Question about Wurlitzer Jukebox 1015 One More Time 100-Disc CD Changer
I have the late 1990's Wurlitzer OMT CD Juke Box.....First off, thank you for reponding to my request. It seems that finding someone to come over to the house to look at the Juke Box is turning out to be more difficult than I imagined. I really appreciate your help.
To answer your questions, the disc spins each time it is placed on the player (perhaps for a few seconds), then it stops. It repeats this cycle 3 more times. (for a total of 4 times).
I believe the time it takes from being placed on the disc player to being returned to the carousel is a consistent 50 seconds. It doesn't matter what disc is selected or track number. The results are always the same. No music is ever heard, however I do hear a faint "single pop" noise coming from the speakers when the CD is attempting to play.
Could this be related to that strange 2222 display when the machine is turned on. I bought the Juke Box last Thursday and it worked fine for about 24 hours.
Spoke with "Doctor Jukebox" from Folsom, CA about a similar problem I had. You can find him
Thanks Davejuke01 for explaining the "2222".
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 carousel.
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.

The CD is placed on the laser unit and then spins it to read the Table of Contents (i.e. how many tracks it has). If it can't read the CD it tries again and stops. After 47 seconds it puts it back in the carousel. Therefore you either have a VERY dirty CD, dirty laser eye (clean with cotton bud and meths or head cleaner) or more likely your laser unit is busted. You can get a swap/replacement for a broken one from The Jukebox Doctor in Sheffield.
The 47 is the amount of credits you have left when the machine is set on freeplay. If you make a few selections you will see it comes down one each time.
The 2222 is CD 22 track 22 which you play more than any other track. (It's the Most Popular Track).

Ok a few things it could be.
Firstly as it is spinning it could be simply be that the optical assembly is wrongly adjusted or even dirty.
The other least likely scenario is a progamming error - did you do any programming to the jukebox when you received it for things like how many cds it is holding and free play etc?
The reason I favour the first scenario is because I had exactly the same problem (although mine was not even spinning). The two things I did were to toggle the service switch on the S&CC board then switch the power on and off then give the magnetic clamp above the turntable a bit of a tap and voila it started working again! Not exactly scientific I know.
BTW do you have the manual - if not then here is the link for it to help you further.
This will also help you do any functional tests (chapter 13) to help you get to the bottom of the problem.
