An AMI jukebox.This works kind of. It plays and sounds good, but sometimes you can't choose what you want it to play. What might this be worth and are there ways to get this checked out and repaired?

I live in the Pacific Northwest and we have a lot of jukebox aficionados here that repair/restore machines. Sometimes you'll find that people that work on pinball machines and older stereo's also are qualified.

One worker mentions: check the "Selector Indicator Switch. If it's dirty and/or bent, it's an easy fix to cleaning and straighten."

Thanks for the info. Is the selector indicator switch the one that shows which selection is playing? The Central Control Computer has an led panel that does not light. Is that a sign that the computer could be bad? I pulled off all the white connectors and checked for any bent pins, but everything looked good.

I'm not sure. Might be a fuse actually? Here's a site where you can purchase and download jukebox maintenance and repair manuals (pdf format) for around $15 USD; yours is a "Romantica (1982)".
