Is there anyone out there that can help with my Rock ola 490, ( please! )
Now here's the problem, I repaired the mechanism and it works fine but then it stops after the record is placed on the turntable I can trip it and the needle arm go over but there's no sound. (jukebox Fan)

The stylus might be worn or of the wrong type. A simple tone arm needs a round stylus and if an elliptical type (intended for a long S-shaped tone arm) has been fitted by mistake it could skip.
If nothing is wrong there, the remaining conclusion is either the mechanism is maladjusted or the tonearm bearing has a tight spot. In that case the tone arm should be removed and the shaft examined under strong magnification and any irregularities carefully removed, eased, blended in using a very fine abrasive (12,000 - 20,000 grit) and then ensuring the shaft and bearing is thoroughly clean apply a little very light machine oil and reassemble and readjust the playing weight...
That depends if you have skp out or a head phone jack .If so the RCA out jack would
have to go to the input of your amp.
or the head phone jack could directley
drive a small set speakers , the 1/4 or 1/8
head phone jack plug wire from a old
pair of head phones would be strip and
wired to small external spk , or driectly
to the auido amp But keep the volume
on the Rock Ola very low if you
chose the latter ,as not to over drive
