Hi there!

Hi Pete...I have a seeburg hm100b jukebox...the electronics have been restored...both the audio amp and the selector receiver seem to be working...however when a record is selected and contact is made w/ the stylus no sound is emitted...I have checked the stylus cartridge for connectivity and it is secure...please help if more information is required please let me know thank you.
Expert:  ITPeter replied 6 months ago.
If you haven't already replaced the stylus cartridge, then you may need to do this - even though it is making contact, it may be defective.If that doesn't work, test the voltage getting to the speakers and let me know the result.

Hi, just checking in on your question. How did things work out for you?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
hi pete i have just finished changing the stylus cartridge...and used a multimeter to determine if there was juice to the speakers...there is...i can hear faint feedback or amp buzz at the speaker itself...the resistance was between 10 and 7...i am not the sharpest tool in the shed when attempting to troubleshoot...thanks for checking in...what's next...??
Expert:  ITPeter replied 6 months ago.
There will always be resistance at the speaker, however is it receiving power (voltage)? If so, how much?

hi i checked the output at the amp speaker terminal..and at the speaker...the reading on the ac setting 2 on a scale up to 700 the out put was .043...which i assume signals some kind of issue...thanks...
Expert:  ITPeter replied 6 months ago.
It will be DC voltage - can you check on the DC setting?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
checked the dc setting...the multimeter on dc 20m indicated there is no current to the speaker...checked at the amp speaker terminals and speaker...
Expert:  ITPeter replied 6 months ago.
Ok, so there is no current getting to the speaker?If there is no current coming out of the amp then the amp is suspect.
