There is an excellent explanation and fault finding guide for the Tormat

What I meant was that if there is a FAQ anywhere for jukers, the answer to
this problem should be in there.
However - a search at  for "tormat selection problem"
gave 19 hits, all in alt.collecting.juke.boxes, and a search at gave 7 hits, taking me to the pages of our Tony Miller, Geoff
Young, and Bill Bickers.
