Hello,

Did you lock down the jukebox mechanism (caurosel) during transportation?

Make sure that all the plugs that go to the all the circuit boards are fully seated, Unplug each in turn and plug back in MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE JUKBOX FIRST if this does not sort out your problem look at the microswitches on the transfer motor (this is the mptor that tranfers the CD onto the deck) the spades on the microswitches are uninsulated so they can short out if pressed together.

The other main problem with Rowe Ami is that the boards are prone to the connection pins having dry joints (cold joints in the USA) on the soldinging to these connection pins.

It may be as well having all the boards tested by a Rowe Ami specialist.
In the USA the best guy is Bruce Wentworth (search for his details on Ebay by putting in Bruce Wentworth jukebox) or you could contact me in the UK.

I have Rowe AMI 100 CD jukebox. I replaced CDPRO2 Optical Laser-lens and sound still cuts in and out. At times it can't pick up the sound and the cd stops and tries again.


Watch the motor that moves the lens assembly while a CD is playing. It doesn't take much movement to stall the optics so if a gear is slightly binding, that would be enough to cause your problem. Sometimes using a very light machine oil like that is used on a sewing machine on the pivot points will help the gears. A lithium type grease on the rails that the optics moves on may have dried a little, so be sure to check that area too.

Rowe Nostalgia jukebox will only play a few of the numbers of the 100 cd;s. Is there anyway to reset it so it will play all numbers?


Hello,

You will need to go into the programming section on the menu.
I suggest that if you do not have a manual that you obtain one from Rowe Ami, Victory Glass or distribution.

Have you initalised all of the CD's on your jukebox? Every time you replace a CD you have to initalise it.

WURLITZER OMT CD 100 D picking problem


Hello J.P.,

You need to get the manual for this jukebox.
You have to however confirm what the manufacturer and the model number of this is. The One More Time was made by the following manufacturers:-
Wurlizer, Rowe Ami, Rock Ola, Antique Apperatus and Sound Leisure.
Look for a serial plate on the back of the jukebox in order to get any information.
You can get manuals in the USA from www.victoryglass.com

How do I slow the speed of the 45s on my rowe r-92 jukebox .The records are playing a little too fast


Hi,

The turntable motor on the jukebox range of R-84 to R-93 is none adjustable.
If you are in the USA then the motor operates on 60hz but in Europe it would have to be on 50hz to do this a different pulley is used.

The Rowe Ami part numbers are as followes:-

30791907 Turntable Motor Assembly 60hz
30791908 Turntable Motor Assembly 50hz
21817801 Motor Pulley 60hz
21817802 Motor Pulley 50hz

These can be ordered from a Rowe Ami dealer or you could try www.victoryglass.com

My cd rowe ami jukebox is stuck in scan/transfer mode


Hello,

You say you do not have the digital display lite up, have you checked all of the breakers on the power supply?
If not do so. Rowe Ami jukeboxes are very prone to dry joints (cold joints in the USA) this is cracking around the soldered pin on the connections to the boards.
If you can solder correctly then check out the printed circuit board on the power supply. I would retest and see if the display now lights after correcting a fault on the power supply.
If that has not made any difference then proceed to the Mechanism Control Board and the Central Control Computer (CCC) and check again for dry joints.

If you can not solder with any confidence then send in your boards to a Rowe Ami specialist for testing/repair.

Song Programming


Hello,

With regards to your problem with the Rowe Ami 100 cd jukebox.
Do you have a manual, if not I suggest you buy a printer manual or one on CD and refer to the Programming and Installation section.

In order for the jukebox to know about the cd's that are installed in the jukebox it has to initialize all or the changed cd's that have been replaced within the jukebox.

Put the jukebox into the Service Mode (the service mode should appear on the display)
Type 3 to select the Initialize sub menu
Type 0 and full initialize will appear on the display
Press Popular to start the initialization
Place the jukebox service switch into the normal mode

Initiazation will take around 30 minutes to complete.

Rowe jukebox


Hello,

I take it that the jukebox accepts selections when you type them in. Also that you have tried selecting the A side and the B side records.
Is the switch on the CCC (Central Control Computer) set to Record it should not be set to Video.

Rowe Ami jukeboxes are very pone to dry (cold in the USA) joints.
If you can solder then the following items need to checked for dry joints.

Power Supply PCB (printed circuit board)
CCC
Mechanism Control Board

When taking out the plugs pull on the plugs (not the wires)
Look on the soldered side where the connectors pins are fitted for any cracking around the soldered joint ( this is the sign of a dry joint).
Resolder any suspect joints on all of the boards and refit into the jukebox and test.

If this does not cure the problem then the boards will be needed to be sent to a Rowe Ami specalist, I am one of these in the UK.
