I purchased a Crosley all-in one system. I really enjoy it and was playing some Christmas albums and when I went back to play some more the needle on the turntable would not work... it would just go all the way to the end of the record and stop... scanning over the record instead of playing it... Is this a needle problem or an unbalance problem or a spring problem or what? Please help.

if the arm is automated and someone forced it to move, it could be that a gear is jammed. Open the unit to access the mechanical mechanisms and look for any stuck gears or pieces, turn on the unit and see that the motor is attempting to respond.
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.)
The problem is in the motor of the turntable, the regulator is not putting out the correct voltage to the motor, and the circuit is often built into the motor making it impossible to service. The only option is motor replacement.
I think I can help you with the tape part, but as for the CD, that's a whole different story.
First, you should reset the unit by holding down the stop button (clear), and then pressing the power button. Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared, including the radio stations, clock, etc.
Check if deck 1 is now playing.
I had a similar problem with my AIWA NSX-AJ310, and after some digging up, I realised that the belts were busted. They're not hard to replace though, unless you don't trust yourself to replace them. If you don't, let a qualified technician see about that for you.
The CD player in my system has retired also, so, we're in the same boat as with regard to that issue!!
not really enough info at all. to start a record you take the tone arm(the thing with the needle...) and slightly move it to the right until it clicks and then the record will start. make sure youve taken off all the tape on the turntable and make sure its set to phono
chack and see what type of CD you are using. i have been having the same issue. i actually found out that the CD's i use to play songs, and etc are "CD-R". the compatible CD's for my (RCA DIGITAL AUDIO SYSTEM RS2603) sterio are CD-RW's or compact disc that you find on production music like albums, etc. hope this helped !
All Aiwas are prone to this problem. The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost. I have 2, both probmatic in this direction. I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix. Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly, not worth getting fixed. It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own. Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership. All the best: jamz
