Question about Audio & Video Receivers

3 Answers

I have a Wurlitzer Omni 3000 organ that was given to me. When I turn it on, everything lights up but not getting any sound except in piano mode. With volume turned to maximum, you can very faintly hear the piano notes. Haven't been able to locate any technician in this area. Are there any troubleshooting publications available for this organ? What would you suggest?

    The organ lights up when turned on but has no volume. When I vacumned the living room floor, I accidently turned the bench over, it hit the big pedal and after that it had no volume. I called a technician and he said the organs were built to play out after i5 years. I do not believe this organ is made so c heaply because Wurlitzer has such a good name. Marylou Rosener I can be reached at marylourosener@charter.net Any help will be appreciated.

You might have disengaged the " Big Pedal" called the expression pedal either the leakage or the wiring. Have someone check that out it where I would start.

Hello!
I had several friends over the years who've had Wurlizer organs and they always "swear" by them. Guess they would be somewhat like Maytag products.

Anyway, I called one of them and she said she finally was able to get a partial solution from a friend of hers.

However crazy this sounds, she assures me that this procedure helped:

Look on the middle of the back of the organ, equidistant from corner to corner. There should be a knob of sorts which is kind of gold or bronze color. If the numbers haven't worn off, they should be around this knob. She said it works like this: turn the knob three times to the right, then four times to the left, and then push up. This supposedly resets the mechanism inside the organ that was loosened when your bench contacted the big pedal.

It's certainly worth a try, isn't it?

The keys on my CPL130 piano are intermittently failing to sound the c's and f sharps. All the other notes appear to be OK. what could be the problem and what might be the remedy. Have had the piano for...


well..that is caused by one of three things

a. the sound board(really a digital one) could have some glitches on those keys.

b. the tone recognition firmware, which looks for particular 'keys' may need to be revised and updated

c. is it the case that all 'C' and F# are bad, then it's most likely digital and not mechanical..

please confirm actual failure mode..

My pioneer vsx815 is in protect mode i disconnected everything but the blue light continues to blink when i plug it in. What can I do to get it out of protect mode?


If you reboot the receiver with nothing connected to it except the power cable and it is still in Protection, there is an internal component that has gone bad.

Hi, I found a Wurlitzer organ that I am thinking of buying but the D, D#, F and F# keys don't work of the upper and lower key boards. The keys sound responsive but don't make the noise that an organ key...


You may have trouble finding the parts for that. But if you know a place where to get the parts for such brand and model then you just have to buy replacement for the rubber contacts of all the keys, it seems though sequencial keys maybe it got dirtied by some liquid and the owner did not try to clean and dry. maybe you can have it checked or try to keep a closer look in the keys, the area that keys doesnt work if any sign of liquid spill before. no use getting it if you find some sign of it.

No sound


1. check if the amp is in PROTECTION mode (might be a bad speaker or shorted output)
2. check the 'MUTE' switch
3. try to use the FM/AM mode to isolate an input source. If there is sound then check input source.
4. ...still no sound have a techinician check it.

Wurlitzer organ --need manual


I can make a copy of my owner's manual and send it to you. It's for a Wurlitzer Model 4430, also from the 1940s, 50s and 60s like the one you have. Would that maybe help? All I'd ask for is a couple of bucks for printing and shipping costs. If you want it, just reply to this post with an address or some way to contact you in order for me to obtain an address; I may be able to be talked into making a digital copy and emailing it to you if that's even legal. I'm not sure. You can look into that for me and let me know what you want/need :-)

Sincerely,
The Organ Donor
