Question about Audio Players & Recorders

I have a 1972 Seeburg that misses plays, rejects plays before they are done and will go all the way to the right and thinks it has picked up a record and get stuck there. Thanks in advance! David

Possible causes.
_Black and gray box connections are probably dirty.
_Keypad circuit board dirty (yes, this makes the jukebox make incorrect selections)
_Mis-adjusted end-of-record switch.
_In addition, a manual would help so you can go over the adjustments section to check all those and then, on top of everything else, it probably needs a lube job.
Seeburgs are the most complicated of the 45 jukes, so it might be time to call in a professional if you're not comfortable tinkering.
You can screw one up pretty bad if you aren't familiar with them.

What causes loud static noise on the right speaker of my 1972 seeburg sps 160 Olympic jukebox?

May have a bad connection - check for that. Reverse the speakers - if other speaker is now bogus then it is an issue with the amplifier for that right channel.

Seeburg selectomatic 200 [has been stored in garage for 30 years ] all funtions work properly except it will only play record for about 1 second, then eject & go to next selected record & play for...

1. Check to see that the end of record switch is OK or not shorted, same with the reject button on the back and all associated connections.
2. THESE THINGS NEED OIL! The trip lever (just to the right of the tonearm) may not be resetting fast enough, or at all, due to gummy grease. Buy the manual (eBay - any service man will insist that you have it.). It will show you where to lubricate everything. NO 3-in-1 or paraffin based oils.

1972 Seeburg, trouble opening back panel, buzzing volume sound...

Hi Rob,

When you open the front of the jukebox you will see on the rear of the jukebox is a lever that unlocks the rear door.

However if you have a problem with the sound the access to the amplifier is behind and above the keyboard, again there is a lever to open this access as well once you have opened the title door on the front of the jukebox.

Seeburg AY160 Spins as if record in place. will not reject.

Try removing the mechanism cover (power off). Turn it back on and try lifting the manual trip lever just to the right of the tonearm. This will cycle the mechanism. If it cycles but still won't engage and scan down the track, your clutch is stuck from lack of lubrication. Consult the manual, which you need to have. Try eBay - several people seel good reprints.
This is a common Seeburg problem and can sometimes be fixed IF you can get some oil into the clutch. Otherwise, you'll need to take the clutch tower off and that's best left to someone with experience.
IF you want to attempt it, you MUST have the manual as you'll have to set up and re do a bunch of adjustments after taking so much apart.

Wailing sound when 1971 seeburg juke box is started

I amnot very familiar with Seeburgs but the trip switch activates at the end of the record playing and THAT mutes the amp. The amp should also be muted until the tone arm lands on the record. So I would suggest the problem is in the amp.
