Jukebox Philips CD drive laser repair kit Wurlitzer, Rock ola, Rowe AMI, NSM, SEEBURG


Jukeboxes have been an iconic symbol of music and entertainment for decades, evoking a sense of nostalgia and bringing back memories of a bygone era. These magnificent machines have the power to transport us to a time when music was tangible, and every song had the ability to touch our souls. However, like any mechanical device, jukeboxes are susceptible to wear and tear, and one common issue that can arise is the failure of the CD drive laser.

The CD drive laser plays a vital role in the jukebox’s ability to read and play music from CDs, ensuring that every note and melody is faithfully reproduced. When this crucial component starts to falter, it can lead to a range of frustrating symptoms that diminish the joy of listening to your favorite tunes. CDs may refuse to spin, play for a brief moment before abruptly stopping, or even produce an unsettling clicking sound. These signs indicate that the laser pickup diode in your CD drive may need repair or replacement.

Fortunately, there are professional repair services available specifically designed to address these laser issues and restore the functionality of your jukebox’s CD drive. Whether you own a Rowe AMI, Rock-ola, WURLITZER, NSM, or SEEBURG jukebox, expert technicians can provide the necessary expertise to repair the Philips CD PRO VAU 1255 / 1254 or CDM12 IND / VAU 1252 CD drives, ensuring that the music never stops.
