Question about Crosley CR78 CD Shelf System

Open Question

Crosley CD/Turntable/Radio/Tape Deck

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.

SOURCE: can't play records on my crosley cr66 turntable

You have to lift the tonearm up, and move it to the right slightly. This starts the turntable moving.

Arm stuck in middle of turntable won't move forward or return to rest

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.

Crosely won't play usb

If it's a turntable with a usb connector, those connections are usually outputs only. USB on a turntable is used to output the audio to a computer to rip albums to digital audio.

How to burn a Cd

The Sony MHC-BX2 can record from a CD to a cassette tape. This model doesn't have a CD burner. The manual for the MHC-BX2 is available from Sony support: . See page 12 of the PDF.

If your unit is a different model, please post a comment with that model number. I wish that I had better news for you.

(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.)

How can i slow down the turn table on a crosley cr 66 multiplayer with no control speed and it don't work pulling the arm to the right I tried that not helpful

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 have a nsx-a508 unit,the 2nd tape deck got stuck i was able to open it but now neither deck plays and the cd player did work when this happened originally but does not work now ,the lights all come...

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!!

Hope my solution was helpful!!

The turntable is not moving at all!!!..

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

Clicking sound in tape deck

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
