Your Seeburg LPC1 or LPC480 is well overdue for an electrical overhaul.
It most likely can no longer write selections into the memory, or read them out if they're being written in. No way to tell from here. A jukebox that old probably needs to have the units underneath rebuilt with new capacitors. Their lifespan is usually about 25 years, so no surprises there. This is common for all old jukeboxes. Google Vern Tisdale or Bill Bickers for the rebuild kits. You need to solder and read a schematic to do the work, or find someone who can, but the actual parts are not all that expensive.

I have a LPC 480 Seeburg Jukebox that scans, pick up the record, the needle touches the record, then returns the record to the carriage without playing. What can I do?


Try reading this, basically the fault can be in the mech, the amp or trip switches.

Can weak tube be cause of jukebox not picking up records


1> be sure the service switch is in the PLAY position.
2> It's impossible to determine if the selections are not being written in to memory, or read out from the memory. it could be either.
You most likely have to have the control center looked at, common with a machine this old. The capacitors in your control unit on the back door have probably gone bad, which they do after 25-40 years. Your jukebox is from 1960, so it's time to have both the amplifier and control unit rebuilt. Not what you wanted to hear, but it has to be done. If you're handy and can solder and read a schematic, you can buy the kits on eBay or do a Google search for Bill Bickers or Vern Tisdale. Both sell the rebuild kits.(Feb 27, 2010)

Wailing sound when 1971 seeburg juke box is started


I amnot very familiar with Seeburgs but the trip switch activates at the end of the record playing and THAT mutes the amp. The amp should also be muted until the tone arm lands on the record. So I would suggest the problem is in the amp.

Mechanism will not pick up records


Hi,

Check out the tormat on your jukebox. It runs almost the full length of the mechanism. On the tormat is the A and B side contacts and a ground rail. You will see that on the mechanism is a arm that runs over these contacts on it it has very fine wire links (similar to those on motor brushes) these can become disconnected and may require being resolderd back into place.

I have a 1972 Seeburg that misses plays, rejects plays before they are done and will go all the way to the right and thinks it has picked up a record and get stuck there. Thanks in advance! David


Possible causes.
_Black and gray box connections are probably dirty.
_Keypad circuit board dirty (yes, this makes the jukebox make incorrect selections)
_Mis-adjusted end-of-record switch.
_In addition, a manual would help so you can go over the adjustments section to check all those and then, on top of everything else, it probably needs a lube job.
Seeburgs are the most complicated of the 45 jukes, so it might be time to call in a professional if you're not comfortable tinkering.
You can screw one up pretty bad if you aren't familiar with them.
