    Unfortunately you are probably out of luck.  Their shop and home were destroyed in a fire and I imagine it will be some time before they reopen.  At this point all I can suggest is to go with a competitors product.

    I have a Pla-Mor with a v1.4 emulator but have not run into this problem.  I would start with reformatting the SD.

    Right, neither of the ones I have are like that.  Wonder what prompted the variation?  I recently ran across an ad for another variant.  I have yet to see one with a call button.

    Looks good Scudie, did you go with the white backed selection numbers/letters to make them easier to see?

    Nope, just cut them to size, peeled of the backing and stuck them on the metal.

    A guy on Ebay sold me an incomplete set of NOS black labels so with the good ones I already had I had enough for the two SCs I’ve got.  I deleted the Album selection labels though – I only wanted single song selections.

    Whoever designed those selection labels did not have a long term view in mind.  I had to repaint all the pages after removing the labels.  I put together some replacements on MS PowerPoint that printed out pretty well.  I printed them on Printable Transparent Sticker Paper and used a paper cutter to get them to the right size – was happy with the result.  I’ll email the to you as .png you should be able to size them properly.  Also just photocopied the turn page/pricing labels I’ll send you that as well.

    Nuts, sorry to hear that.  I thought the original glass was silk screened and would have held up better.  I hoped that they considered that operators would occasionally have to clean the inside of the glass just to remove cigarette smoke residue.  On the other hand, now we know to be careful when cleaning the back side.

    Thanks Sooner, I’ll take a look at that, with the two SCs I have on one I used the Data Sync solution and the other came with a 6/10 fuse wired the same way.  I have noticed the “chatter” on both.  I have to say the SCs have proven more problematic than any of the other EM boxes I have worked on.

    I am very interested in a solution for the audio control.  I would really like to be able to control volume as the box was designed to.

    Thanks Scudie, after reading you email and going back to the manual I think I have the APU issues figured out.  Still have not decided I’m going to work this one next – there are other problems with it.  I’m out of emulators and waiting on them to restock.

    Right, I’m a little particular about the labels and warnings as well.  I have become fairly proficient at recreating them – started with pinballs but have done some for boxes as well.  Here are some I did for my 3W2-L56 boxes. I print them on adhesive backed vinyl.

    I am often amazed by how resilient the boxes and pins that I have are considering the abuse some have been through.  For some pinball collectors the graffiti is just another bit of the history of the machine but I do not like it on wallboxes.  Also, some folks can’t get over how  applying a little water to these EM devices is not harmful if done correctly.  Here is a good example of cleaning :

    That is certainly stripped!  Wonder what caused that much distortion – I have not encountered anything that severe yet.

    Well. I have had decent luck on tempered glass with a pumice based hand cleaner or jeweler’s rouge/mild polishing compound and a handheld rotary tool.  Not sure if the SC glass is tempered, I can’t find a place around here that will cut tempered that small.  I would practice on a bit of scrap glass before doing the box though.

    Sorry dimi, the WB2MP3 won’t work on the solid state WRF.  Check your post on the other forum you posted on.

    Great! Glad it is all good to go.  The folks at WB2MP3 have always been really helpful for me too.

    Nice booth setup Michael, good to see another wallbox up and making music whether connected to a juke or not.

    Hey Andrea, I am not an electrical engineer but if you are and are familiar with how to utilize an oscilloscope you may be able to interpret the signal a W4-L56 pulse generator produces and then convert that 117/220v signal to the 24v pulse input a WB2MP3 needs..  Here is a pretty good explanation of the 24v pulse cycle with oscilloscope readings:  https://hecgeek.blogspot.com/2017/10/wall-o-matic-interface-3.html

    Ehi Andrea, non sono un ingegnere elettrico, ma se hai familiarità con come utilizzare un oscilloscopio potresti essere in grado di interpretare il segnale prodotto da un generatore di impulsi W4-L56 e quindi convertire quel segnale 117 / 220v nell’ingresso a impulsi 24v un WB2MP3 ha bisogno .. Ecco una spiegazione abbastanza buona del ciclo di impulsi 24v con letture dell’oscilloscopio
