Question about Wurlitzer Jukebox 1015 One More Time 100-Disc CD Changer

3 Answers

1015 Display Flashing #8!

Arm carrying CD swinging back & forth between stack and player without letting it play. Pressed some levers inside and got one CD to play. Could not program additional selections. Also noticed some discs had doubled up and were out of sequence on the rack.

    Thanks Duncan!

    Actually, I found the problem for that issue: A 7cent plastic cam had loosened from the shaft to the right of the CD carousel. It is L-shaped. Once I tightened that up it resumed perfectly normal operation. It selects the correct disc, it puts it back exactly where it belongs.

    Regrettably, it does not read and play the CDs. I noticed to the right of the lens/turntable assembly is a small openng with three buttons and a numeric display. By changing the number (1,2,3,4) I determined that I was able to select the number of "tries" the laser had to read and play the selection. It is factory set to (2). I set it to differnent values - still no dice.

    I have wiped the discs and gently blew off the laser lens with my own breath, so it looks like a laser alignment problem - UGG!!

    Also, Wurlitzer no longer exists. I dialed the USA number on the back of the setup & operation manual - no longer in service.

    Any suggs?

#8 showing with arm swinging back and forth means that the amplifier either needs adjusting (set too loud) and/or fuse Si3 needs changing.

Sounds like you may have a "timing" problem with the changer mechinism. Could be a worn gear or some broken teeth on some gear or some slack in the mesh between gears and it jumped a few teeth. That would explain the doubling up and out of sequence problem with the rack and it might be the problem with it not playing too.

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249

Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John.

Flashing 8 on display


A flashing 8 on the display indicates that the Selection and Credit Computer hasn't detected the gripper arm has returned to it's normal rest position over the CD carrier (where the CDs are stored). It can be caused by several factors:

1. Gripper motor switch has been turned off
2. K7 microswitch or actuator is defective
3. Blown fuse in amplifier
4. Defective gripper motor
5. Open latch solenoid coil
6. Defective Selection and Credit Computer

Cd crashes

The arm is sprung. It is catching on something so the motor is driving , tightening the spring, then it lets go and slams the arm over.

Wurlitzer arm keeps running

check the white plastic actuator next to the gear box, it is probably broken and not actuating the microswitch underneath it, these often fail, it may look ok,, but it actually is loose and the set screw on top of it is not clamping it to the rod.

Cd not playing

If you look at the far side of the gripper arm towards the back of the machine, at the base, you will see a white bracket like a duck's bill. This has come loose or broken. You can prove this is the problem by pressing down on it and clicking the microswitch as the gripper reaches back over the carousel.

Wurlitzer one more time 1015 flashign #8

It's the 'duck bill' bracket on the shaft near the gear box. On the others side of the white gears at the base of the tone arm. There's a white bracket that dips and clicks a microswitch when the gripper arm is over the carousel. It's come loose. Press it with your finger when the gripper arm is over the carousel and it will stop. Tighten it in that position..

Record won't retract

If it isn't making any move to retract the tray it's probably the trip switch. If you look in the back and follow the mechanics under the tone arm you'll see how it closes a switch as the arm goes to the centre of the record. Clean the switch or adjust it.

If it is half returning the tray it is the tray stack all gummed up. Use Servisol Silicon spray or have it rebuilt by someone who knows how.
