Is there any sort of auto-play option or random play option for the seeburg 100 models?

I've seen free play adapters that will let you make selections without having to put coins in the slot, but I don't believe a random play unit exists. I suppose it would be possible to design something around one of the many small microprocessor boards out there(Arduino comes to mind) and have it emulate a Seeburg wallbox that could randomly make selections.

It'd probably be easier to add a Bluetooth module and stream music to the jukebox amplifier from your phone or wire in an MP3 player to the amplifier and put it on shuffle.

I have an NSM CD jukebox that has an "attention" mode setting. About every 10 minutes, it will randomly pick a track and play it, hoping to get someone's attention and put more money in the machine.

Yes, it can be done. I've had my HF-100R on freeplay since I
restored it 30 or so years ago. Its been so long don't remember
the details but think it involved setting the coin stepper up one or
two positions from 'home' and disabling the decrement solenoid.

I believe yours uses the same basic mechanism.

Oops...I read 'autoplay' as 'freeplay'. No easy way to do that.
