Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a Rowe Ami CMM-1 cadette deluxe jukebox and suddently it stopped playing songs. It seems to work ok mechanically, if I lift the needle arm and push it to the right to trigger the record change it does so...but the turn table will not spin to play the song. Any help would be great, the manuals are expensive.

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.

SOURCE: Record tracking problem

Hello,

You say you have a Rowe Ami R-92 and have oiled or lubed it.
The first thing to do is to strip down the mechanism (carousel) and remove all traces of any oil or gease. Rowe Ami jukeboxes of this period should be lubrication free.

Your problem may be down to the tone arm catching on something an issue with a damaged tone arm cam or I have seen it where the turntable motor starts to revolve the wrong way round which can also produce this fault.

SOURCE: 45 (record) Jukebox. While playing the jukebox

Hello,

Have you checked all the fuses or circuit breakers on the jukebox?
Are all the power supply led's lit?
Make sure that all the connection plugs into the boards are fully seated and making good connections.

After checking the above if the fault remains you will need to contact a Wurlitzer service engineer.

SOURCE: I have a Rowe AMI

Hi divinvstr,

Please check if the switch on the Central Control Computer (CCC) is set to record, it will not work if it is set to video. Please check the following as Rowe Ami jukeboxes are prone to dry joints.

1. Please check the power supply PCB (printed circuit board)

2. CCC

3. Mechanism Control Board

4. When taking out the plugs pull on the plugs (not the wires)

5. 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).

6. Re-solder any suspect joints on all of the boards and refit into the jukebox and test.

7. If this does not cure the problem then the boards will need to be sent to a Rowe Ami specialist.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Rowe Ami Jukebox buttons do not unleash


Hello Pedro,

You need to unlock the top door of the jukebox so you can operate the catches to get to the keyboard. The open relays R1 & R5 which are normally under a plastic cover, the open contacts on these relays need cleaning. Do not use any form of switch cleaner, just make a paper taper and pull this through the contacts to clean the contact tips.

Hello,

If your Rowe Ami is indeed a 1974 model it will be a TI-2 or CTI-1 (chest style jukebox) this era of jukebox uses a search unit to push out selected pins on the unit A side and B side for the mechanism to search for and play.
If the search unit is pushing out the correct pins but the mechanism is not scanning to select those selections, it could be that the mechanism is skipping over the pins or it could be that the search unit is not pushing out any pins at all with the search unit motor just spinning around.

If you are in the UK then I could help you.
If you are in the USA try posting a request for help on www.phonoland.com or on www.collectingbanter.com

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.

Record tracking problem


There is a switch, or lever to a switch, that detects the end of the arm travel. For some reason, it is being tripped early. Try to open it up, and see what you can see. It doesn't sound like a broken part, but a dislodged part, maybe. That's all I remember, only had this problem once, years ago.

Have a Rowe Ami mmcd-1 jukebox but having keypad problems


Hello,

Rowe Ami jukeboxes are prone to dry joints (called cold joints in the USA), this is cracking around the soldered connection pins that connect the wiringing to the circuit boards. If you can solder correctly then I would advise you to check all of the boards for cracking around any of the pins on the boards. So check out the following:-
Power supply board
CCC
Mechanism control/decoder
Keyboard

I would check out the Keyboard/Display the display board controls the title flip buttons.
I have seen a nuber of brand new display units for sale in the USA on Ebay for very little money.
When these were first made they were an arm and a leg. If you bought the combined unit that was put into the HML hideaways you could refit into your jukebox.

If You are not good at soldering then my advice would be send the boards to a Rowe Ami specialist for testing/repair.
