. or either sides of the bulbs stop blinking altogether.
To test this, make sure you reconnect everything you disconnected.
Turn the left signal light on; go to the front of the vehicle, is the turn signal bulb illuminated? If it lights up, even though it is not blinking obviously the bulb is okay. If it doesn't, replace it- problem solved. You'll do the same procedure for the rear turn signal Is that lit up? If not replace the bulb and the problem is solved.
Another common failure is when the turn signal blinks really fast, same procedure as mentioned above.
If both bulbs for the left side and right side illuminate but don't blink, the problem is in the steering column turn signal switch.
If the left or right side blinkers don't work properly at all...then check the integrated hazard warning/turn signal flasher relay- that may be defective; again, that's usually the case if both sides of the signal light don't work.
If you are blowing any fuses related to the flasher system, you have an electrical overload in the turn signal circuitry.

With the condition of the screws you should check to make sure there is a good connection to the lower bulbs for both power and ground.

I have lost both front right and rear right lights on my peugeot 307 SW 2005


Check ground and 12v supply for all the affected bulbs. Check fuse with proper test light. Is there a separate relay for right and left lights?
If there is, try switching them.

Right hand brake light not working vp commodore.bulb has been replaced but still no go


I assume the left hand brake light works.
First check that you have replaced it with the correct bulb. Make sure it is the same as the left hand brake light bulb.
Sounds silly but different bulbs will fit the same socket, but not work.
Make sure no one will push the brake pedal and see that contacts are clean and there is spring pressure behind the contact in the socket. If all the above is okay then you probably have a wiring problem.
Either the earth wire, usually black, is damaged or not connected to earth (body work) .
Or the power wire from left hand side light is cut or damaged. Check the colour of the wire on the left hand brake light. It will be the same for the right side.
If you have a trailer plug follow the wire from it back to where it connects to the cars original wiring. The problem could be at that connection.
Good luck
