Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

I have a Rockola 450 jukebox that has developed a hum when it is on - also when a selection is made it plays another song, usually the one immediately preceding it. I have not been able to find anyone who repairs in the Louisville KY area. Is any of this something I could repair myself? The hum is my biggest concern. The rest I can live with. Please help.

I don't remember if this year/model has a tube amplifier or not. If it were just the hum, I would say it's time to have the tubes checked out or replaced. Since you are having malfunctions with the operation of the mechanical processes as well, my experience with these has been: Best case - a bad ground in the electronics. More than half of the ones I've fixed for people (with similar problems), I fixed by removing the electronic components, cleaning connectors, checking wires, and bolting everything back down tight. This is something you can do. (have you moved the jukebox lately? has it been jolted?) Worst Case - time and heat have caused a component on a circuit board to fail, or go out of tolerance. This will require an electronics repairman, and likely access to the schematic diagrams of the board(s). The schematics of these old jukeboxes are available for free online. There are forums specifically for Rockola Jukeboxes, which have dedicated repair sections you can ask other owners of the same vintage for help.

What causes a Rockola jukebox not to index?


I might be wrong about this but check inside for a switch marked Scan/off/play inside at the front of the mech. It should be in play position. Also check any circuit breakers and reset them on the upper back of the machine (inside). They look like the clicky end of a ball point pen.
After that I am stuck.

Been given a grade 5 Rockola 160 433, need a copy of the service manual


Contact the folks at www.victoryglass.com and tell them the make and model of your jukebox. They will have the manual set for around $50. Also, they bought out the entire Rockola factory parts inventory. So if by chance you needed Rockola parts, they would have it.

How do you set the Rockola 480 to free play?


For free play on Rock-Ola 480. Open your jukebox, on the right,you will see a large metal box marked Profit Setter. In this box are Sections A, B and D. In section D, you will see very small white buttons on a pink background. Push ALL of the buttons in section D to the left with a pen.It will play for free until changed. For money, put it back like it was. It will also play all songs automatically. If you wanna know that, e-mail to varnett1@woh.rr.com

CD palyer will not play all Songs


It sounds like the CD has to be initialized, so the jukebox knows how many songs are on the specific CD.

To initialize a CD, go into service mode, input code 31, then index the cd number (two digits), then hit "popular". return the jukebox to play mode.
The carousel should scan and load the CD you initialized, and then return it to it's slot.

It should now be able to play any song on the CD you select.
