Here is a 45rpm Rowe Jukebox model R86 we fixed up for a happy owner. This one had a bad CPU Chip that required an upgrade since the chip is no longer available. The Mech controller board needed all the soldered pins replaced as well as the pins in the friction plugs. The amplifier needed minor cleaning of the plugs, controls and switches. The record mechanism needed lubrication and adjustments. When finished it plays load and proud once again! The workorder service notes follow:
