Question about Crosley Audio Players & Recorders
I just purchased a Crosley CR245 and the 45 records won't play all the way through. The needle automatically picks up before the record finishes playing. I called the Radio Shack where I purchased it and they say there could be an adjustment that needs to be made, but don't know how or where. Of course, I can't get away from the Crosley phone number in the manual. Any help???
I FIGURED IT OUT! Here's how to fix the problem. 1. Remove the c clamp that holds your turntable in the box. Do this slowly so you don't over stretch or break your belt. 2. There are 3 screws holding the entire record player mechanism in the box. Take those out. 3. Look just under where the arm (the thing that holds the needle stylus) attaches to the mechanism. See that long wire rod that runs from that spot to just about the center of the turntable? It's being held at the arm by a little plastic piece that has a screw. The screw needs to be tightened. Once you tighten the screw, that will make is so that the arm has to be moved less to the right to start the record, and more to the left to turn it off. This makes it possible for you to hear the end of your songs! 4. Screw the mechanism back in the box (not too tight, you want those shock mounts to work). 5. To get the belt back on the wheel, first look under the wheel. See the big circle that is about half the size of the wheel? Place the belt around that. 6. Now look further out on the wheel. Do you see a plastic peg (actually 2 pegs....they are across from each other on the wheel)? Stretch the belt to one of the pegs. 7. Place the wheel back on the mechanism with the stretched part over the motor. Now spin the wheel slowly until the belt falls onto the motor. 8. Reattach the c clamp on the wheel and you're all set. Oh, I forgot to mention that you should put a record on and make sure you adjusted that screw under the arm enough. I had to do mine a couple of times. Hope this is helpful! Here's a video I found that better explains how to get the belt back on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaW84Z6GMVs
