I just purchased a record player, CD burner combo. The tonearm is stiff, when the arm gets to about the fourth song on the album. It won't go over any further and finish the album, it stays there and sounds like it's stuck on a scratch.

The Phono/Aux input has a slider switch to the left of it to choose whether to make it a regular line-in jack or to utilize the phono stage. The ground terminal is just above the jacks. The Beogram 4002 likely has a muting circuit that's in effect when the tonearm is in the lift position, which would explain the lack of hum til the stylus lowered to the record.
It's possible your weight adjustment has been mis-adjusted since you last used your turntable. On the tonearm, there should be a weight adjustment wheel. Turn this all the way towards the needle (IN). Now, adjust it backwards until there is no resistance in the tone arm - this is your zero point, reset the wheel on the weight adjustment knob to read 0. Now, adjust it forward to 3 grams of downward pressure. This is usually the minimum amount of force needed on a record. If it still skates at this setting, adjust it with gradual amounts of greater force until the skating stops.
OK a blast from the past. There is a switch that is in the base which senses that the cover is closed and this unlocks the arm and disk motor can rotate. The reason that the disk rotates when the cover is up is because this allows the disk to spin up to speed before the arm comes down. Once the cover comes down the switch unlocks the arm and the arm then moves this switch also can stop the disk if the arm does not unlock.
If your unit is a different model, please post a comment with that model number. I wish that I had better news for you.
Cindy Wells (on those shelf systems that can burn a CD, place a blank CD-R or CD-RW (if supported) in the disc tray. Use the function button to set the recording source (Phono with the Croseley units). Place the tape to record in the tape deck and press play reach a point a bit before the desired point to start the recording. (Some also will record from the radio, turntable, or other device. Again start the source playing.) Then press CD Record. Press Stop when you want the recording to stop or when one side of the tape/LP is finished. (Some have a Split Track button if you want to identify every track. Press this during the silent period between songs.) Otherwise, you will get one track per side with tapes/LPs.)
Hi, First make sure yoou are using correct cds. You need CDR Audio discs not blank pc media type (Yes they are different). Once you have the disc type right, make sure you are finalizing the disc as they will not play in other machines until u do this
I know that some players were not designed to recognise some formats of CD, often those created by computer drives. But if it did play them it must have developed a fault in the electronics part that recognises CD formats. Hence it's problem now. Without a service manual perhaps a tricky thing to put right.
