R84 Rowe Turntable runs continuously and record will not cancel
« on: October 07, 2017, 11:43:57 pm »
Hi:
Making progress on my project R-84, but I've run into a couple of problems.  The turntable runs continuously and a record will not cancel after play or by the cancel button.  When the machine is turned on, the magazine will make a full revolution and stop.  With credits established, it will then allow the selection of a record and then place the record on the turntable as it should.  It will not return the record to the magazine.  I have the service manual for this box, I'm just not as well versed on the Rowes as I am Rockolas.  Thanks in advance for giving me a starting point or ideas about the possible problem.

If you press the cancel button on the mechanism does the cancel led light on the Mechanism Control?
When the service switch is in the service position and you press the cancel button what happens?

Thanks for your reply Alan. 
When I pressed the cancel switch the cancel LED lit, also, when in the service mode, pressing the cancel switch caused the magazine to scan.
However, now I have a whole different set of symptoms/problems.  I reseated all the connectors and now the  magazine scans continuously.  The following mech control LED's are lit:  cancel, opt. switch home, mag motor and detent.  The same conditions occured when I installed another computer control center.
I am really confused.  I have a spare mech control board, which is a 4-07221-05, but it does not have the auto mix connection on it.  I don't need the auto mix function.  Will it still work in place of the original mech board (4-07221-01)?  Does this even sound like a mech control board issue?  Thanks.  Randy.

Hi Randy,

Yes the Mechanism Control can be fitted but you may have to adjust the home and index trimmer pots.This mechanism control was for use on the R-89 to R-94 jukeboxes, you would find the adjustements in one of these manuals.

Have you checked the opto switch adjustments? The reason I ask is that you have said that the opto switch home led is alway lit, it should only light when it gets to number 99, the index led will flash at every slot (basically evey tooth on the large gear that the opto switch fits over.

Alan
