I have a similar problem with my late 1990's Wurlitzer OMT Juke Box. The Cd goes over to the laser and tries to play 4 times (every time/everyCD) and returns to the carousel. I have looked at the fuses but they seem OK?
Also the display defaults to 2222 when the unit is turned on. The correct CD is always selected and the number pad works. The display also (always) reads 47 when I select the R button. Do I have a dud of a Juke Box?
Thanks in advance,
When the disc is taken from the carousel and put on the player how long does it take for it from the time it is placed onto the player to being returned to the carousel? Also is the cd spinning when its on the player or not spinning at all. The answers to these questions should help in pinpointing the actual problem.

Unless you have specialized equipment to align the laser, do not try to change the laser. That being said, when I have problems with a CD juke that I track down to the player, I change the whole player (the silver unit about 4"x6"). Enco systems .net has new and rebuilt CDM-pro players. If it as older one, other places rebuild them. Enco has a list of player symptoms on their home page to determine if you need a player.
I seem to be having the same problem and all signs point to the serial control board board Pt# 0046630 under the player. The symptoms with mine were randomly cutting off songs about 20 sec after song start and returning disc to carrier. It started mostly when juke was first turned on (cold) and then progressed to all the time and now display on cd board is dark only randomly coming to life then dead again. power on the sub transformer is good and when it comes to life player works well. I am sending the board to be repaired.
check the white plastic actuator next to the gear box, it is probably broken and not actuating the microswitch underneath it, these often fail, it may look ok,, but it actually is loose and the set screw on top of it is not clamping it to the rod.
Spoke with "Doctor Jukebox" from Folsom, CA about a similar problem I had. You can find him
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
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.
